Why do I fucking love balthus

 

3Its not because i’m a sick-o

And yes, its true that the reason why i like Balthus is because of his subject.

but let me explain;

My sexualization happened when i was very young and to me it felt like no one else felt the way i did. There were times where i thought i was probably just a pervert but how cant a girl sexualize oneself when the world is full of images that sexualize young children?

Anyways

I kept my experience quiet and went on with my life however one day i met Balthus’ artwork.

Finally it felt like somebody else knew what i went through.

That’s it. These depiction of young girls, nonchalantly being sexual felt like a piece of sexual liberation.
