'Sex' doesn't sell. Erosion of female self esteem does. The feeling of superiority over women does. Turning women into 'things' to be studied, scrutinized & judged and then calling it 'sex' does.

Sex doesn’t sell. Objectification does

EAST ASIAN MYTHOLOGY MEME:

[2/9] CHINESE GODS AND GODDESSES | MAZU

Mazu [媽祖], also spelt Matsu and Ma-tsu, is the Chinese goddess of the sea who is said to protect fishermen and sailors.

Over 1,000 years ago, a beautiful young girl by the name of Mazu (original name was Lin Mo) was born at the Xianliang Port of Meizhou Bay in Putian, East China’s Fujian Province. Clever, brave and kindhearted, Mazu could forecast the weather and offered medical services to fellow islanders. With her innate weather-forecasting ability, Mazu saved the lives of many fishermen from the menacing typhoons.

Since Mazu encouraged the people to conquer nature and defeat evil, she was much loved and esteemed by the locals. Touched by her kindness and good deeds, the townspeople greatly respected her and eventually deified her as the daughter of the dragon, the Goddess of the Sea and the Holy Mother who could bring them blessings. Unfortunately, Mazu died at the young age of 28. As legend goes, Mazu ascended to heaven and became immortal at Meizhou Bay, located opposite to Xianliang Port.

"Eu não tinha muito a oferecer, não tinha uma casa própria, não tinha um carro, não tinha um centavo no bolso. O máximo que consegui foi me formar na faculdade, mas ainda morava com os meus pais, ainda não sabia muito o que fazer da minha vida. Mas eu tinha tanto amor pra oferecer, e Deus, como eu rezei pra esse amor ser o suficiente pra fazer com que ele ficasse."

From a recent Infrared Photography Photo Walk in Chateau de la Hulpe, near Brussels (Belgium). I shot this with a standard Panasonic Lumix GF2 camera with the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5 -5.6 MEGA O.I.S. lens and a filter HOYA R72. In post production I swapped the red and blue channel to colour the lake and the clear sky to produce this false colours infrared image of this intriguing pond.
