Anonymous said: What do you think of people who says feminism today is women who sell their body cause is their decision (an empowering decision) such as prostitutes, strippers, Miley Cyrus, Nikki minaj etc To me feminism is about fighting x the women who are still in slavery or/ and poverty in some countries
First off though…don’t even say Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj in the same sentence. Nicki Minaj is the most important performance artist who ever lived. I don’t consider Miley Cyrus to be in the same category as other female celebrities who use their bodies in their work. What Miley does is counterproductive, but like, duh.
We desperately need people with different life experiences talking about their life experiences, drawing awareness to their specific issues, so we can all collectively take in information from a variety of different sources and voices. And help support them as best as possible. And we need people who don’t have a lot of struggles to listen and correct their actions and try to correct the actions of the people around them. Everyone who is able to should be fighting the fight they have in front of them and supporting the people around them who are also fighting.
But many women can’t make choices for themselves. They are not in a position to do that. Someone doesn’t let them make choices. And that can’t ever be forgotten.
