Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.”
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults.
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.

when someone claims to be a fan of a band when they have heard two of their songs
WOW OKAY STOP NOW WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE. YOU CAN BE A FAN OF A BAND JUST FOR LIKING ONE OF THEIR SONGS. LIKING A SONG OF A BAND MEANS YOU LIKE THEIR STYLE OF MUSIC IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, LIKING THEM ACTUALLY MAKES YOU THIS THIS CALLED A FAN SO GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE DOESN’T LIKE THIS ONE CERTAIN BAND AS RELIGIOUSLY AS YOU DO OKAY? JESUS.
