Yesterday I said that I felt it is disrespectful when there are rules for women to cover their whole body. But I feel the same when I see many advertisements in which women are displayed nearly naked to sell something. I feel hurt when I see that people treat a woman as a thing or that a woman does that to herself. If you see the media, TV channels and the whole advertising world you will see in what way they present women and the body of a woman. They have a certain standard figure and rules how a beautiful woman should look like. All those models and actresses have this figure and everybody should follow this example otherwise they can feel that they are not beautiful.
A big business world is advertising this and many women who do not fit in these parameters feel depressed, guilty and not beautiful. Why is the body of a woman a subject of showing or selling? You can see that even articles like shaving lotion for men are advertised by a woman but you will not see that a man does advertisement for tampons. This happens because people want to see the naked body of a woman and this is how even those products sell although she doesn’t have to do anything with it. This often happens with women and I do not understand in this world why it happens often that a woman is seen like a thing. In some way I also feel that women are responsible for this, too. Why do they participate in this race for beauty and join this competition? Why don’t they respect their body and accept themselves as they are? Please love yourself and your body, you are beautiful as you are!
