I acknowledge I have read this information.
You may have noticed we put up promo shots yesterday. There is one missing this morning.
In this particular shot there is a body part of mine showing through wet cloth that certain parties saw fit to report their offense to facebook....
Now, you need a little context here... My daughter Frances has recently come under fire for posting shots of herself showing cleavage, and she was basically harranged by her elders into taking the shot down because that moral authority felt it inappropriate that a young woman of her age (13 years) should pose in such a manner.
I let her take this shot at me. She reported my photo to facebook... Ostensibly because of the "ew" she exhaled upon seeing it, but I think deeper than that, she, like they, felt it inappropriate that a woman of my age (36 years) should pose in such a manner.
I made a couple of notes before it was taken down:
1. I am NOT nude
2. It is perfectly legal for me to appear topless in Ontario, Canada.
Now, let's not get all excited and imagine me running naked down the street here.... this isn't what I'm talking about.
A widely practiced (and time tested) method of promoting one's self (and a large part of one's evolution as an artist) is exploiting (or exploring depending on your point of vew) your sexuality. Women (and men) since the dawn of time have been disrobing in the name of the muse....
I am no different.
I try and do it with taste, and conviction. I stay away from the obscene, the lewd... I am always veracious.
That facebook doesn't want my nipples on it's site is fine.... it's not my site.
That Frances doesn't wanna see my nipples is nothing new. She was the only one of my babies who rejected the breast after being offered the bottle... feeding time became so frustrating that I gave up the effort to win... it was more important to me she enjoy eating her meals without frustration than sate my biological functions....
Meh... boobs are boobs, and business is business.... and as her mother, it's more important to me she eat than I feed some higher moral ethos......
