    So lately all this stuff about empowering women etc especially women of colour has been seen a lot like on tumblr and twitter, whilst I agree with that completely I do want to say that surely just posting pictures of WOC with the 'ideal' body type, naked isn't empowering it's just sexualising them? Or maybe I just have the wrong idea of what empowering is lmao sorry if I sound stupid and what not...

    It's kind of ironic because these people will complain about women's worth supposedly being based on their bodies, while "empowering" women by showing how good their bodies are

    Yeah exactly! That's what confuses me so much, it's just contradictory
