So, why did I go to urban dictionary for the definition of Feminism?
I got my Cosmo in the mail and while the fashions are fun some gaudy others worthy of a second look or two most are out of my price range but then when I see the hair and beauty products well now that is a whole different response entirely. Then, an article about feminism popped up and yes folks are questioning Beyoncé among others with headlines such as … “Can you be Sexy and a Feminist” or as Cosmo asks, “Can you be a Sexy Feminist? It was a quick read and in all honesty I don’t spend a whole lot of my time dissecting labels, but I will say that being a feminist used to be defined as a woman who didn’t appreciate men some said they despised them. I don’t subscribe to hating on men, I like men on several levels, admit that dancing to music with lyrics that say negative things about women is not a great thing because I do get upset about their meaning as well. However, it does appear that the word feminism and or being a feminist in this 21st society is ever changing ever evolving to being about a belief in equality and the rights of everyone. Cosmo asked stars like lady gaga, lana del rey and taylor swift just to name a few, but when Pharrell was asked he stated, “I don’t think it’s possible for me to be (a feminist). I’m a man, but I do support feminists.”
Anyway, an article worth reading in Cosmo September 2014 ~~ Nativegrl77
What do you think? Is being a feminist gender specific?
