    yeah, well put roxm. it sounds like your comments function as a critique against the way that magazines, contemporary photography methods, and the porno scene attempt to normalize or universalize the way they depict women and sex. and your main problem with it, it seems to me, is that this type of normalization is actually incongruent with all the diverse and different ways people look and experience sex.

    i think when phogasmic says "s/he doesn't wanna see the art go away," s/he sums up their (nongravis, included) side of it. People that take pictures, in other words - and especially those that get paid for it -wanna continue to do it cause they like it and they wanna protect their jobs. thus, if they fully admitted your points, they would ultimately be admitting that they are engaging in unethical work, or that their hobby is detrimental to women's mental health. clearly, they don't wanna do this.

    Let me add one point (and I think here's where the rubber meets the road, so to speak). *The exercise of a skill or craft does not automatically indicate that an activity is morally justifiable.* For example, just because Robert MacNamara was trained in business and economics at Harvard does not mean that using his knowledge and skills to orchestrate the Vietnam War was a justifiable and ethical use of those skills. In fact, many would say he used his analytical skills in a way that was ethically wrong (over 3,000,000 Vietnamese died).

    I agree with you. I think that airbrushing and magazine depictions of women often distort reality, and this has a detrimental effect on women's self image and sense of self worth. And people involved in it should find other ways to use their knowledge and skills.

    In other fields, such as nuclear science, this is a huge problem. Engineers and chemists that make technology for nuclear weaponry have a lot of skills, but use them in a way that threatens the survival of their communities and their world (chernobyl, Iran, etc).

    This.

    The idea that the Democrats are pushing for reform is wishful thinking. If anyone actually wanted reform, they could do it. The Dems throw everything they can think of in the way of their own success, they whine about bipartisanship as a way of not actually doing anything.

    Everyone's talking about 60 votes as if they don't remember what a "majority" means any more. Let a "blue dog" vote against the bill, if they've got balls enough to do so. But with 60 votes in the Senate...why are filibusters even a concern? Any Democrat that would filibuster a Democratic bill (let alone, this historic plank of the Democratic platform) needs to be taken out behind the woodshed and taught a lesson.

    This article hits home to me in many ways. My parents are West Indian and I was born here, but raised West Indian not American. And yes my parents fit the stereotype of the West Indian. They saved up money from the time they got here to buy their own house and didn't complain about racism. When they first were looking at houses, no one wanted to sell to them in a white neighborhood. So my dad bought an abandoned house in the white neighborhood and fixed it up himself after work each day. Education was ground into me. Rue the day when I brought home a B in math on my report card, you'd think it was the worst thing every from my mom's reaction. My dad has been through some awful racism, and still doesn't give a damn. To him anything in America is better than the poverty he grew up in.

    I did the stereotypical "immigrant's child" thing. I went to private schools, got into an elite college, now getting my doctorate. I am really proud of the values of hard work and education that were instilled in me from the time I was young. At the same time, I don't like being used as a "model minority" against Black Americans and this is where I usually split ways with my parents. It can be really hard for them to see institutional racism and its effects where I can see it loud and clear.

    There are times where I wish they understood it more however I also now that as the article says "Assimilation is suicide." My dad's side of the family is not the pretty story of West Indian immigrants. His brother and sisters all immigrated and promptly shed their culture and seemed to have picked up the worst of American culture. Sometimes I wish that most of my family didn't immigrate to the U.S. They left all their values behind and have become thoroughly Americanized and are worse for it.

    This feeds into perception as well. It used to be that West Indian immigrants were looked upon favorably but at least in Brooklyn there seems to be no difference in perception between American and West Indian Blacks. Most of the West Indian children are assimilated and are perceived no differently I believe. Furthermore the economic class of West Indian immigrants have changed from mostly middle class to a large number of lower class immigrants.

    I am not sure how West Indian blacks are perceived now in NYC, but I think that good perception is waning.

    edited: I'm interested in how West Indians might be perceived in other states.

