We here at Egotastic! do not really get into politics much. Not that we don’t have plenty of completely unfounded, unintelligible, and knee-jerk positions on things we know little about like most people in Hollywood who get into politics, but, quite frankly, we’re just really lazy. Politics is all about arguing, we’re all about naps.
Having said that, we know what we stand for and that is that women are hot, sexy creatures with a bodily divinity that needs exposing, not covering. That there’s nothing shameful or wrong or inappropriate about the nekkid female form. And, yes, that boobs can save this world. It all makes sense if you think about it long enough.
So, today, our hero is Egyptian blogger Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, a young woman taking a stand against the repression of the female form and sexuality by her home country’s various sorts of outraged groups of ridiculous men that come up with such counter-ogling ideas. Aliaa went and snapped a nekkid photo of her own self and posted it online for all the world to see her uncensored playland. Oh, the ruckus this is causing among the people who love to get riled up over wildly unimportant things in the grand scheme of it all.
Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, you are our hero.
