Stripping off to Prove a Point

In the News

I am sure it is my age showing but I am getting mightily sick of people (women, twice this week alone) stripping off in order to get a point across or for publicity.

There would be a major outcry if men started doing this. More to the point, why are shows like gmb giving them air time?

I stripped off to get weighed accurately a few days ago... which reminds me that I've got to add that chemist's to the list of places I'm barred from.

there's no need to strip just to prove a point... unless it concerns the body in critical crucial way and it is of like body of evidence...

tinakittyjay you obviously haven't yet bumped into our resident chat comedian. He is pulling your leg!

I don't think it is a case of just 'I was told' it is having respect for your body and yourself. Today all we hear is: a woman can do as she likes with her body, her body her choice, body confidence and on and on.

When I grew up I don't remember any of this body shaming nonsense, it was accepted that we didn't all have the bodies of the screen goddesses and we had nothing to prove.

I know no one will agree with me but from a sexual point of view, woman have not gained equality but rather lowered themselves into the gutter of promiscuity. They used to be superior by not sleeping around and men respected them too. Now everyone is promiscuous (rare exceptions) and our children are constantly subjected to a world of violence, sex, drugs and all the other ills of society. Childhood innocence is a thing of the past.

It's a way of getting media attention for your cause. The tabloids and some current affairs TV shows don't need much of an excuse to show nude (albeit blurred) or scantily clad women and this gives them a legitimate reason to cover the story. The problem for the protesters is bystanders/viewers/readers are more likely to focus on their lack of attire rather than the issue.

Nowadays, it seems that all you need in order to become famous is an attractive body.

Not quite.........you apparently have to show it around the world on media platforms naked! No one feels shame anymore. Drug addicts, alcoholics, those who have multiple partners and so on are lauded and praised.
