"Umm, maybe the problem is with sweet, oblivious white girls taking pictures next to graffiti walls they have never even looked at before their pics were taken...."

Top-rated comment on a Buzzfeed article titled "This Teen Just Discovered 'A Big Ass Penis' In Her Widely Shared Senior Photo/'Girl me too.'"

Why do these commenters blame the performer for what unknown perverts did to the set the decoration? Envy of the cute by the not so cute.

For some strange reason US Marines like to draw penises on bathroom walls. Maximilian Uriarte, who draws the immensely popular Marine comic strip "Terminal Lance," has noted the phenomenon in several of his strips.

The fact that she is white is key.

In the future, everybody will be ridiculed for fifteen minutes, unless their politics are well known to be pristine left.

What's an ass penis?

I hope the 'stupid' tag is for the top-rated comment. If so, funny.

What's with the "white" reference? Should we assume no non-white girls ever do this? Or that only when "white" girls do it it deserves ridicule, because they're appropriating non-white graffiti culture?

The bigger question to me is why anyone would want to take a picture in front of a desecrated wall. If you don't want a plain background, there's plenty of options that don't scream "some tool scribbled spray paint all over this place."

She made it to her senior year of high school without knowing what a penis looks like? I'm amazed.

Big Mike said...

I didn't know that happened anymore.

Why would anyone pose for a photo in front of obnoxious graffiti when they could have tree branches sticking out of their heads? I don't get it.

You're overthinking this. The implication is that white people are stupid, and when the ghetto fucks them over, it serves them right. In ghetto culture, anyone who has anything he cannot defend deserves to have it taken away.

It's also that "white" always deserves ridicule or hatred, because of some original sin. "Whites" in this sense can never win, and must eternally supplicate and even then won't win.

Ignore nonwhite culture? Clearly a white imperialist! Celebrate nonwhite culture? Now it's cultural appropriation!

Surely there is some ground between white nationalism and white self-hatred, even if the racialist left will not concede that.

In my Junior year of High School I suffered a head injury while practicing a Cheerleading Stunt. I saw a tunnel of White Light, and a naked man with a long beard beckoned me to come towards him, then I woke up. Shit like that happens: Cheerleading is Hard Core, people…

Anyway, after the accident I have a disembodied spectral penis that follows me around. Sometimes it is right behind me, sometimes it floats over my head. No one else can see it, they think I must have suffered a brain injury or something, but it's there, Honest to God…

I even see it in photographs of myself, but people just say it is some reflection of light or a shadow or something, but it's definitely a penis: it is easy to see when you know what you are looking for...

I finally went to a Psychic Palm Reader to prove I wasn't crazy, and she saw it! What a relief! She ran her fingers along my hand and was able to talk to the penis and everything…!

It turns out the penis belonged to a young boy named Seamus who died in 1887. He was killed in a mine explosion, and all they found left of him was his penis. Somehow he saw me in the White Tunnel of Light, and now he follows me wherever I go…

Every once in awhile Seamus bumps his disembodied spectral penis against my ass, and I have to tell him 'No, Seamus! Stop that!', but usually he keeps a respectful distance. The Truth is, I feel sorry for the guy, but it gets awkward, always having his penis around. Like, when I'm in the bathroom peeing I don't want to be looking at a disembodied spectral penis floating in front of me, okay…?

The doctors say they can give me drugs to make the penis go away, but I don't want them: I feel like if I make Seamus disappear it would be like I killed him all over again, and I don't think I can live with that: he can't help it if he is only a penis…

I asked the Psychic Palm Reader if I ever would be able to talk to Seamus, and she said it would certainly be possible, my mind would just need to be in the right place. She also said I should be naked, I don't know why, she just said that…

I worry that some day I will have a boyfriend and I'll have to explain to him about Seamus. I guess if it is meant to be, he'll understand. I just hope Seamus will understand, too…

I am Laslo.

I think cute girls look cuter when posing against an ugly backdrop. Something to do with contrasts......I think Madonna is taking notes, and something like this will appear in her next video l. Won't work. Madonna looks trashier than graffiti. Might work for Taylor Swift.

Back in my day a young girl wouldn't have been expected to recognize a penis. She would learn about it on her wedding night. Or maybe not, if the lights were turned off.

It may be related to an ass cracker. C.f., Althouse, Zimmerman trial.

Just wink and people will think you did it on purpose but no one can prove anything.

My wife and I have debated the innate hilarity of the hastily scrawled cock-n-balls in public places, usually ending with her rolling her eyes & lamenting her marriage to a guy in his 40s with the sense of hummor of a 12 year old.
A few years back we took a vacation to Italy. While seeing the expected sights, we encountered dick graffiti at the colloseum and amongst the ruins of Pompeii (plenty of others, too. Seems Italy has always been crawling with dicks).
I remember the thrill of vindication upon first seeing one. "See, I told you!! I'm part of a tradition that goes back thousands of years!"
