You can't be sexy and a feminist

The same idea applies to being sexy.

Immodesty Blaze, the burlesque dancer who was on the panel, puts on some very, very sexy shows. Does that stop her from saying she's a feminist? No way!

"I choose to acknowledge my sensuality on stage," she says.

In fact, even on stage during the debate Immodesty was naturally sensual - think Dita Von Teese.

But she's still a feminist. "I run a business and am taken seriously, I haven't felt the pressure to get married young or have children," says Immodesty.

You can be sexy, as long as you are choosing to do it. It's all about having options, and being in control of what you do.

If you want to be a burlesque dancer, that's fine! If you read Cosmo's sex tips on a regular basis, well that's fine too, they even ran their own feminism campaign recently!
