Okay Lady Gaga seems pretty cool on the surface. I mean she’s about the most avant-garde thing in pop music since Madonna or Cyndi Lauper. She’s a LGBT advocate and she’s breaking the ground about perception of female beauty. I must applaud her for these things alone.
But than I saw this…
Here’s the quote :
“You see, if I was a guy, and I was sitting her with a cigarette in my hand, grabbing my crotch and talking about how I make music ’cause I love fast cars and fucking girls, you’d call me a rock star. But when I do it in my music and in my videos, because I’m a female, because I make pop music, you’re judgmental, and you say that it is distracting. I’m just a rock star.
Are you also a feminist?
I’m not a feminist – I, I hail men, I love men. I celebrate American male culture, and beer, and bars and muscle cars…”
Okay, so, what she’s saying she doesn’t want the criticism that comes with of being an empowered woman, but by no means is she willing to be associated with the F-word? Not very edgy. She gets the double standard that female artist face but refuses to address the issue. I’m surprised that she is that fearful of the stigma.

The Vagina Monologues at Hunter College were amazing!!!
I want to thank every women who preformed tonight, many of whom blew Eve Ensler away.
I fell in love with each and every one of you. You are the locus of goodness and pussy power/cunt power/ righteousness/ good.
I am so excited to be at Hunter this time next year. I think any ideas I had about going to another CUNY school were totally dismissed tonight.
Pending essay completions review to follow
Tonight was the last night at Hunter but you should all go see a V-day event near you… until the violence stops.
Recently someone posted a response to a status update on my Facebook asking if it were necessary to stop shaving my armpits in order to attend The Young Feminist Leadership Conference in Washington DC.
This statement says a lot. First and most obviously it says that all feminist are ‘hairy armed’. Second it implies that to be allowed admission into a feminist event one cannot fit into the current aesthetic of feminine beauty. Now, it perpetuates the concept of the “ugly feminist”. Okay I know what you’re going to say. “Just because I want to have the same equal human rights as the next fella, to be paid the same, to not have an unpaid ‘second shift’ after work, to feel my job safe if I chose to have children, to know my culture status is not at risk if I do not [etc.] Doesn’t mean I’m ugly!” And you are right. You are beautiful. Most of the men and women involved in feminism are. So, let us examine the myth of the ugly feminist and set the facts straight. Since this is my first post I’d like to start with me. I am 21 years old. I love reading, tea, coffee, art , especially printmaking. I wear dresses. I like pretty things. I wear make-up with some frequency. I like to painting my nails and I shave my pits…There’s more to me but what am I forgetting? Oh right and I AM A FEMINIST! [pardon the caps locks].
Now that’s out-of-the-way. You ask ‘What is a feminist any way?’
1 : the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
But do we still need feminism? Isn’t that, like, a 60’s thing?
So what does a feminist look like?
I’d like to thank the girl who posted the comment, because it was what sparked the need more me to blog this.
Please share feminists that you find beautiful.
