Beyoncé has taken on the issue of feminism again. Although she needs to learn a few things about heterocentricity and cisgender-centricism to complete her knowledge of feminism and what it actually entails, (see: “If I Were A Boy” and “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”) This effort is truly commendable. Check what she had to say: “We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet. Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes. But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change. Men have to demand that their wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters earn more—commensurate with their qualifications and not their gender. Equality will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal respect.”
Price, of all people, has gone done the homophobic road again. Yes, remember when he did this? Well, he is back at it.
In 2008 Prince declared his opposition to same-sex marriage and said that gays got what they deserved in Sodom and Gomorrah. From a New Yorker piece at the time: “When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, ‘God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’
In his new song, Prince sings these lyrics about a girl: “Yesterday I saw you kickin’ it with another girl You was all wrapped up around her waist Last time I checked, you said you left the dirty world Well it appears that wasn’t the case Hey, I see you undercover like the CIA Snatching little wigs from another bouquet – that’s French I guess a man’s only good for a rainy day Maybe your just another bearded lady at the cabaret I wish I never kissed your (spits in disgust) ugh Doesn’t replace the memory.”
That is strike two for him. Should he be allowed another strike? Especially after this album cover?
