Talk About Pussy Power

If we take the time to look at the roles of women from 2-3 centuries ago. Nothing but the cuts of their clothes has changed. Women have always played the submissive role. Catering to their husbands at all times and performing all the duties of their household.

Therefore, females have perfected this role as an important accessory to men. In today’s society they are not obligated nor forced [in most cases] to be video vixens, porn stars, or strippers. It allows females to make their own choices and allowing their freedom of expression/individuality.  In Jacki Wilson book, The Happy Stripper: Pleasures and Politics of the New Burlesque, she expresses some of positive aspects of such jobs, “enjoy the pleasures of the city, of fashion, of earning money, of make-up, flirting, of enjoying one’s body and the attention of others, whilst also acknowledging a resistance to and a wariness of this very same system” (Wilson, 176).

When it’s written like this, what girls wouldn’t think about investing their time and body’s into such lifestyle. It allows girls to feel beautiful and appreciated. Putting make-up, dresasing up, and getting your hair done is part of being a female. Therefore, there are no obstacles in living this type of lifestyle.

Many argue that on the bright side of such lifestyles, females become icons to many younger girls; celebrities such as Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Kaylin Gracia just to name a few. Younger follow their trends, their behaviors, and even their habits good or bad. Is this how we want our society to be forever?

So as many will say, that females have it easy. All they have to do is look cute to get what they want. Video vixens and strippers take off some extra clothes to emphasize their curves and just look good on camera or in front of their audience. In contrast, men have to compete and actually work for theirs. Wouldn’t you say women have it better?
