She’s done really interesting films - she’s like the female Johnny Depp. She could be Hollywood, but it’s the film choices she’s made that set her apart. And what I love about her is that she has her own style, she loves what she loves and she’s an incredibly confident woman, but she’s totally up for change. Most celebrities want to repeat what they’ve honed and are comfortable in, but she’s up for doing anything which is unusual in an actress. - Lucinda Chambers
I’m pretty fed up much fed up with the idea that women are supposed to be these sexually reserved beings. Its like we’re not to express our sexuality or even gain comfortability in our own skin.
It’s like a catch 22 in today’s world (in the states of course). Women are ‘supposed’ to be comfortable in our skin while society sexualizes everything we do. We lick on a popsicle and it’s deemed a bit graphic. The president’s daughter was seen wearing shorts in 90 degree weather while wearing biker shorts underneath and it’s deem inappropriate for her age. Things like that depict just how caged we are. A child can not wear shorts without it being sexualized.
I realized seen a photograph of baby with her parents in Brazil wearing a cute little two piece bathing suits and more than few comments read that it was inappropriate for the child to wear. For some reason, Americans tend to try to impose their ideas onto others feeling as if their ideas are the ‘correct’ ways of living. Meanwhile if you think about the reasons behind their thoughts, it’s kind of sickening. How does one even sexualize the body of an young toddler (may one year old) enough to think a child wearing a two piece bathing suit is inappropriate?
Everything is sexualized to a point that girls can’t feel comfortable in their skin as they enter womanhood. They are constantly on watch for what is ‘appropriate’ due to society that can’t understand their bodies enough to accept them. Wearing a tank top in the summer can easily be deemed inappropriate if your bust is too big.
If women can not be able to fit comfort in their skin how can we even find comfort in our sexuality. We’re too be reserved in within the bound of what is appropriate so how can we understand our sexuality. A woman can not step into the threshold of what is thought to be too sexy because then you’re a slut. Meanwhile men roam the streets with the idea conveyed by society and media that being a “ladies man” makes a man cool. Men who ‘get bitches’ and have sleep with dozens of woman are cream of crop meanwhile women can’t have more than 6 person body count without getting the side eye. It’s such bullshit. I’m so over this country and it’s idea of what’s appropriate.
Gained weight as I lost self confidence. Worst feeling ever. I’m so over ever feeling the way I feel about my body currently.
