Female beauty is a powerful force. Kelly Hall and Rhian Sugden have helped prove it. They, along with all of the other Page 3 models in Britain, have carried the Sun for 43 years. They are the real cause of the newspaper’s success. They are its heroes. Kelly and Rhian and the Page 3 models have shown just how much good female beauty can do. Both ladies devote much of their time to promoting charities, raising money for war heroes and testicular cancer.
The phenomenon of beautiful women using the beauty of their bodies to do good things is a brand new one. We’ve never seen anything like it before. Women’s sports teams do nude calendars to raise money for their causes. FEMEN uses their bare breasts to draw attention to women’s rights. Women around the world are baring their bodies in political protest. And it’s working. There can be no doubt about it. Female beauty is doing good things.
The anti-beauty crowd, however, will tell you that praising the power of female beauty is simply another male ploy to keep women in their place as sex objects. For example, Page 3’s detractors openly declare the topless models are there to sell the paper. Contradictorily, instead of seeing the models as the driving force of the paper, protesters see them as helpless sex objects. Naturally, the rest of us see them as people, women, individuals, idols even.
Clearly, the view that beautiful, sexy women are sex objects is the problem, not female beauty. Female beauty is NOT a “problem”. And neither is men’s love of it. Female beauty exists to help perpetuate the human race, not only by inspiring reproduction, but by inspiring morality. All of the crucial problems in the world today are caused by a marked lack of morality in people – race wars, the environment, wildlife decimation, cruelty to animals, violence against women, terrorism. How has mankind lost its moral compass? We at BiM think it’s because nature intended female beauty to be that moral compass, and instead of following it we as a species completely distrust it.
Consider that no woman is permitted to declare her own beauty without incurring a wrath of moral condemnation, mockery and scorn. Ironically, the only women who are allowed to say it are the ones who are noticeably NOT beautiful. Such women present no threat of inspiring anyone with their “beauty” so they are permitted to boast all they like.
Real female beauty has NEVER been permitted to be seen as moral force in our society, let alone tested as one. The truth is we don’t know what a society that values female beauty would look like. We DO know that so far we’ve all benefitted greatly from just a touch of glamour. Imagine the good that might come from letting female beauty freely work its magic on our society, and on the world, in a big way.
