union of opposites?
Does this image tickle you, or infuriate you? Do you read it symbolically or literally? Does the "shock" this image creates come from the deep division of our divided (dualistic) country (universe) or from our country's uneasiness with homosexuality (or both)? Would you hide this magazine if it were displayed prominently? Or, would you go as far a ripping the cover so that it was taken off the rack? Why is this image so confrontational when its expression is the exact opposite? That's irony, you know.
