My Response To The yanks. And Also Porn.

Click here for the background info on my letter to the New Haven Advocate.

My letter, a reply to a letter by a very dumb yankee fan, has been published this week. Click here to see it in the paper. It's the last one on the page. And they didn't cut anything out!

The first letter on there is quite interesting, and I have to say I pretty much agree with it. The person is shooting down the paper for glorifying porn, which most corporations are guilty of nowadays. Maybe not so much porn, but definitely the use of sex to sell products. Besides being completely uncreative, there's just something messed up about it. Like, I wish these companies would let kids have some time to be kids, instead of plastering boobs and cheesy innuendo everywhere. And you can tell me that porn and ads that use sex don't objectify women, because the women choose to take part in them, but I think that's missing the point. A little boy grows up seeing this stuff, and he's going to think that girls are there for his pleasure. And when every boy in the class gets this mindset, then every girl in the class willl have to accept their submissive role (while thinking they're cool for doing it) or risk being an outcast.

And I see all these porn stars getting fame and stuff, and it's like, come on, can you try to do something creative or something that just might help another human being, or would you rather just take your clothes off and let someone take your picture? Talk about taking the easy way out! Can you even try to do something else first? But you know what, society is such that a woman makes less money to do a job than a man makes, if they're lucky enough to get that job in the first place. So who am I to be mad if they choose to find an easy way out? Either way, ask someone to name all the female artists they know, and then all the female porn stars they know. And Avril Levine doesn't count, I said artist. The answers you get will make you feel like Evo Shandor. (society's too sick to survive--it's from Ghostbusters)

And I'm not a Jesus freak, either. I'm not religious at all. I've got too much common sense for that.

The person who wrote that letter is from Guilford. I'll have to ask my friend Jen (currently in a heated debate with Sam in the comments section of this post if she knows that person. You know, so we can drink Coke and smoke candy cigarettes and watch Sesame Street together. Wild!
