As an example, not 20 minutes ago, I checked out my tumblr dashboard, while here at work, and as I scrolled down, up pops brightened animated gifs of Michael nude, walking around in his apartment in Shame. Also, there were gifs of him using the bathroom, and having sex (that was on tumblr yesterday). Thanks tumblr, you guys really "love" and respect Michael Fassbender. Not! I then go to Dlisted to check up on today's gossip and low and behold, there is an article about Jon Hamm's interview with RollingStone and he's complaining about people talking about his private part.
"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek. But it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have - a prurience. They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for fuck's sake. Lay off. I mean, it's not like I'm a fucking lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my cock, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal ... But whatever. I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite." - Jon Hamm - RollingStone
Now that you have read Jon's comments about this uncomfortable situation, for those of you (no one in particular) who see nothing wrong with posting images of Michael nude, taking advantage of his artistic expression, to gawk like out of control fools... do you see how silly and rude this is? No? I didn't think so. Basically, people will keep commenting about the bulge in Jon's pant leg, circling it, enlarging and cropping images, like they've never seen a human's penis before. And they will still continue to express complete and utter disbelief at the state of Michael's nudity. I guess like Jon said, if both he and Michael were on the opposite of the spectrum, that kind of chatter would be worse. I'm not a complete prude. Believe me, I appreciate a beautiful man too. I've made comments about how much I loooooooooooove it when Michael wears those panted on skinny jeans, and such. But I have never ever posted nude images of Michael here or at Pinterest, tumblr, twitter, and I've never circled or highlighted any of his images with the expressed interest of focusing in on his privates. Like Jon said, it's rude to do so.
I hope you all enjoyed the Fassy News Network newsletter yesterday. As usual, a couple people unsubbed from the newsletter shortly after reading the latest issue. I always find it funny how people take such deliberate steps to sign up for the newsletter, an email that is sent out once every 2-3 months, and then unsubscribe from it after getting an issue. Did I write something in it that offended you? Do please tell me. Oh well, buh bye then!
