Former NY demorat AG dodges criminal charges for violent sexual encounters

Demorat Eric Schneiderman getting a free pass…

I expect the feminists and #MeToo movement to start protests, STAT. And the liberal media should demand justice 24/7 on the public air waves.

Oh wait, the perp is a demorat. Never mind…

From NY Post: Former New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has dodged criminal charges in the domestic assault allegations that forced him to resign in disgrace, the special prosecutor in his case announced Thursday.

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said she made the decision following an intensive investigation — and despite being convinced that the accusations were credible.

“I personally interviewed each of the women who cooperated with our investigation along with their attorneys,” Singas said.

“I believe the women who shared their experiences with our investigation team, however, legal impediments, including statutes of limitations, preclude criminal prosecution.”

In his own statement, Schneiderman admitted that his lucky break “does not mean I have done nothing wrong,” and revealed that he underwent inpatient therapy following his stunning fall.

“I accept full responsibility for my conduct in my relationships with my accusers, and for the impact it had on them,” Schneiderman said.

“After spending time in a rehab facility, I am committed to a lifelong path of recovery and making amends to those I have harmed.”

“I apologize for any and all pain that I have caused, and I apologize to the people of the State of New York for disappointing them after they put their trust in me,” he added.

Schneiderman, a Democrat, quit his post as the state’s top law enforcer in May, hours after the New Yorker published allegations that he physically abused four women — two of whom spoke on the record — during the course of personal relationships with them.

At the time, Schneiderman claimed that while he had “engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity,” he never “assaulted anyone” or “engaged in nonconsensual sex.”


FYI: Some of the allegations against Schneiderman (from Vox):

“One told Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker that Schneiderman choked her and slapped her so hard in the ear that she could feel the effects months later. Another said the abuse got to the point that “we could rarely have sex without him beating me.”

“…Mayer and Farrow reported that four women had accused Schneiderman of slapping, choking, or otherwise abusing them. One of them, Michelle Manning Barish, said she suffered problems with her ear for months after Schneiderman slapped her there; at one point, blood trickled down to her collarbone. She also said he threatened her, telling her after she made a reference to him on social media, “Don’t ever write about me. You don’t want to do that.”

“I am the law,” she said he once told her.”

This is Hollyweird: HBO to staff all sex scenes with “Intimacy Coordinator”

Maggie Gyllenhaal (r) stars in The Deuce

This somehow gets spun into “female empowerment.”

Let’s just call it what it is: People watching/acting pretend sex on camera for big bucks.

About this HBO show, The Deuce:

“The Deuce features an ensemble cast that includes James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal. It tells the story of the legalization and ensuing rise of the porn industry in New York City beginning in the 1970s. Themes explored include government and police corruption, the violence of the drug epidemic, and the resulting real-estate booms and busts that coincided with the change. The show’s title is derived from the nickname for 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue.”

From Hollywood Reporter: After the second season of The Deuce piloted the practice, HBO decided to staff every one of its television shows and films that have intimate scenes going forward with an intimacy coordinator.

The network on Thursday announced its decision via its public relations Twitter account after Rolling Stone published a story about the pay cable network’s work with Deuce intimacy coordinator Alicia Rodis. “As reported in @RollingStone, all @HBO programs with intimate scenes will be staffed by an intimacy coordinator,” HBO PR tweeted.

Since working on The Deuce, a series about the burgeoning porn industry in New York in the 1970s, Rodis has worked on intimate scenes on Crashing, the upcoming Watchmen series and the Deadwood movie, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Rodis is additionally training new intimacy coordinators to be on hand during the production of the upcoming crime drama Jett and the Drake executive-produced high school series Euphoria

The Deuce star Emily Meade, who plays the prostitute turned porn star Lori on the show, initiated Rodis’ initial hire when she asked the show’s co-creators and HBO for an “advocate purely for sexual scenes,” as she told HBO’s Ashley Morton in an interview. Following the onset of the #MeToo movement, Meade began questioning why stunt coordinators were nearly always on hand for small stunts, but no one had been enlisted to protect those involved in sex scenes.

