Hypocrisy isn't not being true to others, it's not being true to oneself. We derive our own integrity from our ability to fulfill our desires as long as we do not inflict harm on others. This takes a lot of courage and challenges many traditions that only serve to achieve social stability through the destruction of individuality. That's why I think that the concept of humble modesty, in which one becomes untrue to oneself, and denies himself/herself the right to be a thinking individual, just as nature meant us to be, is among the most evil of concepts.
Modesty is another social game that we are supposed to play. It is an act of self-betrayal and self-sacrifice. We are nothing but ourselves, but when we suppress ourselves for the sake of the whims of others we lose everything. Social acceptance is not worth sacrificing one's beauty or one's integrity.
When we sacrifice ourselves it simply is like dying. All that is left within us becomes a desire to suppress others' ambitions and desires, then we are forced to lead miserable lives in which the adulation of others becomes the sole reason of our existence. It can't be called existence, for a person with a dead self doesn't exist, a person with a dead self morally dissolves, in a slow and nasty process of moral putrefaction.
Beauty is about being true to and loving oneself. It's about integrity. That's why beautiful models look that happy. Look into Peta Todd's eyes, you will find joy, a sense of being glad for being alive. This is true beauty, pure and simple. Only those who are true to themselves can enjoy being alive, and therefore can be beautiful.
Peta Todd's nudity isn't the key to her beauty, it's just a byproduct. Her beauty isn't about her being nude, it's about her being who she is, and not being ashamed of that.
Beauty represents power. It represents freedom. Freedom from the influence of the society and its constant pressure for conformity and mediocrity. That's what makes beautiful women so threatening, they represent all the beautiful values of humanity. The values that, when discovered, helps us realize the beauty of life.
How often can we experience something great? Something that helps us know and realize our true potential, our own power, our own values, our own beauty? It takes courage to experience such a thing, to be enshrouded in its light. I think that's why beauty is so vilified by all those who worship mediocrity, who abhor individuality, and who hate freedom. It helps us break free from that cycle of slavery.
It is true that you become a slave to others when you mindlessly submit to their whims and rules. It is indeed dangerous when someone starts a rebellion by simply discovering her/his freedom and by showing everyone the superiority of having those unique human values, the values that we have learned to hate.
A simple smile showing the benevolence of it all is dangerous. Someone admiring that smile is even more dangerous. It is funny that a bold message need not be hidden in order to be invisible. Beauty has such a message, a message that many people just can't see.
Try to throw all that you've been told about nude women behind you for a second and take a simple look at a picture capturing an instance of beauty. That sort of empowering generosity is not evil, it's human. It's a true shame that we now consider ourselves evil.
According to the description of this gallery from BodyInMind, they believe that Peta Todd's bust is one of the things that makes her beautiful and call the idea of super thin supermodels an attack on real beauty.
I disagree with their first claim and partially agree with the second, the problem is that I don't find big breasts that attractive, especially when big breasts here means having prominent breasts and a 20 inches waist, it doesn't sound very healthy. Sure breasts are one of the special characteristics of female bodies, but too much attention makes them lose their charm.
Peta Todd is very beautiful, but that's not because she has big breasts, but, rather because she's graceful and indeed charming.
I hope that you will enjoy this free Body in Mind gallery of Peta Todd.
"Zoe McConnell is one of the most popular page 3 models in the U.K. So we were surprised when Peta Todd's agent suggested Zoe to shoot Peta Todd's next several sets for Body in Mind. But after seeing Zoe's work with Peta we know we made the right choice. A lot of models fail to make the transition to photographer, but Zoe McConnell is the exception. Her natural talent is obvious at a glance and she has clearly put in the time needed to learn her craft. Not only does she know how to pose her models and get dramatic shots, but as a woman she is able to relax her subjects and get more intimacy and spontaniety from them. Zoe knows how to make a real woman beautiful, without tons of make-up or hoaky props. We suppose in that sense, it takes one to know one. Which is why we think Zoe McConnell will be one of the greats. And so will this set of Peta."
BodyInMind seems to want to have a collection of all the beautiful page 3 girls, and to be honest, I don't mind that at all as all the images of those models are indeed very beautiful and professional. I am not sure, but I believe this is the first post-pregnancy photoshoot and as you can see Peta Todd is still very fit and beautiful.
Let's all enjoy Peta's beauty from BodyInMind.
