Words of the Week: Phyllis Chesler

You know how some people threaten to cancel magazine subscriptions because of the covers that greet them (and their families) when they take the new issue out from the mailbox? Well, right now I’m seriously considering canceling my TIME subscription. Not because the cover (issue date: September 13, 2010) was lewd or inappropriate for young eyes. But rather, because the cover was coyly outrageous, unfair, offensive, and inappropriate for any eyes.

And so I share with you some wise words from Phyllis Chesler, motivated by this cover story.

I hope that people more fully understand that TIME Magazine as well as countless other media in the Western world, can no longer be trusted to tell the truth.

So sad. But so true.
