The vagina and breast have become cultural iconographic patriarchal symbols of the female body. These symbols reinforce male dominant views about the sexualized female body and support popular cultures obsession with its glorification. I have chosen not to contribute to or maintain this status –quo. I refuse to perpetuate culturally unrealistic and historically unnatural notions of the female human existence.
