Girl Power?

OlympiaI have noticed as of recently an ongoing trend of female empowerment on social media, and pretty much everywhere you look from well-meant particulars and organizations alike, which want to spread the message across that women are not only powerful and worthy of respect, but our equals. I for one agree with all of these concepts, since I feel for far too long women have been objectified, ignored and considered nothing short but second grade citizens to be subjugated and controlled by the male minority, for far too long considered stronger and superior.

With all of this said and after being literally spammed with messages of female empowerment from far and right, I feel that in some cases -and I must stress that not all- the message is getting diluted and slightly out of hand; it is fine and valid to demand equal pay, equal rights and equal opportunities but it is far another one to justify a number of behaviors or messages in the name of feminism.

I can twerk and make it about female empowerment, since I am a woman and a feminist“, “I can go out wearing nothing but a black sheet with a belt, because I am a feminist” and so on. Sorry, but no you seriously cannot have it both ways… you truly cannot objectify yourself and use female subjugation symbols such as twerking -someone kill Miley Cyrus already- and wave the Feminist flag around as your excuse.

This is the same applied concept with gay pride, the one reason I have never been to a pride festival is the lone fact that I may be proud about being gay -and openly so-, but I don’t see how it helps our fight for equality getting drunk in a mayhem and orgy of glitter and near naked men; remember this simple concept, all of you fighting the good fight for equality, LGTB and women alike, anything that sets us apart may celebrate our diversity but also drives us away from equality.

You cannot be considered equals if you make your gender or condition distinctive and an excuse to get away with publicly saying, or even acting a certain way. Anne Rice, Truman Capote, Harvey Milk, Annie Lenox, Sinead O’Connor, Amelia Earheart, Oprah Winfrey, they all fought -or are still fighting- the fight for equality without objectifying themselves or their message… and these are examples worth following, not that Beyonce-twerking-woman, and all of those out there who think that just for being a feminist, you are entitled to get away with pretty much anything, all for the name of female empowerment.
