I could have sworn I read about this story like a year ago.


#3

So if Vogue is gross for publishing these pictures, isn’t Gawker equally gross for republishing the same pictures?


#4

Or longer.


#5

Damn time flies.

So why the repost of old news, then?

I’m pretty sure we’ve been reading about this since the 70s…

I was a sex vixen when I was six years old! For a while I had a recurring dream that I had the power to turn other kids I knew into human rabbits. And of course, when I did, their clothes would slowly fall off as we frolicked in Bacchanalian revels. It was hot!

Fair point.

I remember my mom had an issue with Brook Shields, due to her earlier roles in movies like the Blue Lagoon & Pretty Baby (which is why I wasn’t allowed to have the doll as a kid.)

That ad is just perverse. o.m.g.

Considering how she was posed and styled as a child I’m always amazed at how seemingly normal she grew up to be…

@peregrinus_bis - I know right? Killing us Softly the first one was made in the 70s and specifically addresses that image. It really really good. I recommend it to everyone. Its just so good.

Yeah, looking through the image results from my query, I now get why my mom had such an issue with her as any kind of role model for me.

well, this seems like as good a place as any for this:
