1. The glamourization of sex work.
Now, I personally believe adult women can choose to do sex work if they wish, but glamourizing it is a HUGE issue. Just browsing through Tik Tok, I see loads of underage girls saying they cannot wait to start an OnlyFans. On top of that, glamourization leads to misconceptions. It's not empowering, it can take a huge impact on your body image, make you competitive towards other women on the platform, if you fail, then you develop a complex of constantly comparing yourself to others, and losing your confidence. The AVERAGE OF creator earns 129£ (180USD) per month on OnlyFans, which is not even a quarter of most peoples rent, these things need to be spoken about before young women decide to join these platforms, as once you do there's no going back, yet New wave Feminists seem to be pushing it as empowering and fail to talk about the huge issues with it.
All I've seen in recent months is a rapid increase in the sexualization of young girls. Danielle Bregoli joined the OF platform as soon as she turned 18, however, uploaded multiple different 'outfit' pictures on the SAME DAY almost immediately as she joined, this means most of those pictures are from when she was 17.
2. The normalization of fetish wear being worn out, every day by teen girls.
Now don't get me wrong, I love garters, chokers, and so on, but do I love seeing them on underage girls? No. I have seen ownership collars on young girls from age 14 and up, full suspender belts and so on, I agree to an extent clothes don't hold sexual meaning, BUT to include literally BDSM wear in that? Is absolutely stupid, Mouth gags, ownership collars, they originate from BDSM fashion, and they should be worn when of age, not to school or as a fashion accessory, again I see feminists push the normalization of this more than anybody else by saying 'Clothes don't hold sexual meaning'. (Just a side note, I don't include normal garters, they actually originated to hold up socks. However, there's no denying the sexualization of them.)
3. The seeing everything as an attack on women, within professional environments.
So, I'm from England. Here we have a school uniform, and luckily our regulations aren't 'stupid', unlike some I've seen in America where a girl can't even wear a tank top in summer because her shoulders are 'revealing'.
School uniform is a long tradition, and serves many purposes, for me it prevented a lot of bullying because I couldn't afford fashionable items growing up, school uniform made me look the same as everyone else.
However apparently now, if you cannot have your skirt hiked up to your arse, your blouse unbuttoned with a massive push up bra on, while underage (secondary school is only until 16 here) then you are being 'sexualised' and targetted by men. I'm sorry, but some body parts are DEFINITELY sexual and do not need to be shown off in school, keep it to when you're out with your mates, even then you are underage. Again, this is another thing I've seen new wave feminists behind, portraying school uniforms as oppression and misogynistic, these girls can dress however they want outside of school, but right now they are in a professional environment, with a focus on learning, so what does it matter?
I've recently found since I go to college now, and don't need a uniform I spend so much time choosing an outfit, and getting ready/getting insecure about my appearance, School uniform stops a lot of this, with making the main focus on your work, not a competitive playground on who does their eyeliner the best. Again, new wave feminists are pushing to sexualise young girls, even in a school environment, an environment thats unfortunately already heavily sexualised by porn. But sure, let's let 11-16-year-olds run about with their skirts hiked up their arse, blouse unbuttoned, thigh highs on and more makeup than a drag queen, that's freedom, right?
That concludes my tedtalk, I guess I'm 'anti-feminist now lol, Nope I just see things for how they are, women have much worse issues to deal with right now than whether girls in first world countries are allowed to show their thongs in school. Check your privilege.
