No! You're not allowed to be better than me at yet another kind of photography! You should wait until I buy the 105mm VR Micro Nikkor lens. :)

well, if it makes you feel any better, i won't have taken any portraiture classes until this fall.

i've got a backlog of things i need to post from my spring studio time. i just haven't had time to edit. but food photography is one of those thigns i enjoy under the "product photo" category.

and stop comparing yourself to me! you're a good photographer in your own right! besides, i still need to poke at you to come hang out when i get studio time again this fall.

Ugh. Those *&#%$&#ing sweatpants... I won't check the link, but I assume they are the stupid Kmart ones?

*pukes in mouth*

I WANT PEOPLE TO STOP EQUATING WORTH OF WOMEN WITH VIRGINITY!!! CONSENTUAL SEX IS NICE, OKAY, WORLD?!?!?!
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 10th, 2008 07:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
To me it seems ridiculous, as it's drawing attention toward the butt and thighs. The butt's most definitely something sexualized, and thighs aren't far off.

Maybe next they'll come up with abstinence bikinis.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 10th, 2008 08:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm not certain how you get to worth of women and virginity from those pants. I just think they are entirely ridiculous.
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: June 10th, 2008 09:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
I mean... the pants in a vacuum don't equate worth of women with their virginity... but that's pretty much what the whole abstinence-only movement does.

Like, eeew! What kind of gift will you be to your husband if you're already *used*?!
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 10th, 2008 09:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
And what kind of gift would he be if he's already "used"?
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: June 10th, 2008 10:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Indeed! That is just one of the many holes in the entire abstinence-only bullshit.
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 10th, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, because guys don't actually need to change. We can stay weak and prone to temptation. It's women who need to stop being such temptresses.
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: June 10th, 2008 11:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
*sigh of relief now that I can safely assume you were being snarky*

Nothing like being in charge of not only my own behavior, but that of an entire other gender!
Maybe I wouldn't have problems if I weren't such a dirty slut? (Honestly, you should see the way I dress... just -begging- for it!)
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 10th, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
More just sarcastic, as "snarky" includes anger.

We'll have to add that to "The Woman's Burden", along with childbirth, child rearing, cooking, cleaning and baking.

Yes. If you just went around in those sweat pants all these problems would be gone.
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: June 10th, 2008 11:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah... check. Then **I** was being snarky.

*reads the list* You are missing a few things... but I'll let them slide since you were just being sarcastic, anyway. Anger could help inspire a truly depressing list.

Damn, those sweatpants piss me off. (Even more? Kmart's "These aren't about abstinence! It's just a catchy saying!" letter. Even though their website boasts an 'abstinence' font.)

*pukes in mouth a bit*
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 10th, 2008 11:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Admittedly I don't pay that much attention to what people are "supposed" to do, as if I did I'd probably be thoroughly unhappy, either of the angry or the depressed variety.

Catchy saying, and you're in denial, K-Mart. Besides, you'll ruin the sex industry that way! Think of all those workers in the latex factories who'll get laid off because of abstinence!
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: June 10th, 2008 11:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Admittedly I don't pay that much attention to what people are "supposed" to do [...] ./i>

Good! Me, neither. And I am near-always happy.



(Thinks about how abstinence education has led to an increase of STD transmittals and less condom use since kids have sex -anyway-, just like everyone else, but they don't protect themselves... *sigh*) !!!
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 10th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, because not talking about sex has successfully prevented it for the entire rest of history. Which is why none of us exist right now.
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: June 11th, 2008 12:02 am (UTC) (Link)
HOLY GUTTMACHER INSTITUTE STUDY ABOUT HOW ALL (90+%) OF OUR GRANDPARENTS HAD SEX BEFORE THEY WERE MARRIED!!!

*sex education makes me talk in caps.
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 11th, 2008 12:06 am (UTC) (Link)
I'll keep that in mind.

If those sweatpants had existed 14 years ago my parents would have bought them for me. The first cd I ever owned was called "True Love Waits" and it was all about how awesome it is to be a virgin. I got it after I signed a contract pledging to be a virgin until marriage (at age 11 the whole concept was still very icky to me so I had no problem signing it). I had a ring and everything! Then I had sex before marriage anyway! Yay!
abmann From: abmann Date: June 10th, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think the pants a really a bad butt sex joke. True love waits on your bum? sure, sure.

I imagine many hormonal teenaged males might consider it a challenge.
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: June 10th, 2008 09:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
(Just like most people who sign virginity pledges... and certainly most people in general...)
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: June 11th, 2008 12:41 am (UTC) (Link)
Exactly!
lipsoflove From: lipsoflove Date: June 10th, 2008 07:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Love those pants. 'True love waits' on the buttocks.
How hilarious.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 10th, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah. i went there too. :)
