"...feminist girls may get pleasure from looking at the bodies of their favorite female models while simultaneously rejecting the ways in which women's bodies are textually constructed to be looked at; they might think critically about their own bodies, at the same time holding to the notion that women ought to accept--even celebrate--their own natural body shapes. Such contradictions are characteristic of girls' and women's everyday experience. Girls and women constantly take up contradictory subject positions, taking simultaneously different meanings from/of images, texts and themselves."
