What’s missing in the following interview is the perspective of a woman — which is a huge deal considering that we’re talking about women’s bodies and how ALL of this impacts women. I believe all of us — men and women — want the freedom to appreciate beauty in all forms. And I also believe we don’t want to somehow be harmful to others in the process. That said, consider what you’re about to hear part 1 and part 2 (which will focus on the feminine perspective) will follow soon. — Tripp
