I was going to do comics talk today, but a newspaper article appeared today that made me think that now is as good a time as any to bring up what might become a regular recurring topic on this blog, and that's the discussion of boobs in our society. In short, from time to time I will link stories about our societal fascination with women's boobs.
Please note that while you are free to send articles on boobs to me, do not send porn! That is NOT what I am trying to discuss with this topic! If you send such links of porn to me, not only will I delete your comment, I will also ban you if you do it again! That's how serious I am! I hope we have an understanding about this, because I don't want to ban anyone.
As an example of the kinds of articles on boobs I am talking about, one is posted below:
Read this article: Move over, Hooters: New Restaurants moving in on the market
Now here is a comment on that article. See what you think of what this person says:
These companies and men are so smart. Wow!!! Who would have thought that you could appeal to men with sex? They are so creative! Let’s see, they figured out if you appeal to people's weaknesses and desires you'll make money...and lots of it. All by themselves? We are a self-indulgent, fiscally irresponsible society that puts profit above principle, self before neighbor. People naturally want more than they deserve and things they don't need. Can we say, "Financial Crisis, Obesity, and Drug/Alcohol Abuse?" Lesson -- If you zero in on the weaknesses, vices, and desires of others you can make $MONEY$. Duh!! When people prey on others for their own personal gain we call them pimps, dealers, predators and thieves. Just because what they do is legal, doesn't make it right! When did right become so wrong? Ethics, Moral Character and Values -- they just don't sell! Ever hear of Hobby Lobby, Interstate Batteries or Chick-fil-a? Profit isn't bad; it's what you're giving up to get it
So - what do you think? Agree? Disagree?
Before I continue, I'll see what you all have to say.
