The above video was found through this post, and highlights a fundamental issue, concerning how to conduct one's self on the internet.
Many young ladies, drunk off of the wine of youth and left with the sense that in the 21st century, you can do ANYTHING and not suffer consequences, have taken to behaviors on the internet that are simply not becoming.
They cry "slut-shaming" if you attempt to inform them that spreading their ladybits while lying on their backs and then posting the images to the internet for anyone to see is not a good idea.
I don't believe in "slut-shaming". To be blunt, I don't believe you can shame the unashamed. However, I do think it's worth noting that in today's increasingly digital world, a woman cannot afford to be coy or stupid, or to pretend that the ideals of feminism are reflected by immediate reality (SPOILER: They aren't.)
FACT: If the first impression a man has of you is that you are a sex object, because that is the image you put forth of yourself, then that is the image that is going to stick.
FACT: More and more employers are including the online activities of their prospective employees as part of their background checks for jobs.
FACT: There are consequences in the non-digital world for actions and events in the digital world; despite your efforts to "compartmentalize" your "online" and "IRL" behavior, they are not separate things.
This is why I am not about to put anything regarding my body parts online, and why I'm happy that my name is an odd combination of common and extremely rare (basic first and last name, very specific middle and hyphenated ending). Nothing really pops up for me aside from my artwork.
So the basic impression is, "Wow, she's a nice artist!" :D
I am not about to hinder that by cyber prostitution, and I don't advise anyone else do the same, especially as a black woman.
It's a stone cold fact that our image is not protected, and regularly drug through the mud. Who the heck in their right mind would contribute to negative stereotypes regarding black women as hypersexual cattle?
It's a no-go for any woman with class, decency, and a sense of self-respect.
If you don't want to be confronted with your virtual dirty laundry, the best bet is to simply not have any.
