Correction and retraction regarding suicide girls

Aparantly I and many others misread the Suicide Girls' statement about withdrawing pictures from the SGs' website. John Markos O'Neill in the comments for an earlier post, links to a page at Boing Boing where an SG represetantive explains that they were not contacted directly by the FBI asking them to remove pictures, but removed the images preemptively. While this is still a case of a chilling effect on speech, it nullifies my claim that the act of censorship was caused by the Christian Rights' neurotic fear of Goths.

Boing Boing also discusses a dispute between SG and its models which indicates that SG may not be the land of perfect feminist porn after all.
