Aly Raisman Hallway Photo

Aly Raisman is one of the survivors of the disgraced Dr. Larry Nassar’s “treatments.” She’s also an accomplished Olympic gymnast.

Now, she’s using her fame — and her body — for a very good cause.

And she’s doing it by defying her critics and posing nude.

Back in November, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman revealed that she had been molested by Dr. Larry Nassar, her team doctor.

In speaking out, she joined McKayla Maroney and others in condemning the man. His accusers now number over 140.

Bravely, Aly Raisman shared the details of the sick abuse. Under the guise of medical treatment, she and so many other girls were molested over the course of years.

Now, Aly is a grown woman and she’s lending her voice to an important cause — gender equality.

A huge part of that is helping to erase the horrifying, patriarchal notion that a woman is only worthy of respect or personhood if she dresses “modestly.”

In the captions of this bold nude photo, Aly writes:

“Women do not have to be modest to be respected– Live for you!”

Women do not have to be modest to be respected is also what she has written along her torso and leg.

“Everyone should feel comfortable expressing themselves however makes them happy.”

She’s absolutely right.

“The time where women are taught to be ashamed of their bodies is OVER.”

Some suggest that, as a sex abuse survivor, she should feel compelled to hide her body. It’s sickening that some people would try to use her tragic history to impose their views of sexuality and nudity upon her.

“The female body is beautiful and we should all be proud of who we are, inside and out.”

And of course she gave a big shout-out to the people who made that photo possible:

“Thank you so much @si_swimsuit @mj_day @darciebaum @ja_neyney @taylorbphoto & the rest of the team.”

It is, of course, wonderful to see Aly Raisman speaking loudly and bravely about women’s equality.

Particularly just after Dr. Larry Nassar has received so much attention — for sex abuse and for possessing child pornography.

One cannot help but note that Aly’s quote, which …read more
