Hey Kre addicts, if you’ve noticed I am making it more fabulous and personal now by calling you all Kre addicts and not just fans…you’re family! Also thanks Kre addicts for the 281 likes on this picture on Instagram!
Okay, so that Kre business aside let’s get into boobs! Oops, I mean gender equality, my bad! Lol, I’m such a lesbian! I just watched a cool movie on the Free The Nipple campaign on Netflix. I think it’s going off of Netflix soon though. If you haven’t heard it is/was an activist movement for women to go topless just as equally as men can. It is actually in fact a law in a lot of states including here in NY, but a lot of people don’t know about it. It starred Lina Esco who was also in Tove Lo‘s music video, Fairy Dust. I can’t wait until part two, Fire Fade comes out as well! I love how in the video, they were lovers/Tove Lo‘s alter ego! Free The Nipple, the movie also starred Lola Kirke who is Jemima Kirke‘s sister. They look so much alike, too. Jemima is from Girls which recently ended on HBO, if you didn’t know. In the movie, I felt like Esco and Kirke had this sexual tension the whole time and they even kissed once, but nevermind. It was interesting, the people who were in the movie were in the campaign in real life as well, I believe. Esco directed it too and stuff and they were all doing it at the same time. Here’s a link up of some stuff about it all (don’t be alarmed if you see boobs-it’s legal!): https://www.nytimes.com/video/fashion/100000004162595/free-the-nipple.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abZ0PXadpB0 (Tove lo‘s video and beware of an explicit end scene and weird sexual dancing or whatever)
Oh and here’s a Tove Lo article: http://www.teenvogue.com/story/tove-lo-vagina-tattoo
The article is interesting and sums up why I love her song, Lady Wood so much. It is not a shame to not have balls like men. Hence to be “complimented” with saying wow you got balls, like saying you are strong and brave or whatever is actually an insult as Tove Lo put succinctly. We don’t have balls, we have Lady Wood! Btw, we don’t always have female equivalents to all of the slang words that men have as well and that needs to change.
Here’s the campaign’s website: http://freethenipple.com/
It is just awful how body parts are examined so much, when really we all have the same bodies, really. Where men have less adipose tissue on their chests, we have more adipose tissue there, where women have less tissue at the groin, men have more. See, it’s all a give and take. Where men are lacking on the chest area, they make up for it in the groin, where women are lacking in the groin area, we make up for it in the chest area. Now I said lacking just to prove a point, I don’t actually think anything is lacking on anyone’s bodies. Women have killer vulvas/vaginas and men have killer chests all just on a human level of interest, not even sexual attraction wise. And into the realm of sexuality, everyone is attracted to differing things on bodies, it doesn’t mean one is better than another. It’s just different. People like different extremities or some don’t even care and are attracted to anyone. We all need to talk about things more that are kept under the rug or that seem taboo. Also, just to put it out there that also trans/non binary people can have body parts one may associate with the opposite gender, but identify as such either because they haven’t transitioned or they just feel how they feel with their body parts or any other reason. But here I am mostly talking about cis gendered people, but trans/non binary people are always apart of the conversation. It seems like people like to talk about certain things and more anyway. And it seems that everyone does want and doesn’t want things kept private/sexual all at the same time all the time. Especially women’s bodies, our bodies are scrutinized so heavily. It is crazy how in ancient Greek times, everyone was naked and other times like in historic paintings most people were naked. People were athletes and ran naked because bodies were to be cherished, not put down. Although, women’s bodies were probably always scrutinized and sexualized all of the time still. Women, we all are just as sexual, just as strong, just as important as any man. We are also just as stupid, just as nasty and rude and weak as any man. Women should not fear the patriarchy, we should be empowered by our feminine, butch, fertile selves and tell men how they should act as opposed to the other way around. Men should fear the matriarchy! Oh and btw, I keep saying vulvas/vaginas when the vulva is the whole thing, the vaginal hole, the urine hole, and the pleasure inducing clitoris. So whenever people say vagina, we don’t actually know specifically what they mean. That’s just a fun fact. Did you know also that there may be a vulva museum? http://www.afterellen.com/people/537039-world-getting-first-vagina-museum
Also here’s another article just about the clitoris http://www.afterellen.com/columns/530599-cliteracy-stay
All of these things should be talked about more and are starting to be.
You can join in the movement on the Free The Nipple website, p.s. I probably won’t be seen stripping except in the comfort of my own home, but it’s good to know I have the option if it ever comes up in public.
