Fashion needs to stop using and abusing young women.
The modelling industry has long been a beacon for all sorts of creeps, degenerates, and guys just trying to get laid by pretty girls.
These are girls who don’t know who they are or what they want. We take them before they’re even adults, strip them naked, wax them and bleach them, sexualize and fetishize everything about them.
They starve themselves silly and work for free, all in the hope they’ll land in Vogue.
They have no protection, no one watching out for them, and all around them are nothing but creepy wolves trying anything to get into their pants.
Let me say this again - These are girls, either in high school or barely out of it, usually not old enough to drink or vote.
And now, a young woman who dares to put out a horrific instant message purported to be from a photographer who has a long history of horrific stories - but no charges - and she’s been harrassed off twitter, with his spokesperson slamming it as a fake.
We put these people in places of power and pretend we’re deaf to the raft of accusations and allegations.
These young women are screaming for someone to listen, someone to help. Isn’t it time someone listened to them?
