Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Hate Your Face

Ha Ha Ha Ha!

"Dave M"! I see that the sock puppet is running out of names that are any good.

The only Rat I'm viewing on this comment thread is you. And the orange cheese is screwing your brain into excremented fodder.

Also, how classy of you to interject Seth Rich into this comment thread. Hopefully for you, his family doesn't figure out who you are. They have been notoriously protective about keeping his legacy untainted by sock puppet troll POSs such as yourself.

It did before this, but now, it sucks even more to be a troll such as yourself.

Good one AZ/DC! You forgot to mention the Clinton Campaign worker, Seth Rich, who was murdered after Julius Asange at Wikileaks got ahold of Hillary and Huma's emails. They are leading you like a rat to cheese. Show them who is boss here.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

My fellow HumanBean,

Websters New College Dictionary defines fetishization as, To treat with unwarranted respect: to overvalue. If then, you judge the author to be guilty of unwarranted respect for a sex worker, are you not the one who is guilty of judgement?

I have had the privilege of not just reading but analyzing and studying Tucson Salvage as a body of work both inside and outside the classrooms of higher learning institutions and, alongside a jury of my peers, have found the work to have academic merit in both a sociological and creative nonfiction context. This writing and its unflinching depiction of oft-marginalized
voices holds equal weight in the Ivory Tower and down on the street corner (a difficult feat to manage indeed.)

In the spirit of Salvage and its underlying message that we are all as human beings in this thing together, I shake your hand and offer you the respectful disagreement that we should all be trying to afford one another every day.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Magdalena,

I was comparing photographers and writers who make a living documenting the misery of others and questioning when it crosses a line. These are ethical questions that are openly discussed among photographers and writers. Your creatively interpretive response reminded me of something Trump would say. Nobody was comparing empty buildings to people! You big orange goof.

The one point I want to address from your post is this, because it's so glaring:

*Is presenting a humans positive assets alongside their more obvious flaws really fetishizing them?

Does Brian figuratively fetishize these people as your question presumes I was referecing? I think he does, but that was not my point. It's not that deep, he is LITERALLY festishizing them, which is way worse! Did you even read this piece? I will quote one section in particular for you:

"Tia cameoed in a previous Tucson Salvage column and she is too pretty and white and healthy-looking to be anywhere near a homeless camp. You don't see homeless people like her every day"

I am going to stop here. That is text book reductive fetishization of a person based on looks, gender and race. It's crazy that my fellow liberals are embracing this kind of stuff so openly!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Hate Your Face

Hatred and anger?

How foolish of you to assume that when I'm laughing I'm experiencing hatred and anger. You tRump cultists are hilarious! I laugh at anyone who constantly has the facts thrown in their face and they just outright refuse to believe it; yet shit like "Pizzagate" and "Obama's a Kenyan" are the real deal to tRump loving losers. Yes, I typed losers, although I am aware "K.A.G." & "Ophelia" is the same sad individual attempting to boost numbers by adapting a different username every time he/she posts a comment. Talk about pathetic sock-puppetry!

Keep on posting 'em Ophelia MAGA KAG Trump 2020 clown. I promise it will create humour and laughter for me, not the hatred and anger built up in you which you have attempted to project on to me.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Hate Your Face

Don't laugh too hard. He has created so much hatred and anger in you that it could soon affect your health. Relax son, everything will be ok.
