I will say, I am somewhat ashamed of the reaction to the Bill Henson exhibition. I can understand why those photos made some people uncomfortable, I really can. However, it is important to consider the context. These are not sexualised photos. It is entirely possible have a sexualised photo of a fully clothed child. I'll be honest, I find the photos of children all tarted up to look like grown ups far more offensive. They are not pornographic images. They were photos taken with the full consent and supervision of the parents of adolescents who have suffered no notable consequences as a result. Well, until now when they are being splashed across the media and having their images referred to as 'filth'. Children should be protected, but this isn't something they need protecting from.
And to the opinion writer at the Sydney Morning Herald who wrote that paedophiles have had an easy run in society, then proceeded to say that a large portion of the gay community are also paedophiles. That, I just find horrible offensive.
There is always going to be someone who finds any given image erotic. People are incredibly twisted like that.
To lighten the mood after such a serious post, I offer picspam!
He is an unfairly attractive man.
