Nobody expressed surprise about it. Doesn't stop us complaining, though. People aren't going to give up objecting and shut up about something, just because it has become entrenched and expected. That would be like not bothering to point out the problems caused by eating dairy products, because doing so has become mainstream!
I haven't heard any music by Pussy Riot and haven't closely followed the story, so I can't comment on them or their motives (although their naff name makes me wince), but I can comment on the fact that women who are young and attractive get a lot more publicity and sympathy than those who aren't. That makes me sad and cynical.
still dont see the connection...
but i guess we are not getting enough people saying "why animal abuse is in the media while children are suffering" and claims like that exactly the same logic.
cant really blame them if some of them are attractive, to me they look like regular young women, so cant see why the need to blame them for it, or bring it up in a context of support against their oppression.
