Rolling Stone cover (April 2007) advertising the movie Grindhouse.
Right. Also, that Hispanic, Latinas & White women are sexy, also.
This also legitimates female nudity, but still retains the classic taboos of genitals and breasts not being shown. Those would be too much.
How else could one advertise the movie Grindhouse except through the use of sexualized females and firearm violence? The movie isn't about late 18th Century etiquette, that's for sure. Honesty in advertising, I'd say.
No no, it's not saying that violence is sexy.
It's saying that Rosario Dawson and Rose McGowan are sexy.
And that is correct.
Ironically, Rolling Stone is a very anti-gun publication. Like Hollywood, which is also anti-gun, they see no hypocrisy in making money from glorifying guns and violence.
The vast majority of guns (about 300 million) in America are owned by very boring people (about 70 million) who keep them for lawful uses and do nothing violent with them. Rolling Stone and Hollywood would prefer that these guns be taken away.
I agree with Kevin. The problem starts with the movie and continues with the advertising.
