All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

To be sexy means to conform, as well. (Not a Pagan Post)

I have been following the German soccer players' Playboy adventures.

One of them explains that they wanted to do something against the 'clichée of the ugly, butch, lesbian soccer player'

So. What is the best way to battle such an image? Right, pose naked, show titties, please the objectifying POV, awesome, nice work. Bimbo.

Now the German female soccer players can be sure that their audience will be more focusing on their excellent game play and technique, and not on their lesbian butchiness. Thumbs up!

 

I have been suspecting since longer that as a female nowadays you are gently forced into porno-fying yourself if you want to prove that you are a modern person, if you revolt against that be prepared to be called 'Miss Prudy Pants'. I am not calling that real progress, that is rather pushing females more steps back than we've made forwards so far when it comes to how we are viewed, regardless of the right to vote etc. Wanna display having self-esteem and self-worth? Show me your tits, otherwise you have none!

 

My problem is that I have to wait for some important, pretty person to speak up against the servile attitude of the German sports-bimbos, because if I say it, I do it because of course I must be jealous. I have yet to decide whether I am more pissed at the pressure to conform by letting your tits hang out everywhere, or by the troll logics you face when speaking up against it. Also, sexy is seriously starting to bore the living FUCK out of me.

Ha, if the beast would at least be a real beast, but it is rather a rotten spoiled toddler who wants icecream every day, nothing but icecream=P

I wouldn't want to be with someone who thinks with this kind of mentality, so it's a good job *the masses* find each other to make more babies who will invariably grow up with the same mentality.

Please elaborate, Pavlor. I am not upset about the naked part, I am upset about the bunnyesque presentation. Female soccer players *used* to be representatives of the strong female who does not care about fitting the girlie stereotype.

'Liberated women who celebrate their bodies and their sexuality. What should be wrong with that?' Almost exactly quoting Gene Simmons talking about a PLayboy Mansion party, off the top of my head.

Yes, Sat, Hony soit qui mal y pense. The ebil is us, because our eyes are ebil.

I don't see it as a big deal. Some women use it to express their sexuality, some are just idiots and have the IQ of Paris Hilton. I don't think being sexy means you conform, but hey that's just me.

To a certain degree, if you want to fit in, you have to show your tits and spread your legs, and display being all liberated and free about it. I don't think that is a good standard, and I get to hear often that I should 'show what I have' not only in tight clothing from all kinds of sides where you would not expect it from. I believe to remember that in the early nineties, it did not use to be that ...penetrating.

I mean it is awesome if that does not impress you, first and foremost.

 

otherwise: I left the headline as it were after I confused myself with swapping conform and sexy a bit too often.

I don't mind being not modest and I use the attention to make it into my favor. Its always good to get on the inside and take it down. For some women that's how they express their sexuality. I don't see that as a bad thing. 

 

One of the things that concerns me about 2nd wave feminism was that it seemed to have very Conservative and somewhat Christian views about sex, male sexuality, and female sexuality. Its all natural to me. (As if nudity.) Its something that should not be excluded or condemned. The girls in the magazines have personalities so I usually reserve my judgement for that. Its one of the reasons I love Courtney Love over Paris Hilton. (Actually hate Paris, so do a lot of people based on her personality.)

 

The idea that all nudity is sexual is also a concern for me because nudity is natural and its not all sexual. I think Shannon Hoon proved that. He ran around naked all the time.

Xoc, do not misunderstand me. I have issues with having oneself reduced, presented in that stereotypical non threatening passive manner, and most of all, Lookism.

When do you see a female nude in a truly aggressive manner that is not intended to be 'scary' 'revolting' or 'lesbian'?

Or lets say, a female, lol?
