MAC Charm Pale, bringing you a bit of NSFW for the day

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

You’d think it would be polite to at least warn us, MAC. Sheesh! :P

(But on a serious note: why on earth is a Holiday promo image for a cosmetics company NSFW? That’s ridiculous. It doesn’t personally offend me or anything, but I can think of a lot of moms who would hate for their four-year-olds to stumble across an image like this. I mean, MAC often prints out larger-than-life posters for their stores; what if this has plans to be one of them?)

(Oh, and P.S. is it just me, or are her nails leaning really… vomit-green?)

    I don't really care, I think as a culture we need to stop flipping out about boobs. Heck, in Manitoba and a couple of other provinces it's actually perfectly legal for women to go topless but nobody does because of the cultural taboo.

    Boobs are boobs are boobs. Honestly, most 2-4 year olds don't know it's wrong to see them (trust me, I've baby-sat enough of them). Only the parents freak out about it and then the kid learns, "Oh, boobies are baaaaaaaaaaad." Of course, when they become teens and if they're female, most panic when they start developing them (don't tell me you didn't because I bet you did).

    And that color on her nails is called khaki. They use that color on desert uniforms for the Army. That isn't green by a long shot. Do you need your eyes checked? <- is cranky from finals

  3. Yikes I lost half my comment when I signed into twitter! Darn! Oh well it was tl;dr anyways.

    What I wanted to say is I'm totally on board with you on this issue. Personally, I've seen tons of nipples in my 20 years, and one more certainly ain't going to hurt ;) Having nudity in marketing campaigns just doesn't irk me at all. However, it really does bother some people. I think in the end, their right to not feel uncomfortable in public outweighs my right to look at boobies.
