Huh, or actresses.

Still, all in all, pretty creepy looking.

So this is....

1. Remove teeth
2. ????
3. Profit!

I'm gonna guess 2 is "blowjobs" but not sure.

So you know how when people read a post about puppies saving kitties from floods or dads standing up for their homosexual sons to jerks in small towns they suddenly experience focused rainstorms that make it look like tears appear on their cheeks?

This site is like that, except with vomit.

I guess all of us reach a certain point in our lives where we encounter some thing that makes us feel old and cranky and vaguely resentful of youth culture, something that causes the first blades of grass to sprout up on the proverbial lawn which we will be demanding kids to get off of for the remainder of our days. For me, that thing is Tumblr.

posted by royalsong at 10:38 AM on March 28, 2013


This is weird to me the way that "beautiful women some dude bolted exposed robot bits onto with PhotoShop" was weird to me. Sometimes repetition has comedic value. Sometimes repetition is nauseating.

The author is all, "THIS TUMBLR IS NOT INTENDED TO OFFEND" and I'm all, "I'm not offended. I'm troubled. I'm not sure why you did this, and I'm not convinced this comes from a good place."

This being the Internet, though, and the author being largely free to pursue whatever creepy pursuit they care to, I don't know if there's much more to say than that.

Is this a dude creepily visualizing his fantasy of destroying women's bodies for oral sex domination purposes? Or is this an anti-beauty rebel defiantly drilling away at our culture's femininity myths?

Oh right, no, it is just tumblr. The sum of its politics is: tumblr. Tumblr is like this. Tumblr is always like this.

(this no teeth thing is not nearly as bad as the one with disembodied heads being "served" on a silver platter being held by their headless bodies)

I feel like if you mix this tumblr with this tumblr something very, very bad will happen to the world.
posted by phunniemee at 11:00 AM on March 28, 2013 [5 favorites]


1) The point of tumblr is to do something (anything) over and over, more than one would expect, enough to get people to linger

2) If there is a point it's that gosh actresses flash their teeth a lot and their teeth are important to the overall perception of beauty. Even this is overthinking it. Talking about destroying their bodies or oral sex or handwringing about whether it comes from a "good place" is definitely overthinking it.

All that said it's not that funny or interesting, it's also just not that "troubling"

What anazgnos said. It’s just trying to get attention, there is no meaning. The Internet is like a bunch of children, some of them are just annoying. Of course, most of our culture is leaning that way...

I am sure that somewhere out there is a tumblr with added teeth. But I'm not going to search for it.

Not flossing doesn't cause you to lose all your teeth. The "not flossing" version of this would be ActressesWithShaneMacGowansTeeth.

No, I am not searching for that and if anyone happens to find it then please, for the love of God, keep it to yourself.

i don't know.

I know it's supposed to be funny and all and 2002 me would have had a good laugh, but I think that if you're just going to focus on the women, you're just contributing to the whole objectification thing where women are only valued for their physical beauty, so by taking away their beauty, you devalue them.

i guess it would have been more acceptable to me if it was actresses and actors without teeth.

sorry for being a party pooper. I'll eat my plate of beans in the other room

I looked at two and started feel creepy as hell. This kind of crap is a pretty slippery slope towards something that I can't even imagine, both for the people that would post photos like that and people that would be viewing them.

I had the sensation that it was some kind of anti-meth campaign ad.
posted by Atreides at 12:01 PM on March 28, 2013


If I were a bettin' man, I'd say the author's intent begins and ends with "this looks weird and attention grabbing and made me chuckle and the Photoshopping takes like two minutes per picture, Tumblr here I come!" and beanplating towards social commentary, misogyny, the context of the genre of single-serving quick'n'dirty Photoshop Tumblrs, etc takes you far over the horizon from the "heh, this looks fucked up" motivator.

Forget it, Jake, it's Tumblrtown.

So did anyone else make kind a toothless sound effect while looking at these?


I can't describe it, but you have to make the sound when you look at the pictures. It's sort of a guttural honk that matches the modified expression in the pictures. AND I HAVE TO DO IT.
