Art Form Of The Female Body

The human body has been seen as a scientific wonder and an art form since the begining of human history… I celibrate this in my boudior photography by posting it on this blog and on my facebook for all to see.. just as I do the rest of my art and my writing.. yet to some I have been judged as a slut or being slutty..and even worse as a prostitute..showing these photographs as a way to lure men and to gain attention in a negative way..

It seems that even though the body has been used to celebrate and to create works of art for hundrends of years..there are still some that still do not grasp or understand the concept..

I think it is a shame that I feel then need to even write and publish this post.. it is a shame that I need to explain any of this to anyone..especially grown and educated adults..

I know there are many people that will read this that don’t need to..as you not only grasp the concept as the body as art but are open and free minded enough to be who you are and express yourself freely..You are the ones who will feel this sense of sadness with me about those who do not understand and can not see the beauty and the freedom in the art form of the human form..

It is a same that we have not come as far as we think in censorship..as there have been way to many… who have labeled me a slut, a whore, a tramp… and a bad mother for my pole dancing class, bourlesque dance, boudior photography, my writing and my art..as they see my dance and photography as slutty.. my writing as being to raw and real.. and my art taking time away from my children.. or seeing all of my interest and passions as taking time away from my children..

As far as women’s rights, and artistic freedoms..we have not come as far as we think..

I can only hope..that people like me..( there are many ) keep standing their ground and living their dreams and passions.

Were would we be without the freedom fighters.. the councilors, the life coaches, the body builders who see their own bodies as art..and use food and medicine..and physical fitness to scuplt their own form.. were would we be without the perfomers..the artist, the actors, the singers and the dancers… were would we be without those who dare to put beauty into the world..those politicians that dare to change the world for the better like JFK and Martin Luther King?

Were would we be without the spirit of freedom?

    It’s a shame your so right that people always jump to judment. It really bothers me all the comments that people write saying you are un attentive to your children because you do things for yourself. How many people spend 24 hrs a day entertaining thier children and do nothing for themselves or thier spouse.You have no signifigant other right now so its just you and your babes. You have 2 in school full time and one at home with you. my impression is you include your yougest in most of your activites so where is the neglect or what everyone wants to call it. So your writing your very good at it you can write a story on your blog very quickly. I;m sure you can get one typed out during one episode of a 1/2 cartooon. So no one sits thier child down to watch tv or play a game or play with his toys, kids need independence as well. The slut comments are down right unacceptable your proud of your body and have worked hard to become healthy how is that a bad thing. Good for you grace you have done awesome with how far you have come in such a short time. I would and am so proud of what you have done for you,you,you not for anyone else. So if that bothers others they need to look deep with in thier selves as to why this bothers them so much. How does it affect them that you have taken this healthy step in your life.I personally love your pics and have always wanted to do something like that. I think there are very tasteful and very “Beautiful” You look awesome……………. Stay strong Grace and dont let others try and bring you down to there un happiness. Block the ones that have issues and forget about those people, there not friends. Keep writing and stay focused on you and your children and your wants and needs and what makes you all happy not what others perceive your happiness and life you should be… Love & Light!! Andrea
