By framing our model’s body simply as a phenomenon in the universe without sexualization, judgement, or fear, a door is opened to meeting different body types with aesthetic interest and appreciation rather than anger, distaste, or dislike. Nature is neither negative or positive in its view of us— it is neutral, so why aren’t we? All bodies are interesting and valuable, but we have to be given the opportunity to truly see them in order to appreciate this.
