Emily Ratajkowski reportedly split from her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard last month, but neither the model nor the actor/producer have confirmed their split.
However, in a new series of TikTok videos, the 31-year-old mother-of-one has admitted to being ‘a recently single person who is thinking about dating’.
The Gone Girl star, who shares one-year-old son Sylvester with Bear-McClard, opened up about her relationship status while fiercely discussing the patriarchy and the sexualisation of women.
‘Under a patriarchy, there’s this premise of men “getting women”, “getting them”, “pulling them” like there’s something to posses,’ Ratajkowski explained in a post on September 5.
She then added: ‘As a recently single person who is thinking about dating and stuff, I’ve really seen that with my friends and with the conversations around it.’
The star stressed that comments about relationships should instead revolve around having a ‘reciprocal mutual relationship where two people could potentially foster love’.
She affirmed: ‘That’s why we don’t have a lot of love in cis-hetro relationships. [sic]’
Ratajkowski also reacted to a clip of psychotherapist Esther Perel talking about ‘the secret of female sexuality’ in which she said: ‘If she can think about herself then she can be into it.’
The model said in response: ‘This is so true, and it’s because women have internalised the male gaze so much that when we’re having sex we’re thinking about how hot or not we are.
