February Girl has a blog

February Girl at rest
ESWN recently translated a post on the Tianya forum by February Girl (二月丫头) that starts like this:
I have been posting photographs one after another at Tianya's True Self Community Forum. Some were pretty, and others were ugly. My eyes were popping in one, while my teeth were protruding in another. I was happy in some, and I was sad in others. But without exception, I was revealing my cleavage. Many visitors saw those photographs. Some said that I was sexy, pretty and of mixed blood. There were praises as well as criticisms. Some said that I was a transsexual. Some said that I was exposing myself, exhibitionistic and filthy-minded. Some said that I don't have the reserve and reticence of my forefathers. Some said that I am a prostitute.

Let me state up front that I am a human being. I am a woman. I am not a transsexual. I am not a prostitute. In this social forum at Tianya, I have the right to show myself and the viewers have the right to like me or criticize me. If you want to say showing yourself is exhibitionistic, exposing oneself is equivalent to losing the ancestors' moral qualities, then ... ha ha ... we are going to have a good chat about this. I have plenty of leisure time anyway.

As a woman, I have the right to show my beauty. I like to look at female nude bodies. I always believe that beautiful things should be shown. Unfortunately, I have received an education and I ate the "forbidden fruit." Therefore, I cannot convince myself to strip totally. Besides, I don't have self-confidence in my backside and I don't want to insult the eyes of my spectators. After due consideration, putting aside my decent face (which has somewhat protruding teeth) for the moment, my proudest exterior asset as a woman are my rising cleavage -- the "ridge" that people talk about.

February Girl now has a blog: February Girl (Chinese). Read the whole Tianya post on ESWN The February Girl pics.
