It is sad when reporters or articles get published without proper documentation first. With them out there, there are a lot of people that agree just because they liked agreeing with something.
Thank you Michelle for repeating EVERYTHING the campaign has already said about why “I am not naked” raises the ridiculous issue to promote the important ones.
The bigger irony is that you missed the point of the campaign completely!
Before this campaign, Manal Assi was not known and no one even gave it importance that it deserved that a woman was beaten to death by her husband, when he’s walking free now. Thank you also for finding the time to creating an “against violence” campaign. Ah wait, you didn’t… my bad.
Than you for saying that they’re doing it for their own satisfaction, for a pat on the back.
Three people on the I Am Not Naked campaign actually work with different causes and charities, going from helping people with Down Syndrome, cancerous kids, clown doctors, homeless people, feeding the poor, associations about AIDS awareness, and many more.
Also thank you for predicting the future about justice for Manal Assi and letting us know that it will never be served for either her or the other 24 women.
And thank you for wanting to fight with us for women’s rights (but you didn’t know that as I have carefully read your article…)
As the people behind it also said, Jackie should’ve had support and recognition before the pictures. But sadly she didn’t, because the Lebanese people just waited for her boobs to remember that we have two athletes representing us in Sochi.
You can also apologize to Nemer for telling us that he called the people behind this stupid and dumb. You misunderstood apparently. He disagreed with the people posting on instagram their abs and such using the hashtag to get likes. [misunderstanding fixed after a phone call]
The sad truth is that the people criticizing this campaign expected the team to change the issues needing change in less than a week.
This is day 3 and we’ve made some noise. The next step is on the way, we cannot cross the finish line while we’re still at the beginning.
The Kony campaign did die unfortunately, but how about the Trevor project which actually made a change and is still running for a better world in their country (and worldwide)? We would have rather you focus on positive than negative. I really hope you will be joining us when we launch our more serious campaign to fight for change instead of complaining online.
We also want to thank you for your twitter account, so we can pat you on the back and you can get satisfaction out of writing an article many have agreed to.
