Ward making a stand against teenage boobies.
the thing I dont understand is why is ward *such* an asshole?
I would love to stand against some teenage boobs, for now I'll have to make do w/ pictures.
Facebook wouldn't like one itty bitty titty:
in all fairness to facebook, if I thought I was looking at teenage boobies and they turned out to be porcelain doll nipples, I would feel pretty pissed as well.
they probably had a heap of complaints.
I'm not surprised that porcelain dolls of that nature cost $45,000 since they are one-off and made by an artist.
It's not correct to say "it's just a doll". It certainly is not.
It's kind of obvious she's trying to sell her wares using female nudity.
Facebook is a private company. She is complaining about her "campaign", is she paying for ads there or is she just posting ads for free on her facebook page? Either way, it's regulated by facebook's terms of service or her advertising contract so she has nothing to complain about. Either stop paying for ads, or use some other free service if too much of a cheapskate.
(Plus, she just got a million in free advertising. Who is to say that getting banned wasn't her goal from the beginning? She certainly knew who to call to get publicity on international news services out of this.)
OK, this was just photos on her own free facebook page.
She complains about the free page, she blames "repressed american puritanism" blah blah blah. Facebook is based in US, don't use it if you hate america so much you stupid fat australian whore!
"Subscribe to our mailing list to keep up with the happenings in 'nipplegate' and also to be advised of our specials".
This is a completely fabricated event. Wouldn't be so bad if she didn't use it to insult americans while being a fat parasite that wants things from american companies for free.
<cough> It's obviously within FaceBlock's gift to provide or deny such publicity. When they reach sufficient smarts you should have to ask to be banned - for a swinging fee.
> It's kind of obvious she's trying to sell her wares using female nudity.
She could just get her tits out. It would be cheaper than 45 grand for a doll.
"Bully", I think you're missing the point.
LOTS of people pull their tits out, in New Orleans during Mardi Gras it happens all the time.
But, if you could get $45K for a "product", that's a cash business.
Another way to put it:
Why sell the cow for cheap, when you can sell a model cow for 45 grand?
You don't have to hate America, just because you think American puritanism sucks. American puritanism is just one of those annoying things, like the (vaguely fascist) American flag worship, and the apparent level of religiosity, that just baffles many foreigners. (And probably some of its citizens, no doubt.)
This woman is probably just playing to the home crowd. She knows that babbling on about American puritanism will get her fellow convicts nodding sagely, so off she goes. Same as in any country.
I always thought Australian puritanism was greater than US puritanism -- but then, I'm IN the US, so what do I know about Australia?
WsV might tell us of New Zealand puritanism, if any.
How often do you use the word swingeing? Isn't that from shakespeare time? Are you a historical reenactor, or is that word making a comeback.
". It would be cheaper than 45 grand for a doll."
1. It's a nice doll.
2. With her own tits, the media story would be "crazed nude woman behaving wrongly" rather than "woman with doll oppressed by american fiends"
"just because you think American puritanism sucks"
I see in her comments she has a lot of australian muslim customers. The chances an american reported the photo is 0% because no one in the US is visiting a net jewelry shop based in australia.
"babbling on about American puritanism will get her fellow convicts nodding sagely"
+10 for use of convicts
"WsV might tell us of New Zealand puritanism"
Kiwiland is notorious for its meaningless sex escapades. Don't NZ women rank #1 year after year for number of sex partners?
New Zealand women are regularly getting drunk and cruising around in packs looking for men to have sex with.
That's one of the findings of a TVNZ Sunday investigation into the sexual behaviour of New Zealand women. The programme makers did the story after Kiwi women last year topped the Durex Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey as the world's most promiscuous.
They are reported to have an average of 20 sexual partners, double that of their Australian and British counterparts and almost three times the global average of seven.
Dr Beres interviewed young Canadians aged 19 to 25 about their casual sex experiences, while Ms Farvid interviewed New Zealanders in the same age bracket. The New Zealand women were more likely to have actively initiated casual sex, whereas the Canadians were more likely to say it "just happened". Drink was used by some as an excuse for their choices.
Studies have shown New Zealanders start sex younger than in many countries and have high rates of teen pregnancies and STDs. By the age of 25, 13 per cent of women have had more than 10 sexual partners.
> But, if you could get $45K for a "product", that's a cash business.
She's not selling the doll, is she? I thought she was using it to promote her own stuff.
Oh! You're saying the Jewelry Lady could have herself photographed topless, instead of paying $45K for a doll.
This is true -- except by using the doll, she's travelled (up till now, anyway) under the Australian Nudity Radar. The dolls are ART (as the price-tag demonstrates) and so can be defended as an ART-full way of showing off her jewelry (while still having naked boobies, yay!)
Where shots of her topless would not be ART, and thus more likely to be criticized.
Besides which, her business IS Jewelry -- being seen as cheap is not seen as a good thing in that business. You'll note at no time did she suggest using a nude Barbie.
> Where shots of her topless would not be ART, and thus more likely to be criticized.
I'll take the pictures. They'll be very tasteful.
>How often do you use the word swingeing? Isn't that from shakespeare time?
It's a bit older than that:
BTW most of what is regarded as the American dialect stems from Shakesperian times as the Pilgrims carted it off to a rustic timecapsule while the decadent english got on with adding frills such as frenchified spelling.

Er, what???? Oz TV quite happily shows tits in prime time and total nudity later on at night. "Underbelly" has been sold to the US - it would be interesting to compare the remake to the original when it emerges:
Good show if you like guns and tits. But never in the same frame - we have a hangup about sex mixed with violence.
