Rachel L's Image
The image I chose is a naked woman holding a gun. It is a midshot, focusing on how she is holding her breasts, barely exposing her nipples. The image is actually pretty bare, with a plain white background. The woman has a perfectly tan body and is wearing makeup and a belly button peircing. The woman is looking at the camera and is staring right at you; her mouth is slightly opened. the only prop is the generic looking gun, oh and maybe her fake nails.
This image brings about a lot of emotions for me. It reminds me those cheesy action films that my boyfriend watches. It always makes me so angry to watch an action film and the token woman "fighter" has a perfect body and is wearing uncomfortable leather outfits, that are obviously not practical for fighting in. It makes it seem that the only reason the woman is in the movie is for their physical features.
I see the image as a poor attempt at the seductive, dangerous whore fantasy, that is depicted way to often in major motion pictures and is reinforcing women as objects.
