Kaley Cuoco Isn't a Feminist -- And Begin
217 days ago

@ Rastah
Read the comment below mine by Alexandra, for maybe a more clear version of what I am saying.
I would say there is cause to view her comments as negligent and potentially harmful. To use the "well I haven't experienced it" card as a way to justify being a non-feminist is rather indicative of her "beliefs" about global womens' issues, though perhaps unintentionally.
I'm also not speaking on adult women who change or base their opinion on what she is saying...I'm talking about young impressionable girls who may read this and feel that it's okay to dismiss feminism based on antiquated ideas of femininity and what feminism is or is not.
My point isn't misguided, it's probably just different from yours. Thanks for the condescension though.

...It's not that it isn't "okay" that she doesn't want to call herself a feminist. What is obnoxious is the bullshit she ties into it, it continues to push an inaccurate definition of what a feminist has to be.
There's this myth that you need to be some man-hating, anti-make-up wearing, etc. etc. monster to be a feminist, and that has NOTHING to do with feminism.
Feminism is simply about equality of the genders. It's harmful to the young girls that may look up to her who will read this or hear about this and associate a movement for gender equality with one person's (wrong) interpretation about what feminism is or isn't.
Additionally, for her to say "I'm not a feminist because I haven't experienced inequality" is a big f*cking middle finger to women all over the globe who experience significantly worse gender-related restrictions or mistreatment. You can believe in racism without experiencing racism against you...I don't see why some people cannot come to this same conclusion about gender inequality.

Surprise: Lana Del Rey is Petty and Awful!

I can't tell from your comment if you actually know the meaning of the term "cutting your teeth" on something, or not...

If not, it means being exposed to something/trying something for the first time...
So what she says literally translates to, "I was exposed to expensive jewelry for the first time in movies." Which completely makes sense in the context of her song.

Anways, all that aside, she's a 17 year old, Lana is 27 so I'm pretty sure she can handle herself.

Taylor Swift's Self-Righteousness is Getting Really Nauseating
545 days ago

I'm glad Taylor feels so empowered through her music and not through the farce that other young pop stars have adopted (i.e. basically putting their vadges on display) BUT, while these comments are relatively sound, hasn't done much of anything to EXHIBIT that 'don't call me crazy' behavior.
You know, like...
Dating people for a few weeks, realizing they aren't right for her and then acting like she lost a great love of her life.
Calling out these people in the middle of award shows.
Constantly taking to social media to brand these individuals as man-whores.
I mean really, I love her and I think she's a great role model for very young girls, but the fact of the matter is that Taylor Swift is...23, 24?...with the emotional maturity of a 14 year old.
Her holier-than-thou 'tude is therefore a little obnoxious...lovely as she may be.
