My answer to your question will just be another question. If we're talking about appropriateness, then she should have worn something black, right? You said she's seeking for justice for Nika and Alexis, so why wear something so casual? The clothes she's wearing has really nothing to do with the sign and the magazine itself.
You don't like her cover on that mag, I don't have a problem with that. No one is forcing you like it or not. I don't really care. The reason WHY you don't like it is what I'm pointing out.
You're making this story very long and complicated. If I don't like her cover then that's it. If I don't find it sexy, then let me. It's my opinion. If you THINK you know better, then that's fine with me. If you're saying that you can see the big picture (or whatever is that you are saying that you are trying to instill, or should I say force on me), then go ahead. It's just your opinion anyway.
Duh. Again, you've missed the point by a mile.
Ayaw ko lang magpaka hipokrito na isiping magkasing sexy o sexier ang babaeng naka jeans kesa sa babaeng naka swimsuit. And FYI, it's not only FHM that I read and collect.
A men's magazine is not all about sex and sexy. There's more to life than that, and it's good to see that this rival mag has clearly shown that. It's obvious you only collect FHM kaya yan ang standard mo for sexy. And it's obvious you can't see the big picture
I just don't like her cover. It's not FHM-sexy. And it's really hard for me to consider it as a men's magazine appearance.
This is not PETA, they're seeking justice for 2 slain film critics. Expect some outrage if you see Rhian Ramos and Gaby dela Merced in FHM-type wardrobe or in provocative poses with them carrying a sign saying "Justice for Alexis and Nika." It would look stupid.
So her cover can't be considered as a sexy men's mag appearance at all. It's no different to her usual pictorial, only this time, she's seeking for justice for the mag contributor.
That other magazine is known to be more stylish that FHM. FHM is sleazy compared to that one. Plus, they're campaigning for justice for a slain contributor of that mag. So showing skin and sexiness does not justify that cause
For me, a men's magazine cover must have any of the following elements:
Para namang di pang men's mag yung cover nya...Why, what's your idea of a men's magazine cover?
- at least a little bit of flesh; just enough to tease readers
- a cover babe that emotes sexiness
Obviously, her cover doesn't have any of these... Just compare an FHM cover to hers and see the big difference.
And Rhian Ramos is already sexy in whatever she wears, whether it's a two-piece swimwear or in simple casual wear. The way she carries herself already exudes sexiness. That's not enough for you?
I hope FHM can give justice to Rhian Ramos soon.
I'd rather go direct-to-the-point than define sexiness as blah blah blah. FHM and that other magazine is a MEN'S MAGAZINE for crying out loud.
Sige, let me ask you. Do you think it's appropriate that Rhian Ramos should wear a swimsuit and/or do a FHM-esque sexy pose while she's holding a sign saying "Justice for Alexis and Nika?"
If someone dear to your heart was killed, should the girls attending the wake dress like they're ready to party and get laid?
If you have the right answer, then you'd know why her cover on that mag is not "FHM-sexy"
And you haven't answered my question. Do you think it's appropriate that Rhian Ramos should wear a swimsuit and/or do a FHM-esque sexy pose while she's holding a sign saying "Justice for Alexis and Nika?"
Just look at what FHM did. They featured the same story without having the cover girl hold a sign.And look at the result: Bianca Manalo, looking very very sexy in the beach without having to affect or compromise the story inside.
Avoiding the question. A simple yes or no will suffice. And you're so wrong. Clothes have something to do with the whole thing. Would you like it if someone attended your wedding in shorts and slippers? Dress for the occasion, that's what they say.
And since when did FHM put politics and social awareness and the like as their primary theme? The answer: NEVER. Sex sells, and that's FHM theme. Always has, always will be. I doubt we'll ever see FHM have a cover girl pose in something simple with a sign asking for justice, for Noynoy to resign, etc. It's good to see that FHM recognizes this blight in the quest for justice, BUT it's not their primary theme. Bianca Manalo is.
Anyway, this will be my final say on the topic. You're right, this has gone on long enough. And I doubt you will really get it, especially the concept of justice.
