Beyonce: Queen Feminist?

At risk of having the entire world turn against me, this needs to be addressed. I will preface by saying that I am not an extremist in any way, but I do hold certain terms in high regard, feminism, being one of them. I am not a man-hater either...and guess what? 
I am independent and strong, yet I still like doors being held for me. It is the gesture not my sense of entitlement or an equality issue as most may argue. Regardless, my point is still relevant before receiving any backlash. 

Beyonce. Oh, good old Beyonce. Queen B, everyone’s goddess of the 21st century, I would like to be the first person in history to put in a complaint. 

Lately, I have been hearing non-stop all about how Beyonce is the poster for feminist views. Her strong sexually explicit lyrics and moves convey she is the one in charge. 
But she is the epitome of women’s equality? So is that the only aspect that defines feminism...

A general definition of feminism is the advocacy of women's "rights" on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. 
Allegedly, according to some elite universities and other “credible” sources in media, the definition of feminism is the idea through which sexualization and money empower women or at least that's what I'm picking up on. 
Am I missing something? Do I have it wrong? Am I the only one who sees it this way? 


I am not even trying to throw hate as I can appreciate her abilities as a songstress/artist leaving her mark in pop culture. ( I mean I would be lying if I said when Crazy in Love comes on I do not clear the dance floor and strut out my ultimate Beyonce walk or push bridesmaids out of the way to catch the bouquet when Single Ladies cues the reception is almost over) Publicly or privately we have all fallen victim to this whether we admit it or not. 
Plus, the very last thing I would ever want to do is backup a point made by FOX News...but 

The VMA’s were a perfect example of evidence as “Feminist” appeared behind her curvaceously skinny body draped in sparkles as she gyrated and snake rolled herself all over the stage. 






Enter eye roll. 
These are the visuals. Her lyrics are her message. Her money buys her power. 
What principles are we actually sending to women, our young girls, our future leaders? What goals and standards are we setting for them?
 Other than how to be viewed by men in a sexually dominate way rather than a demure one...
 Ladies, if we own it then I guess we can use it against them? 
That doesn't sound very equal to me. Using our sexuality to display our power is completely misleading to everything that was taking the original stand. It sounds more like a walking contradiction, a bombshell of a walking contradiction, but nonetheless. 

I am fully aware that I have been making myself sound like an uber Jesse Spano wannabe/a feminist fanatic, but as I develop into a woman I am really starting to understand the line drawn between entertainment and social/cultural boundaries. The distinction between my inner pop-star and what it means to be a dynamic woman focuses deeper than just owning the power of my sexuality and defining that behavior as a form of control.  

The difference between my point and others lies in the fact that I can take her for face value, a diva-licious, “Hot” mama, who owns the stage vs. a groundbreaking beacon of female hope and pride.  Just because she flawlessly Wakes Up Like This, and knows how to Surfboard, does not help me in my life break the barriers and overcome any woman's struggle. 
I'm disappointed in people for glamourizing Beyonce as a feminist and I am not afraid to say it. More importantly, I'm worried that in 2014, they are doing it from an educational standpoint. Very scary.

We do not have royalty in this country so I guess for some reason we have crowned Beyonce. The public has declared no matter what scandal she is in, she can do no wrong, and it will go away. I find this disturbing more than enlightening. Women who believe she supports their goals, dreams, their self acceptance and confidence, I ask you to dig deeper into yourself. 

Please stop saying she is the embodiment of an ideal or even a woman changing the world for the better. She is not making anyone stronger. Lets just chalk it up to what it is, the reality, an above average entertainer. 



Think about it is all I ask?

Shake It Off: Taylor Swifts New Album this October

Shake It Off

This seems to be perfect timing as summer comes to a close and the Ninja Turtle Movie is dominating the box office. Don’t see the connection?
Reminiscent of “Secret of the Ooze” I feel as though Taylor’s new sound is as if every successful pop song came together and formed one SUPER pop song, and I don’t NOT like it. I am immediately transported back to my brace-faced pre-pubescent self, believe it or not, a simpler time.
T-Swift has received a lot of flack from monkey-barring from guy to guy. It was only appropriate she addressed her haters and what better way to do that but to Shake It Off. After all, she is only doing what every single girl her age would be doing. I mean if I was a pop star bachelorette under the age of 25, why wouldn’t you date every celebrity heartthrob you could get your hands on. Then take it one step further and make millions of calling them out on their duchebaggery. It’s an evil genius every girl fantasizes about.

Even as I approach 30, I got your back girl. Love her or hate her, at least she writes her own songs, and her image is consistent with who she is.

Recently I came across a docu-series in which a mother of a ten year old girl was looking to start a movement. Although I am not a mother yet, I completely felt empathy towards this woman and her plight in how we are bringing up our daughters. I am scared to death of raising a daughter one day. This docu-series explored the journey of two different mothers with completely different parenting techniques and two different outcomes. Now I am not saying either is right or wrong, but it really struck a nerve with me on how certain techniques were being justified.
On one hand you had a mother who allowed her 10 year old to “discover” herself and learn to grow into a woman on her own. She “played” and experimented with real makeup, she posed in what I felt was a provocative manner in photos, and seemed to have heavy focus on that fact that this was in good fun. The other mother argued how it was way too young, she should not be exposed in that way, and she was exploiting/incriminating herself as she entered woman hood. Of course whenever any parenting style gets criticized or attacked, defenses come out swinging.
The only thing that really inspired me to write this is how I, myself have felt and currently feel as a woman coming into her own at 28 years old. I have spent most of my life down playing the reality of this until recent situations have made it a certainty. I like to believe our society functions differently but the truth is the evidence is everywhere.
With social media/media in general and how women portray themselves it just seems to me we are instilling the wrong message with our young daughters. Behaviors, attitudes, and beauty that are not real are all being celebrated. They live in a world where they are automatically going to be sexualized. Why are we saying to them at such a young age that this will define their worth? Selfies? Clothing? Dancing? Posing? Beyonce? Kardashian? All of these images add up and that is what girls are putting out there. They will spend the rest of their lives as women fighting that battle.
In a world where women across the globe would die for our freedom and rights, women who want nothing more than an education and a voice, and we have our girls getting their confidence and values with “likes” and “comments” from photos on the internet where they look like ducks, or in this case, ducklings.
As much as we want to point the blame on the men, they are not the problem. It is simply what they have access to. We all are the problem. We know better and need to teach our daughters better, together, as a team. This is for their protection. This is for their dreams. This is for their worth. We cannot take that away from them any longer. Let’s take back our daughters. Teach them what they really have the potential to do in this world.
I know what I look like in a push up bra. I know what I look like in full hair and make-up. I have spent most of my life struggling with how others see me and how I see myself. I know who I am and I am comfortable with it. Others have seen me a certain way and think that is how I should be all the time. People do not realize what they are implying.
I am certainly not saying there is anything wrong in doing what makes you happy and to feel beautiful. But feel beautiful and powerful. Not beautiful and sexualized 24/7. Isn’t there a time and place, an age, a level of maturity, or even a responsibility that we have as grown women to show our daughters the difference?
Let’s face it, we are sexual beings, but when does it become okay. I can’t give you a definitive answer but it is happening way too young for any of us to handle. The positive feedback needs to be addressed. There should be other ways as a society we know how to build up our daughters!
