More and more these days, our Chivettes are... accelerating into the turn I suppose. When The Chivettes first coined the term 'Chivette' (I'd love to take the credit but I didn't do it, a Chivette did), the idea that a farm girl from Iowa with some meat on her bones or a 40 year-old stunner from Alberta could become a sex symbol seemed absurd in this youth-crazy, photoshop-happy world... but they did it.
The Chivettes have taken pro-positive feminine imagery to the next level these days. They are your Sexy Chivers, your Redheads, your FLBP's, your Hump Day; they've dumped you, they've found you in a crowd and taken a photo with you, but most importantly, they haven't changed a bit.
Every week, the Chivettes put themselves out there without the aid of photoshop, flaws n' all. And the Chivers continue to support them. The internet is a cynical place, the very nature of the internet allows for people to hide behind their glowing screens and project whatever injustice they have in their real lives onto the digital space.
Here's a stunner. theCHIVE has an unabated commenting system, you are free to say whatever you like and it will be published. On the internet this should a fucking recipe for disaster, but theCHIVE remains nearly troll-free relatively speaking. It's an endorsement to the kind nature of the Chivers - and you get a gold star for that one, guys.
The Chivettes have changed the sexual paradigm and the positive reinforcement of the Chivers has encouraged their growth. The Chivers and the Chivettes have made it OK to be flawed, in fact you've made 'real' the new sexy. I tip my hat.
Thanks to all the Chivettes who submitted this week. Due to the volume of submissions, if you don't see yourself this week, check back next Friday. Chivettes and first-time Chivettes, submit here.
