Y'know, Chai, I really think that the picture you posted of the Guess jeans ad is a lot more salacious than cj's cheesecake. Not that it makes any difference. But the pot really shouldn't accuse the kettle of being soot-covered.
how do you find it more salacious?
mame, would you like to call Merry Andrew judgemental since he's taking it on himself to call me soot covered pot?
You know....that word judgemental seems to have been bandied around a lot lately, mostly by 14 year olds.
Are we all not adults here, totally capable of judging as we see fit.
Personally, I find someone (not you per se Mame) who chronicallly calls others judgemental is just trying to get the attention away from themselves.
I don't include you in that Mame, as you were speaking on behalf of someone else.
We all judge everyone we meet. When we don't know them, our judgement may be way off.....however, if you know someone, it's not so much judging as making a decision based on our prior knowledge of a person.
If I said "Wonderful Post Merry Andrew! I don't think I have ever read a more moving, intelligent thing in my entire life!" Am I not being judgemental?
Now, this is just me, with no malice to anyone, anywhere, but when I hear someone calling another "judgemental" it truly tightens my gut and makes me think the whole conversation has gotten entirely immature. However, I'm sure that's not how others hear the word....I'm just sharing my personal feeling.
Just as one someone, not necessarily cj, just anyone, feels the need to describe a woman in reference to their age, with the connotation the 40 is getting a little long in the tooth...I don't think it would as naturally come up that someone is an 23 year old stripper....It's assumed a stripper is of a certain age, young and attractive to be doing what she's doing....but Ye Gads! FORTY!!!??? My, that just doesn't sound like the person saying it is thinking of her as being as attractive as the younger one.....like she's worn out her usefullness in that arena.
Actually I find my picture lovely, she's not staring like at cat in heat at the camera, she's wearing pants that go all the way to her waist, bosom evident but not thrust out into space. You might call it suductive, but certainly not salacious.
The other picture merely invites someone to tuck a $20 into her crotch....in my judgement.
