Apparently, I've missed something from Hollyweird--which means I've actually missed nothing at all, as it's always the same shit but with a different shade of pink around the lens. Apparently, one of the girls from Glee did a photo shoot in which she sports a black eye. I linked over to his blog and looked at the rest of the pictures, as well as the video. The video's a bit of a snore. Lots of folks in the comments are all pissed off about the glamorization of violence against women, but many of the m are pissed off about the glamorization of violence in general. What they seem to lack empathy for--the fact that Hollyweird and teh pr0n industry has been doing this shit for ages, and this is what people see as true D/s and/or BDSM.
Here's my take on it. Folks, it's just an image on celluloid. Or whatever the fuck film is made out of. It's another dull-as-dishwater blonde who is younger than most of my socks and fave t-shirts. The photos look to be done by someone just as young and clueless. I don't see any cops coming round to haul Tyler Sheilds's "arty" self off to jail. But then, cops can't get involved in domestic affairs, I don't reckon.
Y'all realize this shit is staged, yes? Do I think it glorifies abuse? Yes, it probably does. Wrong? You better believe it. Pathetic? Yup. This is freedom of speech at it's best? Wow. No wonder I don't dig art. But then, hell, according to the "arts community" (and artists at-large) I'm too fucking thick to get this stuff anyway.
This ain't D/s. Or BDSM. Or anything close to it. It's just pictures of abuse, and this moron's too thick to get it. So much for my good day.
