This is why I hate the art world

Alcoholic Snow White? That’s hilarious!

Oh. Wait. You’re serious? Like very, very serious? Like Disney Princesses face Rape and Murder kind of serious?

Sigh. My first taste of this was Dadaism, which I thought was playful and fun when I first read about it as a wee lass. Turns out, it’s not. It’s super cereal.

Eh. The photographer is a kid still in art school. Good on her for figuring out how to manipulate her milieu into giving her asspats. Which a mature her can convert into genuinely good art, I hope. Maybe even something playful and fun.

She looks way too clean & well-kept to be derrrunk… add some dried out skin and matted hair in there…

She should just get the un-bowdlerized versions of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, or 1000 and 1 Arabian Nights, rather than beating up on creepy old Walt.

Plenty of unhappy subject matter to express as art. But that would imply reading, rather than watching movies I suppose.

SJW thought exercise for the day.
Not to be too blunt, but isn’t rape, brutality or sex trafficking a reflection on the evil nature of the perpetrators rather than the purity of the princess?

Or does the artist feel such a princess is now impure and defiled thereby carrying on the standard established by the patriarchy.

Was it Andy Warhol who said there is nothing more bourgeois than shocking the squares?

No, wait, I looked it up–“Nothing is more bourgeois than to be afraid to look bourgeois.”

Oh, well. What happened to the good old days when getting crosswise with the Disney legal department was a really bad idea?

How precious.

And tobacco, really?

The “world problems” set uses Bad Stuff Happening To Women. Very creepy.

But she has lots of other photos; the Family and Friends set includes a portrait of a cute wittle girl.

Yeah—Winston 100s Gold ruined me.

I wonder if Disney would have a case here… I would think they would. Without using the “Disney Princess public image”, these would be just a series of not very good photographs.

I thought Disney princesses were supposed to be pretty.

SJWs shit on everything. How else can they describe their self hatred?

I’ve been watching this youtube. We joke about Olivia De Havilland, but she took a very principled anti communist stand when it was very unpopular in Hwd. I just checked her wiki page and it is reflected in there, so I guess I am the last to know. :)

In defense, most Disney princesses face murder, druggings and kidnappings while a case could be made that a forced marriage is rape, so they’re just realistic.
So long as they come with a happy ending

“Won’t matter dearie, you’ll be raped, or murdered no doubt, might as well throw out all those dreamy dreams of yours and prepare for a life of suffering followed by a horrid death!”

The uplifting story of a sad and sorry ending. Yes indeed.
Gives a youth something to look forward during life’s trying times don’t it?

:)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
