Muslim actress threatened over Playboy pictures
When I think of someone famous taking off their clothing for money and more attention, it’s rare that I compare their actions to those of great revolutionaries. Of course, that’s probably because I live in a society that values freedom of expression, and where the female form isn’t something we like covered up (which is why winter sucks so hard). That’s why I had to take a few moments to appreciate the fact that a German Muslim actress named Sila Sahin has received death threats after posing nude for Playboy.
Her Turkish parents are apparently uber-conservative and called her all kinds of nasty names for doing what she wants with her own body.
“For years I subordinated myself to various societal constraints. The Playboy photo shoot was a total act of liberation.”
You know you’re on the side of good when you’re trying to defend a society that has citizens who feel liberated when they show people their naughty parts!
