Hoisted by her own petard when all she wanted was a double headed dildo.

Janis Ian gets booted from Facebook for reposting lewd cartoon

   New York Post


Sixties folkie Janis Ian is fighting The Man again — but this time the man is Mark Zuckerberg.
Ian — whose early recordings were censored because of their socially progressive themes — has been banned from Facebook after reposting a cartoon showing an elderly woman with incongruously perky breasts standing naked in front of a mirror with the caption, “Beauty fades, but implants last forever.”
The “At Seventeen” singer was locked out of the site for 24 hours, then posted the image again only to be given the boot again.
Her wife, Patricia Snyder, told Ian’ s 400,000 followers that they believe the ban’s the work of a troll Ian blocked from her page for making racist remarks, who then complained about the cartoon in retaliation.

Unlike Milo's ban on Twitter, she will probably get back in. While a cartoon about an old lady's perky boobs is hardly a basis to ban someone, there is a different standard when you are on the left.

That's a funny cartoon. I'm laughing just reading about it.

That's Janis Ian? Fuck, I thought it was Jimmy Carter in drag or attempting it.

Why do all RMPC women look like like this and age like this? They all have that same look of aging. Its fucking bizarre.

It's the patchouli oil.

@Meth - be thankful - it is one of nature's warning signs, you know, like the stripes on a coral snake.

Janis Ian was always too conspicuously sensitive for my taste. She may be a good candidate for my "Rock Bottoms For Rodham" series.
