Keira Knightley Poses Topless

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.

Women Shouldn’t Have To Wear Makeup

So I am sort of a feminist. I mean, I have never thought about it until over the last few days, but I believe in equal rights, I believe in equal pay, equal opportunities, so how am I not a feminist? I also know I gained a good few of my followers from my previous posts about women, and how they are degraded in everyday life, so I thought I would continue the trend with todays post about why women should not have to wear makeup.

Women are forced to wear makeup in todays society. It is literally compulsory. If you don’t you are seen as ugly by most other women and men. It is just how the world works. It shouldn’t be this way, but it is. Society has engrained this idea of the ‘perfect’ women with her hourglass figure, highlighted features, and perfect skin. This isn’t the perfect women. Why? Because there is no perfect woman. In fact, what is seen by society to be the perfect woman is perhaps as far from perfect as you can get.

Let’s think. To achieve and maintain this ‘perfect’ image you need to starve yourself most of the time, or binge eat. You need to draw around or on your face with a pen for no real good reason, you need to add color to your skin, again for no reason, and finally you need to burn your hair into a style seen as attractive using straighteners or curlers.

What on earth made people think that is attractive? Whoever invented makeup is stupid. When I went on my first date with my current girlfriend I actually said to her ‘don’t wear makeup because I want to see your natural beauty’. Of course, she refused, but she refused because she doesn’t want the judgemental eyes of society thinking she is unattractive when in actual fact, if you have the guts to go out of your house with no makeup on, that means you have confidence in your natural beauty, and you don’t need to go out in a mask of makeup.

So ladies, why not go out with no makeup on, and show people yourself? And men, why not appreciate your girlfriends real looks, instead of her fake looks? If you tell a girl she is beautiful with no makeup on, I think that is one of thr biggest compliments you can give a girl.
