what's your opinion on yoko?

I think yoko is an awesome artist who rarely receives the credit she deserves. The yoko hate that cycles itself through the fandom is so offensive and one dimensional. Ive seen so many people bash yoko for such random things, ive even seen extremely racists posts about her, honestly people are so disgusting.

I feel like people never actually take the time to learn about yoko before criticizing her. Yoko was well established artist and musician before her partnership with john. She was a classically trained pianist and pioneer in conceptional art. Despite the backlash she received for her groundbreaking feminist work she continued to create new art and share her messages.

Ono’s fundamental contribution to the formation of Conceptual Art was involving the audience into the completion of the work. It is designed so that anyone can make it - a crucial dimension of its meaning.Ono was one of the strongest feminist voices to emerge from the art world in the 60s. Her Cut Piece (1964), a first for feminist art performance, invited audience members to take turns cutting off her clothes using a pair of scissors. It also brought the audience into close contact with the artist, which was a new concept and crossed traditional boundaries. (x)

While people will criticize her relationship with john, she was an incredible support source for him. She encouraged his individuality, and help him pursue his career as a solo artist. She introduced john to feminism and peace activism and helped inspired some of his greatest works such as imagine.

Yoko suffered from many tragedies in her life from having her daughter stolen her to witnessing her husbands assassination, and being a constant target for negative media. Despite all this she was always very charitable, and spoke on issues that are important to her.

As Lennon’s widow, Ono works to preserve his legacy. She funded Strawberry Fields in New York City, the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland, and the John Lennon Museum in Saitama, Japan. She has made significant philanthropic contributions to the arts, peace, Philippine and Japan disaster relief, and other causes. In 2012 Yoko Ono received the Dr. Rainer Hildebrandt Human Rights Award endowed by Alexandra Hildebrandt. The award is given annually in recognition of extraordinary, non-violent commitment to human rights. Ono continues her social activism, inaugurating a biennial $50,000 LennonOno Grant for Peace in 2002 and co-founding the group Artists Against Fracking in 2012. (x)

To watch people throw around petty opinions about how she is such an awful person is extremely unfair. Honestly i feel like yoko hate stems from all the negative press published about her when the media wanted to blame her for the beatles’ break up. Im not saying yoko is perfect, im very aware of that and the problematic things she has done. Just like im aware of all the problematic things the beatles have done. So honestly it doesnt seem fair to attack her while acting like the beatles are innocent angels lmao.

Anyway i think yoko is pretty dope and i wish more people gave her the respect she deserves.
