Maybe in the like, say, 50s or so, but then people started realizing that ink on your skin doesn't mean you collect welfare or beat your wife/children. c: Or at least some people realized it. Or are you going to tell me that Native American & indigenous people from tribes all over the world are white trash?
In my generation the only people who had tattoos were criminals, bikers, sailors and white trash. I don't give a flying fuck if you agree with me or not sambo, my values are mine and you will never change them,
Hey whats wrong with someone having sensual pictures taken of themselves,and how do you know she doesn't respect herself just from seeing a lewd photo of her?These pictures are not meant to be "classy" theyre models who get paid for their modeling work and im pretty sure they enjoy it too.A women's respect is not measured bywhat she wears but what she sees fit for her self,which means by doing something she enjoys(in this case modeling) means she has self respect.So stop being so immature towards the natural form of the human body.
you have a very common outlook on life because you are young... kids are either far left or far right on their social outlooks. you are far left, you feel that ethics do not exist, sexuality is fluid and should not be sanctified. etc. I am somewhere in the middle, and so are most people who have experienced more in life. the more you experience, the more your view on life shifts. i used to be like you, far left, no underlying purposes or rules, no guidelines, no judgements. but through my experiences, my failures, my successes, i have learned that it just simply isnt the case, we may fool ourselves into thinking that there is no such thing as a right or wrong, but that is against our entire being. Im not talking about an underlying rule for all humanity or anything, but to each individual there is a right and wrong, no matter how you approach life, that is fact.
So me personally, I have been with women who have done things like this, I have a few friends who do live cam shows on the weekends, one because they feel they need to, because they are no good at anything else, and the other one does it for fun. The one that does it for fun is a shallow shell of a human being who struggles constantly with self reflection, she has no respect for herself, and expects no one else to either, so she has been abused often. The one that does it for money is ashamed of her weekend life, so keeps it from most. But to her core she is a good person, she knows what she believes to be right and wrong, so she is strong for it.
So you ask, why do I say she has no respect for herself? 2 reasons, because anyone who acts like they do respect themselves are shallow and broken inside, but hide it under a bright and giggly disposition. and secondly, the very act of exploiting your sexuality effects you greatly. Trust me, as I said, i have life experience..... you will grow out of your perfect little "everything is good, nothing is wrong" bubble when you experience the true darker sides to life.
What a very long explanation for an example of closed-mindedness. Just because you were brought up with a specific, cultural set of values doesn't mean they can be applied to everyone. Take your "respect" for example. Respect synonymous with honor, yes, but it's also synonymous with admiration or pride/vanity. I've also known women who have taken nude photos, not because they lack respect for themselves, but because they do respect themselves and are comfortable with their bodies rather than ashamed of them.
And the bit about there being a right and wrong for every individual is a pointless statement. Essentially you're just saying that many things in life are subjective because everyone has their own opinion. That goes without saying, really. It's rather haughty of you to assume people will simply come to your superior system of beliefs and amusing that your argument for wisdom is age when the two obviously don't grow in tandem. There's no parallel trend for insight with age. But please, enlighten us with your experiences and show us this "true" darker side to life.
