Danish Fishing Magazine In Trouble For Publishing Insane Fish Porn…Let’s Take A Look! (NSFW)

fishing

Well, this is the stuff of nightmares.

Danish fishing magazine Fisk & Fri has come under fire for publishing a series of bizarre pin-ups called “Fish Girls,” most of which show attractive naked ladies cavorting with the fresh cadavers of fish that recently murdered for sport. Is this what Carol J. Adams was talking about in The Sexual Politics Of Meat?

“There is such misogyny in these pictures,” says blogger Tomas Gunnarsson. “I’m thinking primarily of the images in which a woman is a fish that has teeth around her nipple and when a girl is playing dead in the water.”

As a vegan, I am not particularly horrified, at least, not any more than I already am that people kill animals for fun. (Yes, I count preferring the taste of animal protein to plant protein as “fun.”) As a feminist, I am not particularly horrified either, as it’s not news to me that we live in a society in which men like to objectify naked women. (I have even utilized this fact to make money.) Of course, I find the more violent images distasteful, and believe they’re worth analyzing from a systemic, feminist perspective, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I think they are a cut and dry example for something that’s Bad For Women.

Am I defending this fish porn? Heavens no. I’m just saying that this fish porn is the inevitable byproduct of a society that is flesh-hungry in more ways than one. The fish porn is us. Gaze upon it and weep. (NSFW, obviously!)

    So I guess it’s not sexist that my buddy and I see no naked women, climbing up the side of a waterfall to our space in the Adirondacks to get to the pool that houses some very nice wild trout? Okay now Jamie, please close your eyes to the visual.

    “Yes, I count preferring the taste of animal protein to plant protein as “fun.””

    *insert the sound of sad trombone here*
    I think that having a choice of eating only the foods that you prefer is “fun”.

      My point exactly.

      No, you didn’t understand me. You live in a developed country, where you have an ability to buy only the food you like – organic, no meat, etc. I don’t think you’ve ever been in a situation where you had no money for weeks and only canned meat to eat (way past its shelf life, too). I have. I often can’t choose what to get for myself, I have to buy the cheapest things because otherwise, I’ll starve. Or I can go with expensive vegetarian foods, but then I’ll be off my medication, and die. I don’t like using this word, but you have a privilege that you assume other people have too. So sorry, but sometimes we don’t get to eat meat for “fun”, we do it because it’s what is available to us.

      I am clearly not talking about you, but people who eat meat not because they will die if they don’t, but because it’s tasty.

    I don’t agree with trophy fishing. But regular fishing and boobies are A- OK. Go, ladies!

    The line between artistic nude photos and pornography is blurry. These photos are in the Twilight Zone between the two. I didn’t see this as sexist, as much as it was hilarious. One concern I have about feminism is it sometimes seems humourless. As a man, I’m not able critique feminist ideas without being viewed negatively. It’s literally the ad hominem argument. however, i do find more and more women voicing protest against some of its ideas. A closed mind is akin to a dead mind, regardless of gender.

      These people all believe their weenies come from heaven and that this gives them some sanctified right to be divine pricks while passing their collection plate at gunpoint for the gods of communism (themselves).

      Chaos is the only thing that is fair.
