"I am tired of seeing Beyonce sell the idea that she is a feminist as part of her brand."

Let the church say “Amen”.

Now let me start out by saying that as a pretty progressive, liberal woman I’ve never felt the need to call myself a feminist. I’m for equality PERIOD. At the same time I don’t knock anybody else for embracing the term. I have to wonder though if pop stars like Beyonce are just using feminism as a buzzword to sell records without actually doing anything of note. We barley hear anything from her lips that isn’t carefully crafted. Beyonce is a talented woman no doubt, but is Beyonce the best feminism can do? What has she done on the ground that doesn’t involve pelvic thrusting?

Depending on where you’re born, cooking dinner, having sex and going to the bathroom are either three of life’s many pleasures - or three of the riskiest things you can do.

I really hate getting my hair brushed, but there is absolutely nothing I can do about it so I will sit here and make faces until it’s over because crying won’t make it stop.

Crowded in living rooms across America sit women of great talent, ambition, maturity and independence. They are real adults with careers and depth of experience, yet we are determined to infantilize all of them as well as the soon-to-be mother. Instead of reflecting on the gravity of this new stage of life, we put candy in diapers, wear balloons under our shirts, and make collages featuring celebrity babies.

Also, should point out that this letter is typewritten.

“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street. A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”
