Tomorrow morning, or I should say in few hours from now, I am going to my first job interview... well, ever, and as I toss and turn in my bed unable to sleep due to anticipation and anxiety, one thought fills my head:
Why do male celebrities not receive the same level of ridicule, derision, scorn, shame, criticism, and defamation of character when they pose topless or totally nude that women receive when they posed topless or nude?
What do Sylvester Stallone, Denzel Washington, Samuel L Jackson, Jackie Chan, Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt, James Garner, Clint Eastwood, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Wahlberg, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, all have in common?
They have all posed nude in either magazines or movies.
In fact I challenge anyone to pick an actor and see if they can't find any nude photos or clips of them. As I watch the show Lost, which was full of hunks, I noticed every male actor in the show had at least one shirtless scene, and a lot had scenes in which there was a lot of hint that they were completely nude.
Topless men are in every TV show or movie, even the G rated ones, and they are as common place as commercial product placements are.
Women often write about how much they drool over Jon Hamm, the star of the feminist show Mad Men, and he often prances about the show topless, in only shorts, or completely naked.
Does anyone question the integrity, qualifications, decency, shame, intelligence, or career of Jon Hamm?
Of course not, but Olivia Munn is deemed unfit for the Daily Show because she posed non-nude for Playboy, and Miley Cyrus is labeled a tart because she gave racy, non-nude, poses to a major non-porn magazine.
Why the double standard?
It is easy to find pictures of Arnold Schwarzenegger exposing his dick to a crowd, but the man was elected governor of the most populated state in America twice (and elected as a Republican no less).
If Barbara Boxer had exposed her vulva to a crowd and a camera, does anyone believe she would ever have had a chance of getting elected to state-wide public office?
Of course not, and again; why the double standard?
Because men jack-off to pictures and videos of nude women, and... hell, I'll probably jack-off to a picture of a nude woman to relieve tension and stress after I finish this blog post (the wife is asleep, so I'm not going to wake her up for sex).
And society is programmed to believe that every woman who poses nude or topless is doing so intentionally to provide men with jack-off material.
Why do we hold it against women because they - supposedly - pose nude to provide jack-off material?
What's wrong with jacking-off to pictures of nude women? I admit I do it, and I'm sure 99% of straight men (including your father and the president of the United States) also jack-off to pictures of nude women.
Men feel ashamed that they jack-off to pictures of nude women, and women resent men for jacking-off to pictures of other nude women.
Masturbation is completely safe, totally free, a great cure for headaches and insomnia, and the best stress relief.
But most importantly, not all women are posing nude, or semi-nude, to provide jack-off material; they are posing nude for the same reason men pose nude:
They got the goods.
If you have the goods - the goods god, hard work, discipline, good eating habits, and a hell of a lot exercise, gave you - why not flaunt them and make a lot of money?
And why would we ridicule, deride, scorn, shame, criticize and defame anyone for making money off of the goods god, hard work, discipline, good eating habits, and a hell of a lot exercise, gave them?
We certainly don't ridicule, deride, scorn, shame, criticize and defame men for flaunting their goods.
