So...the picture on the left is supposedly...what? Wholesome? Promoting family values and worship of God?
A smug, cafe communist who diddles a pen to doodle nebulous bullshit for a living.
No, it's just beautiful and thus positive.So...the picture on the left is supposedly...what? Wholesome? Promoting family values and worship of God?
I'm not a big fan of crowded beaches. I haven't been to the beach in years, but if I were to go, I'd only go to the empty/non-crowded sections. If there happened to be a few women in bikinis there (or whatever), I could just ignore them or even be friendly without allowing myself to feel lust.No, it's just beautiful and thus positive.
Objective qualities matter, regardless of your faith (or lack thereof).
And while I agree it's not necessary to have such images printed 10 feet tall on city walls, if you cannot appreciate the female body simply for what it is without feeling lust (or any other thought you don't want in your head) it's you who have a problem, as in an unhealthy relationship to your body and/or your sexuality.
I assume you never ever go to the beach ?
What I meant is simply that many things in life will generate strong emotions in you, yet you cannot let your nervous system control you, it has to be the other way around otherwise you're more beast than human.What I am describing is sexual morality as taught by Christianity and most other religions as well. So if you're saying this means I have "an unhealthy relationship to your body and/or your sexuality," then you must believe all pre-modern Christian societies had unhealthy views about body and sexuality.
The picture on the left reflected a remnant of an appreciation of Beauty however degraded that regard may be. A degradation from Truth, Goodness and Beauty Trinity like the Trinity of God.So...the picture on the left is supposedly...what? Wholesome? Promoting family values and worship of God?
I'm a lot more interested in how we got from 1809 to 2009 than how we got from 2009 to 2020.
My response is likewise to Rob Banks.Good things can become bad things in the wrong context. It's as simple as this.
The problem with the beach blonde Calvin Klein billboard is not the girl or the semi-nudity, it's not even that it's in a public place per se - it's that it's advertising (and to a lesser extent, photography).
What I think we can all agree to is that the other abomination belongs nowhere.

This one got me good.
U.S.—The Biden campaign is facing a real communication problem as Joe Biden's speeches are growing more and more nonsensical. In order to overcome this challenge, aides have hired an interpreter to translate everything he says into normal, human-style English.
"My fellow Americans, pickle hamster meatloaf. The thing. Potato!" Biden began.
"My fellow Americans, thank you for being here this evening," the interpreter translated.
Biden continued: "This pandemic has cost us more than 85,000 jobs as of today. Lives of millions of people. Millions of people. Millions of jobs." He then nodded at the translator to interpret that into something resembling plain English.
"Uh... the, uh, pandemic has cost us tens of millions of jobs, and 85,000 have tragically lost their lives," she interpreted frantically.
But she struggled to keep up as his speech got less and less coherent.
"Peanut butter M&Ms and my fellow U.S. Americans in the Iraq. Platypus!" was translated as "We must make sure Donald Trump does not continue to rob America of its future," while "Farley farley farley farley farley hufaaaaaaaar!" was translated as "I am the best choice to beat Donald Trump."
As Biden's speech concluded, he said farewell: "Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-PTANG. Zoom-Boing. Z' nourrwringmm!"
"God bless you, and God bless America."
