In a tangent of tweets, Ratajkowski addressed her career in modeling and acting, separating that from her passion for activism.
She tweeted, “To make 1 thing clear, my career is not a plitical action. My social media & modeling are not actions I designed to address feminist issues. My ideas hve developed over time as a response to the criticism and yes, sexism my body & sexuality has generated. Why does evry1 worry abt what’s done for attntion? Let’s say when a wmn dresses sexy she DOES want attention. Aren’t we passd this bs way of thinking? The whole goal here is to let wmn do what they want for their reasons. To have the power to choose.”
She spoke out that even though she adheres to the trends and to the so called standards of beauty, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t think it’s wrong, “For example, I wear makeup but that doesn’t mean I’m not a feminist. . “I may wear makeup that enhances my features [and] that plays into the standard of beauty that has been set up by a patriarchal society but I’m living within it. I’m not wearing the makeup to please men, I’m wearing it to please myself. I also am not growing out my armpit hair in protest of patriarchy. I wear a bra. Those are things that I don’t feel I need to reject to make a statement about my sexuality.”
Gosh, we admire a woman that’s sexy and SMART.
