That's a bit ignorant of yours. Camille posed naked for Richardson - a man known to have exploited models before. And flashing your boobs for a camera doesn't suddenly grant you woman power. Neither does it make you a feminist. How can you not see how alienated sex has become when it's portrayed like this? I find it distasteful that a woman is ready to expose herself like that for... what? Sales? But of course you would defend Camille on that, your fave has her fair share of those shoots too.
Terry Richardson is indeed one of the most controversial photographers to have ever existed, but what does this mean for shaming Camille? Is Camille being shamed because she posed for Terry Richardson or is it because this fandom has a tendency to obsessively hate women on things that if the boys had done they would have been given a free pass for? Is Camille being attacked over her body because of who took these photos or is it because she’s found herself involved with this God-awful fandom?
And what is it exactly that offends you about a woman posing nude in front of a camera, Anon? Does it make you uncomfortable? Does it make your skin crawl that a woman might decide to pose naked? Of course, it’s different when women are forced to do that, or women are being exploited or when women are objectified and pushed into a loop of “show flesh or you’re fired,” but your words here are implying much more, Anon. A woman feeling comfortable enough with herself and her body and choosing to express that through photography isn’t whoring off her body.
And it is absolutely within your right to find it distasteful or to not want to see it but that doesn’t make it okay to label it as looking for sales. Sales might be the result but that doesn’t mean that the woman doing it is doing it out of pure will to cash in on nakedness? I thought that was understood.
And as for Cheryl - unfortunately, yes, she was pushed into that loop because she was part of a manufuctured group that very soon had to respond to a certain standard to “sell”. Agreed. She’s never posed nude but there certainly are saucy pictures of her earlier years. But Cheryl was also very generally open about her sexuality and that came to bite her in the ass later on, when the media exploited it. But there are also pictures of her more recently where it is so clear that she is naked underneath a thin garment that covers her up - does that make her an attention-whore? That she feels comfortable in her own skin and within her own terms has decided to stand in front of a camera?
I just find it so hilarious that you dared make a reference to feminism when in your very next sentence you say “I find it distasteful that a woman is ready to expose herself like that”. What’s your point of view on men doing it, Anon? Where’s the rage for Liam posing shirtless and Harry doing the same?
Where’s the rage for these boys holding their dicks and grinding while singing on tour?
Not to say that there should be but I mean you all sure seem very offended by Camille holding her boobs.
Whether a woman chooses to expose intimate parts of herself to a camera for a purpose you are not aware of shouldn’t be this fandom’s concern, in my “ignorant” opinion. Cheryl being naked underneath and Camille posing nude for a camera isn’t a new phenomenon and nude photography, when not imposed on someone, can be artistic and beautiful in its rawness.
But I’m fairly certain the last thing this fandom should be concerned about is these women being okay with themselves. Maybe you should be more concerned with this fandom’s internalized misogynism shown in spades than trying to draw a invalid point about how Cheryl and Camille having had revealing photoshoots is the reason why the world has been alienated to sex.