“When it comes to sexuality, which is one of the most vulnerable things for all humans, men and women, there’s really no system. There’s never been a person required to be there to protect and bring expertise,” she said.

HBO found Rodis via her two-year-old nonprofit Intimacy Directors International, which aims to codify standards for sex scenes in theater and film and protect against sexual abuse on-set. Deuce co-creator David Simon has since told Rolling Stone that he will never work without an intimacy coordinator again.

“Because the truth is, we knew we were asking a lot of actors and directors and crew in terms of professionalism and to deliver this material bluntly and honestly. But you can ask all you want — at a certain point everybody has to trust everybody,” he said.

Rodis’ role on the show initially made headlines when The New York Times published an opinion story from an actress who had played a “female prison guard” in an X-rated movie on The Deuce and worked with Rodis.

“Ms. Rodis made sure I realized what was coming across on camera. I did, and kept going; it was a choice I felt empowered to make,” the author, Margaret Judson, wrote.

Vague standards: Vogue apologizes for “controversial” Kendall Jenner photo

Pay attention white girls: This is cultural appropriation…

 

While this is not…

Why is it ok for non-white girls to imitate a white girls’ look?

And why can’t a girl just mix it up a bit and do whatever she wants with her own hair?

Liberals and their hypersensitive standards…

From Hollywood Reporter: Vogue is back in the hot seat after a pair of Instagram posts displaying Kendall Jenner in an Afro-like hairstyle were accused of cultural appropriation.

The image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the ’60s and the early ’70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras,” the Conde Nast publication said in a statement to E! News on Tuesday. “We apologize if it came across differently than intended, and we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it.”

The instigating images — promotional photos for the publication’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund — showed Jenner wearing a curly, voluminous hairstyle that many interpreted as being a take on an Afro. In a post on Thursday, Jenner posed with model Imaan Hammam, whose hair was styled straight. In a subsequent post about the Fashion Fund on Saturday Jenner posed alone in the hairstyle.

“FOR YEARS WE have been penalized about our looks and especially our hair, It is a slap in the face when non-Blacks try to imitate our look,” one Instagram user wrote in a comment on the initial photo.

“I like Kendall but why didn’t they use an ethnic model who has hair like that,” another wrote of the initial photo.

American Vogue and a few of its sister publications have come under fire multiple times in the past year for features accused of cultural appropriation or sending a tone-deaf message. A Vogue Italia cover was accused of showing model Gigi Hadid in “blackface” in May, while last year Vogue Arabia sparked controversy for styling Rihanna in Queen Nefertiti-like garments. The same publication was called tone-deaf when it featured Saudi Princess Hayfa bint Abdullah Al Saud in a photo this year showing her behind the wheel of a car: The feature celebrated the lifting of driving restrictions for women in Saudi Arabia, but the princess’ father, the late king, enforced the women-only driving ban.

Earlier this year, American Vogue angered some women’s advocates online when it published a sympathetic story about Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, in May. In an editor’s letter, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour wrote, “blaming her for any of it, as too many have in our gladiatorial digital age, is wrong.”

Rose McGowan claims the Hollyweird #MeToo movement is BS, only done to make themselves feel better

Left eat left.

From Daily Mail: The actress who kick-started the exposure of Hollywood moguls who allegedly exploited positions of power to abuse women has branded #MeToo campaigners against sex attackers ‘losers’. 

Rose McGowan accused producer Harvey Weinstein of rape this time last year, sparking an avalanche of allegations in the entertainment industry and beyond.

As stars such as Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman were alleged to have assaulted or harassed performers, activists began using the hashtag to share their ordeals online.

But McGowan has slammed the movement as ‘bull****’ in today’s Sunday Times Magazine, which comes the day after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice in the face of historic sexual assault allegations he denies.

After year of stars such as Salma Hayek and Gwyneth Paltrow claiming to be victims of harassment, McGowan has said she understands why Donald Trump supporters hate Hollywood, whose apparent liberalism she says is fake.

On the subject of #MeToo, she said: ‘I just think they’re douchebags. They’re not champions. I just think they’re losers. I don’t like them.  How do I explain the fact that I got a GQ Man of the Year award and no women’s magazines and no women’s organisations have supported me?

