Born to Be Banned

You know me. I could never pass up a good conspiracy theory.

Fresh off the heels of AOL's alleged corporate malfeasance, former QueerSighted blogger Renee Gannon reports that her Lesbiatopia website has been banned from Digg, one of the Web's most popular social bookmarking sites. Is this part of a Digg pattern of—GASP!—misogyny and homophobia? You decide.

    Thank you Prince!!!


  2. Thank you Prince

    This week the site I help author with Renee was banned from the popular internet book marking site Digg as was another Lesbian authored site called a Girl in short shorts. E mails to digg asking why have to date gone unanswered.

    I have a couple of posts up on our site about it... and I know that this is a busy time for all of you but please, if you could take just a minute to weigh in on all of this.

    And I leave you with this little poem today.

    First the Nazis came…
    First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a communist;
    Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a socialist;
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a trade unionist;
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    because I was not a Jew;
    Then they came for me—
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.
    ~Martin Niemöller

    This week they came for Lesbiatopia.. care to speak?
