Ms. Magazine Puts Beyonce On Their Cover Delegitimizing Any Claim To Feminism For Money

Update: I wanted to make sure readers understood the seriousness of how attaching any labels related to women’s empowerment in using a Trojan Horse compromised representative will cause far-reaching damage to the black women in particular who embrace it. Other women in protected groups can afford to toy with concepts because they have a safety net in place..

Delegitimization is the process which undermines or marginalizes an entity by presenting value judgments as facts which are construed to devalue legitimacy. It is a self-justifying mechanism. (Wiki)

Delegitimization Theory describes a “categorization of groups into extreme social categories which are ultimately excluded from society“. (Wiki)

Who is more likely to be excluded? I contend this is yet another form of post-BWE undermining meant to derail progress.

This won’t take long. The editors of  Ms. Magazine just sacrificed any shred of credibility they had left on the altar of short-term financial gain in using Bouncy as the embodiment of their ‘movement’ (see their tag line). They used a stock photo and didn’t actually interview her, so it exposes such folly as a desperate attempt at promoting fake Girl Power for profit.

It’s good to know where people stand on certain issues. I’ve cancelled subscriptions for less heinous offenses, so lucky me my wariness at buying into a ‘movement’ that I’ve long questioned yielded good results since I won’t have to.

I heard about but didn’t watch the Beyonce television special that aired Thursday evening.  I find her music utterly boring and know that no matter how popular she is today (in part due to hard work and her appearance) it will not endure decades from now. Plus her videos offend me. Cheap titillation for the masses works for the masses not for individual enlightenment. It really irritates me to hear people bestow icon status to someone who was at the right place at the right time (after Aaliyah’s death) and positioned accordingly.

So I really hate to admonish some of you but you leave me no choice. I’m all for being free, proud of your body, footloose and fancy free but come on! Yup, it’s time to break out my ruler and rap some knuckles. Honestly many of you should know better. In fact many of you DO know better but no matter. You like what you like. Despite all progressive agenda fighting and declarations of outrage over inequality you simply like to see a black woman shaking her a**. Oh and other women of color too – but hands down it’s black women for the win loss.
