#MyBodyMyTerms

It’s my body. My terms.

I respect myself and I deserve to be respected.

Make decisions that are right for you.

You don’t have to have sex if you don’t want to.

It's your body, your terms.

Don’t do it just to fit in.

Having safe, consensual sex doesn’t make me a ‘slut’.

Taking, or posing for naked photos doesn’t make me a ‘whore’.

Having a naked picture or video of myself with a partner does not give anyone else the right to view it.

When you share private pictures of someone without their consent, you violate them.

When you view private videos of me without my consent, you violate me.

I’m a human being. Not some stranger on a screen.

Just because I express my sexuality, that doesn’t mean I’m asking for it.

My choice of clothing isn’t an invitation to assault or rape me.

Dressing a certain way doesn’t mean she’s asking for it.

If she chooses to drink alcohol it doesn’t make her responsible for the criminal actions of others.

Pressuring someone to have sex is not okay.

When I say ‘no’, I mean it. 

Sex without consent is rape.

It’s my body. My terms.
