Candidate's livestreamed sex acts are a distraction, Virginia Democrats say
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — More Virginia Democrats on Tuesday cast the controversy surrounding a legislative candidate who livestreamed herself performing sex acts as a distraction from the stakes in this fall's elections, while stopping short of fully championing her continued campaign.
Neither the state party nor the House Democratic caucus has publicly called for Susanna Gibson to end her campaign after it was revealed last week that she had sex with her husband in live videos posted on a pornographic website and asked viewers to pay them money in return for carrying out specific sex acts.
But neither group has publicly declared how much support — financial or otherwise — Gibson can expect moving forward. . . . .
Trump appeared in two porn flix (though he was clothed).
His wife has done full frontal nude photography.
Trump's a first for that.
Prostitutes and Politicians have been interchangeable terms - and jobs - for thousands of years. Is anyone surprised by this story?
I don't care about Trump.
Melania was a model.
I'll never vote for him anyway.
Stop the whataboutism.
I am a retired professional photographer.
No model with good taste, nor any photographer with good taste that I know ever took a shot like this:
You guys whatabout all day long so cut the crap.
I never whatabout, so cut the false accusations. I'm not part of any "you guys."
Just about every model of renown did nude shots at one time or another.
Not like that one. Hardly an artful pose.
On the contrary, it's pretty pedestrian, but it remains beside the point.
Note how the word porn isn’t automatically filtered out though.
Strange that a poster with typically such a high level of integrity would make such an error in facts.
I wouldn't characterize pedestrian as 'artful'. Besides, If I were taking a full frontal of a woman, I wouldn't ask her to hide her genitals, as there is nothing to be ashamed of. she's square posed, not S posed, Ugh. She's all greased up, got a stupid look on her face, and she's grabbing her crotch because she's ashamed, as far as I can tell. The photo sucks on every level.
What is surprising is that candidates who have been shown to have participated in harmful economic practices are less embarrassed than someone who has had (oh, my!) sex.
is that the right's Christian pinup girl? how the right has changed...
Adultery, Divorce, the list goes on, that is the maga family values party?
More sex = less crime
So what? She's irrelevant to the topic.
Sort of. While legally married, she and Bill Stevenson had been separated for almost a year and were in the process of a divorce, which was finalized 2 months after Joe and Jill met. I honestly don't see an issue here.
And...you believe that. Bless your heart!
Nothing Melania did would raise an eyebrow in Europe.
Ah, so we're now in "no true Scotsman" territory.
Tasteless photography no longer raises eyebrows, we crossed that Rubicon years ago.
No, I wouldn't go that far, I just stated no photographer I know, that's not quite the same thing. I know there are plenty of real photographers shooting tasteless photography,
Mapplethorpe pushed those boundaries years ago. But he knows how to handle a camera, though I don't care much for some of his gross photos, the shots are done well.
Thing about art, everyone is looking for a schtick, something that grabs attention, and in that pursuit, it's bound to become tasteless at some point, and that proposition has come true, like i said, long ago.
then don't make a comment about it, '(pedestrian', which calls for a response, ie., if you think something is irrelevant, shouldn't be discussed in the thread, don't make a statement about it that calls for a response)
As you wish.