‘It’s all bullshit. It’s a lie. It’s a Band-Aid lie to make them feel better. I know these people, I know they’re lily-livered, and as long as it looks good on the surface, to them, that’s enough.’

More from the story:

McGowan has also hit out at Meryl Streep, saying that it is ‘literally impossible’ the actress knew nothing of Weinstein’s sexual proclivities until last autumn. Streep has denied knowing about the producer’s alleged ehavior.

Though she says ‘women have a tight to be angry’, McGowan says #MeToo activists have ‘sold themselves a fiction’ rather than face up to the true nature of Hollywood. 

The article continues:

In Brave, McGowan argues that feminism hasn’t reached Hollywood, where 96 per cent of directors are male. She says the industry’s male gaze has little interest in women beyond them being ‘f***able’.

She told the magazine that even watching the movies in question implicates the viewer in the mistreatment.

This is far from the first time McGowan has spoken out on the matter, with the actress being very vocal in her refusal to align herself with either the #MeToo or Time’s Up movements.

Back in January, she hit out at the A-listers who wore black to the Golden Globes to protest the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal by calling the idea nothing but ‘Hollywood fakery.

She tweeted: ‘And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery.

She later branded Time’s Up leadership of being ‘fakes’ after they partnered with CAA.

McGowan has claimed that agents at CAA are ‘guilty of human trafficking’ for sending actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, to meet Harvey Weinstein in his hotel room. ‘Guess where they meet?’ she tweeted. ‘Who do you think is behind this “great” pr?

‘Why, it’s the company of pimps that sent so many into a the Monster’s Lair themselves. CAA. #TIMESUP fakes.’

McGowan also took issue with the fact that none of the women who first came forward were even asked to attend the Golden Globes ceremony.

Asia Argento stated that she had not been invited, while fellow sexual abuse and harassment accusers Corey Feldman and Rosanna Arquette said they too were ignored by the group.

‘Y was I ignored 2Nite? Do U C the hypocrisy here? Hollywood taking a stand in unity, when I wasn’t invited?’ Feldman asked Argento on Twitter, who replied ‘Don’t worry, I wasn’t invited either.’

She later added: ‘Not only I wasn’t invited to the #GoldenGlobes: nobody asked my opinion about #TIMESUP or to sign the letter. I support @TIMESUPNOW even though I was excluded from it. Guess I am not POWERFUL or HOLLYWOOD enough. Proud to work behind the scenes.’

Arquette, who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, also tweeted ‘We weren’t invited. Annabella [Sciorra], Daryl [Hannah], Mira [Sorvino] … none of us were.’

DemoRAT Hypocrite Kristen Gillibrand: “A country that values women wouldn’t allow this”

Gillibrand and Harvey Weinstein

Gillibrand and Slick Willie

By now you’ve heard about the latest Alinsky tactics to derail Brett Kavanaugh.

DemoRATs are working very, very hard at this smear campaign. It’s coming fast and furious thanks to many, many demoRAT operatives. See here and the many posts on Twitchy.

And the RINOs are, of course, succumbing. Arrrrgggggghhhhh!

Another demoRAT working hard at this effort is Senator Kristen Gillibrand. You should see her Twitter timeline – full of sympathy, empathy and disdain for women who are victims of sexual assault and are not being heard because of the evil republican men.

Some examples of her tweets:

  • “We can’t change our country’s culture of sexual harassment and assault if we don’t change our treatment of survivors. A country that values women wouldn’t allow this.
  • By refusing to treat her allegations properly and by playing games to protect Kavanaugh’s nomination, they’re telling women across the country that they’re not to be believed. That they are worth less than a man’s promotion.”
  • “This isn’t just about one incident. It’s about whether we’ll send women who have experienced sexual trauma back into the shadows.
  • “Why don’t they want the facts?”
  • “We’re all better off when women’s voices are heard.”
  • To every survivor out there: I see you. You deserved better, and we will keep fighting for justice.”

You want to know Kristen about women who were sent back into the shadows because of sexual trauma? Listen to what these women have to say:

HYPOCRITE.

