It’s no secret that I have an obsession with – even a fetish for – women’s breasts. Some of this is, indeed, sexual. Afterall, my bi-sexuality leans 90% women so it’s ingrained in who I am. But part of my obsession is that breasts are treated with misogynistic inequality. In many places in and out of Second Life women must cover thier torsos when men are not required to do so. To me the eunequal treatment is a lack of maturity. If someone can’t handle the sight of a woman’s breasts, what other problems do they have?
Like skin color (AKA, race). You don’t have to be on Twitter or Facebook or other social media to have seen the rash of people behaving badly when they see a person of color. Here’s the most recent example I’ve seen:
One of my first thoughts was “I’m embarrassed to be white.” Nearly every instance I’ve seen of this sort of abuse involves someone white being stupid. White pride, huh? Does someone have to work at being white? And is this how they practice? This lady probably needs more practice as she’s driving a Japanese car.
In Real Life (iRL) I’m a pasty white Irish girl, about to turn 30 and giving into gravity. I wish my iRL boobs were as perky as my SL ones*. But moreso lately I wish I could be polychromatic. Above I’m wearing Lumae’s Eirtae T9 Java Freckles but in shorthand I call it Chocolate. When i’m not in the mood to be my usual dark blue (Lumae’s Adore Aegean skin) or another color I usually wear this skin rather than one of my several Caucasian skins. Just not comfortable being white any more.
If only I could color-shift in Real Life as I do in Second Life.
