There was a big exhibiton of Giger in Prague three or four years ago. I was his biggest fan since I've seen the Alien for the first time (I was seven years old by the way.). After seing this exhibition I've became his fan number one again. I loe that cat painting. Disturbing yes, but also... well it's great XD I so want to visit that caffee with his design inside, itĘs somewhere in Austria I suppose, it's absolutely breathtaking! Do you like him?
I have an art book of his where he talks about whatever is on his mind between prints. He's FUNNY! He wanted to talk about stupid things he did as a kid that got him in trouble with his dad, about silly gallery show shenanigans.
According to "The Naked Ape" by Desmond Morris, women are, culturally, used to being exposed and stared at. They have known that they will be the objects of everyone's gaze from very early childhood and thus have a long time to prepare.
When men are exposed and shown as objects of human gaze, it's scary since they have NOT had a lifetime to prepare for it.
Ah...That makes sense I guess...But during Roman times strong young men were the objects of ppl's eyes, in fact they made tons of art work featuring young naked men. I wonder how it ended up that women became eye candy and it stated that way
I guess that makes sense, that could also explain why they bad mouth gays in the bible, if they actually do...since I read the bible and there IS NO mention of gays in my bible. But since Romans thought the purest love was man x man love then is makes sense that it was later rejected by Judeo Christan people
Oh man, that's a big long historical term paper right there.
The Hebrews only had animosity towards homosexuals because they wanted to be different from the surrounding tribes. In most societies of the time both hetero- and homosexuality were practiced as part of worship (this is mentioned in Gilgamesh, where High Priestesses would have amazing tantric and holy sex with worshipers as a way to connect with their Gods).
The Hebrews put a bad light on sex altogether as a way to make them different. It all snowballed from there.
