Why Did Google Delete Dennis Cooper’s Blog?

Really shit-ass situation. Dennis Cooper is a long time favorite writer of mine, and i feel very fortunate to have corresponded with him on and off for 10 years, Every time a piece I've submitted gets rejected by so-called "transgressive" publishers, I calm myself down by remembering that Dennis Cooper published my first (and last I guess) in the Userlands anthology back in '06, and that means more to me than being part of the Saturday Morning Surrealist Circle Jerk that passes for transgressive literature today. Sorry for the rambling cattiness. Censorship is bullshit, especially on the Internet. this says it better:

We Are The Sprocket Holes vol. 230

This is why by not showing sex, you’re actually much more sexy, because in not showing sex, you’re forcing the audience to have a very subliminal reaction to it, and everything becomes very specific [to them]. So, okay: the sexuality in Demon is, in a way, a very fetishised sexuality. There’s the necrophilia — so, what does that mean? That’s a fear of rejection. It’s a very melancholy sexuality, it’s a very sad sexuality. And you have the rapist, which is a very violent and vile form of sexuality; very vicious, mean-spirited. So those are very opposite ends. And then you have what is basically self-sex, which is the narcissist’s acceptance of themselves as their own partner. [Extremes] make sexuality difficult to pinpoint, in the sense that it makes everything more imaginative. It’s like a fairytale. And fairytales never sexualise things, they just have a sexual undertone.
