Thanks for saying "Kiai" instead of the terrible cliche' "Hai-Ya" (or unless youre "Shampoo" ^_^ ).
By far my fave costume by you and my fave Femme Anime/Game Character .
For a 1st time thats an awesome side snap kick . . . .
She's not ashamed, she loves her body. But there is a very huge difference between loving her body with her, and treating her body as a piece of meat.
As a woman who has seen thousands of women treated as meat, I will never relax.
As a gazelle it isn't your life goal to be eaten, but if the gazelle were to wander to the lions den what is it that would happen.
all I am saying is that if its unwanted, there are many things she can do to avoid such things, if one is ashamed of who they are so badly, or cannot handle the attention then one could avoid posting any pictures of themselves online.
Shortest of it all: relax.
And attention is okay, but not the kind that dehumanizes the person. No one should feel like they exist only as a sexual piece of meat just because they happen to show off body parts everyone else has.
It doesn't matter whom you are, stripping naked and walking down the street will garner attention.
You see this woman is cosplaying these female characters that are highly sexualized as it is, not to add in to the equation that she herself is well endowed and pretty alluring. It's not to say that the comments are just, its to say that the artist in question really shouldn't be over sensitive to such statements.
As well as not needing others to protect or defend, she is doing fine handling it by ignoring.
