‘Hugh Hefner exploited women personally and professionally’

Hugh Hefner died today.

Expect a lot of stories about how he was a maverick in publishing, an icon and lists of his achievements.

But most will ignore the negative side of his empire and his life.

Why do we do that when someone dies? If you asked me yesterday what I thought of him I would have simply said I thought he was a sexist misogynist who profited by exploiting women professionally and personally. Today I just make that statement past tense. Why should I have a different opinion today?
