Emma Watson is Confused Why People Say She Can't Be a Feminist Anymore

Emma Watson is receiving some backlash over a recent photo shoot, and the validity of her stance on feminism.

The 26-year-old Beauty and the Beast actress graces the cover of Vanity Fair‘s latest issue and one of the inside images features her showing off a lot of her chest, and the internet is not happy.

The debate is that she isn’t allowed to show off her chest or take a certain style of photos and call herself a feminist. Emma responded to those comments…

“It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is,” she said (via Reuters.)

“Feminism is about giving women choice, feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality… I don’t really know what my tits have to do with it. It’s very confusing. I’m confused. Most people are confused. No, I’m just always just quietly stunned,” she finished.

As for the photo… “The shot itself I was honestly slightly taken aback by because we’d been doing so many crazy things on that shoot but it felt incredibly artistic and I’ve been so creatively involved and engaged with Tim and I’m so thrilled about how interesting and beautiful the photographs were,” Emma said. “But yeah, certainly people have asked and I’ve gone ‘Is there a controversy about this?’”

    It’s an issue to most people because woman who set standards for woman to follow and embody shouldn’t be sexualizing herself. It’s the same as being a role model for young teens. People just don’t want to see that. Majority of the feminists who are before us have not sexualized themselves to prove a point or to get people’s attention. They stayed classy and true to who they are and with their body and didn’t shame other woman while doing it. Not saying Emma does that but that’s what happens when people put labels on you. Feminism today is not the same as what it was years ago. Anyways, props for Emma to responding back to the haters with class and pose and for not disrespecting the people behind the shoot.
