In the past year, two high-profile celebrities have come forward to speak out against the idea of celebrity nude bodies.
Justine Witt and Justin Charity have both spoken out against celebrity nude body parts, claiming they don’t fit the “norm” of what celebrities do and that it’s unhealthy to do so.
Witt, who has spoken out about her “bodies in a bag” and “nude body” in a recent interview, tweeted on Wednesday that she felt it was wrong to share her nude body because of the stigma attached to it.
“We all know the power of nudity,” she wrote.
“It can help us to heal, and it can be a liberating place for people to be themselves and be themselves without the shame, the shame and the shame of what you have been made to do.”
Charity, who spoke out on the topic of her body in a 2015 interview with the Huffington Post, said that “the word ‘nude’ means different things to different people,” adding that it is not a “natural” part of the human body.
“So to me, it’s a word that’s so much more than just ‘nudity,’ because that’s really what it is, and that’s the most powerful word,” she told HuffPost.
“If you don’t have that power, what are you going to do?”
“We should be celebrating people who embrace the natural body,” Charity added.
“That’s what I am passionate about and that is what I have been able to do, and the people that have followed my journey have also embraced it.
I’ve seen how it can empower people.”
Witt said that she had been “worried about” revealing her private parts in the past, but that she was happy to share what she thought was “a body that’s meant for public consumption,” because she felt “it’s a part of who I am.”
Charity was more vocal about her body, but said she would “love” to “break the stigma” of her nude image by revealing her own body.
Charity, a model and reality TV star, has had nude body photos published on the HuffingtonPost.com.
In May, Charity said that a photo of her that had been featured in a viral video of her had been taken from her Instagram account.
The “selfie” was captioned with the words, “You should have a picture of my body because it makes me feel like a goddess.”
Charity told HuffPost that she “loves being nude” and that she has never been in a “sexual position.”
Charity added that she is not afraid of showing her body on camera because it “doesn’t bother me.”
“It’s not a body I have to hide,” Charity said.
“I feel very comfortable being myself.”
Charity said she is “not afraid” of sharing her body because she feels that “everyone else is, too.”
“The world is always so weird,” Charity continued.
“A lot of times people think we’re just so shy.
So I’m always, like, I’m not shy, so why are people shy?
It’s just, it is what it [is].
It’s not my body.
It has no power over me.
It is the body I am, and I’m very comfortable with it.”
Charity also said that her nude selfies are a way for her to express her “personal truth” and to “express how I am and what I think about.”
Charity explained that her personal truth and “the truth about my body” is one that “can be seen through my body.”
Charity’s nude body is not only her, it also “is a part” of who she is, Charity told Huffington Post.
“There’s this really important part of me that you can see through the naked body,” she added.
Charity’s Instagram account is now private, but HuffPost reached out to the company for comment.
