For this IWD I have one question. Now I know plenty was said about Miley Cyrus and her twerking of 2013 and how girls are sexualised from early on. Plenty of women before her have gone all sexy to show the world that they’ve grown up (Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera come to mind). Whether that’s a good thing or bad thing is a massive debate. Personally I love women’s bodies. Women can be sexy and sensual without coming off trashy; but that’s personal taste I suppose.
What I find curious is that Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines (complete with dodgy lyrics) or Justin Timberlake’s Tunnel Vision, has these bad boys show us they’ve grown up by having scantily clad ladies surround them while they remain fully dressed.
In the case of Timberlake, when you watch the clip, he’s not even in the same room as these nude women.
Hey fellas, how about you show us how you’ve grown up by not using scantily clad women to show us how much of a man you are. Are you nothing without the ladies? Is that how you measure your manhood?
All this says one thing to me, and it’s pretty obvious, ladies our sexuality and sensuality that our bodies are capable of has currency and it is worth A LOT. And I’m not saying you should hide it but just remember that you are powerful and fascinating. Do not forget.
