Please understand, I expressed a petpeeve, not to be taken as a suggestion for updating the rule book on allowable photos.crfriend wrote: ↑Sat Dec 26, 2020 1:51 amThere's a reason why there is no editorial stance here on how photographs are composed/framed/altered -- and that's to keep everyone's personal comfort-level where it needs to be. And I'm not about to change that stance, because I see no compelling need to. To each his own. Finis.
Personally, I like full-frame shots, but I can understand why some are reticent to post them. So things slide.
But I can't help it, whenever I see someone who's head is blurred out, I can't help but feel as though the person in question is guilty of something.
I mean, especially those who hide their faces online, yet still wear skirts openly in public. Odds are favorable the person has been photographed many times, and is likely been posted online anyway.
I suppose this sort of ties into the "mask thread" whereas people may find it easier to wear skirts in public while wearing a mask.
However, unlike BobM's implication, while wearing a mask for health related reasons isn't "living your life in fear", doing so to avoid detection, is.
Rosie the rivetor wasn't ashamed to live in a man's world. (yes I know she's a cartoon, but the women who followed in her footsteps weren't) Frankly my feminine side is a source of great pride for me, I can't imagine wanting to hide it...
I honestly don't see how femininity got paired with weakness. Most women I know are tough as nails and sharp as a tack.
