How Anushka Manchanda Shut Down Trolls Who Slut-Shamed Her For Supporting #FreeTheNipple

Published on 7 January, 2018 at 9:59 pm By

Singer/ Actor Anushka Manchanda recently took to Instagram to join the #FreeTheNipple movement and posted three powerful posts which spoke about equality and how despite living in the 21st century, there are few things accepted if a man does it and considered criminal if a woman does it.

Sharing her story and how she came to write such a thing, Anushka wrote a detailed post as to how she came to this topic and how it shocked her to learn that despite living in 2018, there was discrimination not only in the real world but online as well.

She made it absolutely clear to let the readers know that she understood that it’s impossible and absolutely unsafe for a woman to go out with her nipples bared, but pointed out that even online on platforms, such as Instagram and on Facebook, which allow more freedom than real life, there is huge discrimination.

Giving an example she added that online is “our safe place” and how its a place where many can express without fear and yet this discrimination exists.

(set 3) (swipe left) 'Historically, women have sometimes been arrested or charged with public indecency, disturbing the peace, or lewd behaviour for baring their breasts in public' While it is perfectly acceptable for a man to go topless :-/ . A conversation that started with a friend..over a photo that was reported on @instagram and taken down because the woman's nipples were visible in it..got me thinking. This little photo story is a result of that. It ridiculous, that the same people who get offended by the sight of a woman's nipples have absolutely no problem with men showing theirs? nipples = nipples nipples = nipples There are bigger, more horrific issues that women deal with on a daily basis, by the second. But here, on a platform that urban earthlings use daily..let's start small. This is not just about a nipple. This is about EQUALITY. #freethenipple

While Anushka made a detailed and reasonable argument about the topic, the hashtag didn’t go down well with many and they immediately jumped the gun looking at the hashtag and instead of reading the whole post starting trolling and slamming Anushka for her “thought.”

Instagram

But Anushka was not going to take this lying down and posted a powerful reply which not only shut the trolls down but also exposed the hypocrisy of the online world…as it was soon taken down by Instagram for not following the “community guidelines.”

 

AND IT HAPPENED. Oh the irony 😂😭 . #freethenipple #equality

She along with her response had once again tried to explain what she was talking about and made it clear that she in no way was promoting woman going topless. She said…

I HAD to post this. Thank you @naujawan this is hilarious! And sadly the truth. To all the MORONS here who think I’m doing this because I want to post topless photos of myself..you’ve totally missed the point. 
I can post topless photos of myself ANYWAY. I will do what I want, I don’t need anybody’s permission for it you see because it’s MY BODY. This movement is about EQUALITY. This movement is about women getting the SAME RIGHTS as men. This movement is about FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
About women EMPOWERING themselves to be who they want without judgement.
Do you know women get paid less than a man for the same amount of work?
Do you know society still expects a woman to drop her career when she gets married?
Do you know that because feminists have fought for you women can now get their rightful inheritance? They can file for divorce? Because of asking for equality now more women can get an education, be financially independent and support themselves? That dowry has been criminalised?
Ladies..we owe A LOT to the feminists. As Arundhati Roy said in an interview with @otherwarya (that really changed how I felt about feminism)…”I get so annoyed when I hear “cool” young women say ‘I’m not a feminist.’ I mean, do they know what battles were fought? Every freedom we have today, we have because of feminists. Many women have fought and paid a huge price for where we are today! It didn’t all come to us only because of our own inherent talent or brilliance. Even the simple fact that women have the vote, who fought for that? The suffragettes. No freedom has come without a huge battle. If you’re not a feminist, go back to into your veil, sit in the kitchen and take instructions. You don’t want to do that? Thank the feminists.“She goes on to say “It’s wonderful to see the emerging independence of women in India, but then there’s this dark undercurrent of conservatism running parallel to this revolution. Remember the women in Afghanistan? When we were growing up, they were doctors and surgeons, they partied and wore cool clothes. And now? We have to be alert to the dangers. We can be set back by centuries in no time at all.”
NEVER FORGET

For those who don’t understand the #FreeTheNipple movement please read this article and understand that the movement is now actually about women to openly showing their breasts/nipples but having the choice to like men and not be penalised for it.
