So when the opportunity to pose for Richard Kadrey* came up I was all... "HELL TO THE YES!"
And I did. And it was great.
I am unashamed of my body. When I am not injured** I spend hours every week in the gym. I'm not fashion model thin and I'm happy about that. I have lovely tits. I gotta nice ass. It's a strong body.
But then, I got a few of the pictures and someone close to me suggested that if they got out my entrance to the wonderful ( but mostly male dominated) world of comics.... well that it would be a trip in a revolving door... in and OUT.
Why? I asked
The theory seems to be.. well... that life is like setting up a character in an RPG. If you max out the sexy skill then there is *NO* more points left for smart or creative or... anything.
Am I just being sensitive? When Ginny McQueen didn't wanna strip at a con trolls were quick to point out that she must be a WHORE because she posed nude as a model.
I have to admit that at NYCC, I saw the Playboy chicks and thought "What the frak are *they* doing here?"
So... I wanna have this discussion on Twitter. @Lgwenn - message me and follow #sexynotstupid
*If you don't know Richard Kadrey's photography you can find it here. How did I get this opportunity? Well... stalking the poor man didn't hurt. Richard swore that we had met in Portland... I've never been to Portland. I think maybe by sheer force of will I falsely implanted myself in this memory. Also: Don't stalk people. It isn't good manners.
**I got hit by a truck. I'm ok... but it's cutting into my gym time :(
