Obsessions and Interests

2 notes

The greater issue is just that, in this country, it is okay to do terrible things to the human body, but it’s not okay to do beautiful things to the human body, things that are healthy, happy, and sex positive. We live in a society that’s terrified of human sexuality. You look at these crazy restrictions on birth control, what should be covered and what should not be covered. Very conservative people are looking to essentially de-pleasure sexuality for women. It’s about preventing a human being from enjoying being a human being. But it’s a societal issue as opposed to a network television issue. As a horror fan, I appreciate the double standard in some way because it lets me do all of these ridiculous thing to the human body. I’m taking advantage of the double standard. But it’s ridiculous because we should be celebrating sexuality, but people are just so terrified of it.

"Imagine; I used to have really long blonde hair, always wearing heels, lots of make-up. I had been someone who was highly feminised and had chosen to look that way, partly because I was 6ft 3in but also I was into that aesthetic. I knew it had to be stripped away. I knew this would be an important part, not just for my work but in terms of my own development, because I would be confronting elements of myself that I didn’t want to confront (…) To see yourself displayed as unattractive, large, masculine, it’s quite tough… But I know it’s just perspective. A social conditioning that causes us to view these traits in a woman in a negative way." — Gwendoline Christie
