Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.”
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults.
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.
Your Day Will Come- Streetlight Manifesto
"A young lady leaves her mother, with no one to love her; to protect her from the world. And I have seen the monsters that will haunt her, that will tear her all apart. And at her gravestone we will remember just where we were when you knew she would go. And I still remember the day that we left her, that’s when she said she knows how it goes. And we sang: "your day will come, your day will come, your day will come." And no matter what they say, it won’t matter if you pray or if you sin. Cause in the end it’s all the same…"
And I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling kids and your talking dog
where are my glasses?
