Can we just take a minute to think about how, if I were to put up an identifiable nude picture of myself, on my own blog, taken in my own bathroom, it could come back around an ruin my life?

let’s just think about how, no matter what I do with my life - become a teacher, a lawyer, a scientist, a professor - a photograph of my naked body could render largely null and void the value that others would be willing to give to me.

It would not matter if I were a virgin - it would not matter if I meant them for a lover’s eyes only - it would not matter whether or not I did it for money - my own naked body could actually ruin my life and my work.

Can we just think about that? That is powerful, and not in a good way.

This is why I’m so amazed by and grateful for everyone who’s willing to put themselves out there (literally and figuratively), despite.

I had to reblog this because TRUTH, and it had never occurred to me. I see naked bodies all the time in my line of work, & I have long since forgotten that’s even not normal. In fact, maybe I have the right of it in my line of work: bodies ARE normal. Every body is normal, & none of them should have the power to ruin our lives or careers just by existing in a natural state.

And it’s only the naked female body, let’s remember, that can ruin a life. A naked dude would not find his life destroyed by a picture.
