You have probably seen these pictures before. They have been viewed hundred thousands of times on Facebook. Still, I want you to show them one by one. First because I consider myself to be a feminist and I think it is important to show that to be different is nobodies business but your own, and second because the messages are so strong and so well portrait that they deserve to be saved in my collection of infinitesimal memorabilia.
Here is the first: Meet Alice. Casual Sex. Still a taboo not in the least created by other woman who have a strong opinion about Alice. Men call Alice degrading names for no other reason than that Alice scares them.
We live in a world that the perfect body is a body with no body hair. Even pubic hair is shaved off, like all men would like a woman that has no hair like a little girl does. The world needs more Amanda’s that do what feels best for them.
More women are raped than you ever thought was possible. Even you know in your inner circle people, women, who are raped. Rape is the lowest thing a man can do to a woman. I know I present pictures of women in submission. But in each picture consent is obvious.
Men who have sex with women who don’t want to have sex should be jailed.
Girls with tattoo are sexy, but they are just body decorations. Sometimes they make a body more beautiful than it already is. Sometimes not. It’s the choice of the girl to have a tat (after careful consideration just like all things that will last).
In the Netherlands abortion is legal within the guidelines we have agreed on. Abortion is the easy way out for the male, but not for the woman that has the abortion herself. It will leave a scar that can only be healed with love. But it’s the woman’s right to decide what to do with her own body. And if she is not ready for the child, than abortion is the right choice.
Ah yes, Laura, my favourite. Clothes show who you want to be. Just like the way your hair does, or the amount of make-up. Dress in whatever feels best. If it is from the man-section of the store and it fits, well… who are we to judge on that?
