It Took the Intervention of a Kardashian, But the Media Allowed A Tiny Hole In Its Complete Blockade of the Balenciega P3do Chic Story

Their complete blockade allows a single ship through.

Kim Kardashian says she is "re-evaluating" her relationship with Balenciaga in light of the brand's recent ad campaign that featured images of young children posing with teddy bears that appeared to be wearing BDSM-inspired accessories.

"I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven't been disgusted and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened," Kardashian, 42, wrote in her Instagram story on Sunday.

"As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images," she continued. "The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society -- period."

Following the outcry surrounding their recent ad images, Balenciaga deleted all of its Instagram posts and shared a statement of apology on the social media platform.


"We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused," read the statement, which was shared last week. "Our plush bear bag should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms."

One image from Balenciaga's campaign appeared to show text from a 2008 Supreme Court decision that upheld a federal statute related to pornography that includes minors.

While Balenciaga did not reference this text specifically in its statement, the brand apologized for "displaying unsettling documents" in the recent campaign.

Balenciega, meanwhile, is making a lot of excuses.

They made so many excuses there I'm surprised they didn't call it "Putin's Photoshoot."

The View criticized Balenciega.

Not for normalizing the sexualization of children, of course. No, they're fine with that.

No, they only knocked Balenciega for playing into the narratives of "the far right."

You can sexualize children all you like -- just don't reinforce "the narratives of the far right" when you do it!

Alyssa Farah Griffin: "I found this ad campaign particularly distasteful, um, in this moment. So there's this, there's growing anti-LGBTQ sentiment right now, and how it's being framed is as portraying, you know, trans people as groomers. This is a term you'll hear on the far Right. They're groomers. This is where you get the anti-drag-queen stuff that we're seeing. So Balenciaga played right into their hands by having kids in a sexualized manner, carrying something that represents, you know, sex acts. I think it was a really bad misstep at a moment where it's just kind of a dangerous time to even give credence to those kind of insane takes."

The takes that the left are grooming children are "insane." Having a little girl stare at the camera glassy-eyed next to table covered in empty wine-glasses, holding a teddy-bear in a leather bondage rig, is just a "misstep."

OK Groomer.

39 Remember it is just a myth that we have an elite deeply accepting of pedophilia that are protected from prosecution.

Totally unrelated news out of California thanks to the Daily News:

Pedophiles are getting less than a year prison time after a range of horrific acts, including raping kids under 14, a DailyMail.com investigation reveals.

Analysis of a California database of sex offenders shows thousands of child molesters are being let out after just a few months, despite sentencing guidelines.


https://tinyurl.com/4wrwpbhe

More than 7,000 sex offenders were convicted of 'lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age' but were let out of prison the same year they were incarcerated, data from the California Megan's Law database says.

Others who committed some of the worst child sex crimes on the statute books served similarly short sentences, including 365 pedophiles convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child who spent less than 12 months in prison, 39 cases of sodomy with a child under 16, and three cases of kidnapping a child under 14 'with intent to commit lewd or lascivious acts', according to the data.

As I noted yesterday, notable queer Tim Dillon said "It's the DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING. What happened to nice families enjoying a turkey dinner and watching football? What the fuck was Balenciaga thinking? Why are we seeing drugged up kids with bondage bears?"

He then went on to lament that, since Balenciaga is the only haute couture firm that makes clothes for fat bastards like him, he would now have to boycott them forever and just wear regular clothes.

Couple of things here... It's refreshing to see *one* prominent homosexual denounce this shit emphatically. And it's sad that it's only one. There are plenty of grassroots gays like that - Gays Against Groomers, those kind of groups, but nobody prominent.

Luckily for him, he hasn't made "GAYGAYGAYGAYGAY" the core of his public persona; it's ancillary to his comedy. But for most of the gays in public life, it's all they've got. Stay on the Party & State line, or else it's OVAH.

They picked a man who is too old, has brain damage, is a total failure in his life, a racist, and a pedophile who molested his own grandchildren and is on camera groping kids, with a son who does the same and has been a crackhead for most of his life. On purpose.

