#freebritney + 1st ever forum topic post

so, i'm sure many of u r familiar w/ the #freebritney movement. it's a movement that will not only fight 4 britney spears' freedom, but it also brings awareness 2 the meaning of a conservatorship and also fights 4 the freedom of other people that r under a conservatorship, specifically amanda bynes. amanda bynes has also been in a conservatorship since mid-2013.
britney spears has been in a conservatorship since early 2008, and has since been stripped of her basic human rights (i.e. driving cars, getting married, using a phone, having children, leaving the us, drinking alcohol, hiring an attorney of her desire, voting, posting on her social media, and buying a coffee). it's disgusting.
her family and business manager, lou taylor, have full control over her finances and her life in general, and 2 this day, have refused to step down.
it's a long and complicated story, so i would suggest doing research and educating urselves if u have not done so already. there r many twitter threads, youtube vids, instagram posts, news articles, and all that good such discussing the issue, but basically, britney does not have any control over her life, her career, her finances, her mental health, and even the custody of her own children.
the #freebritney movement has been blowing up and gaining the recognition it rightfully deserves for the past 2 yrs now, and many fans have shown full support, as well as many celebrities and people that were close w/ britney @ one point, such as miley cyrus, britney's former assistant felicia culotta, paris hilton, lindsay lohan, missy elliott, will.i.am, sarah jessica parker, bette midler, kathy najimy, and jameela jamil among others.
@ this point, anyone that says that they support the #freebritney movement, yet have not done ish in showing their support, and continues 2 profit off of britney during these times, i will not believe them. i don't have 2 name any names bc i'm sure everyone can think of a bunch of those ppl just off the top of their heads.
we all owe so much 2 britney, and we owe her a big apology. she deserves better! we need 2 fight 4 her freedom, let her b a free woman, and let her live her life the way she wants.
so, when i say #freebritney, I MEAN THAT W/ MY ENTIRE CHEST! britney should not b locked up or treated as a product 2 b marketed. we need 2 help stop this madness! do ur part 2 dismantle this ish!
