"I was not trying to be shocking, or to be a pioneer. I wasn’t trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time. I didn’t think of myself as liberated, and I don’t believe that I did anything important. I was just myself. I didn’t know any other way to be, or any other way to live."


and as anyone who knows anything about Betty will tell you, she was completely ignorant of her roll in popular culture and upon people in general. And as Betty said herself she had no clue why guys ordered the poses and the costumes that they did (she found them silly, and thought nothing more about it). In fact, for over thirty years Betty had no idea that she was remembered (some of that time she was in an in patient treatment mental health program) , even as a cottage industry in reprints of hers was making huge profits, even as she had been adopted by the sex positive feminists as a sort of mascot. In later years she did know, and was able to get some of the money that she should have been getting all along. And she did sometimes go hang out with Hef, she by all accounts lived it up at one of Hef's parties along side Anna Nichole, reveling in the adulation.

@hawkeye10,
Your presence in any thread that mentions the word sex is well known. As are your, usually, unpopular views. The lady is dead. Leave it alone for cripe sake.

Perhaps you would be so kind as to point out where you have spoken of contributions.

@Rockhead,
I have, and others have, commented on Betty's contribution. I think that it is not correct to slam a person who a just died, but Int seems completely unaware that no one has a bad word to say about Page. Now that I have corrected him my work is done.
