There is no stopping Esha Gupta. Unfettered by the unimaginable amount of hateful messages she got for her nude photo-shoots, the actress dared to bare even more in her latest stunningly hot photoshoot. She has also shut the comment section to her posts, sending out the clear message that no negativity and bullies will be entertained.
Some of the comments that Esha received are so ugly that they can’t be reproduced. Many other worried netizens gave unsolicited gyan on sanskar and most thought her pictures epitomised “vulgarity”.
The dictionary meaning of vulgar is this:
- Lacking sophistication or good taste.
synonyms: tasteless, gross, crass,
2. Making explicit and offensive reference to sex or bodily functions; coarse and rude
As per our judgment, Esha’s pictures neither lack sophistication nor make any crude sexual reference. So, one finds it difficult to understand how the pictures are being termed vulgar. These pictures are aesthetically shot and look beautiful. It is the comments that she was greeted with were crass and offensive. So crass and offensive that we can’t even repeat them here.
Body shaming is a daily reality celebs live with, particularly actresses and models. Actresses are vulnerable to unwanted scrutiny and filthy comments simply because they have chosen to open up their lives to the audience and have extended their off-screen activities through online activities – be it dress or a nude photoshoot.
Whether it was Amy Schumer and Serena Williams’s 2016 Pirelli calendar photoshoot or Esha Gupta’s Instagram account, there’s nothing sexual about these pictures. It is more about body-positivity and acceptance.
Somehow, trolls out on the prowl feel it’s their right to “teach moral lessons” to actresses.
Coming back to the point, we know why Esha got trolled and what was the issue. People can’t handle nudity. Particularly men. And there lies the sheer hypocrisy of it. Ya, I mean looking at nude pictures and searching ‘hot’ and ‘sexy’ photos of actresses while you are alone in a room is fine. After all, nobody will ever come to know. As someone working in the online business, I am regularly briefed on what kind of content people are looking for. Here’s a screenshot of key words people use to look for articles:
But as soon as a woman willingly flaunts her body all hell breaks loose. Clearly, it is not so much nudity that people have a problem with. It is a woman’s expression of her free will and taking ownership of her body that pisses the misogynist lot on the internet off, no end.
Esha Gupta has set a good example by shutting such naked misogyny and assaulting their fragile moral standards by bombarding them with more skin and flesh.
Keep up the good work, Esha!
