Being a feminist doesn’t mean suddenly no longer liking problematic things. If you stopped liking everything that was sexist in media and entertainment there would be no media or entertainment left. Being a feminist, to me, is being aware of what it is you’re liking, and of its problematic aspects.
Seriously talk all your shit about “authenticity” and “real talent” but do you honestly think your cloying overdone White Guy music “legends” could deliver even a nominally passable performance in 6 inch heels while recalling hours’ worth of choreography in super form-fitting clothes while still having to focus on preserving their hair and makeup AND having to be fit enough to at least appear unfazed by the demands of the performance NO you don’t. The fact of the matter is that the spectacle aspect of American pop music is set phenomenally lower for men than women and your criticism is such a snore
