After video of conservative, loathsome, professional provocateur Milo Yiannopolous’ appearance on the Drunken Peasants podcast last year resurfaced showing him allegedly defending sex between adult men and boys of the age of 13 or 14, book publisher Simon & Schuster has cancelled the publication of his book, Dangerous.

It’s sad that Simon & Schuster even needed “careful consideration” to cancel Yiannopolous’ book publication.
It wasn’t hateful racist, transphobic, white supremacist, misogynist nattering. In the end, it was defending man/boy sex.
Nice to know there’s a “bridge too far” somewhere.
