Amber Rose recently took to social media to defend her good friend, Blac Chyna, after several fans criticized the entrepreneur for enjoying a night out at the club. Many detractors viewed Blac Chyna’s attire as inappropriate because she is the mother of a 2-year-old son named King. Amber Rose, however, saw nothing wrong with Blac Chyna’s actions and even applauded the celebrity’s boldness to be sensual.
“Chyna, a mom, can wear whatever the f*** she wants,” shared Rose in response to one critic. “We are moms 24/7/365 even if we’re at the club having a good time or when we wanna dress sexy.”
Amber further explained, “We are still moms for the rest of our lives, and we love our children more than anything in this world, but moms are also sexual beings too. Duh! How do you think you got here?”
While some regarded Amber’s response as a typical rant, others considered her point to be quite valid. After all, it was just over a year ago that Beyonce discussed the idea of mothers being alluring.
“You can have your child and still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still have yourself,” said the star. “I don’t at all have any shame in being sexual and I’m not embarrassed about it … I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power that we all have.”
While no one is trying to suppress women’s power, the question of doing too much does arise. Is it okay for mothers of small children to be overtly sensual? Is there an unspoken rule in society that requires mothers to “cover up”? If so, can this rule be viewed as a double standard since few men are asked to put on a shirt while at the beach with their kids? Share your thoughts below!