    Right but that is the problem. The right can't stop it. They were wrong on terrorism, they were wrong in torturing, they were wrong on fiscal policy, they were wrong on iraq, they let osama get away, virtually every policy they enacted was wrong. The republicans got their way for 8 years and the country is a disaster. Most of their argument can no longer be validly backed up by fact.They don't have a leg to stand on so they focus on changing the topic.......that is why they scream rant and rave. So we quit talking about the issue and focus on the argument instead. Getting along would require republicans to go into the woods for another 40 years to find themselves.

    You are a a willing patriotic member of this country and have the duty to pay your fair share of taxes to ensure that we live in a just and civil society. You have a choice when you go to vote. Why don't you drop the drama queen gun to the head bullshit nobody has a gun to their head.

    P.S. Yep he lied. Emergency rooms treat patients regardless of where they are from and will in the future.

    P.P.S. You are already paying taxes that go to health care they are going to keep spending that amount.

    True about NATO, I meant the UN though, sorry. And the UN has only permitted force *twice* in it's history.

    Notice I concede the 2003 Iraq invasion though. And I will give you the meddling in Iran, that can't be overlooked at all.

    But Afghanistan based Al Queada, Osama Bin Laden and the *organizations* that made 9/11 happen. If a British guy attacks you through a Burmese terrorist cell, you don't invade Britain, so that argument doesn't hold up.

    And Korea and Vietnam I think we can both agree were a Cold War issue and who started what during the Cold War can be argued both ways successfully. You can say we had no business being there, or you can say Russia secretly funding overthrows of democratic nations is a threat. Either way really, so I think neither of us can really claim right or wrong on those two. Though undoubtedly the US response didn't work.

    True, now that those countries can't ally with a superpower they have to expand their own military to make up for the "the Soviets can come back us up or sell us their stuff". It's not dormant anymore, but we aren't racing anyone, they're just playing catch up. At least until this recent development.

    yes, I killed my brother in law, with a bat. The reason my sentence was so short is because my nephew (his son) and my sister testified on my behalf.

    I still get sick thinking about what I did, because I am not a violent person by any means.

    He used to beat my sister, badly. My brother and I drifted apart from her because she would DEFEND him, and refused to leave. (even though we told her time and again she would be safe living with my brother and I).

    Well my brother's wedding day came around, and due to pressure from my parents he invited my sister and her piece of shit husband. She was delighted just to get a phone call from my brother after a few years of no contacted, and assured us that she would be thrilled to come, along with her son (minus douchebag husband).

    She never showed up, and so I became worried, she seemed so excited to come, and even though her husband was a complete dirtball, everyone assumed she could come to her own brother's wedding without issue.

    About 3 hours into the reception, and no answers at her place from repeated phone calls from my parents, me and my father hopped in his truck and made the 40 min drive to her place. We found her sobbing in her car in the driveway. Her face was a fucking wreck. According to my sister in court, he had beat her with his fists as well as a broken mop handle.

    He had hit her before but never like this. His reasoning for doing was according her was that she was going to "whore herself out" at my brothers wedding.

    When I saw her face I simply lost total control, even now it is hard to recall specific details, but I ended up going inside, grabbing my nephews bat and striking him repeatedly over the head until he stopped moving (20+ times). He never said anything or begged me to stop, it was over very quickly, I don't really think he had time to react for one, and secondly it probably came a surprise to him that I was in his house.

    My sister hates me to this day, but I am trying to become close with my nephew (i've been out for 2 years now). I feel horrid for taking his father away.

    I am female. I work in an adult entertainment boutique/video store, am an amateur photographer. I am not offended by sex or sexuality (obviously) and I have a keen eye for the visually aesthetic. I love the human form and would LOVE to see some female friendly visual erotica. I am SO sick of watching "male-centric" porn where all you get is a dis-embodied dick being sucked for twenty minutes then the horribly hookered-up female gets twenty seconds (if any) stimulation and then takes twenty minutes more pounding in whatever orifice has yet to be plunged like a toilet. The only time women get their due is in the girl-on-girl scenes!

