A Woman's Beauty Fully Dressed


There is so much more depth and meaning to a woman than the sum of her nude parts. A real woman is made up of strength, ambition, pride, courage and so many other attributes of character.

A woman is not just breasts, thighs, buttocks and vagina. A woman's figure is not just a compilation of titilating images to be displayed for the fancy of man under the guise of art.

A woman is about more than just what she offers with her clothes off. A woman is about sacrafice, light, life and giving. She is nurturing, she is grand and she is whole.

A woman's allure is present at all times. She is not just a subject about which fantasies are born. She is all-encompassing, She is complicated and virtuous. She is a mind that never stops and a body that brings life.

A woman is power. A woman is strength and conviction of her ways. She is loving and caring toward others and forgiving of man's trespasses against her.

But above all else, a woman is not an object. She is not just art. She is real and she is beautiful...fully dressed!

    You are one of these great women that you speak of in your powerful essay. You are strong, brilliant minded and funny. I could not agree with you more. As your brother, you know the person that I am and how much I appreciate people for their character. Keep up the great work!
