Spot The Disaster: Survivor Shmurvivor

This odd image was found floating around social media sites like Pinterest.  We respect the message, but can’t get past the horrible PSD they used to illustrate their point.  Can you spot it?

survivorThanks for sending this in, Angela.

    Your “Can you spot the disaster?” posts are usually a lot more difficult to spot. With a built-in stilt on only her right leg, I think she would find it difficult to walk.

    Of all the messages to attach to a picture of a woman with a missing hip!! I want so badly to un-see this.

    Also the open-legged pose seems designed to attract male attention. Doesn’t quite fit with the message

    That rape leaves irreparable psychic damage is not to be challenged. But up your leg? Despite that, the look of conqueringly transcendent equanimity that, in this case, it brings, is, well, not to be challenged.

    Not seeing the disaster, did a low-effort green outline to show where it looks to me her right hip and torso are compared to the folded left leg. Unless I’m supposed to be seeing something else…

    The image didn’t attach last time, let’s hope it works this time

      Pull out a ruler and measure her leg and her torso. Even if you’re right about the outline (you’re not, but let’s go with it for the sake of argument), that makes her legs quite a bit longer than the rest of her body combined, and there’s not enough foreshortening going on to explain that away as anything other than a disaster.

    At first I thought that this was a big disaster indeed, but upon closer inspection, there might be a logical explanation for that appearance – i.e. bad lightning.
    I reckon the translucent look of that dress is mostly due to shadows which just SEEM to be the outlines of her body. If you look closely, though, all of those “outlines” could well be a shadow, even that dark bit under her arms.
    I also thought that a chunk of her thigh was missing, but staring at the picture really hard I noticed a barely visible outline right under the “me” and “a” which could well be a badly lit part of the dress.
    So, no disaster, I’d say.
    Except for putting a half naked, all styled-up woman in a transparent-ish looking dress and a revealing-while-not-quite-revealing pose next to an anti-rape text. Doesn’t quite deliver the message, if you ask me. Though it might have been intended to point out that even women dressed and posing like that aren’t automatically inviting anyone to have sex with them. Which certainly is something that should be made clear.
    But I would have quite liked it if they’d been able to find a more assertive-looking pose _minus_ that outstretched leg.

      Which is exactly what they want to say!

      ……Which certainly is something that should be made clear. …..
      As it is, in the text.
      Also @Roderick, she is making clear there is NO excuse, also not in the pose. NO excuse!

    damn… Rape can really deform women. :(

      Seriously, that’s the comment you decided to post?
      Did you not read the text? Or you just don’t care?
      tssss ……….

    Did you notice her hand on her arm? There is some webbing between her fingers
