War of the Genders

A confrontational soapbox for rants and politically incorrect manifestos regarding feminism, chauvinism, dating and gender issues.

You, the anonymous female reading this... what would you say if I asked you to get naked and show me your body or panties? What if I brought in a few perverts off the street to gawk at your nipples? Would that make it better? What if I paid you for this lovely show so we can all have some cheap entertainment next time we get horny?

Still no? Then here is my last offer: How about I bring in a few million of these men, I make you appear naked as part of a story, declare it an art film and aim a camera at you?

Considering the amount of movies, porn, theatre, sculptures, photography, advertisements, other forms of art and the sheer amount of nudity in all of these, I wouldn't be surprised if every third or fourth female that would slap me for asking to see her naked form had actually posed semi-naked or displayed her breasts for me on some stage or another. And even if I exaggerate, I can't help but wonder when I see a woman's behaviour in front of a camera...

Go figure.



You raise some valid points. However, I cannot help but shake my head reading them. The fact is that there are many modest girls who never posed before anybody. It's sad that men don't find us anymore. I suspect that it's not because we are hidden, or few. It's probably because the male attention is naturally directed towards the strippers.

My post clearly says that most girls haven't posed naked. The point was to show the hypocrisy in the girls that do remove clothing for art in refusing the same experience for individual men without a camera.

That's probably because nude art isn't personal to them. They don't get to look in the eyes of the people who buy the magazines, photos, or pictures. They don't know their names. They'll never meet them. It probably has a way to ease the natural sense of shame.

So the artist, cameramen, director and the hundred people on the movie-set don't look them in the eyes?

Also, I don't understand this logic. According to you, a woman would feel better about taking pictures of herself naked and sending them to me instead of stripping live. Assuming this is correct, how much do you want to bet that an actress who appeared nude on screen will not agree to send me nude pictures?

I just have to comment: I'm a female, and don't understand why any man or woman should be ashamed of their bodies. Everyone is naked under their clothing. Everyone has the same basic parts, barring the occasional mutation. The human body is beautiful. Why not let others appreciate it like they appreciate a beautiful landscape? The only difference I can see between a picture and in real life is that you have to trust a person in real life not to attack you if they are a stranger. But then, that goes for with or without clothes on.
Everyone is naked, whether they want to admit it or not. And no, I'm not a stripper or porn star, just a regular woman who is not ashamed of nakedness.

This was just an early rant. I dealt with the issue of nudity more seriously later.
