Amanda Beard, American olympic swimmer, will go where others have gone before. She's going naked in protest against the fur industry. She'd rather go naked than wear fur. I can think of many athletes who waste their leadership roles and iconic figures on drugs, booze, and wild parties, and so it is quite refreshing to see someone step up for a good cause. She's beautiful, athletic, sexy, and possessing a social consciousness that we can all emulate.
Amanda said, "I have seen a lot of the videos, and [it] brings me to tears. "What [some people] think is pretty is actually something that's very gruesome and gross."
Here's a link to the photo shoot:
