"Life is like a Bra…" And women need to be more open about their sexuality. Whichever absurd person decided that it would be okay for a man to roam around shirtless, in his boxers, but girls can't even be seen in a Bra – surely did a hell lot of damage to our society. Did you know there are still people who have a problem with a girls Bra Strap showing?! The strap?!?!?! People that don't like it when the shape of your bra is visible from the top you're wearing. I've been around a few such diseased people. And you can't tell that they're affected by this narrow minded disease when you first meet them. They look normal. They make you feel wonderful at the start. They're the ones that follow bold models on Instagram & keep porn on their phones. They come across as extremely open minded. They'll talk to you about feminism and global warming. And trust me, it's usually that "Bra Strap" that arouses them in the first place – and then BAM! You're being told its "just for them to see". You should dress more "appropriately" in public. If you meet these diseased people, you could A. Send them to a Doctor, or B. Ask them to go fuck themselves. I honestly don't see what the problem with lingerie is? I wear it. Yes. Am I suppose to act like I'm NOT wearing it by hiding it completely? It's a piece of clothing that covers my breasts. Just like a skirt covers my legs. Or sleeves cover my shoulders. What's the big damn deal? The term breasts? Is it a girls Boobs that make this world uncomfortable? Are men THAT weak? I mean trust me, it's not like our boobs are holy or sacred. They're just…. A part of the body. Stop asking women to feel uncomfortable about it. Our breasts are not our "respect and dignity". Men flaunt their chests, while girls won't even hold a Bra in their hand publicly. Well… I will. Because I'm not ashamed of it. I have nothing to hide. Lingerie is not something that needs to be hidden. In fact, it's quite pretty, isn't it? I'm tired of women themselves constantly feeling like they've to be ashamed of everything. Pads. Tampons. Lingerie. Our body. Our desires. Sex. Let's put an end to that. Free the god damn mind. #FreeTheNipple @freethenipple

Whatever Saloni wrote there is a touch of reality. “Do only men have right to fight boxing and wrestling with fully exposed chest while women are even shamed for unintentionally displaying bra strap?, Saloni questioned in one of her recent social media posts.

The bubbly actress also bluntly ranted about how some men give unwanted attention towards women’s bra strap. She quoted that these men talk about global warming and feminism, yet “Bra Strap” arouses them!

Saloni Chopra Slams Beauty Industry

Saloni Chopra didn’t stop there. She also took a dig at beauty industry saying that they constantly make you feel embarrassed about yourself and your capability while they go on to make billions of buck out of your insecurities.

The beauty industry is a hoax. It's main business is your insecurities. It feeds off of you. Magazines are all about focusing on how you're "not OK" & they can help make you "perfect". It's ridiculous that there are billionaires running businesses out of your body issues. Lowering your self esteem while making you believe that you're somehow getting "better". It's okay to want to look sexy. Of course. I'm horrible at flirting and portraying sex – but that doesn't mean I don't like to try. This photograph for an example was an attempt at one similar thing. To look seductive. I decided I wouldn't cake my face with make up, OR even do up my hair, & try to keep it as natural as I could. Because feeling/portraying sexy is wonderful – but letting someone else decide your sexy – is not. You're sexy when you're comfortable. You're sexy in your wheat skin tone. A pimple can't stop you from being fucking hot. Nor will a bad hair day. You don't have to have the perfect body, the perfect toe nails. That is a load of bulshit that they sell you, just so that you can become insecure enough to then try to fix a problem within you that never existed to begin with. I have a stomach. My fingers aren't "beautiful" in the way they'd say they are. My skin isn't like butter. My hair is frizzy. But LOOK! This photograph is a perfect example of why you mustn't give a shit about what society tries to tell you. Or sell you. You don't need 100 products to look/feel good about yourself. You already look like a cover girl. Don't get lost in the crowd. Before you know it, you'll be lost in the world of Beauty Magazines. Honestly if I had to dedicate my time reading, I'd read things from @berlin.artparasites & @elephantjournal & @chakabars & if I were to be inspired by women, it would be women like @lenadunham @sophiabush & @amy__schumer . Remember that we become what we surround ourselves with. So surround yourself with people that tell you you're beautiful first thing in the morning. Read good literature. Think good thoughts. Learn about life & humanity. THATS Sexy. PC @amit_agarwal25

Coming to beauty products, there is  some truth in Saloni’s views. A person is as beautiful as his or her real talents and skills are. A beauty product can cost you money but it can never fetch you a good job or lets you become successful unless you have the right skills, talents, aptitudes, patience and expertise.
