“What will people think?,” has been a question that has riddled a lot of people’s minds. The fear of judgement and rebuke rides high on whatever they think or do, with the result that they are often unhappy. But now, thanks to the liberals that we have come to live among, we have come to break away from our imaginary shackles, and live our lives like we have wanted. Personal choice — of what to wear, what to eat, who to love etc., is now emphasised on us more than ever. But is it also an agenda that is fed to us by marketing agencies and brands around us? Sapna Moti Bhawnani, celebrity hair stylist thinks so.

“It’s no secret that the less clothes you wear on social media the more likes/followers you get. Although it’s visually appealing to see so many naked people on my timeline It’s also very sad to see so many women/men fall prey to this sneaky advertising gimmick of convincing people that it’s liberation and some sort of feminist movement. The brands continue objectifying men and women but now under the pretense of “personal choice.” Ever wonder why there is no “revolution” of putting clothes on instead? And why is fully clothed considered regressive even if personal choice? As a feminist we fight for our right to wear what we want (less or more) when we want and to see brands use that as a way of pimping their products is really shameful. Don’t be a product of some media fueled revolution. To be comfortable in your skin has got nothing to do with taking or keeping your clothes on. “Don’t be a pawn styled like a queen in someone’s else’s’ chess game, Own your own game. Actually fuck games.””
