I just want to provide a perfect example of the page in The Medium is the Massage I brought up in class on Monday. Here is the image:
I took this as showing how naked skin isn’t a big deal, and how our society has become so scared of it- more so relating to women. There is constantly policing of women’s bodies and clothing. And it’s done by men and other women. From being told that we can’t wear tank tops with thin straps in high school, to being judged for showing “too much skin” by other girls, and among other criticisms.
I saw this article a few weeks ago, and I think it perfectly demonstrates how out of control it has become. This girl’s shirt is in no way even see through or anything! The teacher would definitely have had to be looking really closely to “feel uncomfortable.” This type of behavior always made me wonder why we focus so much on teaching women how to dress, but not men how to behave and respect women.
