I am one of those people that can see both sides of the argument. (In most cases). And i am worried that this can sometimes come across as hypocritical, but is it hypocritical to just be able to be open minded about everything. Surely there are worst things to be?
I believe in women’s rights and that our generation is obsessed with over sexualising women, but i also believe that women expect to be able to sexualise a man i.e the Diet coke break ads. If this ad was reversed and it was three men sat around drinking coke and ogling a women it would get banned within a week.
So i get confused with myself as to where exactly i stand on the controversy of Feminist views. Feminism is a dirty word now, associated with hairy women and ugly lesbians…..or this is who the anti-feminists try to paint it. I don’t feel that we are helping ourselves by becoming so freely open on social media, posting topless pics when we are not actually being paid for it isn’t really saying much. YES you can be proud of your body and i think it is great if you are comfortable, but we need to change the perception of women before we can truly change society. Why is it the sun feel the need to post a women’s vital statistics as readily as her age? Does her cup size really make her any more or less of a woman?? We as women have spent 100s of years stroking the male ego ‘No darling, size doesn’t matter’ yet we are allowing the media to judge us on our breast size?
Again, this is coming across all so hypocritical because only a year ago i was freely posing topless to further my laughable modelling career. Now i am away from the industry i realise that i have damaged my self confidence as my boob size wasn’t adequate, and i want more than ever for all these pictures to just disappear. But they wont. But yet i am envious of the girls who are so confident in themselves and would never ask them to change, but why does confidence and attractiveness have be measured on how little clothes someone has on?
