Dear readers, I was meandering along looking at blogs when a huuuuuuuuuuuuge vagina practically stepped off the page and slapped me in the face!
I mean it was just….huuuuuge (I have a 27″ screen so I mean huuuuge!) and it was most helpfully held open like a friggin’ garage door with the ‘models’ fingers. For goodness sake, I had just finished reading about some bloggers love for Jesus when this popped up. WHAMMO!
I was pissed. It takes a lot to to annoy me and this did. I couldn’t quite work out why.
Then I tried to articulate it.
I’ve nothing against porn. There’s a market for it and on the surface, if we ignore trafficking and various unacceptable offshoots for sake of argument, it is what it is. But this was so in my face with no warning. The human body is the human body and I’ve never really understood prudery about it. But these pictures were not there artistically or to celebrate the human body. If so, where were the men objectifying themselves, squishing themselves obediently like performing dogs into every imaginable angle to get the shot right up the grand canyons? The picture I used up top is the tamest from this WordPress site – believe me.
I so wanted to use one of the images to generate the same reaction that I felt being confronted with the ones I saw and this was the most usable.
Anyhoo, for me my sheer prickly annoyance can be summed up thus:
The continuous exploitation of women by an industry ran mostly by men…yadda yadda…
The fact that a woman with all the advantages of living in the West, either felt she had no choice or decided that this was the best she could do at some point in her life.
The fact that I’m rather enjoying Wordpess and these people are like the neighbours who move in and ruin it all for everyone.
The fact that whilst there may be a place for sex and porn, ‘normal’ WordPress should not be it. It’s like making a lovely meal and having some d*ckhead sh*t all over your table. Two separate human functions with their own places to perform them.
The fact that a young child could click on these images as easily as I did – like children need dragging into adulthood any faster than they already are these days.
I could be wrong.
Is it just me or does this creep onto ‘normal’ WordPress piss you off too?…And why?
