Boity’s Marie Claire picture

BoityPhoto

It’s the picture that has had everyone talking for the last 24 hours and counting… TV personality, Boity is one of 36 celebrities featured in Marie Claire’s Naked issue. For some reason, this picture has become a trending topic on social media and in the media space in general. Last night I was driving home from an Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon workshop. Aubrey Masango of 702 fame was talking about this picture, as were most of his listeners. It seems to have divided a lot of people, with some saying it’s too much while others say it’s appreciating the human form/ physique and the beauty that a person like Boity embodies.

I think she looks lovely. She’s comfortable with who she is, what she stands for and this is for a good cause too. So big up to you, Boity and to the other celebs too! Cath, you’re looking great here, yourself.

  1. Hmm I have been scouring websites since I heard about this Boity Marie Claire photo, to really understand what the issue is. She posed naked just like those other women. I don’t understand why anyone is making a big issue of it. Wait, it is that butt. Are people offended that nature/her genes has given a nice shapely African butt to Boity, or are they saying it is fake? Why is it considered too much? She is not fat, she obviously looks healthy, I can make out a pretty flat stomach, so what are the issues exactly?

  2. I completely agree with you Anne. I have no idea why it is such a big issue. It’s the Naked Issue after all, but maybe the prudes of society felt it was too much skin and too naked? Maybe it’s because she’s young? Who knows. I think we should praise Boity and Marie Claire for this… They’re doing it for a cause that is far bigger than them and for that reason, I applaud them.
