“Common excuses for not using women of color include them “not having the right look,” photographers “not knowing how to shoot women of color,” women of color being “uninterested in modeling,” or (and this is my all time favorite), “women of color look too sexual in lingerie.” Because seriously, what does that mean? As a woman of color who is proud of my ethnic identity, that is unacceptable. And it’s hurtful. No one wants to feel like they’re automatically less attractive because of the color of their skin. I know how things were back in the day. I know that Black women and Asian women and Hispanic women and Native American women were not most photographer’s first choice for models, but since when did past segregation become an excuse for present discrimination? After all, there weren’t many tattooed pin-up models back in the day either, but they’re everywhere now…and that’s a good thing.”—
Thank you to Tiara, the Merch Girl, for sharing my blog post with her fans.
i love you blog and it's sexy content. i'm a big fan of tights (pantyhose) and i find myself crossdressing whenever i can... especially when i looking through tumblr ;-)
what do you think of guys who crossdress? best, clive
Thanks Clive, an anonymous reader asked a related question: “What about guys wearing stockings all the time? My wife does not like me to wear but I just love the feel and looks of the stockings on my legs,” so I’ll answer both questions now.
I’m on record multiple times saying that I think people should wear whatever they like, and since I’m a big lover of hosiery myself, I can understand the desire to feel the sensation of nylon on your skin. I also think women have better clothes than men, so can’t argue with anyone’s desire to wear them. We win in the shoe department alone.
I’ve helped male friends buy panties, stockings and dresses and have found their enjoyment really fun. I do think if crossdressing is causing a problem in your relationship, it’s really worth working with your partner to help her understand why you like to do it and that it’s not a threat to your marriage. Ultimately, I don’t believe giving up your individuality to keep a relationship is healthy or even plausible. Being consistently honest and keeping the lines of communication open will probably get her to a point where she understands and will be much better for your relationship in the long run.
