Wow... this all seems terribly unfair AND taken out of context.

I was the person who said that the written description your photograph had contained a leap in a train of thought that was not immediately evident and that the description you wrote came across as creepy.

I said it to you as a friend and a colleague and not with any nasty or malicious intent. I understood where your train of thought started and where it stopped and understood the comment in the context, but told you that the two juxtaposed together did not come across well. If you don't agree with me, why did you take your original description down?

I disagree with your statement that my judgment (of those two things juxtapositioned was creepy) means: "If someone finds a work that depicts consenting adults 'perverted,' then it says more about the mental state of the accuser than the intentions of the photographer."

I thought the photograph was lovely and so was your blog about your dad. However, when you take a picture of a Fitness101 about to dive into your pussy and then put in the written description of "[this makes me think of my dad...]" I think it's an odd (and creepy) combination.

If this is truly an attempt at introspection, then the focus should not have been on the adjective, but rather the fact that someone thought something you did/said was odd and had the courtesy and dignity to tell you so honestly, especially when the comment starts out "I heart Unbearable Lightness..."
