You know, sometimes I feel like posting really passive-aggressive comments on all of the "Artistic Nudes" and "Glamour Portraits" that are always in the Popular pages because you all are a bunch of PERVERTS....but then I remember that I tend to click on those lovely pictures with the pretty mens sans shirts and the nice abs >.>;; .....(Have you noticed that when you have "c" and "l" right next to each other while writing a journal entry, it looks an awful lot like a d? Totally changes the meaning of that sentence....)
I still think those passive-aggressive comments to myself though.
Comments like "OMG, look! Breasts! " and "I know that I myself, love walking around the house with my shirt rolled up over my bewbs because sometimes, my boobs get too hot but my shoulders tend chill easily."
Because that's generally what a lot of the pictures titled "Artistic Nudes" are about, aren't they? Tatas on display? And a lot of them (from what I can tell from the thumbnail) aren't even very good. The lighting is often terrible to the point where you can just tell that it's just some chick taking naked pics of herself and posting them here because FaceBook won't let you post nude pics.
And then some of the pictures try to be "artistic" by changing the filter or making it black and white because everyone knows that black and white automatically makes something artistic.
And then there's the expressions that the girls have. Usually they range from "Lolz, I'm naked" to "Rawr, I'm trying really hard to make a smexy face, look how smexy mah face is" .
And the really funny ones are the ones with the titles that make a reference to something else that happens to be in the picture that's NOT bewbs, as if anyone is really looking anywhere else.
"Soulful Eyes" Honey, no one is looking at your eyes when you're doing a naked crab-walk.
This isn't to say that I haven't seen some nice artistic nudes here on DA. Ones where you're less focused on the fact that there's a naked woman because she isn't being displayed like a piece of meat. Nudes where the woman isn't just posing to best show off her sweater meat; where the model actually has a real expression and isn't trying to do her best porno-pout so she can feel better about herself because her daddy never loved her.
Now, I'm no real art critic, so this is just how I feel about most of the nudes that I see. I understand why there are so many on the popular pages; boobs are beloved by many and that isn't going to change. I guess I might just be a bit bitter because the male form doesn't seem to get much love on the front page....
