Feminism is Whatever Emma Watson Says It Is

So here's the upshot. Emma Watson, who is starring in the upcoming remake of Beauty and the Beast, posed for some semi-topless pics for Vanity Fair or one of those magazines. And some feminist types criticized her for posing for such pics because she's a feminist. But clearly, those feminists who criticized Hermione for not being feministy enough don't understand feminism. Got that?

Yahoo:
When Emma Watson was featured on the cover of the latest issue of Vanity Fair, with an accompanying spread that sees her braless with a cutout top, she got a fair bit of criticism online from all sides. And while the star of Beauty and the Beast had not responded before, she recently did on a press junket interview for the new film. “Is there a controversy about this?” she asked sarcastically.

“It just always reveals to me of how many misconceptions and misunderstandings there [are] about what feminism is,” the 26-year old told the BBC about the reaction to the Tim Walker photograph. “Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality.”
So you see, you Neanderthal, that you can't do anything wrong as a feminist. It's all about having the choice to do what you want. So therefore feminists can't make a wrong decision.

Except one. You can be pro-life. That'll get you kicked out of the club right quick.
