I'm a Male. Or a Voyeur.

During 6+ years of blogging, I have received a remarkably small number of comments that I'd consider 'negative'. Sure, there's been some that have disagreed with something I posted, but even those have been few and far between. However, I got one this morning that just made me chuckle. And I didn't want you guys to miss out on it. This appeared in last week's HNT comment box...(my comments in red)
"Some pictures are inappropriate; some aren't. This is disgusting. (a woman's rear end is disgusting?) Hell, no wonder women are often considered sluts. Those who publish such are worse. (ok...I'm worse than a slut...) Sure, her ass is lovely (wait a minute...it's disgusting, but it's lovely? how does that work?) but what is your purpose? (the purpose is to showcase a fellow HNTer, hopefully drive traffic to their site if desired, and counteract my own HNT each week) How did I mistake your blog and put you in my Favorites list? (I have no idea. curious myself, as to what brought you here in the first place...) You must be male or voyeuristic. (guilty as charged, on both counts. obviously I'm male, or did you not look at the nose? and can't I be both?)
Of course, the commenter was signed as "Anonymous", as dissenters who prefer to hide from rebuttal usually sign themselves. If I really cared, I'd check my stats to figure out where they were from, but frankly, it's not worth my time. I do have to give props for proper grammar, spelling and punctuation. A rarity among anonymous commenters! And I wonder what pictures this person didn't consider "inappropriate".

I'm really curious, though, if they hit up OHNT!

I actually saw this comment come through, as I subscribed to last week's HNT comments. It made me chuckle when I first read it.

How can you follow HNT if you get offended by nekkid pics?! :)

Ms Scarlett said...

I'd rather be inappropriate than as rude as Anonymous is!

Oh wait... I already am... lol... good thing Anon hasn't checked the rest of us out huh?

xo

That comment (and anonymous commenter) is simply more proof the Total Fuckwad Theory of the Internet:

Normal Person + Anonymity + Audience = Total Fuckwad

It is even worse when the normal person in question is an asshole to begin with

MinorityReport said...

Wow. I missed that last week. So...is the human body disgusting? or the celebration of it? Or is it the embracing of sexuality? or the very recognition of sexuality? And what's up with singling out women here? What about the male HNTrs? Are they less "inappropriate" because of their bodies? So many more questions...

Anon,
If you're reading...at the top of the browser window there's an "x". Just click it if you stumble across something that upsets you. There's no requirement to look at or approve of everything you find on the net (or TV, or the radio, or in the paper...etc.) Just because "you" don't approve, doesn't mean everyone else has to follow your vision.

I raise my hand proudly declaring my manhood and voyeuristic tendencies. So...as an exhibitionist too....does that make me BI?

I wish Anon would grow a pair and allow for a constructive dialogue. I respect the views of others and would enjoy a chat. Not to convince or berate but to better understand my fellow human being. Oh yea...and I'd probably be trying to get a peek at said person's ass.

I also saw this comment come in and have to admit to a head-scratching moment at the last line. Isn't it possible to both male and voyeur? What about the female voyeurs among us? The object of "to-be-looked-at-ness" is both the female and male form in this arena and media at large.

Perhaps you could refer closed-minded Anon to me and I could bombard him or her with a litany of psychoanalytic theory and its relation to the erotic and eroticised image. I'm sure I could bore the pants off them in a few short minutes and then have the camera out to snap a quickie of their arse for an HNT guest post!

Can you tell I'm in the mood for a tussle? ;)

hahaha... Thats just funny. seems that someone didn't get enough hugs as a child.

The Smoking Redhead said...

I liked MinorityReport's comments and have one of my own to the "Anonymous" commentor...

Fuck off if you can't take a joke! Don't like it? There's the virtual door. Don't let it hit ya where the good Lord split ya!

The Smoking Redhead said...

LOL, and now for the nice Smoking Redhead...


Thank you, thank you, thank you!! If you have a reason to be thanked by me via this blog then you know why.

I can't possibly thank you enough!!!

I understand that, sometimes, it may be necessary to comment anonymously; but, oftentimes anonymous comments are left by people who use their anonymity to insult and say hurtful things that they would not say if it were attributable.
