an italian giorgia peach

What a great photo. I want to go to Italy. After getting a glimpse of Italian TV personality Giorgia Palmas (above), I’d settle for Italian basic cable. She’s my piccante discovery of the week.

@ Slartibartfast: you know, it’s my confusion around mainstream feminism — and its perceived judgments and assumptions about sexuality — that prevents me from stating that I’m a feminist. I have no answers for the contradictions you’re seeing, except to offer up the notion of context. though I think girls can be just as sleazy and unthinking about female sexuality as men can. but a lot of feminists love what happens here on tiny nibbles, so keep that in mind too. and as for Hef, I think he *should* get some real, sexy models for a change — trans girls, big girls, girls of all colors and genders and orientations. because regardless of whether feminists (or anyone at all for that matter) will ever think he’s made a significant cultural contribution, it would actually be hot. and might get his empire to be relevant again.

and yes, the standard here is hotness. bonus points for defying stereotypes.

There’s just something about Italians…. (hell, there’s something about everyone, but…)

When I USED to watch TV, and channel surf, there were these Italian talk shows I’d come across, where every last woman was just radiant. Didn’t matter if they were thick or thin, young or old, they were just striking. Couldn’t understand one damn word, and, frankly, I couldn’t care less – I could watch ‘em just TALK for an hour. They just had this THING.

And yeah – Giorgia’s got it too.

Sigh.

“Context. Violet also posts hotties of all shapes, sizes, genders, sexualities, etc. Her completely realistic standard is hotness, not fitting into pre-fab conceptions”

And what is the “right” and “wrong” context. I personally find this image very sexy and would enjoy it equally on Tinynibbles, Playboy or Maxim. In a free society championing personal freedom and civil liberties there is no wrong context other than those which promote non-consensual coercive domination. Even if Hugh Hefner modelled sexy plus-size women, transexuals, etc.. I can guarantee that none of this would garner him any respect from mainstream feminism.

Context. Violet also posts hotties of all shapes, sizes, genders, sexualities, etc. Her completely realistic standard is hotness, not fitting into pre-fab conceptions.

Besides, this girl looks like she at least has a few muscles in great places. (More than I do at the moment, alas.)

My thought? She’s so hot she’s making me sexist!

Giorgia Palmas is extremely gorgeous. Yet aren’t these the very images of unrealistic beauty standards that mainstream feminists are fighting against? Aren’t these and other similar images which cause women to lower their self-esteem and purge? What I find very contradictory is that when these images are published in Maxim or other lad mags, it is considered to be sexist raunch contributing to the hypersexualization and pornification of young women. Yet when repackaged on a feminist website, these images are suddenly okay. The more I delve into feminist media, I often see contradictions such as this. Your thoughts?
