The media and its activism in highlighting stories such as Jessica’s or Meher’s had almost made me want to send them a note of thankfulness.
However,as before, the media has revealed itself as a double edged sword.It has angered, disgusted and irked me enough to write this piece. The issue in question is the undignified, uncalled for and blowing up beyond all proportions of accepted decency, the ‘wardrobe malfunction’scam.
For Petes sake, it was an accident..it could happen anywhere, to anyone on any day. Becoz it involves the dis-robing of a popular model and therefore titillates the average male and his perverse sense of voyeurism, it has received the kind of attention from not only the press and t.v. but also the internet. It is the ‘hot’ topic of the week !!
Appears as if the public is so starved of excitement simultaneously so hungering for it, that about ‘anything’, even if it is a split second slump of a gown, sends them into a ‘viagric’ tizzy.
Despite the strides we seem to be making in all areas of life as an ‘evolved’ race, or so we’d like to believe, the manner in which the public and the gazers across the board have lapped up this story with their tongues hanging out, clamouring for more, is appalling and highly deplorable.
Grow Up Guys!! Latch on to more than the story of an unclasped hook!!
