    i don't know. Kitty, i agree about 80% with you. but part of me also thinks there's something very patronising about always characterising women as weak victims with no agency and who freeze and go along with whatever richardson tells them to do. i mean, that might be the case for some of them but don't you think there's also a chance that some of them went along with it and then regretted it when they actually saw the pictures and thought about it? none of them have said they were drunk or otherwise impaired. i don't doubt richardson is a fucking asshole but the point is, if you consent and go along with something and show no signs of being uncomfortable with a situation, how is the person on the other end supposed to know that you're actually not cool with what's going on?

    He's a total cliche. I know quite a few male new york photographers (some famous/well known some not) and most of them kind of remind me of terry: older single guys who take nude/scandalous pictures of young girls and they usually end up sleeping with or coming onto these girls. they use their "art" as a means to act out sick fantasies.
    But honestly, this girl is 19 years old she needs learn that if she's going to put herself in this sort of position to be with someone who is notorious for being creepy and weird who has already made her uncomfortable she has a choice and she should have told him that she was leaving if he wasn't going to take her seriously or she should have just left. I wasn't there but I'm not buying it especially if other people are around. You're an adult you make decisions for yourself and no one is forcing you to give terry richardson a hand job. that was a decision you made.
    I think it would be one thing if the model was working directly for an being paid directly by the photographer. And that has been the case in some of the examples. However, if a magazine or agency sends a model to Richardson, the model is now working under the fear that if she doesn't a) go to the shoot, and b) capitulate to what the photographer wants, that c) she risks losing work or being blackballed. That is the essence of quid pro quo sexual harassment and a hostile workplace. In any other workplace environment, this situation would result in massive lawsuits against not just the photographer, but also the against the agency that knowingly sent a model into that type of environment.

    I agree completely, which is why I said 'sometimes'. The bus incident wasn't the first or only time that I've had to deal with someone coping a feel and at other times I have turned around and let the groping bastard know exactly what I thought of him and how quickly he'd lose a hand if he tried it again, but every situation and every person is different. With the bus incident I think my mind froze because this was 8.30am on a route that I traveled five days a week without a single problem and I was as good as stood by the driver waiting for him to pull into my stop. I couldn't believe that this was happening or that it was happening so publicly in front of a potential witness and I blanked out.

    As for Richardson there have been enough stories about his unrelenting skeeviness that I don't think anything short of snatching up his camera and hitting him over the head with it would make any difference. I rather suspect that he's of a type who would get an even bigger thrill if a woman made it clear that she was uncomfortable with his attentions. That's not to say that they should go along with what he was doing, just that with someone like him it would be a lose/lose situation to be in.

    Forget cialis - alprostadil is the shit you want. You can knock nails in with it after a shot of that.
