Paris Jackson causes firestorm over nude photo, defends it as ‘expressing’ herself

On Saturday, Paris Jackson posted a picture of herself sunbathing in the nude to Snapchat.

When there was blowback and criticism for the nude photo, Jackson took to Instagram to say that “there’s other things to be mad at other than tanning y’all.”

She then posted a picture of herself topless and smoking a cigarette, writing that nudity started as a “movement for ‘going back to nature’” and “expressing freedom.”

“Being naked is part of what makes us human,” Jackson said. “For me it helps me feel more connected to Mama Gaia. It’s actually a beautiful thing and you don’t have to make it sexual the way many Hollywood stars (and the media) do.”

She concluded by saying that everyone has a right to their opinions and that people who disagreed with hers could simply choose not to follow her.

“If this makes some of you upset, I completely understand and I encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but I cannot apologize for this in any way,” she said, adding, “It is who I am and I refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret.”

 

i’ll say it again for those questioning what i stand for and how i express myself. nudity started as a movement for ‘going back to nature’, ‘expressing freedom’, ‘being healthier’ and was even called a philosophy. being naked is part of what makes us human. for me it helps me feel more connected to mama gaia. i’m usually naked when i garden. it’s actually a beautiful thing and you don’t have to make it sexual the way many hollywood stars (and the media) do. not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it’s being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself. there’s different ways of absorbing mother earth’s energy, my favorites are earthing which is absorbing the earths vibrations from contact between the soil and your bare feet, as well as letting your naked skin absorb the rays of the sun. the human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what “flaws” you have, whether it be scars, or extra weight, stretch marks, freckles, whatever, it is beautiful and you should express yourself however you feel comfortable. if this makes some of you upset i completely understand and i encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but i cannot apologize for this in any way. it is who i am and i refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret. every one as an opinion and every one has their beliefs. we don’t always agree with one another and that’s okay. but again, we are all human, and to appreciate the things that other people do that make us human helps us feel connected. how can that be a bad thing?
