The beauty of being a woman today is being able to think for self. Unfortunately, some women are threatened by this right of being and make a point to discourage other women from exercising this personal freedom.
Recently I got an email requesting my support to ban a particular XXX celebrity from acting in Houston since (the emailer’s justification not mine) this girl and girls like her were convoluting the message,”girls can perform any job” and for encouraging sex offenses by allowing themselves to be regarded as sex objects. Concerning the first argument of this emailer, is not this what women are demanding all along, to have the ability to work where they have a interest and capacity? I scatched my head in astonishment into the comments expressed by this woman believing she can make life choices for other women in order to keep them from making decisions she do not approve.
I call it hypocrisy because girls have been saying for quite a long time (a century and a half to be exact) they’re capable of working in any area of employment. However if they do and it do not fit into a principle of what others think are acceptable professions a annoying hissing begins. Personally I wouldn’t need to make my living on or off camera, but that is how I feel.

I’m not yeaing or naying “mature” professions, they’re legal and girls have the right to select them without harassment from other women if they so desire. The announcement strippers and XXX actresses would be why pedophilia and rapes happen is pardoning the predators. Besides, blaming these girls for offenses that have their orgins in antiquity, a time before Gentleman’s clubs and peep shows, is highly unfair. We can not allow misguided beings who unwittingly violate other people to evade being held accountable for their actions just so we can badger women holding undesirable tasks.
The emailer said that we, meaning that the community at large, must boycott this mature performer and many others like her to save future generations of women from being exposed to their own damaging messages. Funny, this exact same woman don’t appear to recognize those identical harmful messages are being encouraged each hour of the day on the radio, television, and yes within mainstream films.
I didn’t hear that this girl pledging to boycott Basic Instinct (Sharon Stone) or Monster’s Ball (Halle Berry), when they rolled into local movie theaters.
Do you wonder why?
I’ll tell you why. Quite possibly this lady may have it in her mind if the nudity and explicit sex acts are sanctioned by MGM or Sony Pictures the end product would be acceptable, which may be another hypocrisy point. If she wished to be consistent with her debate why did not she seek to ban all tv shows,films and videos that expose young girls to wanton sex acts and misleading messages? She would not because that would be considered ridiculous by the masses. Inspite of any criticism I might have of her goals I know deep down she means well but there are holes in her logic.
If the argument for boycotting is,”this stripper (and girls like her) let themselves be regarded as sex objects”, then I ask what is the difference between Halle being naked and sexually provocative for Sony Pictures and Ginger stripping for Pimps Gentleman’s Club on the shady side of town? Personally, I don’t see a difference between the two examples. Young women today are overwhelmed by sexual messages and barely any daily doses of favorable images of womanhood (girls that are emotionally and spiritually strong).

Do we actually have the ability to keep someone from lusting after another (seeing them as a sex thing )? The answer is no! My suggestions for this lady are, make a difference with another generation of women by living for instance, permitting younger girls to see her confidence exuding from her person. Secondly, she must make a point to explain to those young females just how important it is to respect their bodies but not be summed them up, they all have more to offer this world than just external beauty.
Thirdly, she needs to allow different women the right to create their on roads through life, does not matter if she believes those streets are morally unsound or not, allow women to choose for themselves. In brief, boycotting girls for taking advanatage of the God-given right, to consider themselves isn’t the solution. Again, it doesn’t matter whether their choices seem to be bad ones, the mere fact they have the ability and right to consider themselves should be respected. Motivating girls to acknowledge and cherish every part of who they are, emotionally, spiritually, and yes will leave a wonderfully undeniable heritage for the next generation of girls.
