First of all, we have people defending page three (If you aren't from the UK: Page Three is in The Sun where they show a picture of a topless woman as to sexualise their bodies.) They claim that it's "the female's choice to be in the newspaper, therefore, they're doing it to themselves." What a load of bullshit. These women are being objectified by men. Their bodies are only made to 'please' the opposite sex. Which is obviously degrading. Women should be praised on their intelligence etc, not for the size of their breasts. It's dehumanising. It's also affecting each generation. Boys grow up thinking women are just a piece of meat and girls grow up constantly thinking they're not good enough because of these images. It's ruining our society, however, people now class it as a norm - which is disgusting.
Then we have the new twitter account 'Feminist Taylor Swift'. Which I do really enjoy, however, people are taking it way out of control stating things like "this is funny because Taylor Swift is not a feminist because she writes songs about love and boys and love." Hold up. Since when was writing songs about love and boys not being a feminist? Zooey Deschanel describes it perfectly:
"We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f--king feminist and wear a f--king Peter Pan collar. So f--king what?"
Feminism is having a choice. One can choose to write about love and still be a feminist. Just because something doesn't conform to a branch of feminism does not mean they're not a feminist. Believing in equality is feminism. Taylor Swift has never stated that she's a feminist but the fact that she's a successful woman in this business practically shows she's a feminist icon. Just because she doesn't conform to people's ideas of feminism does not mean she "can't be a feminist." This also makes those people so hypocritical by judging people on what they do, wear, say etc. Therefore, they're completely missing the point of what feminism actually is.
Finally, the YouTuber Alex Day (Who I have subscribed to for a number of years) has just (like this second) put up a video about people not wearing clothes that are correct for their size. Click here for the video. PEOPLE CAN WEAR WHAT EVER THEY WANT TO WEAR. Why can't people get that into their brains?! We are so judgmental it makes me sick. People don't "need to lose weight." Just because you don't conform to the way society wants you to look does not mean you can't wear what you want. Regardless to whether he was being funny, this video was still offensive and rude. I love that new thing that's going around: Want a bikini body? Buy a bikini and wear it! It's as simple as that. As long as you feel amazing in your clothes then that's all that matters.
I could probably go on for longer but it's late and my brain is tired.
