“Sex sells.” We’ve all heard it. It sells movies, books, clothing, cars, and cosmetics on television, in magazines, on the radio, and plastered across billboards and bus stops; it surrounds us in every walk of life. However, as the picture of sex has become more and more convoluted – dominated by men, full of emaciated and digitally-enhanced women, holding the expectation of “normal” at an impossible level – it has started to do more damage than money can solve.
As a result, the resistance to such damage and counterargument for a more realistic, healthy perception of female sexuality and femininity has called for the development of a common community. Conveniently, the world wide web holds a place for this in making it easy to retaliate via pornography, YouTube videos, social networking sites, and blogs. Women can take back their bodies and psyche without starving themselves, ending up being called a “slut” or “whore,” and without the years of therapy that come with years of feeling inadequate.
As the movement expands and changes, feminist-sympathizers all over the world fight for social equality by taking advantage of everything the Internet has to offer, ultimately changing the way the world wide web can be used as well as the way change can be caused.
