The Pornography of War (Literally)

Cross-posted from Feminist Peace Network:

A hearty congragulations to Vogue Italia for what is the most obscene, inappropriate fashion spread I have every seen. Shot after suggestive shot shows pornographic images of models being ravaged/lusted after by ’soldiers’, some of the shots are quite violent in nature. This comment on Detainees says it all:

“Steven Meisel’s new spread in Vogue Italia, “Make Love Not War,” is pornographic, not because it features nudity, but because it glamorizes an already obscene, criminal and tragic situation. US soldiers in Iraq are already “making love,” but not to supermodels. They are using Iraqis as prostitutes when not raping, sodomizing and sexually torturing them. We’re not cool lovers but angry sadists.”

    I in addition to my guys have been digesting the excellent recommendations on your web site and so before long came up with a terrible feeling I had not expressed respect to the web blog owner for those techniques. These boys became so passionate to see them and have now unquestionably been taking advantage of these things. Many thanks for being considerably accommodating and for figuring out these kinds of brilliant useful guides millions of individuals are really eager to know about. My honest regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier.
