|Beyonce: "I've only been linked with one man in my entire career — my husband Jay-Z — but I'm a 'slut'?"|
She continues her commentary: "Speaking of Beyoncé’s attire, her sexy leather costume and performance really ruffled conservatives’ feathers, sending their morality meters literally into the red. Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham tweeted: 'Very family-friendly dancing S&M by Beyoncé. What every girl shd aspire to. #waronwomen.' Granted before I saw Ingraham’s tweet, I tweeted 'Beyoncé channeling little S&M. Just saying not hating. #SuperBowl'. But Ingraham’s tweet was loaded with ridiculousness because performances like Beyoncé’s are just that performances. There was no war on women as Ingraham tweeted nor did Beyoncé portray a negative image of women during her Super Bowl performance. Young girls do aspire to be Beyoncé: a very successful, married, black mom, who if anything is a role model for marriage, an institution Republicans adore. Beyoncé’s hit song Single Ladies warns men the way to keep a woman is to marry her by putting 'a ring on it.'"
More commentary from Ms. Wright, about conservative reactions: "What’s Laura’s real problem with Beyoncé? I don’t remember Ingraham demonstrating the same contempt and disgust for Victoria’s Secret’s annual fashion show which is broadcast to millions, featuring women in bras, panties and teddies, far less clothing than Beyonce donned at the Super Bowl. Does Laura think former infamous Victoria’s Secret model Heidi Klum isn’t a fit role model for young girls too?"
Ms. Wright ain't done just yet: "PETA’s comment was certainly petty but not surprising. But my conservative friends comments revealed what’s wrong with the Republican brand. Republicans spend too much time on things that don’t matter, blowing them out of context like Beyoncé’s Super Bowl performance. Worn by an ice-skater, Beyoncé’s leather costume wouldn’t have raised an eyebrow from conservatives but when a powerful, sexy 'independent' black woman wears such a costume, she’s a slut."
