  • I would think that would be good publicity for a single actress to kiss a soldier who is laying down their life for our freedom. Plus it's a story the soldier will tell their family forever

  • I think if people saw a girl kissing one soldier they'd think they were in a relationship.
    However if they saw a girl kissing a bunch of them they'd probably think it was slutty

    There is this other infamous end of war picture
    i.dailymail.co.uk/.../...5000005DC-985_634x947.jpg

    Most people just assumed they were a couple. But they were not, they were strangers and apparently he just grabbed her and kissed. She said "‘That man was very strong. I wasn’t kissing him. He was kissing me,’" By today's standards that'd be sexual harassment and in the 40s it was hardly acceptable either. Point is a picture doesn't show the whole story and people will make different judgments and

    Now back to the picture I believe she was married that time so it slutty to kiss a man that is not your husband? Ya a little. The 40s were a lot less tame than people imagine

      They actually don't really know who the people were. Some people just claim to be like people. people claim such things all the time.

  • I think it would be a mix. People would love it, some would slam it. I love this photo though. It's hanging my living room.

  • If she was a normal girl like me and a lot of other girls it would be fine but if she was a feminist god save that poor guy's life.

  • Like, what you wrote is bizarre. I mean, it doesn't look like anyone's doing anything wrong to me. And why is your poll so polarized? I didn't vote.

  • Hard to say. Todays "standards" dont mean jack sh~t to me anyways. Todays meaning of slut just means a woman who won't sleep with YOU or a woman you hate or are jealous of anyways.

      yes i agree. it has become a word for name calling people that dont want to sleep with you instead of actually doing slutty things.

  • There is context to consider - This guys were returning from war and Hollywood had been a big supporter of the war effort - Taking in isolation you could call it publicity seeking but in context there is a lot of those pics about at that time - It would be like one of the women soccer players kissing someone in the crowd after winning a tournament.

  • Today, it would be considered as [insert anything] by everyone. If a person can complain about something, then you better believe that they will go to any extent to complain.
