When people ask my why I’m a feminist it’s because when peoples extremely private photos get leaked by some sick fuck, people respond like this. They are not hoes or narcissistic for taking such photos or is it something for you to creepily jack off over. They are women who took these photos in the privacy of their own home, perhaps to share with a loved one. For whatever reason just because they’re a celebrity doesn’t make it ok to leak and spread such sensitive photos. So let’s be proactive about this - unfollow and report any blogs that post these offensive images and show people that this is not an alright thing to do.STOP THE VICTIM SHAMING!!!
I keep hearing people slut shame Lea Michele and Jennifer Lawrence and Becca Tobin and basically everyone’s nudes who’ve been leaked, and I keep seeing people say, “Well if you don’t take nudes, you don’t have to worry about it!”
Let me make this extremely clear: PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO WORRY…
"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."
"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."
"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."
"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."
Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.
We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
