naughty reactionaries

by minima whatever

I am tired of men thinking that drawing or painting naked women in a ‘peeping’ manner is somehow radical, new, or risky. To the point of being honestly surprised about each and every apparently reasonably intelligent man I witness saying or writing this. And I have witnessed  more than one. (Cases in point: Every painting of ‘Bathseba bathing’ ever.)

Hint: Just because the ideas of voyeurism and sexual harassment turn you on and feel somehow ‘naughty’ to you, transforming them into art is not automatically an interesting thing. Turning your gaze around on your own peeping self might be, if you’re lucky and do it right.
