mango-rocket said: Hey I have a question, one of the things feminism is against is using the woman's body to get money. Example when an artist gets almost naked in front of the camera to get more money and etc. Which is almost what you do as an everyday job. You use your body to get money. So isn't it against what they say in feminism? It isn't hate I just didn't really understand so if you could explain it would be great. Anyway love your blog! Thanks in advance.
"…one of the things feminism is against is using the woman’s body to get money."
Feminism is against OTHER people exploiting women’s bodies for money. Nothing in feminism says a women can’t use her own body, skills or physical abilities to earn a living.
And if using your own body IS against feminism, are female masseuses anti-feminist? What about female circus performers? Female athletes? Female construction workers? Why is it that it’s only when sexuality is involved that it’s considered wrong? OH YEAH, because the patriarchy hates female sexuality unless men are benefiting from it. But if the woman benefits from her own sexuality (whether she’s seeking pleasure or earning money), it’s bad.
Being against women’s choice to do consensual sex work is being against women’s bodily autonomy, and is very sexually repressive. That’s not feminism.