    Thank you so much for posting nawny, I have been wanting to unleash this rant. If I could up-vote twice I would.

    To the porn industry: 1)NOTHING about Ron Jeremy is sexy; 2)Foreplay or GTFO!!!

    I live at the other end of town from the Malibu ,... right next to Cammarano's old HQ.... I get the reference. Hoboken politics has been fucked up and run by special interests for a while. (Forever)

    As an aside, I know Ravi Bhalla somewhat because he's a family friend and he's an actual good guy... He's on city council and is an amazing person. I hate all politicians, but he's a great, great person and I hope that he becomes mayor first, then aspires to more prominent national positions....He's not part of the old boys club that cammarano was clearly with

    Discourage him from engaging with you by telling him that you're busy with work. If he persists to bug you during your work hours, keep complimenting him that it must be nice that he has so much free time or to have so few duties to talk all the time.

    Intentionally make other plans for lunch, where it is implied that he is not invited to join.

    Try to keep more of a blank expression/flat affect when speaking with him. You don't have to be a robogirl or appear angry, just indifferent...even a masher should get the idea after a week or two.

    I would define that as anarchists who particularly subscribe to the street protest tactic of marching in Black Blocs at protests to either be a presence, march, or engage in direct action like stopping traffic, building barricades or property destruction. It started off with the Autonomen movement in Germany and involves dressing uniformly in black [often hoodies] while covering your face for anonymity sake.

    It is a street action tactic that has been in use for about 20 years, but first saw it's debut in the United States at protests against the first Gulf War in San Francisco in 1991 but came into prominence with the anti-globalization protests in Seattle in 1999.

    This is opposed to being an anarchist in the purely political philosophy sense, who might pursue any number of tactics.

    Really I think the problem is more with something in the American culture, along with socio-economic issues, that leads to violence. You can ban all guns, but I'll still be able to swing by the gas station with $5 and throw together a Molotov cocktail. I think that lots of people in the debate in the US on both sides have such a hard-on (positive or negative) for guns because they're so iconic in the American public mind.

    Keeping killing tools away from people is well-nigh impossible, since they're so easy to make or steal. Taking away their reasons to kill in the first place is just about as impossible, but I'd rather have armed happy people than disarmed angry people.

    I'm going to say something that you won't want to hear, so I'm hoping you don't take this the wrong way.

    You're not ready to get this graphics work done yet.

    You've got it just completely backwards. You've decided that you're going to use a cartoon shader, but you don't know what genre of game you're making. You've got a theme picked out, but you don't know how the player is going to make moves or whether the game will be any fun.

    It's like trying to build a house by deciding the living room will be painted green and there will be a nice set of gingham curtains in the kitchen. That's nice and all, but where's the foundation going to be poured? You can't just wing it and expect that the graphics and the theme are going to make it work.

    Again, I'm not trying to be a dick. I've been bit by this a bunch and I've seen many promising developers go down in flames to the same kind of thing.

    You need to start by knowing, at the very least, what kind of game you're going to make. Then, make that game, using whatever shitty graphics you can put together. When it's working, and you're playing it, and it's at least a little fun, *then* go out and see if you can get someone to work on the art.

    Even if you get lucky and you wind up using the assets an artist would give you right now, you don't know the scope of what you need, and you'll wind up paying someone else to either poorly mimic the original artist's style, or to redo the art entirely. Either way, it's not going to do you any favors to have the modeling done at this point in the game's development.

    > It's not a silver bullet, though, and won't replace your brain.

    In my other reply where I wonder if a "Java of Concurrency" is even possible, this is what makes we wonder that. My experience with these constructs is the same; yes, it is radically and truly easier than threads and locks, but if I take any of the several "of the masses" Java developers (who may not even be "bad" but aren't "good") and throw them at a heavily concurrent problem, even with these tools, I would not expect a running system to result. OO spaghetti is much easier to bash into some sort of compliance than concurrency spaghetti.
