& some more on this picture & my POV (point of view) on it
as long as women feel they have to use their bodies to get attention – ageing or not- defeats the very purpose . The purpose of liberation, of our education, of us being raised to believe we are equal in every which way to men. I mean can you imagine Obama posing in trunks before the next polls- how will that work?
And that expression in this photograph- forget the feathers or the caterpillar. – MY god– what is that? It looks stupid enuff in playboy centre spreads … its such a slavish “catch the male eye with the come F*** me look” cliche. Its awful. God awful
We all age. Its inevitable. And there is a great grace & beauty in that… Monica Belluci is a Bond girl at 50. Look at Sophia Loren or the impact Audrey Hepburn had on the world in her later years… See pics of Mother Teresa when she was young- she would have been a cover girl had she taken off her clothes too.
A woman who is a slave to the male gaze (which over the years is totally how women view each other too & that is the biggest tragedy) whether 30 years ago or now is still a slave… I rest my case. No more on this pic. There is a cockroach in my bathroom that i need to kill
