…but i mostly hate it when he photographs people i like and respect. not just because it makes me question them, but because it means my tumblr dashboard is filled with reblogs of photos of babes that queer people like such as chloe sevigny and freja beha… but they’re still photographs by terry richardson. i used to have a “unfollow” if people post a) b) or c) (either things i find triggering or offensive) but damn some of y’all are still cool.
so here’s a refresher:
fuck terry richardson
fuck any of his photography, of anyone
i don’t care what he photographs, whether it be kittens or a fucking war zone - it doesn’t change the fact that he is still an abusive sexist piece of shitdouchebag who refuses to take responsibility for his behaviour. by reblogging his shit or following his tumblr you’re kind of giving the thumbs up(haha) to the practices he uses (manipulation, exploitation, etc) to take those photographs, and to be paid a pretty penny to do so.
i can’t for the life of me understand why any fashion magazine or brand continues to hire him, i find it indefensible. fuck the way he treats women, fuck the way he treats his mother (slightly ableist headline/imperfect article, but important questions about ethics), fuck terry richardson.
It is DISGUSTING that the fashion industry still allows this piece of shit to work.

I already told you that I don’t care if you don’t like Missing e, is it really necessary to not only ask me about it every time I try to access my dashboard, but prevent me from using the site until I answer the same question for the second or third time?
