We talk about women rights and we say that men should show more respect to women.  However it is apparent that some women have no respect for themselves.  Some feel there is nothing wrong with stripping or selling their bodies.  They feel it is okay to do these things to make a living.  Of course this type of behavior is nothing new; the difference is that in times past women engaged in these activities would keep it a secret from their friends and family.  Now it is as if it is something to brag about.

The thing is that society is accepting and rewarding this kind of behavior and therefore women feel it is not something to be ashamed of anymore.  Porn stars are becoming celebrities so what’s the big deal?  But does this make it okay?  Maybe given all the publicity young girls now think it is okay.  There is s case of a young woman who came to this country to attend college.  She started college but have dropped out and now she is working as a stripper.  She keep posting about her newly found profession on face book.  It is as if she has gotten a degree and she wants the world to know about it.

Recently there was a video by Justin Timberlake on YouTube.  In this video called ‘Tunnel Vision’ there were girls performing in the nude.  They were naked while he remained fully clothed throughout the video.  The video was banned briefly from YouTube but is now back on it. I see no reason for nudity is this video but as long as women put themselves out there as commodities which can be bought these kind of things will continue to happen.

Women if you want to get respect it has to begin with you respecting yourselves.  Stop allowing men to use you in this kind of degrading manner because of the end of the day they will consider you cheap and they will have no respect for you.  You have the power to say I will take part in your video but I will not degrade myself and I will not strip. In Times Square on the fourth of July two women were seen in wearing nothing but body paint.  Was this really necessary?  There is a time and a place for everything.  Women if you want men to respect you start respecting yourselves!  You are not commodities; therefore do not give men the impression that you can be bought!
