I will admit that I didn't notice this until I saw a picture last night but this is just inane and shows just how fucked up the US really is. Once again this country shows that we have no other worries than the possible viewing of a pair of female breasts and this time they were drawn!
Did you know that not only was Amy Winehouse not allowed to go to the Grammys until it was too late which in itself was insane (I guess we have never heard of a rock star having a drug problem before much less let them appear on the Grammys or any other awards show) but that she was made to draw a bra on one of her tattoos because American audiences would be offended otherwise!!!! Yet as you can see it wasn't airbrushed for the cover of Spin magazine. WTF!!!!!!
I guess we were all left with post traumatic stress disorder after the 2 seconds we spent ogling at Janet Jackson's breast during the great Super Bowl mishap but no one brings up the fact that one could argue that Justin Timberlake's ripping off of her top showed disrespect and violence towards women was much more offensive than a nip slip. Or when Lil Kim showed up at the MTV awards with one tata hanging out and only covered her nipple. Since when do we need to protect ourselves from art!!!! This from a country that makes the most violent misogynistic films and video games that get PG ratings, yet we wonder why we have so many school shootings. Or better yet all of the pharmaceutical ads that run nonstop for every disease that you didn't know you might be suffering (yet we have a thing called the War on Drugs but that war has nothing to do with the over-prescribing of any medication by our so called health care system). Or our ads for our other favourite form of addiction - the fast food chains whose commercials are aimed at children thus aiding the obesity of this nation because most parents don't want to have to tell little Johnny that they can't have something and then have to deal with the subsequent tantrum that might follow so why not ply them with fatty 'food'. After all it's easy and cheap. I guess those are all fine and dandy just don't dare show a drawing of a female breast at 10pm on television because that might just incite a riot!!!!! I'm shocked that museums in America don't have an age requirement upon entering so that the youth of the nation aren't exposed to the lascivious world of art and the body beautiful. After all Socrates was put to death for contributing to the delinquency of minors by teaching them to think for themselves.
Please can someone tell me where can I hand in my citizenship!!!!!!
