By associating nazi symbolism with something acceptable (in this case sexy ladies) it loses its power as a signifier of hatred and genocide. People look at those pictures and think "dang, i'd hit that" rather than "KILL SOME JEWS"

Or something like that. Its nearly 4am. I'm probably talking a load of shite.

The SS fetish is a common one as with all uniform fetishism's, its to do with power, authority and discipline.
Also, the uniform is one of the best tailored uniforms in the world, I personally don't think theres anything sexier.
The controversial aspect of it, well, I've never really understood controversy myself so I wouldn't know. People like to kick up a fuss about things that 'they' find offensive, its just a symbol, its not like i'm throttling a jew here or anything.

Or a mixed message of "Dang, I'll hit that WITH SOME JEWS."

I just wonder what kind of places sell Nazi flags.

Other than the fact you're the wearing the uniform of an army that killed 6 million jews + all the other types of people they threw in the camps, and tried to take over the entire fucking world?

EDIT: Just to confirm, I'm not offended or owt, but not atleast understanding the controversy suggests all that goes through your head is "Derp derp photo me please derp derp"

the way I see it, is that the Nazis invaded countries to expand their empire and to force their views of racial purity. They slaughtered Jews, Gypsys, Homosexuals and ended up going to war with quite a few countries which in total resulted in 6 milllion+ lives being lost.

And people find it a turn on because its so wrong. Which is fair enough IMO. Aslong as they reletavily keep it to themselves (as it must be awful to have lived through the 2nd world war, known a lot of friends/ family who died to let us live in the world in which we live in today) only to see people dressing up as these people 'cus its "sexy"

General point; do it but dont be suprised if people get offended; old or young!

It's just a uniform. It's not as if Hamdir was holding up a sign saying how we should all go out and kill some jews.

It's a sensitive subject, sure, but I don't think that photo is offensive, I was thinking "Dayamn that uniform is hawt".
