Britney Spears Wedding Photo
Todd Luger, LAc
A Britney Spears wedding photo? When my editor asked me to write
an article about Britney Spears, I thought "hmmm, this freelance
writing gig does have its downside."
Apparently this princess of pop has recently been married, so
yes indeedy there must exist a Britney Spears wedding photo. You'll
have to excuse me if I just found that out while researching this
article. Now I do surf the net and watch some late night talkshows
occasionally, so I am not unfamiliar with the cartoon image of
Miss Spears as a teen idol, sex symbol, yet virginal, vacuous,
no talent, etc. Whatever she is actually capable of in her chosen
career, I have no idea (as I would sooner be trampled by a buffalo
stampede than have ever listened to her sing). However she has
certainly been a longtime darling of gossip columnists, paparazzi
and of course, her diehard fans.
Anyway, a lot of people want to see the Britney spears wedding
photo. Way more than care about Fallujah. I am not sure why
people would want to see such a photo. But I did discover something
interesting in my quest. Most websites that purported to have
such a photo were actually peddling pornography. I was shocked
to see poor Miss Spears victimized by these unscrupulous demons.
Apparently, quite a few people search for "Britney spears
wedding photo nude." I am not sure that nude wedding
photos of Miss Spears actually exist (though my sources tell me
she would not be the first semi-celebrity to commit such an indiscretion).
But even so, why this fascination with the nude bodies of celebrities
in the first place? It really is an interesting topic that has
generated opinions ranging from outrage to scholarship.
On one hand, there is the feminist view that patriarchy inherently
seeks to diminish women in order to have power over them. Thus
media and religious images going back through history tend to
reinforce the idea of women as sex objects and not equal to men
in intellect and drive. While this may not be a conscious plot,
it certainly is an unconscious theme, it proponents argue. On
the other hand, we have the biological view that says men are
just inherently drawn to a certain female form, such as we see
in the Britney Spears wedding photo. And the young women of
childbearing years prior to having given birth is the attractor
nature evolved for this purpose, which is the reproduction of
the species. So those who affect that form (by nature or surgery,
as the case may be) get a reptilian response from the opposite
sex. And thus the search for Britney spears wedding photo.
The controversial scholar Camille Paglia makes a strong case
that the worship of female beauty is intimately bound up with
world mythologies and the development of civilization. That
myths and stereotypes about beauty evolved from real differences
between men and women that were genetically based. And that rather
than being a patriarchal conspiracy against women, it was just
another adaptive development in long evolution of human culture.
both men AND women derive power from it. Ideas and customs
survive because they serve a purpose in the continuation of the
culture. When they have truly outlived their usefulness, they
will atrophy and fade away. I would venture that, as usual, there
is at least some truth in all this conjecture. Which means that
for now, you want a Britney spears wedding photo, and in a couple
decades will be some other girl, who was just born.
