Response to ProudToBeBlueInRhody (Reply #135)

Wed Aug 27, 2014, 04:27 PM

142. I get that I don't understand the "background radiation" of a girl or woman's life,

but when someone shows something like this that's supposed to be a good example of "turning the tables", and I still don't see it, in my eyes, it hurts, rather than helps the argument.

The Wonder Woman example wasn't very good because the 2 poses really, in no way, resembled each other in art quality or much else. The other example, where the pictures were much closer in style and quality, looked just fine both ways to me.

It's not my intention to dismiss the concerns that some people have with the artwork, but given the examples above, I still don't see it. I don't know, maybe better examples might help make a clearer argument.

When looking at the pictures I've seen, I've wondered why the covers of Vogue and Cosmo picture women, often in "sexualized" positions, since they're magazines that target women and why would any woman buy a magazine with a picture on the cover that makes them uncomfortable.
