Dita Von Teese and the vintage pin-ups really made me appreciate my body shape more than countless hours spent looking through fashion magazines ever could. When not in corsets, it’s just really nice to see thighs that don’t fit into size 2 jeans and some softness in a woman’s stomach, just like mine, and still have it be sexy as hell to humanity.

Girl Talk: Playing Doctor.

  • I had to explain female internal anatomy last night, because he always refers to being all the way in as "almost hitting the other side," like it's some magical land or something. Finally, I was like, "That is my cervix. It is the top of the entire contraption. And yes, it's hard, so if you hit it, it hurts both of us."

Girl Shit Bodies Men vs. Women Vagina Is Not A Stargate

The guy I’m seeing is a massive Stargate fan. As a treat, I am seriously considering the application or shaving of the Stargate Earth symbol somewhere on my body (temporarily, of course).

Does this make me the coolest girl ever? I think so.

Take It Back

Tonight in my Gender Comm. class, one of the (few) guys brought up the fact that Toronto has apparently been experiencing a lot of rape cases recently, which he attributed to the fact that women there have been warned not to dress “like hoes.”

Now, I’m all for appropriate attire and not over (or UNDER, in this case,) dressing for an occasion like going out and clubbing, but just the way he kept saying that these women were almost ASKING for it by the way they displayed themselves as sexy, sexual, alluring creatures infuriated me, and in this, my class that could be retitled “Talking Openly And Safely About Our Relationships And Very Personal Lives,” I brought up the fact that I recently posted (obviously) nude silhouettes. 

I told him, and everyone else, that I was not doing it for attention, or to be risqué. I told him that I was not “asking” to be viewed as a sex object by doing so. I told him that I should be free to use and express my appreciation for my body— this body that I’ve worked long and hard to get it to this point that I am so PROUD of— because it is MINE, and I LOVE IT. It has NOTHING to do with “asking” for sexual comments— no surprise I got that anon after posting them, though, right? I was well aware that something like that would probably happen. Just like those women who he deemed as “asking for it” shouldn’t be judged for wanting to feel and look whatever way that they themselves feel good looking or feeling. In fact, posting those pictures was probably the furthest thing away from sexual— instead, it was a celebration of ME. Of feeling comfortable in my skin. In enjoying the way my body can bend, can stretch, can glow in lighting. I was taking my body back, embracing it, and making it mine by making it something worth enjoying to see, just the way that artist’s models (hi, that’s you, mom,) do, or ballet dancers— have you SEEN how little the wear? And yet, neither of those things are sexual. Or, at least, they aren’t meant to be.

So, here’s my sticking point— it’s time for women to take back our bodies and what they mean. Those aren’t breasts— they’re what make my shirt fit right. Those aren’t my hips— that’s what help me open a door when my hands are full. That’s not my ass— that’s what I know how to sit with perfect equitation on a horse on. Whether we’re taking our bodies back from people who would try to sexualize them just for the sake of frivolous titillation, or from the ad campaigns that seem to be brow-beating us into thinking that there’s nothing in life other than a size 2 woman, it’s up to us ladies to remove the shame with the clothes, stand up, snap a shot, and say, “This is mine. This is my body. I am proud of it. And I’ll do/eat/dress with it what I like.” 

XOXO

Nekkid Men Stone Foxes Bodies Objectification

August 9, 2011


This is my body. I’m proud of it. I eat what I want, within moderation. I cook for myself, but I also have been known to frequent McDonald’s drive-thru. I work out when I can, and use running as a way to blow off steam, but I also think a perfectly nice way to spend a sunny afternoon is reading on the couch. I’m active, but I don’t try to fit into any particular size. I’m the daughter of a Marine sergeant with great legs and a high school track star beach babe with great legs. I have good genes, and I thank my parents for them regularly. I know what my body is capable of, as well as what it’s not. I’m 5-foot-3 on a good day, 127 pounds, and my measurements are 36-25-36. I wear size 6 jeans and am a 36C or 34D. I have curves in the right places. I love them, and I know because of them, I’ll never be a size 4. That’s not a priority to me. What IS is that I’m healthy, I have good body-esteem, and that I’m friends with my body. I love it, so I expect it to love me.

Thus far, it’s working for me.

XOXO
