Flawless- Beyonce ft. Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche
Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche:
We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls
"You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man”
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes
Another dope electronic track by the anonymous artist/collective affectionately called user601586061, Z, or ZHU around the interwebs. Not easy taking on an Outkast classic. Well played.
A very happy cover friday to you all
"I used to be 425 lbs. Now I work for a nonprofit that promotes physical activity and nutrition in schools."
"What’s one piece of nutrition advice?"
"Here’s what I tell the kids: ‘If you can’t pronounce the ingredients on the label, you shouldn’t be eating it.’"
OH MY FUCKING GODDD
