quoth the madman


"Obscenity is relative. There is no ‘obscenity’ in the sense that there is ‘fire’ or ‘blood’, but only in the way that an ‘outrage to modesty’ exists. Such and such a thing is obscene if this or that person thinks it is and says so; it is not exactly an object, but a relationship between an object and the mind of a person."
- Georges Bataille
