Remembering the Thaksin Years: Thai Models Should Be Modest

From Thairath, November 19, 2003
Cartoon title: Be more conscious and responsible to the society
Sign on model reads: Symbol of model who want to go on international stage
Sign carried by band on the left reads: Cultural crisis

[An interesting preoccupation of the Thaksin political clique was a moral conservatism. This resulted in promoting international fashion shows, but threatening promoters if nudity or over-revealing clothes were shown. Gay-pride gatherings in the north of the country where harassed by Thaksin supporters. In Bangkok, nightlife was strictly confined to some predefined areas. This was generally popular with a Thai public that felt that dangers from a licentious outside world were impacting gentile Thai ways.]

    Moral hypocrisy are a more suitable term than moral conservatism – they have approved rape and murder in TV drama while reject any violence in TV Animations – How shameful!

    Thaksin haters are always trying hard to discredit him but what happened inside and outside the parliament in July and August as well as in coming September showed they are pushed to the corner and they will soon realize they are losing the game.

    Nope, we just talk about the nature of Ai Maew’s cliques – nothing more!
