In more Dov Charney news

Details of the sexual harassment lawsuits filed against the American Apparel owner reveal ungrateful women who lack appreciation for penises, real and fake. Take for example, Rebecca Brinegar, who objects to Charney exposing himself "in the nude in front of her." Or Heather Pithie who objects to his generous offer of a vibrator.

Can you really blame the guy for getting a little steamed at all this sexual persecution? Or as his lawyer puts it, this shameful attempt to "use Mr. Charney's openness about his sexuality as a weapon against him."

The truly priceless bit in the NYT article, however, is the opening line: "There is no question that Dov Charney is an unconventional chief executive."
