Flaws & All: Why Can’t Beyoncé & Olivia Pope be Feminists, too?

I don’t understand why this question even exists about whether or not Beyoncé or Olivia Pope make “good, black feminists”. The question suggests that their possession of flaws (Beyoncé’s hyper-sexuality and Olivia Pope’s adultery, according to some) disqualifies them as feminists. yazinin devamini okumak için linkimize tıklayiniz. http://www.Trkahkaha.com

I don’t understand why this question even exists about whether or not Beyoncé or Olivia Pope make “good, black feminists”. The question suggests that their possession of flaws (Beyoncé’s hyper-sexuality and Olivia Pope’s adultery, according to some) disqualifies them as feminists. When did feminism become equated to having a great morality—especially when morality definitions are subjective?

Feminism: (n) fem-uh-niz-um The advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men (according to Merriam Webster)

Nowhere in the definition does it say “women who don’t engage in adulterous relationships, lie, dress/dance sexy OR make any other mistakes”. Please be informed that these women, though one is a fictional character, inspire feminist practices/beliefs in other women not because of the flaws many highlight but more so in spite of them. I just read an article by my fave, Demetria Lucas, concerning the question of…

OST Drama

Choix de MissWho:

Mon coup de cœur OST pour cette semaine se porte sur un drama que Dushbadou et moi même adorons (vous pouvez d’ailleurs retrouvé la critique anglaise et française sur le blog): Special Affairs Team Ten. Ce drama n’a techniquement pas d’OST officiel. Cependant on remarque au fils des saisons une ou deux chansons récurrentes. Ce que j’aime avec ce drama c’est qu’on a pas forcement besoin d’une musique insistante pour instaurer l’ambiance voulue. Il ne suffit que d’une ou deux chansons bien placées et le résultat est là.

images-horz

La première chanson n’est autre que Breath de Mad Soul Child. Ce titre est uniquement utilisé dans la première saison. La voix lancinante de la chanteuse, Jinsil, et le rythme répétitive de l’instrumentale confère à cette chanson une atmosphère noire qui correspond parfaitement à l’ambiance du drama. Bouleversante et transcendante, Breath se distingue des ordinaires…

The Old Grey Cat

Most mornings, I fall out of bed by 5:30 or 6am, down a cup of coffee (or two) and then I’m out the door and on my way to work. It’s a scene played out everyday in most households, I’m sure, as is what follows: the endless commute. Traffic slows to a stop-and-go crawl, and what should be a zippy 30-minute ride dissolves into an hour-plus drive. And most days, come 5:30 or 6pm, when I’m out the door of my workplace, the journey home takes longer.

It’s when I do most of my music listening.

What struck me the other day, during one such commute: the sound quality of the archival CSNY 1974 release. It’s phenomenal. The songs leap from the speakers as if from the stage to the front row.

As far as the set itself…if you like CSNY you’ll find much in it to enjoy. If you don’t…

Broken Time

Ethereal jazz,
We see the world,

From new angles,
Simple fortitude
Over matted devotions,

Freak downpours
May emphasis
Liquid blues today,

But thunder
Plays stray therapy…

"You must suffer me to go my own dark way"

Ethereal jazz,
We see the world,

From new angles,
Simple fortitude
Over matted devotions,

Freak downpours
May emphasis
Liquid blues today,

But thunder
Plays stray therapy
And hydration pleases the land,

Alteration soothes the soul,
Without gills to drown
Divinity augments,

Bamboo hearts
Jive in the wildest
Of plantations

Will I find you there?
Hidden in shaded constancy,

The quartet sounds
Our pace again,
I find us within the notes.
