The Female Gaze

One of the most outraging aspects of our patriarchal society is the male gaze. Women are presented as sexual objects in the media culture and all the members of society are forced to look thought the male gaze. There is none who can deny that the objectification of women isn't imprinted on our brains. Most photoshoot present women either vulnerable or sexy or clueless (standing like a child, being cute) and it's rare to find a striking female photo, posing like a man with her chin up. For that reason these photos of Ponystep magazine are more than amazing!
I love the way Noemie Lenoir holds the male model like a child and he seems so vulnerable in every pose. His face is almost hidden in her shoulder and all we can see is his body,that's a classic way of objectifying a body. His arms are toned but in the second frame his little waist and the way that he arches his back evoke a feeling of submission.
I wonder  if there is one person out there that can concentrate on Noemie's looks while a naked male model stands in "female poses". He still looks like a manly man, buffed with a stiff face but this is not a typical photoshoot, you know it isn't when you are not intimidated but instead you wanna touch his butt.

Ella's Santa Outfit

 Hello everyone!
Today I just wanted to share with you these adorable pictures of Ella the cat in her brand new Santa cape. She looks so fancy in this it's hard to believe she is the same cat!
 It was soooo funny watching her moving around the house in her new cape. Since it's really hard to hold this kitty for more than 1 minute she ended up wearing it lower than it was supposed to but wouldn't let me fix it for her. As a result she ended up walking around the house like a corgi-cat.
 The weird this was that she didn't really wanted to take it off. She kept showing of her beautiful new cape feeling like cat royalty. I was expecting her to freak out and throw the dress away immediately as she usually does wherever you try to put something on her.
 But she was so relaxed and I'm a proud cat mama. In my next post I'll make sure to post some pictures with her hood up since she is looking like the red riding hood that way. So you can see that this cape is actually really versatile.

Have you managed dressing your pets up? How did they react?
