Tomorrow the Trailer Arrives! #FiftyShades

awesome, fifty shades of rape and abuse!
it’s literally disturbing to me that this is so popular it is a book about an abusive man who excuses his actions by labelling himself a “dom”

It disturbs me how many people don’t seem to understand the difference between BDSM and abuse. There IS a difference, and this IS abuse. Do not even talk to Dommes about 50 Shades of Grey if you don’t want to listen to rants.

You know why this book is popular? One word. FANTASIES. Women have many powerful internalized fantasies which they know they wouldn’t want irl, but in the safety of their imagination…? Well, guilty pleasures are monikered as such for a reason. And many, many women can get off to the thought of a powerful, physically attractive man abusing them, even though he’d be out the door in two seconds if they met someone like that in person.Capitalizing on that, it’s not just a book about an abusive man excusing himself with the equally-abused title of “dom”. It’s about a bad guy who over the course of the series (because this is only the first book in a trilogy and not a complete story) finds redemption and character growth through love and vulnerability (or so I’ve heard) which is probably the singularly greatest female romance fantasy of all time. Combine those two and it’s no surprise that this (unfortunately) turned out to be literary gold.tl;drIt doesn’t sell because it’s healthy or accurate, but because it’s Porn With Plot. And many an empowered feminist will tell you there’s nothing wrong with that,

There are some How To Train Your Dragon 2 SPOILERS in this video, but ye gods. The 3D rendering technology they used to make the movie is just… YE GODS. It might not look that impressive to someone who’s never tried to work with 3D rendered character models, but trust me on this. This is just incredible.

no, but seriously. As a 3D student myself, I was blown away by what I saw in that movie.

"Our main objective was to re-think traditional packaging methodology. Used as a tool to showcase our ability to think & work beyond convention, we determined from the out-set that drawing inspiration from uncommon sources was essential to the success of the project. Cue the Terpentine: An attractive shape, an airtight seal, something unexpected. This container delivered on all counts, but how to break from the unfriendly, industrial, and for all intensive purposes toxic associations we as consumers have made with that form?

A bright yet soft color palette combined with elegant and approachable serif type helps soften the brand against the harshness of material. A quick sand, prime, and dip in paint helps add some individuality among the products and re-enforces the handmade nature of the product, No two wishbones being exactly the same.”

AKA is not one of those big fancy agencies – they are a small focused design studio that works efficiently to make the most of budgets and timelines through their streamlined positioning and design process. They are a team that believes that “all work and no play makes for a dull day”. While they take their work seriously, they believe you need to enjoy the ride – as the journey is often just as important as the end result.

In an article for Take Part, writers Holly Eagleson and Lauren Wade retouched controversial advertisements by replacing women models with men. In doing so, Eagleson and Wade hoped to highlight the pervasiveness of sexual objectification of women. For example, they decided to remake American Apparel advertisements to draw attention to former CEO Dov Charney’s abuse and mistreatment of female employees, as well as to photographer Terry Richardson’s record of harassing and assaulting women.
“Charney and Richardson are really representative of a specific form of sexism and objectification in media today,” Wade told Huffington Post in an email. “Their collaborations, in particular for American Apparel, depict women in sexually vulnerable, pornographic positions where a lot of the model’s facial expressions look like they’ve been drugged or they’re drunk. These images are predatory. They depict women being taken advantage of and it’s supposed to look “sexy” and sell sweatshirts?”



*these images are predatory and objectify women*
Lol ok






But Wait!  I hear you cry!  
Those are all adverts for mens underwear!  That doesn’t count! Ok, let’s have a look for some of American Apparel’s non-underwear adverts! 


hmmm…. the shorts were the last thing I noticed here

American Apparel Socks used in a photoshoot

You are equating scantily clad female models as “objectification of women” yet failing to notice that most fashion industries treat male models the exact same way.
It is intellectually dishonest to equate the use of scantily clad models to rape and sexual assault.   How can you argue against “she was wearing a short skirt so she must have wanted it” yet create a link between rape and scantily clad female models in the fashion industry?  There’s also images of their lead photogropher cavorting with male models with his boxers around his ankles… notice there is nothing about that in your puff piece.
What does that say about all the female designers and gay male fashion designers who use scantily clad models of both sexes, including the sexes they are attracted to in their shoots? 
At the end of the day, you act like you are being somehow revolutionary in swapping female models in AA shoots with males, when most of their work selling menswear looks like softcore gay porn. 

Not to mention no modern day advertising group would put an ass that hairy on the page.  The guy’s hair, lighting and complexion are so bad that they’re INTENTIONALLY putting an ‘ugly’ guy on the page, with a hairy ass, to make people unhappy with the right image.
Put David Beckham on the right and I bet you’d have women drooling over it.
