DORIEN GREY AND ME: “GOLDILOCKS” aka the source for the RBB porridge photo
Just a photo, right? WRONG!
The source for this photo comes from a blog called Dorien Grey and Me, which is run by a gay man named Roger. His most recent post is called, “Growing up Gay” in which he says, “I talk so much about being gay because for the first nearly 2/3 of my life I was, out of very real concern for the possible subsequences, unable to do so.”
“Dorien Grey” is of course a nod to infamous homosexual writer Oscar Wilde’s novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and this photo is from his post called “Goldilocks” which begins:
The little golden-haired moppet of the children’s classic had to deal with a series of three choices: too much of something, not enough of it, and just the right amount. When it comes to thinking, people tend to favor Goldilocks’ second choice; they either think too little, or do not think at all, which is the path of least resistance. Very few tend to think too much.
The post is about people that don’t think too much and let others do the thinking for you. “They must know what they’re talking about, or they wouldn’t be on TV or writing articles, right? So just go along in whatever direction they point you and never, never ask questions.”
It is a very good analysis of the convenience of hate and how it can sway opinions easily and you can have a read for yourself if you like.
Given the extreme detail with which those bears are decorated, I don’t see why they would just randomly choose an image. Although this is a popular image for “three porridge bowls” it isn’t the first one, and it isn’t even the best looking one.
