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!