I think Balenciaga was perfectly OK with all of that, and the photographer slipped in the court document. The document crossed the line by making it too obvious what their intentions were.

If not for the document, they would have done that rage inducing dance where they claim there's nothing wrong with what they did and you're just projecting your own sexual perversions on the picture.

Normalization of the abnormal, and then dialing that down again, and again, and again. There are no non-negotiables left. If a kid is told they can question/change their gender. If that "rule" means nothing -- why cant some kid think hey I'm frustrated and angry as hell, maybe the rule against shooting my classmates is negotiable as well?!

Exactly. They could have installed anyone they wanted, and they deliberately chose one of the worst choices conceivable.

They picked a man who is too old, has brain damage, is a total failure in his life, a racist, and a pedophile who molested his own grandchildren and is on camera groping kids, with a son who does the same and has been a crackhead for most of his life. On purpose.



They're rubbing our faces in it. Deliberately. And daring us to do anything about it.

Posted by: Cicero (@cicero43) at November 29, 2022 02:23 PM (guGkK)

I had a Communist professor who spent a half-hour of tortured logorrhea making a very simple point:

"The murder of 80 million people was very naughty, but it's ok because it was for good reasons, and China has a whole lot of people, so it's really not as damaging as it seems at scale, and the individual doesn't matter so much on balance with the collective."

After he finished, I raised my hand, and when called, did not address him, but the rest of the class. "OK, so you heard all that. Now ask yourselves, putting aside all those numbers... what if one of those 80 million was *you?* Or your mom?" Half the class's faces fell. You could see they were suddenly ashamed of the whole debate.

That dude hated me for the rest of the semester, and not privately. Very publicly. He couldn't fucking believe a student had the temerity to out his ghoulish, amoral worldview in front of the other maggots.

Sadly, their models used to be smoking hot, but now they are just weird. So there is absolutely no reason to pay any attention!

I got there safely and back (It was at a distance with lots of traffic) and it all went well even though I had an hour of sleep last night.

I had a lovely conversation with the Asst Funeral Director-because he drove me to and from the cemetery. I noticed he crossed himself as we passed a RC church so I figured he was Catholic. He said he has been married for 14 years and he and his wife and family (two girls) go to church every week and he thinks that's a problem with a lot of the country-no moral, ethical and religious grounding. I also told him (Because he is interested in history including church history) of St Titus Brandsma, the newly canonized Dutch priest and he mentioned that he thinks the European Union (which is targeting Dutch farmers with the approval of the Dutch government) is a disaster. From all that I guessed he was a conservative.

I think Atlantis probably existed, not as some utopian super-culture but as a prosperous pre-historical nation swallowed up by the sea as the ice age ended. A lot of the ocean was lower at that time, revealing land that went away when the ice melted.

Its also possible that the Mediterranean Sea was not a sea, that the Straits of Gibraltar were originally closed off then shattered, admitting the Atlantic Ocean waters.

I'm not sure why, but I watched it too. I rolled my eyes when that character first appeared, but then she was the one person who grew the most as the show went on. Ultimately I think they did a decent enough job with it.

Foresaw the whole resolution of the season within a couple episodes though. Didn't take any special genius to do so. Just plug and play everyone into their roles, based on how they started.

284 I'm just going to point out, as someone that has worked on photoshoots... you sign off on EVERYTHING if you are the creative director and the client. And you get higher ups to approve everything.

Supposedly Balenciaga is suing the group that put the ad campaigns together for them, but they will have zero standing. No way they didn't sign off on it and approve every page. Even if the demoness stylist and pedo photographer "snuck in" the pedo stuff, like the court papers, they still gave approval to kids holding bondage bears. You can't walk that back.

One of the best bloopers was kept in the movie.

The Priest calls Bruce Willis by his real name, "Mr. Willis", and Willis corrects him by saying "Dallas" and continuing the scene. They left it in.

I also liked Gary Oldman's character. Great actor.

