Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?
I’m not sure if it is the stars who’ve gotten stupider or the paparazzi who’ve gotten more predatory (I suspect it’s a heady mix of the two), but the recent rash of upskirt shots is beyond tasteless. It’s beyond vulgar. It’s just plain wrong. And this is coming from a gal who, for the most part, enjoys seeing various exposed ladybits. But things have gotten out of hand. Way, way out of hand. Does anyone really want to see this? Sadly, the answer must be yes or the photographers would stop aiming low. But, to me, these images represent a lack of common decency. Have we really sunk to this as a culture? Have we really been reduced to bread and circuses? I feel sad, so very sad.
