Bol’s First Amendment Rights Threatened
Yesterday, I was researching a post about this awesome picture of Ashley Logan I found, and I stumbled upon a post where yet another woman was trying to ether me.
So many women have tried to ether me over the years. I wish I’d kept track of them, just so I’d know how many. One of the very first comments on my blog, way back in like ’03, was some ignorant black chick going off on me. Little did she know that she’d go down in history (amongst other places). And I know Ashley Logan said, in that video where she went off on me, that she knows of a number of models who have a problem with yours truly.
I’m not sure who this woman Maya the B is. She presents herself as being an important figure in the music industry, but it isn’t clear to me what she does, if anything. Obviously she’s not that important, if she wrote this post three weeks ago, and no one saw fit to comment until I posted a link to it on Twitter. I checked the rest of her site, and it appears to be just as much of a ghost town as the site I’m not allowed to mention anymore.
She said Ashley Logan was a friend of hers, which I took to mean that the two of them might have worked in the same strip club, up in the Bronx. She looks like she might be in that line of work. If she was about 10 years younger, she could be featured on a site called 8th Street Latinas.
Or who knows, maybe she’s a lawyer. In her post, she tries to claim that I’ve run afoul of the law by passing along the information that Ashley Logan may or may not have herpes. The post actually begins with a definition of the term defamation of character.
In law, defamation (also called calumny, libel (for written publications), slander (for spoken word), and vilification) is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government or nation a negative image. It is usually, but not always, a requirement that this claim be false and that the publication is communicated to someone other than the person defamed (the claimant).
Now, you guys know I’m no expert on the law. Like the Craigslist killer, I was pre-med. But I’m pretty sure I don’t have anything to worry about here.
First of all, and I want to make this clear, lest something happen to this post before it’s preserved, for posterity, in Google’s cache (like the one about she who shall not be named), I never said Ashley Logan had herpes. She might have herpes, or she might not. It’d be hard for me to say, without taking a close look at her vagine. Yeah, I’ve gotten a pretty good look at it, in the various videos of her over on World Star, but not to the point where I’d be confident making a medical diagnosis.
All I did was post an email from someone claiming Ashley Logan has herpes, and I’m pretty sure that’s covered under the first amendment, even though I couldn’t tell you what exactly the first amendment says. (I don’t remember it having any specific provisions with regard to herpes.) But I’m looking at this definition of defamation of character, and I’m thinking that it would only apply to me if I was the one saying she’s got the herp. And I happen to know, because I stay reading the paper, that a journalist is allowed to protect his sources – provided there aren’t any national security implications, in which case fuck your rights. So she’ll just have to keep on wondering who sent me that email.
Anyway, if Ashley Logan really doesn’t have herpes, you’d think it would be easy for her to go get a test saying she doesn’t. Slim Thug, aka Stayve, went and got a test, back when it was rumored he was handing out AIDS, as if it was coupons for a free car wash. Ashley Logan could get her twat checked out, post the results on the Internets, and this would be over and done with. Though I’m not sure if I’d believe her, if I wasn’t there overlooking the exam (which I’d be willing to fly myself out for). Otherwise, we wouldn’t know if she didn’t just make those results herself, using Microsoft Office. You know how women are good at using Microsoft Office.
