On Friday, @AmberRose posted a picture of herself nude from the waist down, with her pubic hair on full display. Instagram quickly deleted Rose's post, due to its strict no-nudity policy. The image still remains on Twitter, however. There was a deeper meaning behind this post that many may have missed — in a time when pubic hair is inching toward being normalized, with women like Emma Watson and Ashley Graham speaking out about having it, Rose's post is one more tactic to remove the stigma around the existence and visibility of women's pubic hair. Additionally, the post raised awareness for her third annual Slut Walk, with Rose adding the hashtag AmberRosesSlutWalk to it. Writing on Instagram after her original post was deleted, Rose doubled-down on her original intent: "When IG deletes ur fire-ass feminist post but you really don't give a fuck because everyone picked it up already." She signed off with the hashtags AmberRosesSlutWalk and BringBackTheBush. Rose got heat from some followers, and most notoriously, @ThePiersMorgan, who attempted to shame her, but the internet clapped back. To continue this fight to end the stigma against pubic hair, people are participating in the AmberRoseChallenge, where people post pictures of themselves similar to her original post, but a bit more censored, using wigs and other things to cover their crotch. By posting that selfie, Rose actually showed exactly why events like her Slut Walk, which centers around women owning and claiming their sexuality and putting an end to slut shaming, need to exist.
