    The same could be said about:
    A man who who styled his hair vs a bald man.
    A clean shaven man vs a man with 2 day growth.
    A tall man vs a short man.

    These images give me good vibes when I see them on my Instagram feed. I don't for a second think, "these women are being objectified and are destroying everything that our feminist sisters have built for us!"
    I am now hungry and want to go on an island holiday lol.

    Nuh-uh. Just look at TV. There's a lot of bald/fat/ugly news presenters and actors who are popular as all heck. Women though are always pristinely manicured and dressed to the nines.

    If judd wasn't advertising spray tanning yes I may still have a problem with the photo as she's all about the beauty industry - that's her pitch.

    If a female posted a one off or limited series nudie photo of herself to take the pi$$ out of women who were self absorbed with their own appearance, I would probably high-5 that.
    So if she wasn't about the beauty industry it would be an ok photo?

    Not necessarily. I find the "look at me" aspect of publicly publishing selfies of oneself knobby. And half naked posed selfies questionable too. Action photo not posed at the beach with family - wouldn't worry me at all. Probably.

    All these threads have done is turn a lot of us into massive Bec Judd fans. Her twins are gorgeous. Chris Judd is holding up alright too

    I would love to know if you practice what you preach.

    Actually changed my mind I don't care enough. It's an interesting debate though. Just another one we won't agree on.

    I don't publicly post anything. And I don't do the duck face selfies for my friends either
