Oh. Wait I know why



Grr. So much wrong with this image and it's context. I don't have real issues with sharps or piercing play, even though its way WAY outside of my personal comfort zone, but that's not what this image is intended to evoke in the mainstream audience. Instead, it is two fully dressed, obviously well to do white guys holding the leash of a posed, faceless, mostly naked woman laced up as if she herself is a corset or a shoe. Beyond the obviously judging and objectifying gazes of the two men and the rather standard posing-woman-without-face crap, she has been reduced to literally a broken object to be tightened and distorted outside of her natural shape to meet the approval of men.


I don't care if there is some attempt at a redeeming message in the show. I don't care if it is criticizing the culture it is portraying. This image is wrong and hurtful, especially as it is presented not as a critique, but as a draw from the front page of youtube.
