Softcore Porn Ads? Pushing the Boundaries, Always By Mrs Vera West

     Thanks to the editor for this one as we enter the slow news period, with even the elites getting a bit tired, and they work 24/7, almost as hard as us.
So, we have:

“The models behind Bonds’ controversial campaign have spoken out after their underwear shoot went viral. Real-life couple Nicolas Rivet, 26, and Steve Samuel, 27, described the uproar as “confronting” and rejected criticism that the shoot resembled “softcore porn”, but said they had received “overwhelming support” since the campaign was released. Shot in Sydney and posted to Bonds’ official Instagram page, the ad depicts the two men kissing, posing topless and wearing Bonds boxers. Speaking exclusively to News Corp today, the Melbourne-based couple said the Bonds campaign was an important step “to see themselves (same-sex couples) being represented in the media”. “The main issue is that the photo wouldn’t be causing as much controversy if it was a straight couple,” Rivet said. “I think we need move away from this hetero-normative narrative, if we really want to see a change.” Samuel added: “They see two gay people that are kissing, and they think it’s racy … but that’s not what they (Bonds) were trying to achieve.” “A lot of people are saying it’s like softcore porn but we don’t see it like that,” Rivet said. “We’re two adults showing their love for one another. It’s just a little smooch, really.”

Responding to criticism that the shoot was “too sexy”, Samuel said: “The reason why it’s been seen as sexualised is because we’re in underwear”. The couple said Bonds had been supportive in the wake of the backlash, and they would “absolutely” model for the brand again. “If they were to include us in any future campaigns we would definitely want to be involved – we’re really proud of what they have done,” Rivet said. He said the campaign was a message to young gay people “so they can be validated by seeing someone like them represented in mainstream media” and hoped it would “open up a conversation about queer visibility and how important it is to be diverse”.

     Well, anyone could have seen this coming back in the 1960s, but it went from one thing to the next. See if my prediction that heterosexuality in any form will be criminalised in the future. But what about reproduction? My guess is that when this can be fully done by machine and tech, we will see the ban-the-hets-movement really kick in, with the blessing of the hets, who will be too dumbed down to raise even a finger to resist. After all, we have a social equivalent of Moore’s law, where politically correct power doubles every ten years.

    It would make for an interesting sci fi movie to predict, if this pc civilisation does not collapse in the near term, how things will go if there is 10,000 years of this, one thing after another.
