I feel really tense because of this conversation.
I just can't find an answer that would satisfy me,yet.
They both can be damaging but I think the approaches themselves would differ.
Because on one hand we talk about an industry or the other hand we are talking about individuals.
Those studios (like marvel, DC, Netflix, and some many more)are known worldwide, so are many people who started having from 1 subscriber or 2 but now they have millions or even more.
Another thing is that we have both celebraries and ordinary people who post suggestive pictures.
It's not quite the same, given that celebraries (like Picker Rockelle, Rihanna) will have more views than someone like me for example.
And I am not sure how feminists are supposed to deal(not the best word, but nothing better came out).
When you try to point out what is wrong with certain film studios, model houses and so on, you usually don't address a single individual, but the whole, you can mention certain people that play a bigger in those industries and ask, make petitions, threaten with your wallet, having them fear the risk of becoming irrelevant, and so on.
Let's take modeling houses for example, feminists (but not only) can criticise those houses, the fact that many of their models are tall,skinny, white and young, not having much diversity, thus creating unrealistic and maintaining standards for women (and men), that is some racism or homophobia lurking around, maybe they are discrimitory against older models or bigger or shorter ones.
There is a lot of stuff that must be called out in those industries, unrealistic beauty standards being one of the many
Now celebraries (like Rihanna)many times are both the face and that someone who play a big part in their own business, because of that feminists are able to address the ills of the company. Now feminists absolutely can say to her "hey Rihanna, it would a good thing taking a step back and questioning things would greatly help you both in the short and long run, question what you were taught, question what you have, question what ypu saw in childhood as "ideal", why is that the ideal, etc"
Referring not only to think why she posts suggestive posts, why is she buying certain products, clothing and so on. But also how those things make her feel.
Feminists actually try to make you think more critically about things,think about the bigger pictures.
Now regarding ordinary people who post suggestive pictures, the only realistically things feminists can do is to try to create conversation around this topic.
Similar to my little "question..." a little above.
So instead of caution them, the best bet is to make them think, to question what they have been taught, to question their parents, teachers, classmates, their own beliefs and wants and desires, to question the TV, Instagram, YouTube, the magazines, the books, the adds both on the street and in your phone.
Like you can caution me everyday,buy if I don't understand why caution me, what is it you're worried about that you feel you must caution me, did we achieve anything?
Sure i might think it's not a big thing and you have nothing to worry about. I might listen to you and not post anything suggestive.
But I still don't know why, and just because something seems or is obvious to you, it doesn't mean it is to me
But prompting me to think for myself will cause me to see what you're and many more things you just haven't noticed yet.
Now feminists can and i think they already do spread this piece of information but unfortunately not everyone will come across it.
