Thread Name: Bob Dylan for Victoria's Secret
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan for Victoria's Secret
I agree with everything you say guest, but I just don't see the connection to the Bob Dylan commercial. I guess my interpretation comes with age.
It sounds like your daughter has suffered from some sort of harrassement, and if that is the case I am truly sorry. I do know women who have suffered the same injustice and it can not be tolerated.
Perhaps it is because I a male, or perhaps there is something with the geographic and cultural differences of our situation, but I also know that the situation that you describe is not necessarily the "norm" everywhere. People can celebrate beauty and sexuality without infringing on others. I do not consider the Dylan commercial to be "pornography", nor do I think that the woman is being vicitimized. While I do respect the opinion that you share with your daughter, I do think there has to be a line drawn on what is appropriate and what is inappropriate.
