All these hateful posts about Miley Cyrus hosting the VMAs are HIIILLLAAAAARRRRIIIIOOOUSSSSS. Here’s why:
1. “She’s such a bad role model for small children! She should NOT be hosting!”
……Why is your five year old watching MTV? Reevaluate your parenting, sweetheart.
2. “She’s just… gross. All she does is party and get messed up and look stupid.”
……and donate time and money to youth homelessness, the LGBT community, PETA, and plenty of other amazing organizations… all while standing alongside the feminist #FreeTheNipple campaign.
3. “She was SO much better as Hannah Montana! What happened to her?!”
……She grew up. She doesn’t need to put on a different mask (or wig, for that matter) to impress anyone. After all, her records are STILL selling, aren’t they?
4. “She dresses like a slut and she’s just trashy.”
……which brings us to the whole “feminism” thing. The way she dresses in no way represents her sex life. If anything, you should be thankful that young women like her DO exist. It shows “young girls” that successful people are just like us and it’s cool to stand up for what you believe in.
In the wise words of Miley herself, “[My dad would] rather me have my tits out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a bitch.”
