Earlier this year the book returned to bestseller lists, which Atwood attributed in part to concerns about the election of President Trump.
I'm used to the fact that images of unaltered women are seen as unacceptable.
I've taught myself to ignore it as much as I can and through the Internet via sites like ROOKIE and social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook I've been able to freely share images and start discussions about these issues.
Recently, I had my Instagram account deleted. No nudity, violence, pornography, unlawful, hateful or infringing imagery.
Unlike the 5, this is how many images are tagged bikini bathing suit images on Instagram see here and here mine depicted my own unaltered state -- an unshaven bikini line. Up until this moment, I had obviously seen and felt the pressure to regulate my body, but never thought I would literally experience it.
I'm used to seeing female bodies perfected and aspects concealed in the media i. I wasn't surprised when TMZ requested to interview me about my t-shirt, but then cancelled because the image was "too explicit for television" -- whereas during Rihanna's abuse scandal, her beaten face was broadcasted hundreds of times.
I'm used to seeing women being degraded, slut shamed, harassed for what they look like. Even the most powerful women in the world are measured by their appearance and constantly ridiculed for it. I'm used to one of the biggest media outlets calling a 9-year old girl a "cunt" with the intention of being "satirical".
I'm used to seeing cover after cover featuring stories about a popular celebrity being fat-shamed during pregnancy. I'm used to seeing reviews of an award show performance that critiques a female singer for being "slutty," but then fails to even mention the older male behind her.
I'm used to reading articles about whole towns harassing a rape victim until she's forced to leave. I don't want to be used to this. I don't want to have to see the same thing constantly. I don't want to be desensitized to what's happening around me all.
I consider myself endlessly lucky to have access to the Internet and technology. Through it I've found myself and have been able to join a new discourse of females young and old who strive to change the way we look and treat ourselves.
I know having a social media profile removed is a 21st century privileged problem -- but it is the way a lot of us live. These profiles mimic our physical selves and a lot of the time are even more important.
They are ways to connect with an audience, to start discussion, and to create change. Through this removal, I really felt how strong of a distrust and hate we have towards female bodies.
The deletion of my account felt like a physical act, like the public coming at me with a razor, sticking their finger down my throat, forcing me to cover up, forcing me to succumb to society's image of beauty.
That these very real pressures we face everyday can turn into literal censorship. If the Internet mimics real life, then there is no doubt that real life can mimic it.What has become increasingly visible is the largest political scandal in the history of U.S.
