I will say this! My Wifee Sends magizens to my son In afghan, Im sure they dont mind the Pic In the D&DH Issues
You people are missing the point, so I shall explain it one last time. Now pay attention......
It is NOT, and I repeat NOT the photo of the woman in and of itself that makes the ad offensive. She is not dressed indecently, not even by the standards of a magazine like D&DH which is for a varied readership.
And I certainly do not mind looking at a photo of an attractive woman. I may be older, but I sure as hell ain't dead.
Now here comes the important part, so make sure you slow down and read this real well so you understand the context.......
It was the WORDS in the ad that refered to the woman, and how it was degrading for ALL women....not just the one in the ad, who was probably well paid for it and most likely doesn't care at all....because the implication was that her breasts don't measure up to some moron's size scale. It was no different than putting a child with Down's syndrome in the ad and then making some derogatory comment in that neither people with Down's syndrome or women had any say about WHAT THEY WERE BORN WITH!
You want to mock a women who's had collegen lip disfigurement done to herself so that she now has "fish lips" and looks like a beached carp? FINE! I'm all for that! That was her CHOICE.
I'm not a prude, not by a long shot. I just think that people in general should be treated with a certain amount of respect, and degrading or mocking an entire class of humanity because of something they had no control over is NOT showing that respect.
Is my point clear now?
