I have a lot to write about but this post came across on GFY and was so well said that I had to get it out to my readers. This guy hits the nail on the head.
Obviously it passed.
People don’t care about “pornographers” and think they are assholes… so any campaign like those I saw by “pornographers” was little more than telling people “do the opposite of what we say and want because as you know, we are asshole… OH! and P.S. Oprah Winfrey, Steve Hirsch has an offer for you to do a bukkake scene” – That’s all people read. You are a bunch of dickheads with zero credibility in the eyes of the public. You are scum. You are predators and you are losers. To the public, you are still just a bunch of pimps with gold teeth, unbuttoned shirts, hairy chests preying on runaway teens. Every fucking idiot that got behind the idea to make an appeal on behalf of the industry should be fired from their jobs immediately.
Then there was the fact that there was no single, simple message. “Hope and Change” etc. It was a bunch of unbelievable and nonsensical scare tactics showing people in biohazard suits and direct appeals to consumers (people who could care less) with random, inconsistent messages. Really dipshits? Basic marketing 101. You need a single, simple, clear message that not only resonates with and appeals to the customer but that is instantly credible and believable. You all failed miserably in that department, being the fragmented, individualist, antisocial group of shits that you are. What a shocker.
The issue at hand is simple.
You will not win an argument against safety unless you can prove the proposed measure “for” is dangerous. End of story. This is how it works in the real world. This is why we have warnings on hair dryers not to use them while standing in the shower. Get it? There is no argument against warning people and only arguments for, hence the warning.
This business is so full of ineptitude and stupidity, that its difficult at times to even decide where to begin in pointing it out.
One a final note… Uhm…. really? You honestly think that there should be no rules and regulations regarding the spread of contagious and deadly disease in the work place? What fucking planet are you living on where you don’t see the government eventually getting involved? Testing is extremely flawed. In what other industry does this happen where safety issues aren’t regulated? You can’t cook in a kitchen without a hair net… but it should be ok to run around spraying HIV, Hepatitis and everything else all over each others faces? There is no word that describes how retarded you are to think thats how it should be. In fact, a new word will need to be invented to describe the level of stupidity for most of the morons in this biz.
Every single argument you fucking morons have is a losing argument. Testing is flawed. People fake tests/cheat. Models escort. Disease is rampant. Disease affects everyone.. not just the people on the film set. … and you people are again, proving to the public why you are just a bunch of assholes that should never be trusted or believed and should remain on the fringe.
