VOGUE INTERNATIONAL: Choking woman to sell clothes…

VOGUE INTERNATIONAL September 2012: Choking woman to sell clothes…

What makes this crazy is that Terry Richardson, who in 2010 was accused of sexually harassing a model he photographed, photographed Ms. Seymour and Mr. Teixeira for this Vogue cover.

The inside fashion spread also features Mr. Teixeira touching Ms. Seymour’s breast and Seymour grabbing the fellow model’s pants.

This truly disturbing image of a woman being choked sends a dangerous message to anyone who sees this magazine – That choking is a sign of passion rather than of violence. While this cover was perhaps intended to shock and thrill potential readers, the truly shocking fact is that it glorifies violence against women as an act of love. 

A 2008 Journal of Emergency Medicine study of murders of women in 11 cities found that 43% of women who were killed by intimate partners had experienced at least one previous episode of choking before being killed.

What do you think?

They take a particular type of ageless woman – she could be 20 or 40, and set her with a very young looking man. Why? I wonder how this “light” aggression will proceed moving forward.

It is just so weird how the deep state media always pushes two conflicting messages. One is that everything men do is bad and toxic, and them even existing is a threat to women, and the other is if they wear a dress let them into women’s personal spaces, and even more so that it’s hot and sexy for men to choke a woman. I’m sure this is part of their pushed chaos probably from their mischievous fallen angel.

P.S. It looks really gross, and I’m wondering if the hand is just an easy way to hide an adam’s apple.

Even worse yet, I’m sure this magazine is sitting on the counters at all kinds of doctor’s offices and public spaces, so that the public can have fun with the gross softcore p**n that they didn’t chose to see.

It’s interesting he has his index finger jutted out and its tip is fortuitously just at the opening of his lips. It equally looks sexual and aggressive, his hand reminds me of little boys playing cowboys. They took great care to show as much of that hand as possible, so it is not accidental. A choice of extremes?
