THREAD coming up: on #NakedFeminism, and why the cult of #FemaleModesty is so toxic, despite its well-intentioned aim of shielding women from the #MaleGaze & removing society's focus on women's bodies. #Feminism #Equality #Freedom Something men realise but many women (including my critics) do not: it's not immodesty but #modesty that gives men power over women. It means they can embarrass and demean women. In turn, well-intentioned men seek to "protect" women by limiting their freedom to work & travel. 1/4
