A.) A individual “challenging” someone is not “shaming” them… nor does citing an anecdote from a responder clarify the position you took with, “But that’s the thing about some aspects of modern-day feminism — it completely condemns the past without considering the root of the problems we’ve had, which makes us far more likely to repeat our ignorant mistakes.”

B.) Baseless accusations aside, the bottom line is that feminists support you doing what you want with your body. It’s called body autonomy and feminists support it. Period. I hope you find that reassuring.

C.) We are on the same side. If you presented evidence that feminists have initiated a “movement” to shame individual contestants for participating, you’d be 100% correct. That would be anti-feminist bullshit. I’d love to read that article.
