Paris, daughter of the late Michael Jackson, has been posting censored topless photos on Instagram.
This led to a bit of trolling, apparently, which has led Paris to offer a more robust defence of naturism…
Nudism “started as a movement for ‘going back to nature’,” she wrote, “and was even called a philosophy”. It helps her connect to the earth and is a “beautiful thing” that does not have to be seen as sexual, she said.
“Feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it’s being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself.”
“The human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what ‘flaws’ you have, whether it be scars, or extra weight, stretch marks, freckles, whatever, it is beautiful and you should express yourself however you feel comfortable.
“If this makes some of you upset i completely understand and i encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but i cannot apologize for this in any way. it is who i am and i refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret.”
A remarkably positive defence of what are clear naturist, humanist, ideals. Best wishes to Paris for having the awareness to grasp the whole naturist idea and sum it up in a couple of well-worded, pithy sentences. You go, girl!