All you demoRATs pushing these unverified and libelous stories about Brett Kavanaugh without acknowledging the voiced experiences of Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey prove just one thing:

You don’t care about women who are victims of sexual assault ONE BIT. All you care about is POWER.

All you demoRATs involved in this smear against Brett Kavanaugh are HYPOCRITES.

I wonder what Mary Jo Kopechne would have to say…had she been a survivor.

Woman who accuses Harvey Weinstein of rape releases video showing him touching her body

Melissa Thompson is one of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein‘s accusers.

On September 11, 2018, Thompson released a secretly-recorded video of Weinstein inappropriately touching her body during a business meeting in 2011 when she went to his New York office to pitch a technology platform he could use to market films.

The video was secretly recorded by Thompson’s laptop computer.

The following is an account of the video by the Daily Mail:

The footage shows Weinstein entering the room and saying ‘hello Melissa Thompson.’

Thompson, then 28, stands and offers a handshake but he pushes her hand aside and hugs her instead.

As he caresses her back during the awkward embrace, Weinstein says: ‘That’s nice, let’s keep it up’.

The producer then sits down next to her and asks: ‘So am I allowed to flirt with you?’

Ms Thompson replies: ‘Ummm we’ll see, a little bit.’

Weinstein can later be seen rubbing his right hand up and down her left arm as she, flustered, tries to concentrate on finishing her pitch.

Another section of the video shows Ms Thompson saying to Weinstein: ‘Data’s so hot right?’

Weinstein replies: ‘It is hot. You’re hot.’

Ms Thompson alleges that he then, out of view of the camera, reached under her dress and ran his hand up and down her thigh.

He says in the video: ‘Let me have a little part of you. Give it to me. It’s okay, would you like to do it some more?

Ms Thompson replies: ‘A little bit… a little high, that’s a little high, that’s a little high.’

Asked if she encouraged Weinstein’s behaviour, Ms Thompson said she didn’t mean to but admitted she tried to ‘volley’ with him as a way of managing the situation.

Ms Thompson told Sky News: ‘Now I see he’s trying, in any way he can, to move me into that zone of comfortable then uncomfortable and confused, and vulnerable, and recognising that he’s powerful and I’m not, and that I need this deal from him, and he has the power to give it to me.

‘I think (he) was playing a cat-and-mouse game from the very beginning to see how far he could push me, and what my reactions might be, so that he could gauge… how he would play me; where my levers where, what were my vulnerabilities.’

Here’s the video:

Thompson is one of three plaintiffs named in a class action lawsuit filed in June against Weinstein, Miramax, The Weinstein Company and a host of other defendants. She claims that after the business meeting, Weinstein invited her to his room in nearby Tribeca Grand hotel where he cornered her, then raped her on the bed. Weinstein denies any non-consensual sexual contact.

I’m the last person to defend the disgusting and repugnant Weinstein, nor do I think a flirtatious woman deserves to be raped. But I have these questions for Ms. Thompson, who portrays herself as Weinstein’s “vulnerable” victim:

  • If you didn’t want him to hug you, why did you lean in for the hug (0:15 mark)?
  • Why did you touch Weinstein’s upper right arm (0:55 mark), giving him a friendly jab, even after he’d “inappropriately” embraced you and used both hands to caress your back (0:16 mark)? Do you usually touch the body of a person to whom you’re presenting a business pitch?
  • Psychologists say a woman flipping her hair is a sign of flirtation. Why did you giggle and flip your hair when Weinstein said “you’re hot” (0:59 mark)?
  • How is your touching Weinstein’s arm (0:55 mark) different from him later touching your left arm (1:16 mark)? Why is his touching your arm “inappropriate” but your touching his arm is okay?
  • Why did you later go to Weinstein’s hotel room even after he, according to you, had “inappropriately” touched and said things to you at the business meeting?

