So Ellen Degeneres posted the unicorn picture... its sparked quite a debate... 300 comments in 30 minutes...


Click HERE to see it and the comments on facebook are now over 600...
Shadey Update: I wrote on her page a calm nice comment saying how the photo series was made to celebrate diversity, show sex/sexuality in a fun way, celebrate imagination, break stereotypes/constructs of masculinity, be gay positive, and fun, and taken out of context the comments are actually hateful and close to bullying... they did not post my comment.... thats disappointing.

Like I said, who's the joker that's claiming it's not you, but a guy from some Aussie band? Bizarre...

Steve said...

Who knew you were in an Australian band?!

Vic Gen said...

I know right that's funny, to be in a band you didn't even know you where in :-)

The site doesn't appreciate that it's deliberate art -- they lump it with a bunch of amateur photos that are unintentionally awful.

It's supposed to be campy. Exterface are aware of the absurdism, but they're being laughed at like they didn't know what a man or unicorn is "supposed" to be.

Ellen got herself a Bad Paid-For Webmaster.

the context in which the picture is presented is probably more offensive than any ignorant homophobic dumbass moron remarks could possibly be

Once again your creativity and brilliance goes beyond it's original intentions to entertain and to inspire, and winds up being bold and educational. You have the strength to be put in these situations to stand up for want you believe in, amongst the ignorant. The comments are awful, but the fact that millions of people who don't understand the image are forced to reckon with it. Keep up the good work, David!

Whatever, you're hot, the oufit is amazing, and the whole photo shoot is fantastic. You should be proud. And besides it's good press, Ellen thinks it's quite cute obviously, anonymous commenters on the internets are gonna hate. Sucks that they didn't publish your comment though.

I stuck up for you on her web page. In thought the comments were harsh and uncalled for. They obviously had no idea that you'd see it.
