“I'm used to reading articles about whole towns harassing a rape victim until she's forced to leave. I don't want to be used to this. I don't want to be desensitized to what's happening around me all.the.time.”

“The deletion of my account felt like a physical act, like the public coming at me with a razor, sticking their finger down my throat, forcing me to cover up, forcing me to succumb to society's image of beauty.”

AND THEN SHIT GETS REAL: “Do not let this discourage you, do not let anyone tell you what you should look like, tell you how to be, tell you that you do not own your body.”

Oh, and her "Vagina Tee"...yeah it's selling out. Take that, Instagram.
