The real fantasy. 💖😍#Repost @5050by2020
We're DONE with old, white men attempting to manufacture our fantasies. We're leaving body shaming, transphobia, and white-washed versions of beauty behind. When we look up at runways and screens, we wanna see activists like @geenarocero, survivors like @ihartericka, and role models like @yanismarshall.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is a prime example of casting taking the shape of one privileged person's antiquated worldview. #EdRazek – the 70-year-old transphobic, fatphobic 'senior creative' (see: CASTING DIRECTOR) – has held the reins at VS for too long, and his comments this week about who the fashion show is for are dangerous, hateful, and out of touch. If VS plans to keep Mr. Razek high up in its ranks, then we'll plan to #CancelVS. It's not BY us, and it's sure as hell not FOR us.
SHARE & comment below tagging #MakeVSDiverse if you think Mr. Razek and what he stands for should get the boot and be replaced – ideally by a woman, person of color, or LGBT person.
