Is Society Obsessed with Seeing Powerful Women Fall?

Do we hate women that are rich?

Do we hate women that are iconic?

Do we hate women who are confident in being sexy in their own skin?

Do we hate women who are universally identified as being a symbol of beauty?

Do we hate women who do something that is different than us?

Do we hate women who stand up for equality?

These are all questions I want you to deeply think about.  In today’s society everyone is getting rather obsessed with pulling down and clowning any woman that climbs up the latter to success in her own way.  Could it be that women in power are a threat in someway to those who either can’t be them or don’t understand them?  What can we do as a society at large to embrace and make room for powerful women of different cultures/races to lead without being scolded or scrutinized for every single move that they make? I mean since when was anyone perfect? Weren’t we all put on this Earth to be given a chance to be the best version of ourselves?

It seems to be a theme, although we are in the year 2018, to constantly bash women who do what they want to do with their lives.  For example, Mrs. Kimberly Noel Kardashian-West is ridiculed and investigated on her motives till this day for everything she does.  We don’t need to dig into her past, because who’s past doesn’t have a few skeletons and rotten memories that we hope never surface?  The point is she is constantly remembered for what she did wrong and never celebrated for what she has done or accomplished      (Kim’s Accomplishments). When was the last time someone said, “Hey, you go girl…no one is perfect but you keep pushing higher and stay positive” –We’d like to say no one really.  Such a sad but true reality. 

For instance, another example is Ms. Nicki Minaj being pulled down and gossiped about after her so called “hate” towards Mrs. Cardi B and her career.  Why are we as a society so fixated on the “He said- She said” and not focusing on how these two powerful female rappers are capable of role-modeling female empowerment and collaboration?  It’s as though people get a HIGH off of just seeing these two powerful iconic artist attack one another. Are we programmed as humans to seek gossip and hate? Clearly in 2018, the answer is YES.  

Although this vicious cycle is getting crazier by the moment, it is not something new that anyone should be shocked about. Remember the iconic pop-star Ms.Britney Spears? The Miss.American Dream? The girl next door? You know.. the one that everybody looked up to, wanted to dress, sing, dance, and be like? Yeah, lets talk about that. Britney was an artist with numerous awards, top chart singles, albums, and music videos (lets not forget she was on almost every Magazine cover), oh.. and I think she was dating that popular N’sync guy? The second her personal life got displayed on social media, she was not able to keep up with her image, and society broke her. Yeah.. we said it, society broke her. Oh, and now that’s all we remember her as… “before and after meltdown” or “Britney crazy phase”. So, is this a society problem? or a personal matter? We like to say the latter, because if you recall, nobody is perfect. 

So the next time you say, “Don’t pull a Lindsey Lohan” or “Shes only famous from a tape,” ask yourself these questions:

Do we hate women that are rich?

Do we hate women that are iconic?

Do we hate women who are confident in being sexy in their own skin?

Do we hate women who are universally identified as being a symbol of beauty?

Do we hate women who do something that is different than us?

Do we hate women who stand up for equality?

 

And if the answer is YES, here is what we suggest:

  1. Reflect on a time when you messed up in your life and wish that it wasn’t broadcasted in public.
  2. Ask yourself how would you want your family and friends to react?
  3. Would it be fair for people to label you and ONLY see you for your flaws?–No you say? Ya that is what we thought.

 

We rest our case.
