so over this sort of thing

ugh. can we call for a moratorium on the whole tattoo covered ladies are hot hot hot shit? didn't the site start out to bring back the whole burlesque/pin up aesthetic? nowadays they're all basically tattoo covered ladies doing the same shit that normal porn stars do. is the new way to be different going to be adamantly anti-tattoos?

this image is basically the visual equivalent of SG jumping the shark. but it's not like they haven't had people say bad things about them in the past, right?

I think you forgot the image. Btw, I loathe SG. I understand that when the site was founded, it did a good job of shedding light on an under appreciated aesthetic. Now they are just as homogenized and boring as all other mainstream porn sites.

I agree with you about the picture and would also like to add...

If I am correct in my understanding, the whole feminist angle of Suicide Girls is that regardless of what society says, all women are beautiful. I haven't seen any average looking women on the site. In this day and age, a gorgeous woman with tattoos and piercings will most likely be ogled just as much as a gorgeous woman without tattoos and piercings.

When the site launched, Suicide Girls may have been ahead of its time, but now the times have caught up and they no longer bring anything interesting to the table.

they've commodified the whole alt*chick thing and as a direct, and unsurprising, result they've cheapened the whole thing for everyone else. these ladies are as much objects as everyone else regardless of how many "chuck" books they might have read.