Seth MacFarlane has butt hurt over Tucker Carlson telling his audience to believe the opposite of what the MSM reports

seth mcfarlane
Well, Tucker has a valid point. See various examples here, here, here, here, here, here, here, herehere, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
From Daily Mail: Seth MacFarlane, creator of several Fox shows, said he is embarrassed to work for the network after remarks made by anchor Tucker Carlson, telling viewers to believe the opposite of what ‘big news’ reports.
‘If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations,’ Carlson told his viewers on Friday night.
MacFarlane derided Carlson’s message. ‘In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain,’ MacFarlane tweeted.
‘This is fringe sh**, and its business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company,’ the creator of Family Guy and The Orville added.
MacFarlane made his comments on a retweet of CNN’s Brian Stetler, whose show Reliable Sources is a look at how the media covers the news.
The CNN host hit out at Carlson saying he is sending a dangerous message to viewers. ‘Isn’t this sad? Tonight Tucker Carlson told his viewers not to believe ANYTHING they learn from his rivals.’
Fox News has been at the top of cable rated shows for years.
Meanwhile other news sources such as CNN, the New York Times, and Washington Post in recent months have called on viewers to look to several news outlets to gain a fuller understanding of what is happening in the world.

PC Madness: Netflix bans employees from looking at anyone for more than 5 seconds


Stephen Moyers reports for The Sun, June 12, 2018, that in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein and #MeToo sex abuse scandals, Netflix has instituted new no-flirting rules:

  • Film crews are banned from looking at anyone for over five seconds.
  • No asking for workpals’ phone numbers.
  • Avoid lingering hugs and asking people out more than once.
  • Steer clear if they say no.
  • Staff who feel pestered are to yell: “Stop! Don’t do that again!”


A “runner” on the set of Netflix’s sci-fi series Black Mirror, which is being shot in West London and on location, said:

“Everyone was spoken to about #MeToo. Senior staff went to a harassment meeting to learn what is and isn’t appropriate. Looking at anyone longer than five seconds is considered creepy. You mustn’t ask for someone’s number unless they have given permission for it to be distributed. And if you see any unwanted behaviour, report it immediately. It has sparked jokes, with people looking at each other, counting to five, then diverting their eyes.”

Netflix said in a statement:

We’re proud of the anti-harassment training we offer to our productions. We want every Netflix production to be a safe and respectful working environment. We believe the resources we offer empower people on our sets to speak up, and shouldn’t be trivialized.

#WarOnWomen: Quentin Tarantino signs on actor who assaulted female executive for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"

emile hirsch

Convicted offender Hirsch (l) and Tarantino with his buddy Weinstein (r)


Quentin Tarantino wrote and is directing a new movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which is due out August 2019. About the movie, from IMDb:
“A TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 Los Angeles.”
You know who was murdered? Shannon Tate, who was 8 ½ months pregnant at the time of her grisly murder.
Now, 49 years later, Quentin Tarantino feels the need to make yet another movie about these horrific murders.
Here’s a list of some of the better-known actors who have signed on for this movie:

  • Brad Pitt
  • Margot Robbie
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Dakota Fanning
  • Kurt Russell
  • Al Pacino
  • Luke Perry
  • Burt Reynolds
  • Emile Hirsch

That last name may not be familiar to you. I’ve never heard of him.
Emile Hirsch has a past of assaulting a woman. Here’s what I found out about Mr. Hirsch, from Wikipedia:
“Emile Davenport Hirsch (born March 13, 1985) is an American actor. He starred in Into the Wild (2007) and the A&E network simulcast miniseries Bonnie & Clyde (2013). Other films include The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002), The Girl Next Door (2004), Lords of Dogtown (2005), Alpha Dog (2006), Speed Racer (2008), Milk (2008), The Darkest Hour (2011), The Motel Life (2012), Lone Survivor (2013), and Vincent N Roxxy (2016).
On February 12, 2015, Hirsch was charged with aggravated assault after initiating an altercation with, and then strangling, Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld on January 25, 2015 at the Tao Nightclub in Park City, Utah. On August 17, 2015, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. He was also fined $4,750, received 90 days of probation, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service.”
Apparently Hirsch was intoxicated at a party and doesn’t remember grabbing Daniele from behind, throwing her to the floor and putting her in a chokehold until she blacked out. It took two men to remove Hirsch from his victim.
Fun Fact: Quentin Tarantino knew of Harvey Weinstein’s bad behavior. Back in October 2017 he said the following (from USA Today):
“Quentin Tarantino has spoken out on his longtime and close working relationship with producer Harvey Weinstein, acknowledging that he’s ashamed he was aware of some of Weinstein’s abhorrent acts but did not take a stand against them.
“I knew enough to do more than I did,” the director told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday.
Tarantino cited several Weinstein episodes involving prominent actresses. 
“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said. “I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard.”
So a man (Tarantino) who ignored Weinstein’s behavior has signed on a convicted assault offender (Hirsch) to star in a movie about the murder of a pregnant woman?
Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Sports Illustrated empowers women and the #MeToo movement by having women pose naked

