Emma Watson Is Getting Heat From Feminists For Her Semi-Topless Photo In Vanity Fair

Submitted by: fancylad 1 month ago Lifestyle

As you may remember from this IAB post from a couple days ago, Emma Watson (a UN Ambassador and feminist campaigner) says she doesn't want to take photos with you anymore on the account of privacy and social media. Fair enough. But if you flipped through the pages of the Vanity Fair article, you'd have found a topless photo of Ms. Watson, and it didn't sit well with some women.

Can Watson pose topless and be a feminist? That's the question The Independant and many others are raising. The photo in question...

If the critics ever set foot inside an art museum, their little heads just might explode.

Oh, absolutely...  After all, every feminist only wears turtle neck sweaters. *eye roll* Here's a picture of Gloria Steinem, and she has always seemed like an important figure for feminism

So if she can get away with it, why not someone with a more recent voice?  Meh, it really doesn't matter...  You can't make 100% of people happy 100% of the time no matter who you are or what you do.

Doesn't feminism mean doing what you want?

Wasn't her beef with the photos about if people took a picture of her it would be quick to social media and then the paparazzi would get a location on her? She was worried about tracking data, not feminism.

Saitek122 You are correct. The issue was that selfies with fans would be uploaded instantly to social media and could become a real time tracker of her (because of the GPS location, the outfit she had on etc.) nowhere it is said that she didn't want pictures (with fans) for pictures sake. ... 
Next to that. As far as i know feminism is all about the control of a woman over her own life and body. The right to decide what she does with it and how she does it.
I have never read a book about feminism but i think i am 99% accurate if i say that there's nothing in those books (the Original manifesto (insert "what shall we call it? Wait i have a better idea!" meme here), not the "i think the Original manifesto wasn't ball busting enough so here's my opinion" manifestos that came later) where it says that you may not take pictures of yourself feeling empowered enough to show off your body more than usual. ... Because if that's in the Original manifesto, it would be a bit contradicting with the part about deciding for yourself. ... The only way this picture is unfeministic is if ms. Watson felt forced to pose like this (if so ms. Watson please let us know).

This is what makes feminism rediculous. No matter how much you tow the line. No matter how much you agree with every social justice thing that they tell you to, eventually they will find a way to turn on you. She is a woman, her own woman, and if she wants to take her clothing off no one should be able to tell her not to. And no one can pull her "feminist" card if she decides that she wants to expose her body in a legal and artistic way. It's the same feminists that run around topless protesting things that are screaming at this girl, and it's just because SHE actually looks sexy in the image. They already ate Amy Shumer and Lena Dunum. Now they can tear down this lady. Hopefully it will wake her up and she can just be a normal woman enjoying equality.

Thankfully, the dopey opinion that one can't be a feminist and also pose for photos like this has been widely rebuffed. From the Independent article: "The commentator’s accusation angered many, with people rushing to condemn the assertion and argue feminism and nudity were in no way 'mutually exclusive'."

Can't have it both ways?    What happened to the feminist agenda that Women Can Have It All ? As Madonna can tell you, having it all does not include being a sexual person. Feminist=Frigid

Extended cleavage and topless are different, and YES, you can be a feminist while posing for a picture in a Vanity Fair magazine article. It's not the new issue of 'Juggs'.
