Sexualized Cartoons And The Virgin Mary | An EON Special

Hello! It’s the bottom half of the week and I want to enter it with a bang.

Sex in cartoons!

Wh — what? You mean animated cartoons?

Yes.

Like manga porn?

No, not manga porn. I’m talking animations that we all love to watch. Characters we have grown up with, spent our time living up to and identifying with. Figures so innocent and inspiring, it would be disturbing to think of them in a way that even approximates sex.

Kind of unsettling, isn’t it? I mean, these are characters we enjoyed watching as kids, or enjoy watching now, with our kids and nephews, before 9 o’ clock bedtime. There’s no space for toned bodies and voluptuous curves here.

Yowza!

I mean, preposterous! How dare they?

Ditto for male animations.

Ok, this one isn’t a real character. Consider him a post-op transsexual Ariel.

Speaking of transsexuals . . .

Yay flip-side!

Still looking for an original male character.

Still looking.

Damn it, are there no sexualized male animations out there?

There you have it. Sexy Jack Frost, in an albino kind of way.

I think he’d make a good match for Elsa.

Back to the effortlessly sizzling — those who were super-hot to begin with.

Smokin’! isn’t she? (For more art by sakimichan, click here.)

Feeling weird?

Then you know exactly how the people of the Middle Ages felt when they went from this . . .

To this…

Madonna With Child and Five Angels by Sandro Botticelli (circa 1470) (notice the exposed neck and the curves of the breasts, an inconceivable and outrageous depiction at the time)

Nothing Sacred

Perhaps this is what progress is all about. Breaching the unbreachable, breaking the taboos, moving beyond all limits, into the unfathomable.

Then again, maybe this is what hell is all about. No sense of propriety, decorum, inhibition or respect for what is (or should be considered) holy.

Such is life. The more we know the further we advance, often at the peril of what was once deemed beyond limits.

No wonder the forbidden fruit was the fruit of knowledge, the tasting of which resulted in Adam and Eve getting cast out of Eden i.e. denied the bliss of unencumbered existence, thereby entering the hell of sapient consciousness.

Who said scripture is useless, mindless fairytale?

Have a nice evening!

Vexed? Watch this space for more.
