Emily Ratajkowski Talks About Feminism, Boobs, And Being Called An Attention Whore

Sure, Emily Ratajkowski is one of my favorite models right now. No, not models, people. People. In a recent essay for Glamour, Emily writes about the fact that women can be both serious and sexual. She mentions feminism, boobs, and being called an attention whore. And she opens up about trolls who just wanted her to shut up and show them her tits.

“I realized then that I’ve been called an attention whore so often that I had almost gotten used to it,” Emily recalls. “And as women, we are accused of seeking attention more than men are, whether for speaking out politically, as I did, for dressing a certain way, or for even posting a selfie. Our culture has a double standard that runs so deep, many women have actually built up an automatic defense—attempting to be a step ahead of potential critics by making sure we have “real” reasons for anything we say or do.”

“Our society tells women we can’t be, say, sexy and confident and opinionated about politics,” Emily writes. “This would allow us too much power. Instead, our society asks us to declare and defend our motivations, which makes us second-guess them, all while men do what they please without question. The ideal feminist world shouldn’t be one where women suppress their human instincts for attention and desire. We don’t owe anyone an explanation.” You can read the whole essay right over at Glamour.
