Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.”
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults.
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.

looking in the mirror after the anaconda video
Five Nights At Freddies played by the most fearless man
I may have favorited this video so fast that I broke my mouse, just saying.
This band. THIS BAND. They have so many fantastic things going for them: a relatively-melodic sound, falsetto vocals, concept albums, instrumental releases of their albums, a really obvious devotion to the integrity of their work. I’ve listened to Altered State religiously (like, at least once a week) since I bought it six months ago, and it is still so, so beautiful. Especially Of Matter. I don’t even know how many times I’ve listened to Resist (about 10:38), but it still chokes me up, every single time.
(I kind of love that Ashe O’Hara makes sort of doofy faces when he’s singing. Everyone in this band seems so human and normal and…not hyper-obsessed with radiating a metal vibe. They obviously enjoy what they do and have fun with it. It’s nice. I also love how so many comments on Altered State-related videos, especially the one for the instrumental recording dear god, be like, “Omg this vocalist is so gay.” THE IRONY.)
