cretinbob: That is creepy as fark


Creepier still when you learn how many of them end up selling sex to survive. A great majority of runaways, end up selling their bodies to survive. The boys tend to split between near slave labor, crime, and selling sex. The girls almost always end up selling sex. The USA has a shiat social safety net where kids who run away are near helpless and will starve or freeze without selling their bodies.

That's part of what made it creepy. Those are well posed pictures.

I don't get the message. Also, not only staged, but perfect makeup on the girls.

Wtf is that?  Some kind of fake viral clothing ad campaign?

"Girls swim in a sun-dappled watering hole - paying no mind to the camera "

Yeah maybe because they're covered in leaches?

yea...no long term runaway looks like that.
everyone in those pics looks like at LEAST an amateur model.
posed with perfect lighting.

Hey now.  It may be staged but it is supposed to make you think of the plight of model-pretty white girls.

But aren't we all covered in leaches, metaphorically speaking?

Yeah, none of those girls pictured were actual runaways.

I've known girls and women in desperate situations, runaways from home, or trying to get out of abusive relationships. My wife and I have helped a few over the years.

Snapping staged pictures of models and calling them runaways, writing strange prose about the scene, is just creepy as fark and wrong.

Roaming bands of cougars (called a pride) out in search of prey is far more dangerous.

We are all covered in leeches, literally speaking.  I hope.  It's aspirational, anyway.

A quick background of the photographer shows she seems to enjoy photographing young girls.

Like, a whole lot.
 
2020-05-12 3:18:51 PM  
I find this extra creepy because one of those girls is a dead ringer for Mrs tontine's younger sister. The timeline and location fit for when she was a runaway. She had no happy romantic stories though.

Marcos P: Clean feet = not homeless


Not only that but in a couple of those closer photos, it looks like some of the girls have farking nail work done.

Photographer: "Ok, I need you girls to spread out around this drainage.  Act like you are coming out of the culvert after having been hidden within."
Model #1: "Can I not touch the concrete, I just had my nails done yesterday."
Model #2: "Same here but this morning!."
Model #3: "Yeah, and besides, it's icky enough around here!"
Photographer: "Look, some of you are going to have to get up there." (sigh) "Ok, look, for those of you who get up on the culvert I'll pay for an afternoon at Ahn Tran's salon."
All Models: "Oh hell yeah." "Ow!" "Stop shoving!" "Out of my way." "Fark that's awesome, move!"
Photographer: "God damn it!  You can't all be up there!  Fine, I'll pay Ahn's for everyone, just, you, you and you and you, get the fark down and spread out!"

First, this is the worst, what is going on here with these girls?

Second, this just got real for me. This just brought up sad memories because my friend Jon Simanton hosted a Girls Gone Wild Island edition.
Jon was a little person.
I once got into a bar fight because some jerks were making fun of his size.  That night was the only time I ever saw Jon get mad.
My friend Verne Troyer lived with Jon when he came to California to get into movies, they were my friends and we spent years together.
The first time I met Verne he asked me to pick him up and put him on a bar stool, he said he had to get a better view of the girls. So I picked up a grown man and placed him on the stool, even then he was still shorter than me. One of the most memorable/bizarre days in my life.

Now unfortunately they have both died.
RIP my friends, Jon and Verne

A better way to "celebrate" the 20th anniversary, would be to use twitter, fakebook, instagram etc and
find out how many of them ARE STILL ALIVE.

Yeah, this looks more like something that might be used to recruit girls from the relative safety of their families to a situation where they can be readily exploited. Creepy...
