What’s the difference between Beyoncé and Hillary Clinton?
Beyoncé is the poster child for feminism.
The character that she created (her words) is strong, ready to take on the world and God damn, I believe her. She exudes power. Sex drips off her lips like honey. A pop star. A wonder woman. Not a politician or businesswoman climbing the misogynistic ladder like Elizabeth Warren or Melissa Mayer, or someone who played the game and ran for the highest office in the land, Hillary Clinton. No, I wasn’t a huge fan and she wasn’t my first choice, but she got ridiculed and blasted by women who could not bring themselves to vote for her. I heard time and time again, that she was not feminist enough because she stayed by Bill through his infidelity. That she was a victim, that she was weak. That she did not embody a virtue they could support because she manipulated that fervor for her own gain. Maybe.
But I’d like to know the Venn diagram of those who claim to be feminists, who idolize Beyoncé-millennials I’m talking to you- and those who voted for Trump in the last election. The person who acts on public policy and has devoted her life toward those causes since college lost out on a huge demographic of younger voters because of her personal distractions. After Jay-Z's newest album 4:44, Is Beyoncé still a beacon of strength and power or just a poster for a child?
