For a recent assignment we had to pick a card which had a word on it. Using this word we needed to create a photo essay our interpretation of the word, and present this to the class. My word was Naughty. I decided to look up the definition of Naughty and this is what I read:
1. disobedient; mischievous (used especially in speaking to or about children):
Weren’t we naughty not to eat our spinach?
2. improper, tasteless, indecorous, or indecent:
a naughty word.
3.Obsolete. wicked; evil.
I thought it was interesting that a word that means evil, is often used to describe a women who is dressed sexy, or being sexual. I think it’s unfortunate that society still makes female sexuality out to be such a bad thing. Something that is shameful and wrong, while for males it is completely normal. I decided to take photos of a women modelling that would be considered “naughty” by society, even though I think they should be considered tasteful and beautiful, just like female sexuality.
