I don't know if it's because of my pictures, but it seems that people think I'm easy to get with. Which is totally not the case! I've been single for years. There's a reason for that! What I look for in a person is not easy to come by.
When I upload revealing photos of myself, people quickly assume things. I'll start by saying this; I'm not like most people who see a body as a sex object. I can look at nudity and find beauty in it. Yes.. Even my own. If I'm sitting at my computer looking at revealing pictures of myself, I'm not thinking SEX! I'm thinking, "my skin looks really soft."
I don't understand why people make a big deal out of a body that everyone has. You would think by now people would be more accepting and more open to things. That's not the case. People have just become more perverse.
Everyone was born naked. There is nothing wrong with nudity. There is something wrong with how society looks at it. That instead of being respectful, they feel the need to criticize and put their hands on someone. And that somehow makes it "okay." Instead of people accusing the victims, society needs to teach people self control.
People may say that I don't respect myself. That I dress for people. That I take pictures for people. Honestly, how conceited can they get? I dress the way I do because it makes ME feel confident. I take pictures of myself and share them because it's a hobby. That does not mean I have lost respect for myself. I know that I am more than just my appearance. Aside from my emotions, I'm pretty damn awesome. And this journal entry is proof of that!
I can understand why people would think prostitutes have no respect for themselves. They go out and have sex with a lot of people they're not interested in. But if it's just me taking pictures, that's not a big deal. And it's sad when people make a big deal out of every little thing.
People may think all these crazy things about me, which is fine. Whatever. I'm still a 23 year old virgin. I'm saving myself for someone I truly love. You may see revealing photos, but that's all you're getting. I'm proud of who I am. I have plenty respect! When people change who they are to fit in, I remain as I am. And you know what? I take pride in that.
