Beyoncé feminist essay

For the most part I stay completely out of the ‘media’ – the stupefying, intellect-reducing, mind control device it is, but I recently saw beyonce (who I confess I hardly know, I believe she is a singer, but I have no idea her songs or even what she looked like until I looked it up) wrote some feminist essay about sex equality.  I thought there was a CHANCE it might have been pro-male or perhaps pro-FEMININE, so I looked…nope.  Imagine my surprise that this singer who makes god knows how many millions dares complain that life wasn’t fair to her because she was a women.

Titled: Gender Equality Is a Myth!

“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.”

This is the first line, of the so called ‘essay’ and it recycles the same tired lines that are easily disproved. (http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2012/04/16/its-time-that-we-end-the-equal-pay-myth/)

“Humanity requires both men and women, and we are equally important and need one another. So why are we viewed as less than equal?”

This is a typical logic fallacy of stating one thing, then concluding another.  She states something hard to disagree with “humanity requires both men and women” yes, biologically it does.  Then concludes with no assertions, that women are viewed as less equal.  Structurally, this is unsound, and when you factor in the simple reality that a female is worth more than a male, it is viewed as ludicrous.

“These old attitudes are drilled into us from the very beginning. We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.”

Ahh, rarely do you see the true intentions of feminists so clearly on display, where men/boys will be beaten into submission under the guise of ‘equality’ and women/girls will be elevated far beyond their actual worth.  Think about this simply from a structural argument again, group a (boys in this case) she argues must be taught ‘rules’ to that they will grow up ‘equal’. Whereas group b, they are taught ‘to reach as high as humanly possible’.  There is NO equality here.  If she had a statement like ‘we must teach boys and girls to both reach as high as possible’ she might have a fair argument, but again, its not in feminist’s interest to see guy’s go anywhere.

“We have a lot of work to do, but we can get there if we work together. Women are more than 50 percent of the population and more than 50 percent of voters. We must demand that we all receive 100 percent of the opportunities.”

Hahah, I wonder if she simply did not realize what she was saying, or if the slip was unintentional.  First, the argument that numbers = representation is one feminist’s use often when it suits them, but discard when it does not.  They LOVE to hammer on low women CEO %s, senators etc – because they have the numbers.  But when its things like video games – where it is something like 80-90% of players are guys, their numbers=representation argument disappears even though they still demand girls look more ‘realistic’ in games, or that there are more games catered to girls etc.  Cake and eating it too I guess.

Lastly, her statement ‘We must demand that we all receive 100 percent of the opportunities.’ was perhaps never a truer admittance of feminist’s ultimate goals.  Really, if males could be extinguished and the race continues they would be pursuing that, because males are simply not part of the New Feminist World Order.
