National Center on Sexual Exploitation VP of Advocacy and Outreach, Haley Halverson posted a Facebook Live Video about how the Sport's Illustrated 2018 Swimsuit Edition is a slap in the face to the #MeToo movement.
This campaign is a futile attempt to jump on the Me Too movement bandwagon, and it’s totally counterproductive. The magazine is using softcore pornographic images of women with words “of their own choosing” painted all over their bodies in lieu of clothing to show that they’re more than just body parts. It’s completely senseless.
If you have to paint the word “human” on the very woman you’re objectifying to prove that she is in fact a human, and not just an object for men’s sexual pleasure, you’re doing it wrong."
