Don’t look! It’s controversial! January 27, 2011Posted by jeneypeney in Uncategorized.
While I was at work, working hard on work
perusing my facebook news feed I found this article about Elton John’s recent adoption and subsequent US! Magazine cover.
For those of you who decided not to click the link, a grocery store in Arkansas decided that the cover, which depicted a very happy Elton John and partner David Furnish holding their adorable new baby boy, was inappropriate for eyes of our nation’s children.
I mean, how could they not? If the pandemonium we all faced after these covers bombarded our news stands…
…is any indication at all – then magazine companies should think twice about using controversial and inappropriate photographs for their covers!
Wait, what was that? It wasn’t the fact that the cover showed an ecstatic couple showing off their brand new addition to the family? Well what was it then?
Was it because the cover screamed something like,
CLEAVAGE! LEGS! UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS OF FEMALE BODY IMAGE! BOW TO THE OPPRESSION!
UNDERWEAR! SEX OBJECT! YOU ARE ONLY AS ATTRACTIVE AS YOUR LINGERIE AND SOCIETY SAYS YOU ARE!
MYTHICAL BODY IMAGES CREATED BY GRAPHIC ARTISTS IN PHOTO SHOP! BULIMIA! ANOREXIA! TANNING! SEX SEX SEX!!
No? That’s not it either? Well, SHIT! What the hell is wro…
Ohhhhhhhh! I see… they’re all afraid their kids will catch the gay from seeing the magazine cover.
Well, I guess the self-esteem destroying, sex-fueled, fake model magazine covers aren’t so bad after all.
**For those of you who will not understand…This post? Sarcasm. The ridiculousness of Arkansas surpasses my ability to keep quiet.
