She stripped down to her underwear on a busy street and held up 2 bags. And everyone stared.

It's really, really hard to be this badass. Thankfully, she's got it covered.

The bags read:

"I'm standing here in my lingerie because I'm a woman who enjoys wearing lingerie but does not enjoy:


Being catcalled

Being trafficked

Being sold

Being owned

Being told to be unhealthily thin

Being told to age unnaturally

Being street harassed and followed home by a car full of men at 2 in the morning (1) being asked to f-ck you like a b-tch or to suck on these n-ts and lick the d-ck (2) being called a hoe (3), a tramp (3), a stupid girl (3), or a little Asian friend (3), and being told that you love my lack of self respect (3), and that you got these b-tches all tipsy trying to sex you (3).

I'm standing here in my lingerie because I'm a woman who enjoys wearing lingerie and many MANY other things (4). HAVE AN AWESOME DAY! <3, D

(1) actually happened

(2) actual lyrics

(3) actual lyrics that aren't from hip hop songs

(4) see you next time! {my lingerie play}

The solution is not to tell women to cover up. The solution is not to tell women to keep chaste. The solution is not to tell women to stop being sexual beings. We are not asking to be harassed, abused, talked down to, or violated no matter what we are wearing. The solution is to change the way we are talked about for being a sexualized woman does not strip us of our humanity. The problem isn't sexualization, the problem is the DEGRADATION that comes along with women expressing it. #mylingerieplay"
