Feminists are outraged that Terry Richardson has yet to be Arizona slow executed for the crime of being a super fucking creepy photographer who prays on young women. You know, unlike his fashion model shooting peers who just want to help young Czech teens with perfect bone structure and teen tits find fulfillment. Since nobody is bringing legal charges against Uncle Terry and his slap happy cock, feminists have turned to criticizing his work. Not for his obviously amateurish technical skills, but for its dagger in the heart of female self-worth and sexual objectification
‘[These images] depict women in sexually vulnerable, pornographic positions where a lot of the model’s facial expressions look like they’ve been drugged or they’re drunk. These images are predatory.’
Two fun loving unbiased female essayists thought it would be eye opening to take blatantly sexually objectifying commercial ads shot by Terry Richardson and morph in men’s faces and body parts instead of women’s. The resulting photographs would be so disturbing, they’d force you to see how a billion times infinity more disturbing the originals were. I can’t possibly fathom this connection. I just know the outcome is idiotic whether you’re a man, a woman, or a woman who secretly wishes she had a dick and therefore despises all who possess one.
Outside of some half-assed Photoshopping skills, what has your Women’s Studies summer project taught us? That men like porn? All of these advertisements shot by Uncle Terry are for women’s magazines or catalogs for women. Most of the editors of these magazines are women. The products themselves designed by women or gay men. In fact, all of Terry Richardson’s vocal supporters are women. I don’t doubt that a chick ball-gagged and bent over a couch in her panties is sexist. But for whom? The straight dudes in prison who can only get their hands on Vogue or Cosmo for spank material? Uncle Terry is your creation, ladies. If he ever does get busted, you’re the ones who need to go post his bail and take him home to sleep on your couch. He’s your secret shame.
(Maybe the shots he just took of porn girl Jessie Andrew below are for the guys. Or just his own closet of shameful deeds. I’m still not bailing him out when the time comes.)
