Man, dicks are aesthetically unappealing. But then, they don't have the same social connotations as ladyparts and neither does male nudity, sexual or otherwise. It's usually played for laughs, probably because dudes (rightfully) find sexual objectification uncomfortable when it happens to us, so it has to be played off as a gag because most modern art is viewed through the male gaze.

Discuss.

For those of you who missed it, this is in response to Cracked writer/PWOT member Colonel Blimp attempting to get a rise out of DM by posting animated pictures of penises in a different thread that has since been appropriately renamed. Calvin thought it was a worthwhile topic of discussion so I split this off and moved it here.

Edit: I don't find funny dick pictures offensive, but posting NSFW content inline has always been a bannable offense, so I cleaned up the thread and left a warning behind.

I think cock pix in general on Dragon Mountain are a weak method for so-called 'trolling' (an anti-hater term invented by an internet user) because, as I said earlier on IRC, this is a forum "...built on a foundation of dicks."

Par the course really. I can't believe this is an issue for you guys.

I'd be interested to know what sparked this malicious attack from an anti-DM troll, though.

It was probably coordinated on that most nefarious of locations, an IRC channel

All Blimp's articles are all war/weapon based and he thinks dicks are battering rams, it's just so... typical.

We've been attacked by a stereotype.

I think this is pretty astute. Furthermore, trolling with lewd images of body parts both genders share, (for instance, a pooping butthole) also falls into the same category as dicks, because the fact that men own them as well as women opens said image up to that rejected objectification.

I suspect there's also an aspect of homophobia in using dick pics for "trolling" - a sort of ha ha, this is what gay people like to look at, now you will look at it and it will make you uncomfortable because you (like me, the troll) have fear in re homosexuals

I think the degree of learned homophobia in a chap's response to a dick largely depends on the individual dick in question, is it an easily scoffed-at fearful white worm or a head-turning proud horse boner launching voluminous facefuls of silky white scrotein

There's certainly some correlation there, as the more outward aspects of gay sexuality involve the objectification of men, and a willing acceptance of men to be objectified. There may have been an underlying current of homophobia in Blimp's original attack, but not exactly in the same way you described. As far as I could tell, the pictures he posted were lacking that sexual aspect, almost as if he were avoiding it himself.

Yeah, I think there's a lot to be said about the unconscious/repression and why blimp chose sexually explicit/objectifying images of men. It's important to recognize that the images were disguised beneath a thin layer of irony with their humorous nature (cartoon faces, rapid flopping, bro stretching), so they could offer a front of absurdity to disguise the true reason they are meant to shock (that is, the fact that we are seeing a bunch of pictures of penises because it's so against the heterosexual/patriarchal norm!).

I should probably point out that I didn't get to see any of these photos of cocks which I regret for, uh, scientific reasons

also because hey, dicks, woo!
