Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

So for those unfamiliar with the situation: Grace Helbig is a brilliant online video creator and could until recently be found at the DailyGrace channel.
But that channel, and all the videos on it, were not owned by Grace. They were owned by a company, My Damn Channel.
Now, in order to have ownership and control over her stuff, she has to leave the channel that she built up to 2.5 million subscribers and start over on YouTube. 
But her viewers—and the YouTube community at large—has rallied around Grace as a creator: Her new channel already has over 230,000 subscribers (JOIN US). This is Tim’s real sister.
Meanwhile, the DailyGrace channel, which will now feature reruns of old Grace videos for which she will be (I assume) paid nothing, has lost more than 100,000 subscribers in the past week. This is Tim’s corporate entity sister.
Here’s the lesson: Many corporations think that by owning YouTube channels, they’ll have something valuable. But the value is not in the channel or in the number of subscribers. On YouTube, despite the corporatization of everything, the value is in people.
I’m not a DailyGrace fan. I’m a Grace Helbig fan. And at least on YouTube, the individual still has more power than the corporation. 
That’s worth celebrating. 
p.s. Subscribe to Grace! (The person, not the corporate entity.)

If you don’t get this post I find it EXTREMELY hard to fuck with you.

Amazing art or not you should never post art you didn’t do without a fucking source. How many times do we have to preach this simple rule on this site? 

These are by Jed Henry whose website you can find here, where you will find more of his work.
