Jennifer Hawkins look is not necessarily perfect but is definitely attractive. Her appearance is in the elite category and the latest nude shots are natural and beautiful. That some people may get depressed over viewing them is as much about human nature as anything else. We are a society based on separation and competition. Because of this we often see life as creating winners and losers.
To my mind when people who look as beautiful as Jen are presented natural and with humility we should all feel better for viewing them. Once again the press and public are crying foul and saying that promoting such imagery is hurting them and their kids. In my opinion the hurt may be real but the reason for the hurt is much deeper and is connected to our basic human nature.
However this nature is not natural and certainly not empowering. We have always short changed ourselves by not looking deeply into our discomfort. I accept that many people may develop eating disorders and depression because they feel inferior in looks to someone like Jennifer Hawkins. It is easy to blame the proliferation of imagery of women who look like Jen. Far harder to look deeper and ask yourselves why viewing such beauty hurts so much.
In general I believe that the hurt in society is because we sell out on our own souls. As such we lack real emotional strength and get hurt easily. Then when we get hurt we try to attack an external reason rather than look deep inside for our own empowerment. In rational terms some people are born with the genetics to look better than most. Others are born with genetics to allow them to think at levels deeper than most. Then we have musicians and sports people who are born with enhanced ability.
In my opinion the best way for humanity to live in joy and freedom is to celebrate the elite in all aspects of life. Beautiful looking women are perhaps the most beautiful aesthetic of material life. However whilst we are empowered by the aesthetics of such things as beautiful sunsets and beautiful animals when it is another person we know to be beautiful many of us become victims. I am not supporting manipulation through air brushing or sexually suggestive poses. I am 100% supporting the presentation of beautiful looking people in graceful and transparent imagery.
Society is not in a good way and perhaps never has been. We are not very trusting and not very inspired with life. Censoring beauty or questioning it due to the hurt of some is not going to change this. Encouraging beauty and excellence on every level should inspire us to be the best we can be. As part of this ideal we should encourage ourselves to look deeply into any pain we feel when exposed to such beauty and excellence. Only when we understand the source of our pain will we become truly strong and healthy individuals.
Here in Australia one of our top models has posed nude without air brushing to raise awareness to how images are manipulated. The images have been questioned as she is an elite looking woman. Once again I see that society is reacting on the surface level rather than going deep for the real reason to their pain.
