So a few days ago a magazine came out with a real, unedited photo of Keira Knightley showing her breasts. Yes, all you crazy perverted men out there, it actually really happened.
What she did was a statement. A statement about how much photos are edited to make people look different to real life. She said that she would pose topless, if the photo was in no way edited, or manipulated, or had an effects added onto it at all. It was to stand up against all of the false imagery in the world.
I must say however, looking at the photograph, the photo isn’t perfect, no, but it also is edited slightly. The image is black and white, which immediately takes out some of her ‘imperfections’ . You will not be able to see if, for example, she had a rash, has marks on her skin. You can’t really see anything like that.
I think the main thing she was aiming for was to tell people ‘No I don’t have big boobs. I am me, I was born this way, I don’t care.’. It is very bold for her to stand up and say this, and it makes me rank her alongside Emma Watson in this years list of people who have stood up for themselves, and women. They have also helped try and make people realize how corrupt, and terrible our society is.
In this world, we encourage women to become super skinny. We make people anorexic. We make people not feel comfortable with themselves because of there weight, breast or penis size, hair, tattoos, face, legs, waist, hips, literally everything is criticized in this world. There is no perfect person. Everyone is unique, and individual. People need to realise this, and stop acting pathetic.
We are who we are. Be proud of yourself.
