I know there’s been much ado about the owner of Abercrombie and Fitch criticizing ugly people while many here consider him to be ugly. I could go on about whether this is or isn’t hypocritical on either front and about the subjective meaning of beauty and all that but I want to address something I feel is more important and that’s the comparison of the man in question to an orc.
Most of the memes resulting from this controversy have shown Gothmog alongside their C.E.O., and I want to talk about why that’s wrong.
Gothmog served in Sauron’s army during the War of the Ring, as the lieutenant of Minas Morgul, second-in-command to the Witch-king of Angmar, lord of the nine Nazgûl. He took command of the forces of Morgul during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields after the Witch-king was slain by Éowyn. That makes him a veteran and I don’t care what side he fought for, the point is he fought for what he believed in and did so with exceptional nobility. It was he who called for Grond to break down the gates of Minas Tirith, it was he who was nearly crushed when the white city launched chunks of massive stone on his location, moving only at the final moment to survive. All with a tumor on his head the size of a grapefruit. And tumblr has made him the standard of ugliness.
I don’t give a damn about Abercrombie guy, but to reduce one of if not the greatest of orcs to an ugly joke just to mock the guy in unfair and ignorant.
Just something from my home blog you may enjoy.
Though many are familiar with bubble wrap as packing material, few see it alive in its natural habitat. Seen here attached to the bark of a polymer tree, the live bubble wrap (approx 2 years old) clings tightly to the bark and attempts to climb higher to avoid predators.
No known animal eats the bubble wrap, but bears and wolves have been known to pop it for pleasure like humans causing the species to diminish drastically since it’s reign over pre-carboniferous earth.

Stop acting like the thought of hooking up with me isn’t getting you flowing like the Niagra Falls downstairs. You aren’t fooling anyone.
So although ‘The Talk’ seemed to find this a hilarious event, it is comforting to know that a court of law didn’t.
