Chelsea Handler on why she posts topless and nude images of herself

Chelsea Handler talks about why she posts topless and nude pictures of herself.

Excerpts:

” Just because women have bigger breasts, we can’t be seen nude? We provide life and food to people and we’re shamed for that? If I was flat-chested would it be okay? If I’d had a mastectomy, would that be okay? Is it because we are going to arouse people that we can’t walk around with our boobs out? I wanted to desensitize it, so I [posted topless pictures of myself] over and over and over again. It shouldn’t make news when I pose naked. It should just be okay. If we want to walk around with our boobs out, I think that’s our prerogative.”

“Posting nude pictures may have seemed like an impulsive move, but it was actually something that had been festering for years. As the youngest of six kids, I grew up spending summers on Martha’s Vineyard and I was always topless. All the pictures are of me in jean shorts, no shirt; with my brothers playing football. I remember one day, my dad came out on the balcony and said, “She’s getting little buds, shouldn’t we put a shirt on her?” And my mom said, “You put a shirt on that girl and she will never be the same.” And she was right. Because the second I had to start wearing a shirt, I felt self-conscious. Then when I actually did get my boobs, they were too big. I was a tomboy and I felt embarrassed.”
