Women don’t have to be “modest” to be respected. – Aly Raisman
Told to Sports Illustrated, and those words rang so true to me. I’m so sick of other people imposing their ideas on others. Especially here in Utah. There are so many photos I wish I could post, but since I live in UT where their ideal teacher looks something like June Cleaver and parents can’t seem to find a new hobby besides stocking me, I am forced to conform to their standards.
All while “supposedly” teaching the youth the importance of practicing acceptance of diversity and individuality.
All while “supposedly” teaching the youth the importance of practicing acceptance of diversity and individuality. Don’t get me wrong there’s never been a complaint about the way I dress. I am very professional when it comes to working. However, you may notice that I do not have my name posted on social media and there’s a reason. I don’t want to be searchable. However, I do keep it public as a freelance model that’s how I book jobs. But god forbid that somehow a student stumbles upon my page and sees me in a one-piece bathing suit, lingerie or maybe topless but still covered. How I would poison their poor innocent minds. I can’t help but think that the middle school and high school students that are on social media are exposed to way more than what I have posted.
So I am here to take a stand in my tighty whites shouting that I do not find breasts, hips, butts, curves offensive that professional women can be sexy, and should still be respected! Stop with the moral judgment, especially other women! We need to lift women up not tear each other down.
A beautiful sexy woman CAN be powerful.
I am working hard to be accepting of my body, to love my body, despite how society tells me I should look. I am proud of my body and find nothing wrong with wearing as much or as little as I want. We are all individuals with very different beliefs. I do not believe that sexy, powerful women are unprofessional. I find shaming women for their bodies wrong. I respect people who are religious and find the female form shameful. But understand those are your views that should not be imposed upon me.
I am proud of my body.
A beautiful sexy woman CAN be powerful. She can be intelligent. She can be a leader. Beauty and sex appeal do not have anything to do with how professional you are. How much or how little of yourself you want to show the world does not define you!
A beautiful sexy woman CAN be powerful. She can be intelligent. She can be a leader.
Just my thoughts though…
My iPhone took all these photos. The photographer must not have liked these as much since he decided not to edit and distribute them. However, I ended up loving the natural, pure unedited photos.
Hope you enjoy as well.
