A collection of thoughts, views and opinions. I have a habit of speaking my mind. If you are offended by views that don't always represent your own, I'd suggest you turn back now.

Expect honesty and occasional nudity. When I say occasional, it's fair to assume I mean frequent. If you have no desire to see my willy at some point, I'd suggest not reading! I'm not ashamed of who I am or what I am about. Apply the same to yourself and embrace you. That's the message I'm trying to spread. Don't judge. 

Every now and then, I feel compelled to write something that for some, is controversial. Society tells us that, in order for us to be socially accepted, we must adhere to the rules set. We shouldn't question others on their actions or opinions despite knowing they are in the wrong because, if we do, people turn off. People think that you're a trouble maker if you don't comply, they shun you. 

Darkness. I close my eyes and that's all I see. I open them and I'm consumed.

Exposure. It's a funny word and one that can mean many different things. However, when we think of the word exposure, the first thing that comes to thought is the idea of nudity. And whilst the idea of exposure can mean nudity, for some, the idea of exposure is allowing others to see their insecurities. We all portray an image of how we want others to view us and most of us put out a false exterior to hide what lies within. It's human nature and I'm no different. THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NUDITY. 

 I talk a lot about body image and the way society tells us how we should be but one of the things that really bugs me, and something that isn't talked about too often, is censorship. Censorship is a funny thing and the very nature of it brings conflict between what we feel we should be and what we feel others should see us as. It allows us to feel outrage against others and it also opens up the door for contradiction. Parents are forever telling their children that they should accept the way they are. 

Body Shaming. It's a term most of us have heard about and the majority of us have experienced at some point in our lives yet it is still something that continues to plague society. Whether it be the hurtful comment left on a picture shared via social media or a derogatory comment shouted at someone in the street, the issue is still very much the same.

Bodies. They're a weird thing. Although we're all born with one, the majority of us fear them. We fear our own and we fear the bodies of others yet we don't really understand why. If we're not fearing, we're mocking and at some point in time, society told us this was acceptable. Those that don't mock, stand back and portray another form of fear. A fear of being judged in the same way of those that they witness. It's become a modern dilemma. Do we intervene and stand up for those that are being mocked because of the way they look and face the possible repercussion of being mocked ourselves or do we stand back in the shadows, watching and becoming a part of that judgement process?
