A cantora Ariana Grande publicou na tarde deste domingo (7) uma carta no Instagram e no Twitter em que ressalta a importância do empoderamento feminino. Ela começa o texto afirmando que ser empoderada não é o mesmo que ser uma “cadela” e disse estar cansada de viver em um mundo onde as mulheres são referidas como “a ex do Sean”, como o passado, presente ou futuro de um homem PROPRIEDADE / POSSE. “Eu não. pertenço. a ninguém. só a mim mesma. e nem a você.” assinala.

A cantora lembra um artigo publicado por Gloria Steinem em 1969, “Depois do Black Power, a Libertação das Mulheres” e constata pouco avanço desde então. “Se uma mulher tem um monte de sexo (ou qualquer sexo) … ela é uma “vagabunda”. Se um homem tem sexo … ele é o maioral, o chefão, um rei”, entre outros exemplos para mostrar o duplo padrão e a misoginia sempre presentes nas relações.

Ariana aproveitou para negar mais uma vez qualquer tipo de envolvimento afetivo com Niall Horan, com quem tem saído frequentemente. “Se uma mulher é vista com um amigo que tenha um pênis, há uma suposição imediata de romance ou sexo e ela é rotulada!”.

“Eu não posso esperar para viver em um mundo onde as pessoas não tenham valor por estarem namorando / casadas / tendo relações sexuais com (ou não) / visto com … mas por seu valor como um indivíduo”, e completa, “digo isso depois de oito anos sentindo que sempre tinha que ter um boy ao meu lado; depois de alguns meses por conta própria vejo que nunca me senti tão satisfeita”.

Para terminar, ela cita uma frase de Gloria Steinem: “Qualquer mulher que escolha se comportar como um ser humano completo deve ser advertida de que os exércitos do status quo vão tratá-la como uma espécie de piada suja… Ela vai precisar de nossa sororidade”.

being empowered is not the same as being a bitch…
having something to say… is not the same as having a bad atitude…
what I meant when I said what I said about not being Sean’s ex is that I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present or future PROPERTY /POSSESSION. I… do not. belong. to anyone. but myself. and neither do you.
I have clearly not been having the boy questions in my interviews lately because I have come to the realization that I have SO. MUCH. MORE. to talk about. I’m currently making the best music I’ve ever known, working my ass off every single day, performing / creating for my babes and getting the chance to meet and hug my babes all over the world every day.
I come from a long bloodline of female activists, my aunt Judy was the first italian american female president of the national press club in Washington DC. I think she would have been proud of me for speaking up about something that has been bothering me personally for so long.
Gloria Steinem published an article in 1969 titled “After Black power, Women’s Liberation” …. and 46 years later… we’re still not quite there yet!
If a women has a lot of sex (or any sex for that matter)… she’s a “slut”.
If a man has sex… HE’S. A. STUD. a BOSSSSSS. a KING.
If a woman even TALKS about sex openly… she is shamed!
But if a man talks or RAPS freely about all the women (or more commonly used “bitches”/””hoes”… how lovely) he’s had… he is regaled.
If a woman is seen with a friend with a penis, there is an immediate assumption of romance or sex and she is labeled!
If a man is seen with a woman… his status is elevated / celebrated. “AWW SHIIIT HE SMASH!”.
I know y’all already know this but the double standard and misogyny are stil ever present.
I can’t wait to live in a world where people are not value by who they’re dating / married to / attached to, having sex with (or not) / seen with… but by their value as an individual.
I want the people reading this to know that they are MORE THAN enough on their own.
I want the media to please help me with this!!!!! Please support each other.
I’m saying this after literaly 8 years of feeling like I constantly had to have a boy in my side. After being on my own now for a few months, I am realizing that that’s just not the case… I have never felt more present, grounded, and satisfied. I’ve never laughed harder or had more fun or enjoyed my life more.
one more thought… my honeymoon diaries are my way of sharing asolutely as much as I can with my fans. thait is something I have done since day one and never plan on changing. it is a safe environment for me to be myself and share funny, special, personal things with my fans to laugh about sily things i’ve done / things i’m going though, I don’t plan on monitoring or changing that because there are more eyes on me now than there were before. I love y’all with all my heart… you’ve accepted and celebrated me not only as an artist but as a person since day one and and nothing wil change that or change me.
“any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo wil treat her as something of a dirty joke… She will need her sisterhood.” – Gloria Steinem
