DANG. That’ll get the message across. The movement is gaining momentum!
if tumblr is worth a crap this will get a million notes±
Considering the conversations I have here about it, Tumblr is worth nothing, given those parameters. The only way this shit will get over 10k is a bunch of fucking whiners crying about their right to kill animals and destroy the environment because they don’t go to SeaWorld, drive a hybrid, and recycle.
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)
