Fantasy remains a human right: we make in our measure and in our derivative mode, because we are made: and not only made, but made in the image and likeness of a Maker.
― J.R.R. Tolkien
The thing about Beyoncé announcing herself as a feminist from upon her throne at the VMAS, wasn’t about selling her image with sexuality as all have tried to denounce her with, but reclaiming her sexuality and informing all girls that they should, to take it back as their own and marring it as something that can no longer be marketable or bankable. It isn’t the main concern of feminism, but it’s one expenditure of the entire body of it that also needs to be tackled.
And I think, as a boy myself, that’s something that’s really important. It changes the girl from the false image as a sheep in the bar as the wolffish boy enforces his sexuality upon her. Beyoncé isn’t milking something that’s suddenly quite powerful in social media such as tumblr, or working for the illuminati as many suggest, but setting an example for her daughter and the future of similar movements. And that’s especially incredible coming from someone with her stature whose using her platform to the best of her ability, and that’s quite comforting when she’s powerful enough for my iPhone to have autocorrected the acute accent over the e at the end of her name.
