Nicki Minaj speaking up about the backlash she received for her “Anaconda” cover. There will forever be a difference in how black bodies are viewed even when being marketed the same way. When black women show their bodies they are hoochies and hoes. But when white women show their bodies in a similar or even more revealing manner it is ART or fine. It can be sold in stores, seen in households without a second glance. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with women showing skin but pointing out there’s no difference between the two. Intersectionality is real. Hard out here for black women. Feminist movement never claimed us.

I’m really excited about women employing DIY and feminist ethics in hip hop right now. Like punk is def still a thing in my heart but it does not hold a monopoly on DIY culture. I gotta give it up for the young women making beats at home, talking about feminism on their online radio shows and taking over stages in cat ears with their friends. Cheers to barftroop and princessnokia and trillwavefeminism for inspiring me this week.
