emotional, eccentric & exciting ...
Some feedback about the blog:
Just a note about the “Fine Nude Art Photographed by Tommy Edwards (link at the bottom of your website) - I am perfectly okay with nudity if it can somehow be theorised as a form of art or social critique, but in the photos of Edward's site, I notice that the photos predominantly depict women, which I personally find offensive, as it just propagates the idea that the feminine body is an object to be stared at and objectified. Just thought I'd pass that on to you - if this photographer photographed equal numbers of male nudes as well, this perhaps would not have been as big an issue, even though it still might have been problematic as such depictions of women have a long history of demeaning associations which depictions of men do not. Also, I would have like to see more of a critical commentary on why he consideres these photographs art and not pornography (As I don't buy the line that all porn is art).
Also, I thought the reference to "chicks in hijabs" and "the husband's supposed to be giving out half of what he ears to the chick!..". ( Dec 27, 2004) terrible offensive. Please do not call any woman a chick - its morally degrading and if the course you did on womens studies did not get these issues through to you by introducing you to the ways in which language can be used to exercise power over people, it certainly didn't do a good job.
Also, in response to this:
"I'm being honest here when i say "I AGREE WITH Bahrania". Actually, i'm totally attracted to those who wear hijabs - no, it doesn't mean i'm not to others who do not, however, the hijab or whoever's wearing the head scarf - kinda' gves off a mysterious feeling - something i enjoy very much."
