When Beyonce kicked off her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour two nights ago, wearing her sheer bodysuit with nipples showing, to me she performed the final degradation of her talent; a retrogressive transformation that has taken someone stellar and otherworldly, and made them into something dreadfully familiar and sad.
Variations of Beyonce’s body suit can be found in brothels, strip clubs and red light districts across the world - where sex is for sale and it happens to be dispensed through a woman’s body. That she is a human being with feelings and dreams, perhaps a sister, a mother, a leader, a teacher, a student - ALWAYS - a daughter - all of this can be forgotten. In those surroundings a suit like Beyonce’s would look far from glamorous. Maybe just downright heartbreaking as a woman somewhere becomes an object, available for the gratification of a desire - at a price dictated by her ‘managers’.
Next time you’re presented with a shortlist of people in popular culture who you should spend time with or commend, think about how many young girls want to be just like Beyonce: Beyonce who sings ‘Bow Down Bitch’ and wears sheer bodysuits and high heels, singing about making money and being independent."
Y’all see what a massive pile of shit this is, right? I don’t have to sit here and list out each and every way this woman is completely wrong, right? If I did, it would probably take me about two weeks to wade through the bullshit that is this open letter. Quite frankly, Rakhi Kumar should be ashamed of herself for writing this.
The really sad part is, she’s not alone in her “Beyonce contributes to sex trafficking” line of thought. Nowhere near alone actually. In googling this, another article popped up. Apparently this theory has been around for a long time now.
If you want to know why Black women don’t fuck with White Feminism or why we don’t trust non-Black people when it comes to discussing Black women, here you go.
Oh for fuck’s sake…
And this is why I’m spending less time on blogging. It doesn’t matter what black American women do, we are never ever human.
as a Desi woman, I am embarrased and mortified by this shitastic article which shits on a black woman and links her to sex trafficking. Rakhi Kumar should have known better.
So… as a Desi woman of color, I want to apologize for another Desi woman’s stupid ass fuckery ignorance. I just want to scream at her for shitting on black women.
A black woman embraces her sexuality and suddenly she’s the main contributor to sex trafficking…..
