Norman Mailer said of Marilyn Monroe:
8220 Her stomach, untrammeled by girdles or sheaths, stood out forward in a full woman’s belly, inelegant as hell, an avowal of a womb fairly salivating in seed–that belly which was never ever to have a youngster–and also her breasts stood out buds and burgeons of flesh over lots of a questing sweating moviegoer’s face. She was a cornucopia. She delighted desire for honey for the horn. 8221
And Elizabeth Hurley?s opinion:
8220 I’d kill myself if I was as fat as Marilyn Monroe. 8221
When I discovered Regular Mailer’s words in his bio of Marilyn it reminded me of the famous Hurley quote and also I assumed the contrast in between both views of this iconic appeal was fairly poignant and sad.
Hatred of a womanly body appears to be an usual scenario in our culture. Ladies are brainwashed into assuming they need to be as skinny as possible. We diet, workout, starve ourselves, judge each other harshly, and also spend our lives in starvation as well as desperation.
Meanwhile, males naturally love the lush, sexual, curvy women body. They want the soft, sexy bodies we females are born into.
Our natural bodies wear’t require rigorous dieting or starvation or plastic surgery or sculpting. We are each a perfect, special production and also the even more we approve and like our womanliness, the extra wonderful life feels.
The Hurley quote used to make me angry. Now it simply makes me unfortunate that we have found out to be so superficial and so imply to one another, and also to ourselves, with the ideas we have about the women body.
