Photographer criticised over image where females have their mouths taped up

On Sunday, Louisana woman Hannah Hawkes, who calls herself a “newly established, local photographer”, posted a series images from a family Christmas shoot on her Facebook page.

Most of the shots were lovely, showing a mother, father and their three children smiling. But in one of the images, the mother and two daughters wore bright green duct covering their mouths and the father held a sign saying ‘Peace on Earth’. Their son’s mouth was duct tape-free.

The image was shared on Reddit yesterday and was slammed on social media.

“I can’t believe this sort of offensive photography is tolerated in our society. Poorly composed, overexposed, uncreative. Your photography is bad, and you should feel bad,” wrote one user on Ms Hawkes’ Facebook page.

Another said: “I can’t believe a female photographer would take part in something so demeaning and damaging to women and girls. Women being deprived of their voices by men is no laughing matter. It wasn’t cute. It wasn’t humorous. It was horrifying.”

Ms Hawkes defended her photo on her Facebook page, after the image was removed by Facebook. “I have been called every name in the book, and have received some very hateful and vulgar comments and messages,” she wrote.

“I would like to say that as a female I do NOT and have never promoted violence to women! I do not support abuse, or the degradation of women.

“My controversial photo was taken by request by the family, and was in no way meant to promote abuse. This photo was taken with humour in mind, and was meant as a comical Christmas photo. I personally know this family, and have known them for many years.

“They are not abusive to their children in any shape or form. Also, I would like to add that no one was harmed during the process.”

You will think like we do, or you will be silenced! But we think the RIGHT way! Not like those others who would silence you for thinking the WRONG way!

Liberal speech codes like saying MERRY CHRISTMAS instead of HAPPY HOLIDAY or using words some whining little liberal fears might offend them

I think the photographer got it right. The only noise is coming from feminists so that was a bullseye hit proving the point. If the feminazis would just shut up then society would be in a much happier space for no loss.

This is simply further proof for my theory.
In the same sense that sickle-cell anemia makes one virtually immune to malaria, liberals also experience a genetic "trade-off".
By gaining the ability to "GroupThink" and "DoubleThink", they lose the ability to comprehend humor, satire or sarcasm.
