I may get booted down to the bottom of the Chictopian list for this but….I don’t care :)

….So…I guess Chictopia think “smoking” is cool. Wow. nicely done.

Check out the home page with the smoking cig pic.

Personally, I have never ever had a cigarette in my mouth, but I still think smoking looks pretty cool, even tho I know it isn’t!!

I hate that! I don’t comment or vote for looks if the person is smoking. Or reblog on tumblr even if the photo is amazing

This is really bad for me to say, but I think smoking looks really cool (even though i don’t and will never smoke)! I would admire photos of people smoking, but would never promote it.

I believe smoking “being cool or uncool” is a personal opinion and a personal choice…but it’s not something that should be promoted as “cool” or “beautiful,” on a reputable site like Chictopia where a lot of young girls go for inspiration. I can go on and on about this topic but I’ll keep it at that.

For those who’s curious, this was the pic that was on the homepage, the pic that the “editor” actually picked.

Also, I left her a message and it somehow was deleted…and I wasn’t even mean-spirited.

i would never hype or comment on a photo with a smoker in it, but if it’s one of those really vintage cigarrette things that audrey hepburn smoked in some of her photos then i have to admit it looks sophisticated, but not in modern times, with a modern cigarrette.

@KTR:I posted a not mean-spirited comment too, just warning about smoking and it got deleted as well!

I don’t think she should be penalized because there’s a cigarette in the photo. how do you know the girl was picked because ‘lololololol smoking is cool’ and not because her ensemble was worthy of being noticed?

your comment might have been deleted because she didn’t care to have people berate her on her personal life choices. just because it wasn’t mean-spirited doesn’t mean it wasn’t offensive to lecture on something auxiliary like that, on a fashion site. I’m sure she and others are quite aware of what cigarettes are.

@tightsandtea, no one is penalizing her for smoking, if you read what I wrote, I said its a personal choice and whether you like it or not, it is a personal opinion…this whole topic is about chictopia, but you obviously didn’t read.

Ps. I actually left a very nice message saying “this is a very nice outfit and I love the bright colors, you look beautiful, but cig?”

how is “you look beautiful, but cig?” not berating her personal choice? that in itself is offensive, whether or not it’s done nicely. My whole point is that this is a fashion site, so comments of that nature are unnecessary and a little uncalled for. It’s not your personal opinion I care about. I don’t smoke either.

I understand your concern that people might start smoking because they see one photo with a cigarette on chictopia, but as I said, to disregard the image entirely on those grounds—which is what you were advocating—would be penalizing her for smoking. You could almost say the cigarette was an ironic addition that reflects the vintage nature of her ensemble (i.e. hepburn)—in that sense it’s almost for historical accuracy.

..what do you mean “I didn’t read”? is my opinion not valid? To state that “chictopia thinks smoking is cool” kind of implies she was chosen for the cigarette and not her style.

@tightsandtea How is a simple question mark “berating” her personal choice? If I posted a picture of my *ss, and someone made a comment, should I delete it? Why? I made the personal choice of putting an image up for people to comment. Should I delete your comment here (if I had the ability to) because you’re disagreeing with me right now? No, because you are entitle to your opinion and I respect that you are speaking your mind, whether if you’re agreeing with me or not. This is a public site and people can say whatever they feel. Correct me if I am wrong….

Anyway, like I said, I thought she was beautiful and the outfit was pretty and I never had an issue with her “personal” choices. She can smoke until she turn blue for all I care. My issue was with Chictopia.

To state that “Chictopia thinks smoking was cool” was more of a sarcasm which you obviously didn’t catch.

Well I’m going to keep it at that. Have a good night :)

I guess I get where you’re coming from, but if you don’t have an issue with her personal choices, then why did you mention your disdain for the cigarette to her in the first place? criticizing the fact that she has a cigarette is in fact criticizing that she has a cigarette, really no two ways around it..

also, just because you can technically say whatever you want on the internet doesn’t mean people should—that’s not really sound justification. I mean I don’t really care either way, but lets limit critiques to fashion on a fashion website :]

…..This is a web site about fashion. I can promise you the cigarette isn’t the reason the person was featured, and it would be biased of the Chictopia staff to disqualify them just for holding a cigarette in the picture.

If Chictopia started promoting cigarettes as being fashionable and trendy, that would be troubling. But simply featuring someone based on their fashion, who happens to be holding a cigarette, is nothing. If some people choose that lifestyle, that’s their choice, and I don’t see why anyone would want Chictopia to shun them for it.

hmm, yeah. I know it’s a personal choice and all, but it really is a nasty habit, with lethal consequences! :)
