Revenge of the Skanks

Longtime readers of mwbh know that we have addressed the issue of provocative dress by young women at inopportune venues, and that we have referred to them as "skanks." It would surely have been clear that the term specifically applied to the manner of dress, and was not an attempt to assign the charge of sexual promiscuity. Nevertheless...

Vogue cover model Liskula Cohen is entitled to learn the identity of the person who slammed her on the blog Skanks In NYC, a judge in New York ruled Monday.

Judge Joan Madden agreed with Cohen that the blog, which referred to Cohen as a "skank," potentially defamed her.

"The thrust of the blog is that petitioner is a sexually promiscuous woman," Madden wrote...

Hah! That may have been someone else's "thrust," but we "thrust" to the beat of our own drummer around these parts. This writer stands squarely behind his writing on the subject.

For the moment.
