The mean human lifespan is a mere 69.5 years- DO SOMETHING | atheist. humanist. blogger.
Posing in positions of power or coy sexuality, such images hold power- who has that power can shift. I posed in a nude calendar, fully exposed, and it was one of the most liberating and powerful feelings I've experienced; and when, on the big screen in Washington, DC- when Darrel Ray used my image in his American Atheist talk about sex & religion, and I stood up to acknowledge my participation in the project, I could not have been more proud and empowered, filled with positive congratulations from those around me. Whatever the pose, the purpose and message is important. If Knowles posed for a men's magazine that consistently presented women as equals, and not as toys, it would be a positive and empowering statement- but this one simply isn't.

There's something for everyone, and different people listen to different pleas. As long as you're not harming others, we're all doing our part to do whatever it is we aim to achieve (which can vary significantly).Glad to see continual self-examination, that's a VIRTUE to be valued.
