Emily Ratajkowski is tired of our culture hypersexualizing the female body

What if for once we stop looking just at her explosive body to focus on her words?

Emily Ratajkowski is tired of our culture hypersexualizing the female body What if for once we stop looking just at her explosive body to focus on her words?

"To me, any expression that is empowered and is your own as a woman is feminist.
If a woman decides to dress sexy, it doesn’t mean she’s not a feminist. [We] should be doing things for ourselves. If that is the woman’s choice, and it makes her feel good, then that’s great.
Good for her".

Emily Ratajkowski continues to emphasize it, but it is as if her untamed physicality obscured the truth of these words to completely distort the meaning.

The last time she does an interview by Allure, which puts her on the cover of its August issue.

"It really bothers me that people are so offended by breasts" - she explains and reiterates the concept underlining - "I realized how fucked our culture is. When we see breasts, we don’t think of beauty and femininity. We think of vulgar, oversexualized images".

True, but if Emily says it loses its value.

Yes, because if a model proudly exhibits her body seems that automatically she shouldn't be unable to make a sensible and feminist concept. Because beauty is a guilt that can't be forgiven and creates fractures among women themselves.

And when Emrata reveals to the Harper’s Bazaar magazine that she has been often discriminated against by the size of her breast, start many frustrated comments and offensive criticisms. Maybe before you write you should listen to her statements with eyes closed. Let’s face it.

From Harper’s Bazaar:

"It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don't want to work with me because my boobs are too big. What's wrong with boobs?
They’re a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue?».

From Glamour:

"It takes a really long time to not only prove yourself but also prove that you’re more dynamic than just this one part of you that they see.
I believe in sexuality. I think it’s a wonderful thing and, if anything, I want women to understand their own sexuality outside of a patriarchal male gaze. We’re the core of sexual beings, and I think that’s something that should be celebrated rather than attacked".

From her Twitter’s page:

"Women choosing when and how they want to share their sexuality and bodies".

To the New York Times, she expresses the frustration of living in a society in which "somehow feels that women can’t manage to be political, feminist and a sex symbol".

And again, from Baby Woman the text written by herself for the feminist project of Lena Dunham Lenny Letter

"To me, “sexy” is a kind of beauty, a kind of self-expression, one that is to be celebrated, one that is wonderfully female. […] I refuse to live in this world of shame and silent apologies. Life cannot be dictated by the perceptions of others, and I wish the world had made it clear to me that people’s reactions to my sexuality were not my problems, they were theirs". 

Do you still see a couple of big breasts or even a well functioning brain?
