You don’t get a free pass on using dead sisters for political gain.

The End Demand campaign’s choice to use photographs of women, semi dressed, gained without their consent, to create a fake escort site sickens me. Our dead sisters are NOT a political football for you to kick around the Internet to have your “Aha! She’s dead!” moment with sex buyers. Feminist Current’s supportive and ignorant coverage of this campaign leaves me so disappointed. I feel like I’m going to throw up.

LET IT BE KNOWN, IF A MAN EVER MURDERS ME, NO FEMINIST HAS THE RIGHT TO PHOTOGRAPHS OF MY OBJECTIFIED BODY TO SELL AN ILLUSION TO MEN. NOR DO THEY HAVE MY BLESSING TO USE MY DEATH AS A SPECTACLE.

If you come into my commentary section to ask for peace, reconciliation and openness with other feminists I’ll aim my vomit your way. Meghan Murphy has no inclination to discuss this with women who disagree with her, she’d rather battle misogynistic trolls, and continue to run her site the way her politics see fit. And that’s her business. And it’s your business if you support these editorial decisions or not.
