“Penises and ejaculate and prostate glands occur in nature, but the notion that these anatomical traits comprise a sex—a discrete class, separate and distinct, metaphysically divisible from some other sex, the “other sex” —is simply that: a notion, an idea. The penises exist; the male sex does not. The male sex is socially constructed. It is a political entity that flourishes only through acts of force and sexual terrorism. Apart from the global inferiorization and subordination of those who are defined as “nonmale,” the idea of personal membership in the male sex class would have no recognizable meaning. It would make no sense. No one could be a member of it and no one would think they should be a member of it. There would be no male sex to belong to. That doesn’t mean there wouldn’t still be penises and ejaculate and prostate glands and such. It simply means that the center of our selfhood would not be required to reside inside an utterly fictitious category—a category that only seems real to the extent that those outside it are put down.” — John Stoltenberg | Refusing to Be a Man (1989)

“And while Valenti rightly gave a nod to Beyoncé’s tireless work in backing up her feminist mantle, the celebration of Swift’s not entirely eloquent feminist statement is illustrative of the amount of work that feminists of colour have to do, in many cases, in order to be seen to be “doing feminism” right; white, middle-class women like Swift will be celebrated just for saying “Yes, I’m feminist”, even though their art may suggest otherwise. Indeed, it’s difficult to reconcile Swift’s feminism with her latest video, Shake It Off, in which black women’s bodies are objectified and parodied. Music critic Jessica Hopper wrote, of Swift’s crawling through a ‘tunnel’ of twerking dancers, “That smirk highlights the chasm between the guileless white pop star playing dress-up with her Cuban link chains and the capable brown ass shaking above her. It’s a really cheap move that plays on the historic, racist mythology about black women’s sexuality in order to underscore her own.”” — Pop music is having a feminist awakening (again)
