Literally since Beyonce stepped back on the scene I’ve heard so many arguments about Black women’s respectability and “being a lady” and hella bullshit that basically says:
If you don’t respect yourself why do I have to respect you
Which translates to: I can rape women who I consider to be hoes because they don’t respect themselves anyway.
Which makes me suspect of you as being morally bankrupt.
Because I can walk outside and cross the street and be considered a hoe.
This is particularly in regards to black women.
- Beyonce: *burps*
- Stans: Yes, bitch!!!!! Slay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You better kill the burp game, goddamnit!!!!!!! Keri Hilson who?????????????????? Seventeen Grammys!!! Ending careers and snatching wigs, it's nothing!!! You hoes can't take!!! Werq!!
- Beyonce: *burps*
- Haters: This bitch contributing to global warming. She ain't have that baby. Why she had to kick LaTavia and LeToya and LaHaterade and Leona Lewis out the group, though? Stupid bitch. She stole that burp. She ain't write that burp! This bitch can't act worth a damn. Burn in hell, Illuminati Priestess bitch.
I think this is an important read for people who are following this story. Just to gain insight about why some people may feel some type of way about Jay z and Beyonce’s travel to Cuba.
But I don’t agree with how the conservative politicians were all on their dicks about whether their trip was legal or not. I don’t think a pair of the most celebrated and recognized celebrities would make an illegal trip.
Some have been saying that Beyonce’s upcoming Mrs. Carter tour is anti-feminist because she took her husband’s last name for it…. *insert more dictating and policing of Beyonce’s personal choices*
But I’d like to quickly note that there was a time in history where Black women were not allowed to have “Miss” or “Mrs” on their names because of our supposed deviant sexuality (the Jezebel image).
So while you’re all busy being concerned about eurocentric ideological feminism, take a step back… and try to imagine the idea that a Black woman with agency wants to take advantage of something that was previously denied to us based on racist gendered beliefs.
Try to look at this as a “Slut Walk”. A reclaiming of sorts. A middle finger to racists everywhere that says “Yea I am sexual being and I am still a woman and not devoid of morality so I can call myself Mrs. Whateverthefuck and you will deal”.
Praise be to Sesali!!
You must not know bout me, I can have another you in a minute.
I really like Beyonce. But I hate when people refer to her as King B rather than Queen B. Firstly, because she’s a woman and there’s no need to take away her femininity. Secondly, it just goes to show that people rank Kings above Queens, which is to say being male is a greater compliment than being a woman. This takes me back to a qoute in Full Frontal Feminism:
“What’s the worst possible thing you can call a woman? Don’t hold back, now. You’re probably thinking of words like slut, whore, bitch, cunt (I told you not to hold back!),skank. Okay, now, what are the worst things you can call a guy? Fag, girl, bitch, pussy. I’ve even heard the term ‘mangina.’ Notice anything? The worst thing you can call a girl is a girl. The worst thing you can call a guy is a girl. Being a woman is the ultimate insult. Now tell me that’s not royally fucked up.” — Jessica Valenti
Let Beyonce reign as a Queen!