si metoo movement
More women empowerment via being naked crap again. Ugh.
From Daily Mail: Sailor Brinkley Cook, Paulina Porizkova, and Robyn Lawley are celebrating their inner beauty in a bold Sports Illustrated Swimsuit spread that shows the models posing completely nude with ‘truthful’ words painted on their bodies.
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Sailor, 19, Paulina, 52, and Robyn, 28, lead a cast of models who stripped down and turned their bodies into canvases covered with words that represent how they see themselves.
The stunning black and white photos were shot by Taylor Ballantyne for the magazine’s In Her Own Words‘ project, which marks the ‘evolution’ of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in the light of the ongoing push for women’s equality.
And while posing provocatively while nude might not immediately seem like a move away from the publication’s traditional projects, those behind the shoot insisted that the nakedness was a form of expression, allowing the models involved to express their ‘voice, strength and passion… in the rawest form’. 
The intention was to use the kinds of images that readers expect from the magazine and then use those as a platform to deliver a more meaningful and empowering message. It is in fact the first time that a fully nude spread – which was shot by a female photographer – will run in the publication, which previously focused more on raunchy shots featuring risque swimwear. 
‘In Her Own Words is a continuation and evolution of the essence of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit,’ the publication explained on its website. ‘It is a platform that allows the voice, the strength and the passion of these women to be expressed in the rawest form…on the naked body…with all the artistic and creative control left to them.’
In order to make the models feel as comfortable as possible in the face of the perhaps-daunting prospect of posing nude in front of cameras and a crew of people, the magazine ‘stripped down’ its studio and used a team comprised of only women for this particular shoot.
‘We handed over the control to the women who are our brand,’ it explained online. ‘We believed in, supported and encouraged them to become a canvas and share their truth.’
Indeed, supermodel Paulina, who had the word ‘truth’ written on her side, told SI the project is about so much ‘more than being naked’.
‘It’s not just that you’re nude, but it’s also, “You’re nude and you show me the way you want me to see you.” It’s even more naked than naked,’ she explained.  ‘I wanted to say that I’m not ashamed of my body and you shouldn’t be ashamed of your body, no matter what age you are.  We all have our own truths. We all want to live according to our own truths. We want to be true to ourselves so truth is what matters more than anything.’
The powerful project meant a lot to Sailor, who has candidly spoken about how she used to struggle with body image and the pressure to be thin.
‘It was really special to be a part of this and get to express myself in a very raw, uncensored way,’ she said.  Having these words written all over your naked body and having that next level of exposure — I felt sexy, obviously, but I felt more emotional and it helped me accept myself.’
Sailor wrote ‘artist’ on her arm and ‘natural’ on the curve of her backside before striking an elegant pose for the project.
Meanwhile, Robyn hopes that the shoot will help other girls — including her nearly three-year-old daughter Ripley — realize they more than just a sum of their physical features.
‘My daughter is growing up in this world right now and I want her to love who she is because it is so important,’ she told SI. If she ever came to me and said, “I don’t feel comfortable in my body,” I don’t know what I would do. I’d die on the inside. We are women and we are human. We have stretch marks. We have rolls. We have cellulite. That’s all part of our bodies.
‘We become so obsessed with our exterior message; we give no thoughts to what’s in our heads,’ she added. ‘I just want all those girls out there to know they are so beautiful and so special.’
‘Mother,’ ‘nurturer,’ ‘human,’ and ‘creative,’ were just a few of the words Robyn had scrawled across her body for the shoot.
