Emily Ratajkowski says her chest size has prevented her from getting roles

Emily Ratajkowski continually inspires us with her efforts to embrace her sexuality andmaintain a strong, feminist voice. It?€?s 2017, so it?€?s time about dang time we as a society learned that women can be smart, capable, and sexy. Right? Well, despite Emily?€?s attempts to start tipping the scale in the other direction, Ratajkowski says her breast-size has prevented her from getting roles. And this bums us out.

During a recent interview with Harper?€?s Bazaar Australia, Emily says:

?€?There?€?s this thing that happens to me: ?€?Oh, she?€?s too sexy?€?,?€? she says. ?€?It?€?s like an anti-woman thing, that people don?€?t want to work with me because my boobs are too big. What?€?s wrong with boobs? They?€?re a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue??€?


Wow. This sucks. We totally agree, Emily.


Luckily, she has a good support system. She says her musician boyfriend, Jeff Magid, has her back.???€?My boyfriend is super confident and was raised by his mum,?€? Emily explains, ?€?so he also genuinely loves and admires women. Not just ?€?Oh yeah, women are cool?€?. He deeply loves and respects women, so he loves what I?€?m all about.?€?

We?€?re happy you have him, Emily!


In the essay she penned for Lenny Letter, she laments that when women exhibit sexuality, it?€?s often seen as ?€?playing into men?€?s desires.?€? She also has talked about how she??hates the term ?€?attention whore?€?. Sigh. She explains in Lenny:

?€?The implication is that to be sexual is to be trashy because being sexy means playing into men?€?s desires. To me, ?€?sexy?€? is a kind of beauty, a kind of self-expression, one that is to be celebrated, one that is wonderfully female. Why does the implication have to be that sex is a thing men get to take from women and women give up??€?

Amen, Emily. We hope that things start changing soon.
