Katy Perry, Feminism, and Condescension

Interesting post by Jonathan Fitzgerald on Katy Perry refusing to embrace the label “feminist” and getting skewered for it.

For many of my fellow feminists, when they feel their feminism is threatened, vitriolic diatribes are the go-to response. There’s no benefit of the doubt afforded to their perceived enemies — it’s kill or be killed. But this tone doesn’t square with younger feminists and would-be feminists. In fact, it turns them off and ultimately causes them to publicly disassociate with the movement.
