Dors Feline's Announcement To Retire - A Sour Taste

Dors Feline announced and explained her retirement from modeling. Shocking news certainly for many of her very loyal and die-hard fans. Also for me - i'll be not just missing her physical assets, but also the facet-rich 'symphony', the fragrance and sometimes the fragility of the personality Dors Feline shining through the model Dors Feline. But i'm also shocked about how she words her announcement. Critical thoughts are coming up.

I'm fully aware that i can be completely misunderstood here, so i'm trying to choose my words as carefully as possible. People will still make wrong judgements, that's out of my control - but before you do so, please consider: I'm speaking here less as a person making assumptions but rather as a medium, who just sees loose ends being out there anyway that could be easily connected, leading to a sour taste. What is already happening…

In my view a model can retire without "owning" an explanation. I also think that people who lump the model and the person Dors Feline into one, with thinking they "own" her, can be just ignored. However, there's a serious number of people who have been following the model Dors as a whole package with respect and positive attention: because Dors didn't stage herself as an artificial creation but rather acted with a very real appeal. Those attentive, loyal fans obviously feel let down because of Dors' very irritating communication.

Let me explain. In her blog entry Dors points out her exhaustion from leading two lives in one body: as a real girl and a model. However, the "jet setting" part of her modeling (work for Score etc) was one that she chose, and one she easily could abandon, with still continuing her personal (amateur) modeling. Not a strong reason. All those rude or or "disgusting" emails, comments etc she's been getting - well, it's the first time i see a model claiming those for leaving the business. That sort of emails or messages indeed are inappropriate and ugly, but are they so major to stop a blooming softcore modeling career? Again a confusing argument.

Dors Feline not long ago had a big story with images (as "Dors") in the UK weekly that's life!. Where she told that she "hates" her 34L boobs and is saving up to "chop them off". On Feb 13th she confirmed the validity of that story and her planned breast reduction on Twitter after people asked, and added later "My backs still painful, might be time to get these bad boys taken off!
Another important distinction here: It would be very selfish to deny a model the right to do with her body whatever she wants to. That includes breast reduction or weight loss surgery. Also, that might surprise a few: I'm not saying that a model has to tell us the 'truth'. So i'm not even speculating how exactly Dors' extremely long stay in hospital contributed to her retirement. I just read her info (through Twitter) speaking of a severe pneumonia (of course a major bad experience) and an "operation" (later). While the breast reduction aspect has been mentioned in a different context. I assume NOTHING! But i see these aspects out there in the open, as being easily connectable, for everybody thinking about Dors. And, after the reasons that she claimed for her retirement, people getting a sour taste. Breast reduction or not.

In a nutshell, Dors Feline has been selling a product, of course loaded with fantasy and mystification. But she also wanted respect, what many loyal fans were ready to give her. Now she says that this fantasy is over, yet wants again respect for her decision. But creates at the same time another mystification, by ignoring and glossing over the irritation she created before. Now one thing's for sure: A breast reduction would make the most serious of all reasons to see the model Dors Feline being history. Dors however just let's people hang people in a mess that she has created. That has a lot of Goodbye. I don't give a fuck anyway.

Her personal site so far to a large part filled with content shot a long time or a while ago, is announced to be continued as usual! While Dors announced her Twitter account to be sold for the highest bet, starting at $1000. Being a fan of a model can be quite disturbing.
