    Default AIDS - Rape - Death - Suicide



    Marilyn Manson incorporates a lot of derogatory and offensive imagery into his live performances, as well as pretty much relegating almost everything he mentions in a song/interview to be about AIDS, beating women, rape, and a battery of other subjects that most people would take great offense to instead of the deeper more genuine subject matter he used to be admired for making commentary on. Do you find it entertaining? Is he doing it just to be outrageous or is there another reason for it? What is his intent? Why does he refer to himself as the AIDS of Space? This should be an interesting discussion. After all, Marilyn Manson has always been the type to do and say things to get a reaction. I an a Marilyn Manson fan, and I understand why he does what he does. I appreciate his art and always will. I am just curious as to if you find his current persona to be entertaining?

    As a fan, I do not always agree, but I understand social commentary and that he is not advocating beating up women. Do I find his Aids jokes funny? No, I don't, but then I don't find child abuse or rape jokes funny. Do I understand what he is doing when he brings certain things up in his songs? Yes I do.

    Funny thing is I'm a Marilyn Manson fan too.

    That's not the point, you're interpreting it that way. Stay on topic please.

    I love irony. We need more cynical atheists in the world and less Godly idiots. But there's a point where sarcasm becomes treachery, and treachery is often sarcasm in the media. So Marilyn Manson has done a fine job of weighing the scales.

    It's pretty childish to me at this point, but it's whatever. Doesn't keep me from enjoying what I enjoy about his work.

    I hope you at least already know the answer to this, I immediately assumed it was a spoonerism of "ace of spades".