336 He and Erasmus were witty folks. More means foolish, and they often called each other fools because of it.

A wonderful book which I have recommended before is Van Loon's Lives, by Hendrik Van Loon. It's a pre-WWII book and its conceit is that Van Loon and a friend live in a house in Amsterdam and one day wish they could meet some of the great people of the past. Erasmus turns up and grants the wish - each night they have to choose someone and write the name down, then the next night that person (Napoleon, Empress Theodora, Elizabeth I) will come to dinner with Van Loon, his friend and Erasmus.

There's a hidden sweetness and innocence to the characters in Hess films, even when they are terrible characters doing stupid stuff, that appeals to me. Somehow the unsophisticated humor works because of the heart and care behind it. The problem with a lot of films by someone like Will Ferrell is I can't tell if he likes the character he's playing, or secretly hates them and what they stand for. (Buddy the Elf, Ricky Bobby, etc.) I love Wes Anderson films, but he eventually goes over the twee line, every time in every film. They are always a visual treat but they insist upon themselves.

No way. I used to do shit like this in my former life. There are so many people involved, and these things go through so many iterations it's mind blowing. Easily 2/3 of the budget goes to these people. The usual chain of command is: Company > marketing > lawyers > ad agency > lawyers > design firm > photographer/illustrator - there's lots of sub categories in there. And certainly for a company this size.

476 Ace, it's 2022. You don't need their phone numbers, you just slide into their DMs. And then hopefully other things.

The new Jurassic World movie actually has a boomer character talking about sliding into DMs... I hurled a little.

477 ne of the books in the background of the Spring 2023 Balenciaga shoot features the art of Micheal
Borremans.

He did a whole 2017 “castrated toddlers” themed photo shoot.

Just an unfortunate coincidence, you can't tie together all these unrelated miscellaneous events and claim there's some sort of CONSPIRACY going on?!!!?! That's just crazy.

478 "I've worked in commercials off and on my whole life. Believe me, the client is ALWAYS aware and closely monitors the shoot. No company is ver shocked and surprised by a commercial they have paid millions for. They have reps on the set every minute of the shoot in my experience."

Yep. And even then, you think it's in the bag (as in ready to go to print) by the time it gets back up to the top after passing through dozens of checkpoints (this is a real story BTW) the CEO looks at it and says "green isn't a color found in nature" and it goes back to step 1.

479 Reason #17 to hate Euro kickball. "Offsides" is defined by where the opposing team is standing at the time.

Hockey has some rules like this as well, its basically "you can't do that because then it would be too easy" rules.

Hockey has rules against diving.
Posted by: That NLurker guy


And hockey got rid of the rule most like soccer's offsides -- the prohibited two-line pass -- ages ago. The remaining hockey offsides rule is based on where the rest of your team is, not the other team.

Other rules, like "icing," are pro-offense and pro-athleticism; you can't ditch the puck down the rink on defense, or the refs bring it right back... unless you can also out-race the offense to it.

Kick the ball out-of-bounds in soccer, and they just restart the game from there. Shoot the puck over the glass, and you go sit in the sin bin for two minutes for "delay of game."

480 Beto O'Rourke returned $1 million contribution from disgraced FTX crypto magnate

Wow

I recollect that Al Gore returned $50,000 in *cash*, after it was pointed out that such a contribution by nuns might not be appropriate, and even suspicious.

482 Soccer offsides is like a moving hockey blue line.

You cannot just post people in front of the opponent's goal all the time.

The thing that confuses people is that offsides occurs when the ball is kicked. If you are behind all the defenders when the ball is kicked, you are offside.

You can run behind the defenders while the ball is in the air.

485 In hockey, the puck must cross the blue line first.

Not so in soccer. The player can run ahead while the ball is in the air.

I didn't see that, he was at worst even with the deepest defenders and only went past them after the ball was kicked. So I guess I don't understand the rule.

491 Can Tucker claim Balenciega's scalp?

I'm pretty sure the story was out there in the internet ether but I first heard it on Tucker and it took a good half week or more of him pushing the story before it blew up to the point that the MFM couldn't ignore it.

Or was somebody else pushing also (although I don't think anybody is bigger than Tucker.)

496 " it's just kind of a dangerous time to even give credence to those kind of insane takes." So it's an insane take to say that we're experiencing... exactly what you just admitted we're experiencing? It's "insane" to say what just happened actually happened?
