Paint me like one of your French girls... by woxys Paint me like one of your French girls... by woxys
Incredibly cute baby Harbor seal from ZOO Berlin, Germany :heart:
I have always wanted to at least see this pose, the seals usually make. But when this cutie climbed (after several unsuccessful attempts, because the baby was still stupid and tried to climb on the highest point :giggle:) the little isle and give us that pose, my heart totally melted!!!

For my dear ~Kajula :hug:


Title idea is from ~twinkleturtle :giggle: her comment totally amused me, so I changed the title, using her idea :D

"a)": "about rich vs. working class people" : right; "nitpicky" is about your perception; it does not only use "French" "as descriptive means for nationality": i don't see the meaning to refer only about nationality in general in a such hot scene as the one we are talking about.
"b)": :devwoxys" know very well what she is writing; i am sure she appreciates in you a friend she can rely on.
"c)" i don't know, may be you could suggest the beginning of an answer about this reasons but honestly i don't thing *woxys need to have reasons to be unkind

"To take something out of context and apply racial, national, sexual overtones so that one might be able to, to be self-justified to take offense a..."
->i think you should place the use of "french girl" in his context in the movie Titanic : as i said to =TVD-Photography the movie uses the national stereotype associated with french girl : nothing less nothing more, there is no need to hide this simple fact : every nationality is associated with stereotype and *woxys has understood this stereotype very well and the use she could make with this : i don't thing to be considered as a model for painter is to be favourably considered because model for painter in this time was poorly paid and exploitative : not really the question about "possessing great beauty and poise" but about being left to its own devices and live in the street, about poverty and insecurity.
i don't want to be "uptight" but i thing devart is a kind of place where deviant should be carefull with this things because i think devart is a place where take place communication between people from different culture so it's better to avoid "culture dissonance" as said ~Lady-Zana :dalove:

Hi thank you for replying first and foremost, I wasn't sure if you would and I just want to say I never thought you were stupid I just didn't thnk it was discrimination.
But if the word paint was substituted with that particular word I wouldn't be offended but I would be disgusted and would make a sour face at it.
French girls are stereotyped (sexy isn't a bad sterotype but the easy part would be) but so are a lot of other countries and their people. I could only imagine what people think when they think of Australians in general? :lol:

But again the people who wrote the script stereotyped so they should be the ones being bugged over it :lol:

in my opinion it would have sound a different way and he wouldn't have said that because [i saw this part of the movie] when she says this to leonardo it sounds like she was saying : " I want you **** me like one of your french girls? Wearing this, wearing only this". just substitute "paint" by "****". i am not that stupid and you are not and you know it wouldn't have sound as "sexy" as expected if she had said "" I want you **** me like one of your german [or australian] girls? Wearing this, wearing only this".
i know it is not a big deal but there is stereotype as the french girl are sexy and easy and the movie uses this stereotype and i don't see how you could tell me that is not true.
thanks anyway for you clever answer ;)

yep dolphins use their dorsal fins and whales use their pectoral fins for this, thats why humpback whales have massive pectoral fins, as they migrate between cold and troical waters so need the big flippers to cool down near the equator =)

There is no discrimination here. What if the title was "paint me like one of your Australian girls"? I'm pretty sure you would have looked at the title and wouldn't have been offended or seen it as discrimination because you're not Australian. If that was the title I wouldn't have been offended anyway because it has nothing to do with discriminating anyone.

If you want to annoy someone go write a letter to the creators of Titanic that used that very line.

To assume bigotry where there is none is bigotry itself. To find bigotry under every rock or stone is in itself a form of hatred. To take something out of context and apply racial, national, sexual overtones so that one might be able to, to be self-justified to take offense at what is said is in itself offensive. The legal definition of discrimination is something that would be offensive to “a normal person.” This seal was posing in a classical pose common to older master painters, many of which were French. It was a quote from a movie which tied in the pose of the animal to the pose struck in the movie. There is nothing slanderous about a French model vs an American model or an Australian model. If anything the term would be one of a complement indicating that a French model would be worthy of a work of art and therefore someone possessing great beauty and poise. If anything it would be a complement indicating someone with true class.

I am German and really don't get why anybody would feel offended by the movie quote or the fact that is is transferred in a definitely friendly (!) humorous way onto a baby seal posing. All I can say is that I wouldn't feel offended if Jack had painted German models and Rose would have said "German" instead of "French". The reason why I can't see any offence is that a) the movie doesn't convey stereotypes (about French people; if at all (seen from a nitpicky POV) about rich vs. working class people), it only uses "French" as descriptive means for nationality, b) even if the movie made any attempt at stereotyping, it wouldn't mean that woxys did and c) why would anybody wanna compare baby seals to French girls (regardless if you interpret it as nationality or as something indecent) except in a benevolently humorous way?

Bottom line: if anybody would say I look like a baby seal I would say "how kind, thank you" and not be upset. There might be cultural misunderstandings involved but please note woxys is in no way racist or hostile. Quite on the contrary, she is open-minded. For all that I know, she was just applying a movie quote that matched the pose of the baby seal. That doesn't mean she had bad intentions.
