Most of the people on the Internet have been asking if the Love Advert Calendar could be feminist.
The social media activists, under the hashtag Stay Strong, have shown their own personal take on female strength and sexiness.
They are now allowed to do so because the patriarchal oppression has been lightened as a result of the feminist movement.
Emily Ratajkowski carb-loading, Gigi Hadid boxing with unshaven armpits, and Kate Upton playing tennis have sent a great and strong feminine message.
They have been showing the stylists’ work for the seventh year. However, it got women to question whether woman doing what she wants with her body is feminism?
The Love Advert has gathered Piers Morgan and certain feminists together in an unhealthy examination and analysis of the magazine.
After Emily Ratajkowski’s part went viral, Morgan proceeded with his sad and one-sided diatribe against Emily.
He said that Ratajkowski’s contribution to the magazine’ series did not constitute feminism, even though she never claimed that it did.
On Good Morning Britain he called her a ‘global bimbo.’ Also, he continued:
He was schooled by the model, who tweeted him, explaining: ‘telling women what to do with their bodies and sexuality is actually just classic sexism’.
However, there were some feminist writers who have questioned the motives of the Love Advert Calendar.
Plus, nowadays, the feminist agenda should serve all women and all of their choices, right?
There has been a great new wave of feminism.
It is sweeping gloriously around the planet and it is the dominating topic starting in the social media and ending to the political debates.
Feminism is beyond sexy, strong and fierce. Not only women do value equality, but men do too.
Also, maybe there is no other person who would represent the modern feminism as good as Emily Ratajkowski.
The 26-year-old disclosed on the Love appearance:
“To me, female sexuality and sexiness, no matter how conditioned it may be by a patriarchal ideal, can be incredibly empowering for a woman if she feels it is empowering to her.
Being sexy is fun and I like it. I should never have to apologize for that. My life is on my terms and if I feel like putting on sexy underwear, it’s for me. Personal choice is the core ideal in my concept of feminism.”
The critics have characterized Love as no perfect in a socio-political sense and that it uses the forces of gender equality for capitalist gains.
Also, white women dominated which made the racial diversity almost non-existent in the campaign.
Love is a bi-annual magazine which has put Beth Ditto on the cover of its issue in 2009. It has definitely always been a loud, strong and extreme portrayal of the femininity.
In addition to its femininity agenda, the LOVE advent calendar is art, fashion, humor, and fun.
Degrading the Love’s women and saying that the actions are demanding feminist movements is just a waste of our energies.
Why fight for what feminism is when actually gender equality means different things to each woman?
Also Ratajkowski stated:
“Katie directed us to say ‘Stay Strong’ at the end of each video and I think it’s a message from one woman to another. You’re watching a video of a girl grinding in lingerie or whatever. She’s looking into the camera at the end saying, ‘you do you, however YOU want to, f#$k the rest’.
In the wake of the Harvey fallout and women coming forward with incredible amounts of sexual harassment cases.
I have been so disappointed to hear women talk about ‘modesty’ and ‘our responsibility’ as if we need to. Yet again, adjust to make it ‘easier’ for the rest of the world.
I’m tired of having to consider how I might be perceived by men if I wear the short skirt or post a sexy Instagram. I want to do what I want to do. Feminism isn’t about adjusting, it’s about freedom and choice.”

Finally, If you don’t like it don’t watch it, but do not degrade the women who do and act.
