“Expressing sexuality in art is not an invitation for disrespect! Just like wearing a short skirt is not asking for assault. Women’s choice. Our bodies, our clothing, our music, our personalities… sexy, flirty, fun. It is not an open invitation. It’s our right to express ourselves.” - Ariana Grande
