So, if you are a lolita, chances are you have seen a petition circulating around about a poster being used for a documentary about pedophilia and the assumptions made about it( you have probably seen it 100 times like I have). I am tired of it, especially because people aren't even bothering to look at the statement issued by the movie "There is a lot of conversy surrounding the film posters. The documentary does not offend Lolita. Wild assumptions about what pedophilia is or isn’t is why the documentary was made in the first place." Personally, I think the only person who has something to say is the model in the photo- and if they used her image without permission. Otherwise- this is no more detrimental to lolita than 4chan or Get Off EGL or Lolita Secrets. For one, the girl looks amazing, and not provocative at all (despite what the petitions say) and secondly, there have always been perverts associated with lolita. We all know this- it is a fetish with some people- as much as we don't mean it to be. There will always be men who find it attractive or think it's perverted or whatever for whatever reasons outside of our own understanding of the fashion. Lolita can look like you are purposefully dressing like a little girl- this movie is about the stereotypes and assumptions of pedophilia- seems like a good image representation to me. This movie doesn't seem to be about lolita or really mention it all- and it looks like a very well done and informative movie that I would actually want to see.
Is lolita supposed to be sexy- no. Do some people see it as sexy?- yes. No matter how much we rant about the fashion being modest and covered up, some people will still see it as sexy. I don't think that seeing the picture will make people think that lolitas are all about attracting pedophiles because WHO THE HELL WOULD WANT THAT? I think we should have asked to post an informative link to what lolita is instead of getting all angry and in their faces. We could have had a chance to share what lolita is with a whole bunch of people. Anyway- the whole thing makes me irritated and annoyed- and I feel like the info on the petition post is over dramatic.
And frankly, anyone who looks at lolita and says "OMG those girls are all about attracting pedophiles and are perverts and whores" is a complete and utter fucking moron and I don't want them anywhere near me in the lolita community. They can stay blissful in their giant bubble of ignorance and stay the hell away from me.
