We take a lot of heat here at Body in Mind for our blurbs and our ideas. "Gives us the boobs and bums and spare us the speeches" - we get that all the time. So why do we insist on pontificating alongside our photosets when so many people don't like it? Well, simply because so many people don't like it (yes, we are smart asses), but more precisely, because of the kind of people who don't like it, and also because there are so darned many of them. Ask yourself what kind of person hates ideas, what sort of sod refuses to think even when the planet is slowly falling apart around them, and you will hopefully see what we mean and why we try to fight it. So many people are so terrified at what is happening in the world today that they don't want to think about anything at all. They prefer to pretend and laugh at everything no matter how horrible or tragic those things might be. Many of these people take refuge in mindless and immoral forms of sex, since it's easy for them to claim it's just instinct. Nevermind that Body in Mind has proven the value of thinking about sex myriad times in the many pieces we've published over the years. It is precisely the separation of ideas and sex that we wish to make harder for people. Not to make their lives worse but to make them that much better. We believe female beauty and sexuality should never be separated from ideas, and that ideas should never be separated from life or the world. Correct ideas and our minds' ability to grasp them are the only thing that can save us and our world. And this is why as much as some people would like us to drop them we never will. Body in Mind is one of the few things left in the world that is preventing a complete abandonment of ideas. We are proudly one of the rare ramparts between mankind and its destruction. If you doubt it, ask yourself who or what you have seen promoting thinking in the media lately. Who else today is standing up for the value of ideas? The most recent person we can think of is a 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot in the head for doing it. And if she has refused to abandon ideas, how then can we abandon them as so many others have done? And what truly is the motive of those who try to stop her, or us? It is not a motive that any of us can ever give in to.
