Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

You call ThaT Modeling?


Is it just me- or has the obsession with women using their bodies as capital for exploitation exceeded its wildest nightmare?
There isn't an arena to be found, in which women do not showcase their bodies, in addition to their ..ahem..talent.
Women dressing provocatively, even obscenely- in music videos, in film, in theatre, -in the Arts has become the norm.
Tell me how this newfound "LibertY" so gallantly encouraged by Society - does anything but reduce women yet again to ObjectS?
This affirms her femininity? This affords her PoweR?
Being on display , her body parts scrutinized, commented on by strange men, mocked?
"SexY" is powerful?...How have men and women been duped by this corrosive MytH which in essence leads to the reduction of flesh without spirit?
Have fathers come to believe that this is the inherent value of their daughters? Objects of pleasure and desire?
Funny, I always thought that is what renders her...PowerlesS. But maybe that's just me.

    we have to continue to MODEL and educate our own children with the hope that in due time there will be a realization about women and their REAL roles in society, family and relationships....
