Jameela Jamil Calls Out Haters Who Question Her Feminism

Jameela Jamil is not the one to mess with on social media. She’s calling out women who flood her comment section with accusations that she’s “jealous” and “un-feminist” whenever she criticizes another female celeb. Of course, the irony isn’t lost on her. “They are criticizing me when they say these things… do they consider themselves jealous and un-feminist?” she asked.

Jameela frequently accuses the KarJenners of promoting unrealistic body types, as she continues to be a prominent voice in the body positivity movement. Yet, some people see her comments as negative—not positive.

To be clear truly only about 7 people approached me with this over the Kim K post, but it’s a pattern of rhetoric I want to raise awareness about because we are all often accused of these things. The above are delivered by women every time (all of whom fail to see that they are criticizing me when they say these things… do they consider themselves jealous and un-feminist?). You have all watched me take countless public lashings where millions of people pile onto me because I’ve made a mistake about other things. Each of those, while unpleasant, has made me a better and more thoughtful person. Had I just been left to my own problematic devices “because I’m a woman” then I would never have changed. Thank fuck I got called out. And even in my most defensive moments, I never one time accused any of the people criticizing me of being “jealous” or “un-feminist” for doing so. FEMINISM DOESN’T MEAN NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOU’RE SORRY. Feminism means equality, and helping each other evolve and never letting each other harm other women. We can’t force each other to change. But we can invite each other to do so. That’s what criticism is. ❤️

She admits that she’s been insensitive in the past. Her fame means that when she makes mistakes, she’s reprimanded in an overt way. “You have all watched me take countless public lashings where millions of people pile onto me because I’ve made a mistake about other things,” she wrote. “Each of those, while unpleasant, has made me a better and more thoughtful person. Had I just been left to my own problematic devices ‘because I’m a woman’ then I would never have changed.”

She reminded her followers that just because you’re a woman, doesn’t mean you get to do whatever you want without facing repercussions. “FEMINISM DOESN’T MEAN NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOU’RE SORRY,” she continued. “Feminism means equality, and helping each other evolve and never letting each other harm other women. We can’t force each other to change. But we can invite each other to do so. That’s what criticism is.”

Preach.
