Next It Girl: 模特兒Eileen Kelly,真正身份竟然與性教育有關?

HF Crewon July 26, 2016 at 7:00 am

自從Instagram變得普及後,大家都一窩蜂地分享自己的私下生活,更培育了不少新星紅人(有關注Hf的「Social Sunday」專欄就知道了)。最近這位20歲的女生,成功引起了爭議性的注意,原因竟然是與「性」有關?

Eileen Kelly,性感亮麗的外表,加上模特兒的身份加持,成為紅人一點也不出奇。但是,真正引起公眾討論的原因,是因為她的另一個職業-「性教育」者(Sex educator)。

對Eileen來說,這原來是她一直以來的夢想。還記得在16歲時,她已萌生出此念頭,原因與大家所經歷的十分相似:「It comes from a really vulnerable place. You know, I didn’t have a mom to ask questions to and I couldn’t ask my dad because it was too weird.」一提起「性」,十不離九會被視為尷尬的禁忌話題。即使是父母,平日也很少主動灌輸這種觀念。當時,正值青春少艾時期的Eileen,發現沒有任何平台提供這類資訊。若想知道的話,一是靠朋友,二是靠經驗。在如此封閉的現象下,Eileen立志要把「性」發揚光大,更希望幫助一班迷惘的女孩。

雖然年紀輕輕,但Eileen絕對有足夠的資格及經驗:「I finishing my sex education certification from Planned Parenthood this fall, and I know myself better now. I have experiences to pull from. Taking care of people has always been a part of who I am.」曾就讀相關課程的Eileen,更成立了個人網站「killerandasweetthang」。

這個以「性」為主導的平台,有著許多關於親密關係、情緒健康及自我接納等內容。透過這個方式,希望大家誠實公開地談論,詢問及分享自己的看法。「性」,從來不是一個羞恥的話題,而是一種與生俱來的需要。

It’s about very human and empowering things – intimacy, honesty, emotional wellbeing, and self-acceptance. I want to teach young people it’s okay to be yourself even if you that day is lying in bed, feeling sad.

可是,這種被視為出位的舉動,惹來了不少反對聲音,甚至遭到誣衊。早前,Eileen在接受紐約郵報採訪時,記者竟然在內文中寫下:「I (Eileen) fuel fantasies of men who want sex with young girls, and I’m fine with it. 」自訪問一出,她立即收到不少挑釁及反對聲音。即使是對性教育充滿熱誠的她,也不禁難過起來。

在各種文字的羞辱下,大家試圖攻擊她,讓她沉默。但是,Eileen的爸爸卻說了一句:「None of this matters. I love you, your friends love you…This isn’t you.」簡單的一句安慰,令Eileen堅強起來。

Eventually, it all gets buried by the internet. No article is bigger than me.

對於以上不實的指控,Eileen選擇勇敢地澄清:「I want to build people’s self-esteem and create a safe place online for people to be themselves and share without being attacked like I was. No labels. No “crazy” or “weird.」拍下性感的自拍照,她沒有半點挑逗男性的意味。發佈這些照片,是源於一份自信,一份美麗。穿得少,並不代表有賣弄身體的意味,反而是對自我的肯定。這番言論,不但把自己的內心公開,更贏得不少支持。

比起那些在instagram炫耀自己的人,Eileen所想所做的一切,反而更令人崇拜。
