I think that the 8-layers of toxic face spackle troweled onto her face every day is starting to leach harmful chemicals into her brain, because Katy Perry is talking about feminism once again. And like always, she sounds like that dumb 14-year-old girl from your geography class who was convinced that playing softball in gym class and listening to Ani DiFranco would turn her into a lesbian.
As you may recall, Katy Perry has spoken about feminism in the past, specifically that she is NOT a feminist. But during an interview with Australian talk show I Wake Up With Today (where she does a dead-on Miss Colleen impression) Katy confirms that she IS a feminist, if your definition of feminism comes from the description of a perfume from a 1970s Avon catalogue:
“A feminist? Uh, yeah, actually. I used to not really understand what that word meant, and now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men. I am a strong woman, and hear me roar!”
You lie, Katy Perry! You clearly still don’t understand what that word means. Do I need to pull out the dictionary? Because I think we have to. The definition of feminism isn’t that you love yourself and also love men, dum-dum; it’s the belief that women should be completely equal to men. The end, case closed, put the blanket over the birdcage, take off your women’s studies caftan.
I know I’m expecting a lot from someone who believes their giant tits are the result of writing mouth letters to god, but haven’t we reached the expiry date on being embarrassed to call yourself a feminist? Besides that one guy you knew from high school who keeps liking MRA shit on Facebook, does anyone still hear the word “Feminism” and think of a giant, man-hating braless scissor-pile? Shit, it’s 2014; keep up, Katy.
