i don't mind edgy pictures

 really i don't. but these are beyond distasteful. when i mention women are MORE than body parts or MORE than hangers for clothing i get called all sorts of things. i guess i'm not articulate enough. it's NOT cool to set women up as some slashers or necrophiliacs fantasy. it's just NOT. then we have THESE tasteless pictures................

Dead-Looking Women, High Fashion, Blah Blah Blah (Trigger Warning)

Ok, I get it. I really get it that “fashion” has to be “edgy” and so they sometimes “cross the line” in order to be “cutting edge.”  See all those quotation marks?  I get it.  I so obviously get it!
So when Vogue Italia decided to do a BP oil spill-themed fashion shoot, I was like “Yeah, of course! Like, that’s so, like, fashion!”  I mean, what better way to draw attention to tragedy and disaster?  I see nothing at all ironic about highlighting the destruction of working-class people’s livelihoods with obscenely expensive clothes designed primarily to enhance the status of elite fashion designers and the rich people who can wear them.....................

Good God! What the hell is supposed to even be the point of those pictures? Very offensive, and I'm not easily offended.

i have no idea what the point is. as a rule
1) disasters aren't funny
2) fantasies about dead women aren't funny
