ArgusRun: Here's what's creepy.  When you look at a good number of them, they look like prom photos.   Like they're a couple.  And you go, okay, cute couple.  Or poor kids, prom photos are so awkward.

Then you remember that this is father and daughter, and it suddenly feels dirty.


Pretty much this.  Even as an amateur portraitist, I could tell you that this was a bad way to pose father and teenage daughter.  These would work for a wedding situation, with bride and groom.  Not to much father-daughter.

But then, he also had some issues with exposure, with people's skin tones so blown out that you can't even see their legs against the sand, so I suppose posing might be the least of his technical issues.

Tom_Slick: sonofslacker: Tom_Slick: Evil Mackerel: jayhawk88: Damn, every one of those girls looks like they're in a hostage situation. Which I guess probably isn't too far from the truth...

They are and on many levels.

Yup, and the second they are out of the house.....

CSB; I have 2 coworkers with college age daughters, one's a religious nut job, one's a decent guy with hippie leanings,  guess which one's daughter came home after her freshman year pregnant, covered in tats, and with 2 arrests for possession.

Is this a trick question? It's the hippie one, amiright?

The funny thing is I've known the hippie guy for since his kids were born (we've been bouncing around the  same industry)  you would expect his kids to be like him and his wife, pot smoking party animals.  Nope his teenage daughters are both level headed responsible young people.


Ha, this hits close to home. We were closer to the hippie stereotype then the religious nut job when our kids were born. They both are fairly responsible young people now and have told me to turn the music down more than once.

BarryTheMasterOfSandwich: Why are religious people so obsessed with sex?


Because at the same time someone was writing down what Jesus was saying, another guy was in the back ground putting the trap door on the coffin he was preparing for Jesus.. this was rather distracting as Jesus was attempting to talk over this guy and his hammering.. so goes the story, and I quote the original text of the bible entry here..

"and Jesus said to the people, Hey! quit farking around!..."

through poor translation, the correlation of sex and marriage was created.
 
2014-05-03 09:59:13 AM  

ArgusRun: Once they are old enough to talk, you should be happy, loving and joyful with your kids. Not this.


Or, if the dads looked exhausted and totally overwhelmed, they would at least get some sympathy from other parents.

I think Barry was referring to the fact that they feel the need to do these elaborate ceremonies and celebrations of these girls promising to not have sex until the magical moment that God says it's ok.  You know, for Jesus and stuff.

Conservatives are obsessed with controlling their daughter's sexual activities and appetites, what consenting adults are doing in their bedrooms/kitchens/garages/sex dungeons, and OMG the gays are trying to get married!  They are far more concerned about sex than anyone else.

Son of Thunder: corronchilejano: I don't see why this is creepy.
(Not that I aprove of the concept)

Me either. We've had enough "bad family photos" threads around here that these ones barely rate a flicker on my creepometer.

It's what perception researchers call top-down processing. Perception is influenced by prior expectations, attitudes, and situational cues. So we start off with the "scary" tag and subby's "creepy" headline, follow it up with TFA's "creepy" headline, and TFA itself loading the reader up with the message that we will now look at creepy Christians looking creepy while at this creepy Christian thing because they're creepy, it's not surprising that a collection of blandly-awkward father-daughter pictures make some farkers say "wow, that's creepy".

The Force can have a strong influence on the weak minded.


I DNRTFA and found it farking creepy. I've never even taken a picture like that with my wife.

So, you're saying there's nothing inappropriate about pulling your daughter's ass into your groin by her hips while nuzzling into her hair?

You're right, maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

hateful of anything that smacks of Christianity.

 These pics don't strike me as "creepy". Throw mom in there and you have a family portrait.

You're right in that one cannot project sex into a situation that is already explicitly about sex.

catmandu: I love how these balls reinforce the idea of girls as Dad'd property until they become hubby's property and are the only ones required to remain "pure". No Moms and sons?

The photos are a bit creepy because they look too much like date photos, not father-daughter fun dance photos.


I hate this crap. "Your poon belongs to me until I marry you off and transfer poon ownership rights to your husband." Ack.

That was my impression, too. They should be smiling, I would think. Geez, your daughter's not gonna fark* before marriage? That ought to be something to be happy about.

On the photographers site he says that the daughters have to choose this not the fathers.

Dad: honey at church they are going to be having a purity ball. I just wanted to let you know in case you did not want to burn eternally in a lake of fire for having intercourse before marriage.

Daughter: ok dad thank for telling me.

Dad: i just figured since you are still pure we might want to think about preserving your virginity. You are still a virgin right?

Daughter: Yes dad

Dad: So do you want to go to the ball remain a virgin, or burn eternally in a lake of fire since you are not a virgin anymore?

Daughter: I guess we can go to the ball.

Dad: Great I marked us down for two. What size wedding dress do you wear?

So you're going to tell me Jesus approved of this kind of action, huh. I'm an atheist, but, I was raised Catholic and they failed to mention this part.  Maybe something he said during the Sermon on the Mount, "Go ahead and pork your daughters!  I recommend you start when they're 13, but hey, it's your call.  Anybody want some loaves and fishes?"

/I seemed to have read somewhere, that in ancient Roman culture, dad broke in the daughter and mom had broke in the son.  I only saw this mentioned in one place and I can't remember where, it was a long time ago.  Maybe the 70's.  Could have been a well respected journal like Penthouse Letters.  I was in an "altered state" for most of the 70's.
 
2014-05-03 10:11:13 AM  
Ye gods... I've rarely seen more creepy pictures, and that's saying something. I don't think even /b/ could come up with more farked up shiat.

Now I mean, I love my daughter. She's got nearly as much of an invective filled vocabulary as I do, and her big dream in life is to be the person who discovers what dark matter and dark energy really are (and frankly, considering her determination and skill at math / physics at the young age of 14, I have little doubt she may just do it). But I'd be fooling myself if I thought my making her sign some silly piece of paper would keep her from bedding some boy when she decides it's time. Sure, I educate her, sure we've had very frank discussions, and no I don't exactly make it all that easy for her to get a chance to do anything at this age. But when she finally does, I'd like to think she'll do it safely, without guilt or fear, or this barbaric, medieval concept that it makes her "dirty" or "impure".

Nobody has mentioned the flip-side of Purity Balls.

Quinceañera

The generally quite religious and Catholic Hispanic culture actually celebrates a fifteen year old becoming a Woman and being 'open for business'.

This reinforces my belief that Purity Balls are just an extension of the Anglo trend to want to control women at all times. It isn't about God. It is part of this weird system that they try to impose on the nation in which women are possessions - to be passed from one man to another - from birth to grave. Suffrage, careers, education, and birth control are other fronts on their struggle to control women.
