I would guess many people are quick to sexualize pictures like these. Directly refer to it as "sexy" and maybe vulgar?
To me this picture well portraits the features in my physique that underlines the feminine lines muscles can creates. It shows components in my physique that I work hard on accomplishing, the 'murves'(muscles creating curves)✨
On this note👉🏽, I had a conversation with my mother today I wish to share with you. I told her about a nightmare I had where people were secretly taking pictures of my naked body and leaking them online and how devastated I felt in my dream. And my mothers response was so beautiful. She said "Well what if that happened to you though? What would be so disastrous? It is only a body, you are so much more than that. Your skin does not define you and so it would say nothing about your character."
You all know my view on this, I have rambled about it numerous times, but to hear my mother - a woman in her 50's, who grew up in a tiny town called Karlskoga dominated by conservative thinking, that she with such clarity and absence of hesitation told me this. How my heart expanded with pride and gratitude💖. It is just a tragedy how much pain, insecurity, and shame is put on the human body and our naked skin. And it is straight out ignorant. I am not saying that we should never think of sex or run around with our genitals out in the open but I wish that we could think one step further and at least remove the shame of it, and possibly try to expand our attitude towards seeing the beauty of the body beyond sex AS WELL.
I do still believe that our bodies can reflect a small part of our character in the way we take care of the shell we live in our entire lifetimes. But how we care for it doesn't always show visually for the bare eye. And we need to separate ourselves as beings from the body we live in, instead of how it is now where the appearance seem to be judged and matter more than what lives inside of it.
My body, my temple, my artwork. That belongs to me fully, deeply and completely. To care for. To celebrate if I so wish to.
My body, my choices, and that can no one ever take away from me😊
