pro-model

I don’t hate Emma Watson. Tumblr loves hating on her, but I think the following should be made clear

-She has done work outside of Harry Potter, in numerous productions as well as modelling for the likes of Burberry.

-She is under no obligation to be okay with Belle’s corset. None. Beauty & The Beast is a fairytale moreso than a period drama. The notion that a woman has to wear anything makes me wholly uncomfortable. Lots of actors refuse to wear things or do particular things. They are people first, not puppets

-It is not Emma Watson’s fault the way Hermione Granger was written in the films

-After her famous feminism speech for the United Nations, threats were made against her by people claiming to be in possession of ‘nudes’. Her ‘white feminism’ did not protect her there

You can whine and whinge about being a ‘fashion designer’ but that is no excuse for old fashioned misogyny against women. You’re not cool when you bash Emma, you’re not groundbreaking or edgy. You sound bitter and awfully unpleasant. I don’t care if you are a film student / fashion student, don’t be a hateful jerk.
