This is rather a bold piece for me, but still I like it. I would be interested in knowing what you thought of it as well.
I didn’t choose to do this as just a form of flaunting my sexuality for the attention. It’s kinda complicated, but I felt it was a good way to represent alot of things that are important to me. My faith (the pentacle), love (my heart), the lace represents femininity, the bright color represents the love of beautiful things, creativity, and standing out from the crowd. The breasts, obviously do represent sexuality, but also my freedom to embrace it without fear of shame, guilt, or embarrassment Even in this day and age, women are made to feel that they must not do this, that they must oppress this side of them, and if they don’t, they are labeled as a whore, treated very badly, and not taken seriously. This is a disgusting double standard, that no matter how hard we try, we cannot seem to shake. Society as a whole needs to learn to respect women and treat them how they deserve to be treated, as they are… beautiful, intelligent, nurturing, valuable, unique, worthy EQUALS! This is how ALL people should be treated.
