Oh. My. Gawd. Inappropriate!

OK. I am not a prude by any means, but Miley Cyrus if 15 years old... posing in nothing but a blanket. Seriously a sexual shot of a minor, IMO, and completely inappropriate. Ack! Maybe I am glad to have a boy after all...

I absolutely agree.

It makes me sad.

you know what? I don't think it's all that bad. I think a mountain is being made of a molehill, sort of. and I'd hazard to guess I'm probably more prude than you! (that wasn't meant in a bad way, ps!)

I mean, to give an example--think about breastfeeding. Dude, it's feeding your child in the most natural way possible and we treat it like it's dirty or uncomfy or whatever. (and by we I mean your average US-er)

anyway, it's the same with the human form. really? in my mind this is a picture of a girl in a blanket. it isn't dirty or scandalous. and look at her eyes--not provocative. it's supposed to capture how "naturally beautiful" she is or whatever, not make you think about what's under that sheet.

now, I TOTALLY see that it could've become sexual really easily--lower that blanket, make it gauzy, have her have a sexy pout, etc. but it wasn't.

so if I think about it like that, from the p.o.v. of the photographer, then I'm not so inclined to think there's anything wrong with it...but that's just my opinion.

@care-- I see your point, and as a whole I don't have a problem with nudity, but for some reason, I see her pose differently. I do think it looks provocative. The wild hair, rosy red lips...something about it screams child porn to me. Maybe the way she is slouched over? I'm not sure what...

On the other hand, put her at a park like that, and I'd be like-- whatever. Or in a bikini. No problem.

it probably makes a HUGE difference that you are a mother and I am not, too. I imagine it changes your perspective quite dramatically, y'know?

that is unfortunate.

i have to agree with maria - the coloring of the pic makes me think poor, forlorn BUT BEAUTIFUL orphan child... must "rescue/save" her and that just leads down the wrong way in my mind.... SHE IS FIFTEEN. too young, in my opinion, to pose like that. her target audience are even younger - i just find the air of innocence missing.

Maria said...

@care-- Definitely. Having a child REALLY changes the way you think.

I think the whole thing is nuts. the personn I pity is Annie (photag). She seemed to have gotten permission from all angles...and is now being made to look like she caused this! I mean.. right or wrong, scandalous or not, they gave permission til they saw what it looked like. *le sigh* If Venssa Huchins (sp?) can recover from panty/bra pics, Hannah Montana can recover from this. At least it wasnt like Rolling Stone or FHM or something...*insert cringe*
