If you've seen the image before and know the debate surrounding it, please try and avoid referencing any of that. I want completely unbiased answers here.
What's the first thing that comes to mind when you see this image?
It's an advertisement used by Dolce & Gabbana to sell their clothing. I saw this image posted on Facebook on a friend's wall and then got involved in a debate about it where it was posted elsewhere on Facebook.
I'm not going to share what my first interpretation is, but it was an interpretation shared by a large majority of the people on Facebook, and of the general public, considering the drama surrounding this image.
Don't go to google and research it, please. Just answer with what you think the image is portraying, and then you can google to your heart's content. :P
Most Helpful Girl
Rape and passivity/weakness.
She's an object of pleasure to men. She is being degraded, disrespected and cornered. The guy to the right of the guy pinning her down looks like he's watching in a... demeaning way. It's a condescending look.
She doesn't look very happy. I'd imagine if you were going to have sex you would be at least smiling.
And it has nothing to do with what she is wearing. There is a title covering her. You can't really tell what she's wearing. It's not a main focus point of the image. the focus points are her legs, the guy, her face, and the men surrounding her. Clothes aren't a focus point...
I find it offensive.2
