Package Praise and Slut Shaming

Some interesting images have recently been published of a thoroughly exposed Nick Jonas. If you haven’t seen them already, here you are!

Many say “YUMMO!” Others say, “Too much!!!” But overall Mr. Jonas and his Calvin K’s have gained a very positive reaction from the media.

My thoughts?

This is a typical example of the double standard for men and women are are sexualized in today’s media. Women who try to proudly flaunt their body and sexuality are either slut shamed or criticized for not being sexy enough. A man, Nick Jonas, flaunts his goodies and the world gives them a big thumbs up because men are supposed to be horny and sex driven, etc.

That is NOT to say that Nick should be equally “man-slut shamed” for his photos. That is not what gender EQUALITY is about. Good on him for being proud to expose himself in this way! I salute anyone, male or female, who feels confident enough to show the world their body and flaunt their sexuality. It is a beautiful and perfectly natural thing, in every form.

As always, be proud of who you are! And Happy Monday 🙂
