Listen, Dove Cameron may be Disney Channel’s sweetheart, but she is letting it be known that she is not a little girl!
She is a 23-year-old woman and she is a damn good role model.
Haters, we’re talking to you!
The Descendant’s actress recently posted a photo of herself in a white tank top — with no bra — showing off her nipples.
And yep, people were not here for it. Come on, does 2019 mean anything to you people?!
"Women HAVE a history that has been systematically suppressed," she captioned her empowering image.
"Our collective spirituality has largely been trained to fit the needs of men and those in power."
"This has a profound effect on the self-esteem of girls and the women they become," she continued. Adding, "It also has an effect on the way their future partners will view them — and ultimately treat them."
Cameron, who is an extremely popular role model in today’s world, finished up her hella inspiring post by saying "Our girls deserve better."
"The time to introduce feminism and woman-centered spirituality to ALL children is now."
Most felt empowered by her post, but of course, some people just had to go off. *sighs*
"Feeling empowered w/ no bra on rn bc of this," one follower wrote.
"Take ur f–king bra off if you want," the actress replied. "Don’t hide your natural body. People are weird. Just because it’s ‘the norm’ now to be ashamed of nipples or your period doesn’t mean they are actually bad or embarrassing???"
Unfortunately, not everyone felt that way.
"How is wearing a shirt showing your nipples being a role model?" one commenter wrote.
"I am a parent, my daughter and I have been huge fans of yours, but I don’t see this as inspirational to my daughter’s growth at all."
"Wear a bra," wrote another follower.
"You should not even be on Disney because you’re not wearing a bra. Disney is for dreams and inspiration. This is not. Your job is to bring joy."
The celeb didn’t stutter, ok?! Dove defended herself straight and to the point.
"This is being a role model," she said. "This is exactly being a role model."
We couldn’t agree more.
She also reposted comments from her supporters to her Instagram Story, showing that it’s healthy to share the love and to show off our bodies without shame, if you wish to do so.
Dove’s BF Thomas Doherty also seemed to approve of the photo (of course, he did) as he commented: "thank you god. Amen."
It’s not like this is the first time we have ever seen an A-lister make the decision to #freethenipple and go braless.
In fact, it’s becoming a very popular and trendy fashion choice.
And quite the movement — thanks to Dove and other celebs including Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, and Jennifer Lawrence — just to name literally a few.
