File Under Weird Oedipal Shit: Sean Lennon as Yoko

September 2nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Freudian analysts could have a field day with this Terry Richardson shot taken from the Fall/Winter 2009-2010 issue of French mag Purple Fashion, which has Sean Lennon posing as his mother Yoko in a re-creation of that famous Rolling Stone cover of his parents:

To review: Sean is posing as his mother Yoko…in a re-creation of an intimate moment between his parents…captured in one of the most iconic rock portraits of all time…that was taken on the same day his father was murdered.

Hmm. Sounds a little bit like Oedipus Rex updated as an arty porno.

I don’t understand how my parents–who are freakin’ GENIUSES–can’t operate their computers, cannot so much as comprehend that the Internet is not a “place,” and email is not a thing that you “go to.” They are voting Obama and could not even dream of joining Facebook to write that fact in their respective status updates. I’d call it their one flaw, but they’d probably disown me, so instead I’ll just say they’re perfect! (Respeck, Moms! Hi!)

How is that the case, yet the also-older, ignorant half-broken simple Asian minds behind Family Keepers, a Chinese god-fearin’ conservative group, somehow managed to drum enough half-wits to create a whole five minutes of web content in support of Proposition 8? HOW?

We’ll say it yet again: Prop 8 is a disgusting, insecure, unfair resolution to the problems held deep by an ignorant sub-population crippled by fear.

And let us add: Fucktarded propaganda and a completely invalid slippery-slope mentality…

First the gays, then Oedipus!
First the gays, then two butlers and a (gasp) Black man!?!

First the gays, then Billy Ray and Miley!!!!

…just make this weird, aggressive, discriminatory stance all the more offensive.

Maybe it’s not always a good thing when Asians get politically involved.

Feel free to tell them so:

Thanks, Jack!
