What part of “My body belongs to me” don’t these idiots understand? If a woman wants to post nude pictures of herself on the internet, it is her body, her choice, her right. It has nothing to do with your moronic honour. FREE AMINA TYLER NOW!
This is my body; I have the right to do whatever I want with it. If I am not harming you, the decisions have nothing to do with you.
I have the right to post nude pictures of myself online. I have the right to use my body as a canvass, tattoo it or pierce it.
This is my body, I have the right to birth control, to abortion, to have sex with consensual adults regardless of their gender. I do not have to put up with your sermonizing or attempts to legislate over my body.
This is my body; I have the right to orgasms. I decide who or what goes into my body. Allowing myself to be penetrated once does not assume your right to do it again for your own purposes or reasons.
This is my body, I don’t need a hero or need saving because I am not a damsel in distress.
This is my body; I am not an object of your honour or your sexual toy.
I am beautiful despite what you think, with or without your approval. This is my body; I have the right to education, healthcare, equal pay and human rights.
THIS IS MY BODY, NOT YOURS!
Powerful video, powerful presentation, A MUST WATCH!
