    Is that snow on the ground?  Jeepers!  Whatever they paid the model it wasn’t enough.

    The article says that they are in prison because of singing a song, but iirc there was actually more to it than that like criminal mischief type stuff.

      The “criminal mischief” was the excuse, and none of it was sufficient to warrant a gulag.  They’re there because they dared to dislike Russian politicians.

    Who’s the ad agency for it, Blue Ant?

     I say it’s both, appropriate and appropriation.

    I’m all for a revolution I can dance to. But a free pussy riot? Hmmm.

    Advertising most often blows chunks of awful, but this kicks arse.

    That sign reminds me of the punctuation guide “Eats, Shoots and Leaves”.

    Blush does not understand the band Pussy Riot!’s message. By
    reading the trial transcripts found in PUSSY RIOT!: A PUNK PRAYER FOR FREEDOM
    (Feminist Press 2013)–the only book published on the movement–or following
    the movement in the news, you would see that Pussy Riot’s outfits of balaclavas
    and colored dresses aim to desexualize the female body. Instead of being
    “hot bods” or “pretty faces” they members of Pussy Riot!
    represent themselves through simple colored dresses, face masks, and their
    lyrics. Representing their campaign through sexuality, not to mention expensive
    high-end corporate merchandise, completely goes against their radical
    goals.  Frankly, seeing a woman almost
    naked but for a mask brings to mind ideas of kidnapping and S&M more than
    feminism. Just because a model put on a baklava does not mean she represents
    the Pussy Riot! cause. By wearing a baklava you can believe yourself to be a
    ‘Pussy Riot! supporter’, but it means nothing if you do not continue to then
    support the women–not for their aesthetic beauty or what they wear, but for
    what they are shouting and demonstrating! Stop commodifying Pussy Riot! and
    start actually understanding their message!
