For the white folks trying to figure out why this isn’t okay, let’s clarify.
Miley, a white female entertainer, is being held up as powerful for utilizing her sexuality in her work. Attempts to speak ill of her are met with loud criticism and accusations of “slut shaming” her. She is being lauded as an “icon” without contributing meaningfully to the betterment of women and in spite of her insults to transwomen. She’s also being appropriative and racist as fuck, throwing women of color under the proverbial bus and mocks them as being sexual objects for her own advancement and publicity. Miley also comes from a show biz family, and thus has astounding privilege based on growing up with wealth.
Nikki Minaj, a female entertainer of color, is being mocked for showing cleavage in an outfit. That’s it. A low-cut shirt, with a jacket style most associated with business wear. This is in spite of Nikki writing her own songs, being an outspoken advocate for the education of women and girls, her repeated and clear respect for non-binary genders and transwomen/transmen, and her continued championing of “women who come from nothing.”
Can you see the problem?
A group of about six preteen white girls came into my Starbucks today and the other staff members let out this collective sign and my trainer was like “get ready to make frappucchinos!” He also wrote “white girls = cake pops” on one of the pastry bags. My job is great.
