Katy Perry’s Definition of Feminism Is Offensively Stupid

By  | 

Katy Perry Yikes

Okay, who's going to take one for the team and explain to Katy Perry that feminism doesn't mean anything that she thinks it does? I have to do it, you say? Ugh, alright. Katy recently sat down with The Today Show in Australia to promote her forthcoming world tour and, when asked about her stance on feminism, proudly declared that she is indeed a feminist. Or just has a lot of confidence while also being a woman. Tomato tomato, really.

“I used to not really understand what that word meant but now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men. I am woman… Hear me roar!”

Hi, hello! It's so funny that she would mention the fact that she used to not understand the word. Because it would seem that she still doesn't know what feminism is. Maybe she isn't going around saying that she isn't a feminist at all anymore, but this ridiculous definition isn't a whole lot better. And it's sort of weird that at this point, she still can't grasp the concept. Doesn't she read her doctor-recommended daily dose of Crushable? Tons of other celebrities manage to speak intelligently about the subject, there shouldn't be anything stopping her from doing the same.

I just don't know how many ways we can slice it so that the Katys of the world get it. It's just the belief that women and men are equal and should be treated as such. Why is she making this so difficult? Why is anyone making this so difficult?? And, most importantly, does she or does she not have access that whatzywhoozit Google, because that wizard will sort out all kinds of definitions for you! Really, I strongly suggest that Katy give it a shot, money back guaranteed.
