fab4runner, ditto for me. It started SO late. I watched the first half so far, have to wait for On Demand for the rest.

Yes. Me. Wearing this stuff. All of it. Okay, maybe one piece. But all of it. NOW.

Mela, ‘But to say that having body issues cancels out one’s feminism would pretty much wipe feminism off the face of the earth, so let’s just not go there.’—I agree completely, and wish I’d phrased things a bit differently… just a bit.

My issue is the front. There are celebrities who are open about the work it takes to get their bodies to look a certain way. Katy Perry, Megan Fox, Uzo Aduba—I love when celebs let the world know it takes “a team” to help them look the way they look. I think it bugs me that we never hear Bey do this. While I love the “I Woke Up Like Diss” message, I find it problematic when stuff like this happens.

And those same celebs I just named (and many others) don’t photoshop on IG! Honestly, this isn’t really about body insecurity, which is why I wish I hadn’t sent that message. I don’t take issue with the feeling of insecurity, I take issue with the action. If you’re a feminist and a public figure and you claim to be about empowering young girls and women, I think photoshopping personal pictures (as in, not pics in a magazine) is problematic.

On the one hand, I don’t want to be that person taking away feminist cards. But there ARE women who claim to be feminists, whose actions might suggest something OTHER feminists take issue with. So, I’ll say I take issue with Beyonce’s brand of feminism (which I think is complicated by her bigger brand as an icon).

tanu, thank you for commenting—more please!

I definitely hear what you’re saying. I don’t want to come off judgmental. Like I said, I dig Sharon Osbourne. It’s just that she’s saying this publicly, and I kept thinking of how others might receive it.

Iris B, ‘Also, the anchor stating that it’s a reminder for her love and passion for Ozzy – That’s the wrong thing to say.’—yup. Very scary message to send, IMO.

Mish, I cannot even bring myself to watch this. I think I’m afraid of feeling what you’re feeling too. AGHhhh.
