A reply to Philip DeFranco

I am superior to you because I don't do sexy shoots!

So what did Emma say that makes her seem hypocritical?
"Do as I say, not as I do"

I find this whole thing about being 18 and everyone expecting me to be this object..I find the whole concept of being 'sexy' embarrassing and confusing.

Personally, I don't actually think it's even that sexy. What's sexy about saying, 'I'm here with my boobs out and a short skirt...have a look at everything I've got'? My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder.

I am superior to you
because I can do this
criticise you for doing this
“As I was watching [the videos] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her and I just wondered if you had thoughts about that or if you had any of your own thoughts about any of it really …”(source)

Emma Watson, making it clear that Beyonce's body is not her choice; Feminists will sanctimoniously decide for women what they may do - they are the new puritans, but an especially hypocritical variety.

The trouble is, "Classical Feminism" never existed - what you are describing is egalitarianism.

When Dworkin et al took over the teaching of Feminism at universities, and shaped the leadership of Feminism, then they determined how the movement was defined. It's exactly the same as Communism.

Young Communists will often argue that Lenin, Stalin, Mao etc etc are all irrelevant, because the bulk of communists were really, really nice. But they didn't oppose the authoritarian policies, and as we see in America, are very content with opposing liberal ideals such as Free Speech.

Feminists, as a group, campaign against businesses such as newspapers and Hooters, that use female sexuality - they call it objectification. But the businesses do not force women to work for them. Is it not "their body, their choice"?

Emma: Feminism is about choice!

Feminism: We will decide your choices for you.
It's not technically the first time she's done topless modelling,
but it is interesting that what she was wearing in her recent shoot
would be banned for strippers in some US States

And you can say "oh, they are just the radicals", but where are all the nice feminists protecting those women's choices? When feminists jump onto runways to attack models because they feel modelling is objectification, there's no condemnation of it by Feminist leaders.

One of the things that surprised me when I learnt Modern History was that most Nazis were nice. They had no idea they were bad people, they didn't do violence themselves, they were good folks... but they didn't oppose the ones who were doing the horrors, because their leadership said things that made them feel good.

It's the same with Feminism. Feminists don't oppose organisations like NOW, they don't speak up when #HeForShe says that men must learn to serve women, they just want their feelgood fix and if that hurts men and women ... so be it.
Objectification: It's fine when she does it.
Emma's true self finally revealed!

Feminists point out that no, feminism is not about choice
Maybe the whole thing was just trolling?
Excerpt from Battle of the boobs:

"The No More Page 3 campaign called for the banning of boobs from the pages of tabloid newspapers like the Sun, because, it claimed, pictures of topless women have no place in print media.

However, the official campaign’s Facebook page celebrated Watson’s shoot, sharing an article that said ‘Emma Watson’s boobs prove we still need feminism’.

Feminists can’t seem to make up their minds: are women publicly baring their boobs good feminists, or bad women?"
