Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless."What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)
We should also note that Black Women are perceived and fetishized as hyper sexual. Which is why mainstream feminists willingly call Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, and Katy Perry revolutionary and in charge of their bodies meanwhile demonizing Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce.
Not Nicki related, but important.
Partition has been stuck in my head ALL WEEK so I decided to make an orchestral arrangement of it. Hope you guys like it! It’s up on Bandcamp where it’s up for free!
There’s also a set your price option where you can help me with my impending doom with student loans.
Hope you guys like it. ^-^
You wanna know what scares people? Success. When you don’t make moves and when you don’t climb up the ladder, everybody loves you because you’re not competition.

It’s funny how people start fangirling over nick jonas (and many other male celebrities), but said it’s disgusting for many other female celebrities who did the same.Oop
