Holy shit.

Nyheten om att Queen Bey släppte nytt album utan förvarning idag slog ner som en bomb. Ingen teaser, inget pressmeddelande, knappt några läckor ens. Bara sådär dök det upp på iTunes, BAM. Och nu upptäckte jag, via Rummets sida på Facebook, låten ”***Flawless”…

Där Beyoncé, genom att sampla Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie pratandes om feminism, patriarkat och könsroller, en gång för alla sätter punkt för alla frågor om huruvida hon är feminist eller inte.

“We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller

We say to girls – you can have ambition, but not too much

You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man

Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage

I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important

A marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support

But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?

We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or for accomplishments,

Which I think can be a good thing

But for the attention of men

We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are

Feminist: A person who believes in the economic, social and political equality of the sexes.”

Ooooh yes sir. She went there.
