shoe fit

  • you: ugh, "don't buy me stuff i make my own money" feminism is the most boring
  • me, an intellectual: financial independence and rejection of men's favors like drinks at the bar can be powerful for any woman who has been trapped in an abusive relationship. abusers frequently strive to convince their victims that they cannot survive and support themselves without the sponsorship of their abuser. kesha's use of this theme in her recent release, "woman", is deliberately making the point that her career success is not dependant on her continuing to work with her rapist, and that her music will succeed on its own merit. not personally finding this brand of feminism relevant to your life does not entitle you to belittle her own joy and celebration of freedom
