Your Moronic Uncle Piers Morgan Took A Weak Shot At Emma Watson's Boobs

"Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality. I really don’t know what my tits have to do with it."
"I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, you know this very strong woman and she has that beautiful speech in one of her songs but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her."
Contradictory? Maybe a little. But it's more an observation on artistic presentation rather than a critique or comparison of feminism. And given that it was from over three years ago - and with Watson being in her formative years - plenty of time has passed for her to grow and evolve her worldview and understanding of what feminism is and can be.
"The self-styled global standard-bearer for feminism had decided that Beyoncé’s brand of feminism was not the right brand of feminism. Why? Because, to deploy the parlance of Donald Trump’s notorious locker room, Emma felt it was incompatible for Beyoncé to claim to be a feminist when she was effectively getting her tits out for the lads."
"It was no accident that [Watson] chose to take off her clothes and parade topless under a skimpy white crocheted bolero jacket. She knew exactly what she was doing. After all, she’s a woman who’s been posing for magazine cover shoots since she was 14 years old. So when Emma removed her bra for the first time like this, she was doing it very deliberately. ‘It felt incredibly artistic,’ she said this week, ‘and I’m thrilled with how interesting and beautiful the photographs were.’ Of course she was, that’s what all actresses say when they strip naked to promote themselves and their movies."
"I can be a feminist, I can be an intellectual, I can be all these other things but I can also be okay with my femininity and being pretty and with all these things that I thought, you know, would negate my message or negate what I am about. That really is the most interesting thing about the album. It is so inclusive and puts feminism and female empowerment on such a broad spectrum."
If that, as Morgan feebly attempted to rocket, is "a woman using feminism as a stick with which to beat other women," then shit-a-brick you shudder to think what on earth his picture of feminist normalcy looks like.
But Emma used that very stick to beat Beyonce. That's my point. https://t.co/EEh83ayOUt— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 6, 2017
No. They 'demean' women, apparently.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 6, 2017
But actresses who strip naked always say it's 'art'. https://t.co/F4wZMFf9Si
Emma Watson just went topless to sell her movie, having criticised Beyonce for doing same to sell an album. Hypocrisy? https://t.co/wqMkiIzyr0— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 6, 2017
OK. Then perhaps Emma can now apologise to Beyonce for saying there was a 'conflict' between HER feminism & nudity? https://t.co/IMtzpPMu2e— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 6, 2017
