I feel like there are valid criticisms of Beyonce but that is not one of them. Actually, one of my teachers teaches a black feminism class where she apparently drags Beyonce and I kinda wanna take it and see what she has to say. I've talked to some feminists about the sexualization of popstars and they make a couple points against it that at least lead to good discussion, but calling someone a slut is not the way to go. Either way it's limiting the choices of women and it's annoying. Feels like we can never win tbh
it all really depends on your interpretation of sex positivity, and also, i guess, whether you think bey's framing of such in marriage (a patriarchy's institution) is a conservative, patriarchical act

Yeah. There's nothing wrong with disagreeing with hypersexualization in music. You can discuss sex and/or be sexual in regards to music but it also can be expressed in different ways. It's OK to not like it and at least explain why. But the severity and the aggression in the choice of words and phrasing here just seemed more condescending and rude than anything. They can't be taken seriously if they talk like that.

I do think it largely comes down to views on sex positivity. I side eye some things on her album and I don't agree with Beyonce's feminism all the time and I think she's open to criticism just like everyone else (despite some acting like she's the queen who can do no wrong), but there's a way to have this discussion without calling someone a slut and Warpaint failed to actually say anything interesting or worthy of discussion. It's really telling that they just resorted to sexist language (or Theresa, I suppose, since it's her interview).

What is the point of getting outraged over words? Who honestly cares about this?

yeah, there's a conversation to be had about it all. i'm a very unabashed fan of her, but even i recognize the shortcomings in her particular brand of feminism..."ban bossy" or whatever comes to mind

Words shape everything we know and understand. Actions are important and obviously have impact, but we even explain those with words.

This sounds like some tear away daily calendar horseshit.

I doubt Beyonce and her net worth give a damn what this chick has to say

She definitely could have gone have about that a different way and not called her a slut.

Also, one person's opinion doesn't necessarily reflect the other members views on this subject.
