      Irrespective of Jennifer Lawrence’s feelings of exploitation and violation, the unspoken reality is she is a complicit member of the very generation that has normalized digital nakedness. She was not victimized by paparazzi aiming a long lens at her bedroom or into her vacation villa. She shot a selfie and pressed “send.” Are we to now reprimand those who can’t resist or are simply intrigued to see what the fuss is all about…? http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2014/09/nsfw-new-jennifer-lawrence-naked-photos-leaked-4chan/

      One wonders in a profession where one’s currency is a an amalgamation of their image who actually and necessarily owns the right to such intangibles? Granted the hackers should be fully persecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but why should those forums, websites and even readers be punished for daring to comment, observe and look at images as long as they propagate a discussion of cultural dialectics? Even if those dialectics are ones that unfortunately also involve a quotient of men who are intent on misogynistic tendencies and more than happy to violate one’s presumption of privacy…Can an idea/image really be a sex crime too? Even a sexist idea? http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2014/10/jennifer-lawrence-nude-sex-crime-law-needs-change/

      People like the kids above actually think they’re being clever. One wonders how racist they really are, as such things are so funny to them and to be readily dismissed. In fact so normal have such representations become in their communities, they don’t see any problem whatsoever with sharing these photos online. Because, as they would argue, it’s “just a joke.”  Which raises the question how did such distorted views become normalized in the first place….? http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2014/01/asu-fraternity-tau-kappa-epsilon-suspended-hideous-mlk-day-party/

      At the end of the day, Jacqueline Bisset like all of us is human and branding her a tizzy because she was caught off guard is hardly doing her a service. She’s been around for a long time, is a full on working actress even at the age of 69, who was actually surprised this time round she got to win an award after being passed over so many other times.  Which draws the questions why do we hold Hollywood icons to such nearly impossible standards and allow them to be vulnerable from time to time or is that only allowed on screen…..? http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2014/01/jacqueline-bisset-golden-globes-acceptance-speech-gave-hangover/

      So often marriage is about what each partner can exact from the other that they can not necessarily exact from themselves, but then there too comes a time when if both parties are willing to listen to each other and agree to carry each other’s burdens, aspirations and struggles that love can move forward. The question then might be at what point do we as partners lose sight of our partners needs and make our own paramount? A question each partner from time to time come to wonder about the other… http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2013/11/blogger-seth-adam-smith-tells-why-marriage-isnt-for-you/

      Why didn’t Prosecutor Rice just push the case forward, he had enough evidence, confessions and even the support of the the victim herself who wanted to see the case go forward (something his office denies, but why?), who at all times cooperated with his office. Why would Rice just back off like that? Who was he protecting, bowing to, apologizing for? Did he just think the girl asked for it, was sleazy cause she sneaked out to get to the party? Did she really change her story or fail to cooperate as his office insists? Of course the question now is, is there enough political will to get the case re opened especially now that Lt gov Kinder wants a grand jury and with anonymous breathing down everyone’s neck? Then again why did it even have to resort to this in the first place….? So much for justice for all….. http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2013/10/will-daisy-coleman-rape-case-re-opened/

      So the question one ought to ask is why is this drug even just now making it onto the shores of the US when it has been so prevalent in Europe and Russia for so long? Is that to say there is a migration to such synthetic highs? And why would any user take on this drug knowing full well of the detrimental risks associated with this particular drug use? Or can we say that with most illicit drugs which come with their own drawbacks….? http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2013/09/krokodil-flesh-eating-drug-now-reported-us-graphic-video/

      Perhaps one can rightly argue that the moment George Zimmerman gave pursuit to Trayvon Martin despite 911 pleas not to he became the aggressor but nevertheless what couldn’t be proved was Zimmerman legitimately fearing for his life when an ensuing struggle eventually took place? Perhaps Trayvon Martin was legitimately reacting to what he perceived as a threat and sought to save his own life when he reacted to Zimmerman? Would the verdict have been different had it been a white boy killed instead? Who can be sure but the African American community perhaps senses blood on their watch and simply sought to expose the prejudice that they are forced to deal with in day to day life. Then perhaps it could all boil down to Zimmerman getting way over his head and in the end resorting to lethal force when he suddenly realized he picked the wrong action fight to contend with….? http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2013/07/george-zimmerman-not-guilty-did-the-jury-get-it-right/

      On one hand one can see June is endeared to her toaster, reluctant to just pick it up and smash it on the floor, reluctant to believe that it doesn’t love her as much as she loves it. Yet on the other hand she’s taunted and bears a serious grudge against it for refusing to behave and sing savory lullabies to her. http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2012/11/the-haunted-satanic-toaster-will-make-you-weep-too/

      If David Petraeus was asked to leave his office because he had actually breached ethics, laws and compromised national security that would be one thing, but it seems the real pickle in this messy salad is the fact that it suddenly occurred to someone high up that one day the public would come looking for answers as to the conduct of the US and major operatives in its dealings and that maybe rather than risk facing real examination and a reigning in of its powers it merely chose to conveniently push its token Queen bee out of the beehive reasoning that they would be taking out the incriminating fingerprints with them out the front door. Which raises the awkward question will the public dare come looking for answers anyway….? http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2012/11/paula-broadwells-emails-to-jill-kelley-revealed-very-catty-indeed/
