Japanese anime artist Sky-FreeDom created illustrations wherein women are taking a photo of themselves in front of a mirror without clothing. One finger is held up to make sure no nipples can be seen. Another finger is covering the women’s vagina. These are the poses women all over the world are now emulating.
YouTuber Aimee Davison even posted a quick tutorial of how to do this, for anyone interested.She also did it herself.
One finger selfie challenge Vs. Mannequin challenge
If Mannequin challenge are performed by regular netizens and celebrities alike, posting away their versions without qualms on their social media, will some celebrities post their version of the One Finger Selfie challenge too? Will more regular persons do this too?
The Mannequin challenge even aided social causes. According to Fast To Create, a Belgian Charity carried out the Mannequin challenge video to call attention to the struggles of those diagnosed with ALS.
The camera taking the video pans around a lab until it lands on an ALS patient that sits, unmoving, with a sign. The sign reads, “every day is a Mannequin Challenge for ALS patients.” This is certainly sobering.
