Okay but Never Gonna Give You Up (better known as Rickroll) is actually a really really horrible song for many reasons, which I will better explain under the cut.
Brace yourselves, this is pretty long.
i normally really, really hate this deep/harsh of criticism looking way too far into things, but…holy cow it’s spot-on.
mallotovcocktail said: i don’t think it should matter that the term is “tainted”. people misusing the term should not redefine it. the movement gained so many rights for women in the past century that it is disrespectful to allow fallacies to edit and mollify the movement.
It matters to me if things I don’t support at all are a vocal part of the movement, if you actually read what I said you’d see that I very much addressed how the movement itself made it into something I can’t fully stand behind. Not just people misusing the term. You don’t have to call yourself a feminist because of things feminism has done in the past century or because of the good parts if it’s also doing a lot of things right now that you don’t support or don’t want to associate with. Movements and behavior within them aren’t static or not up for criticism because of a good past. Also I keep saying modern day feminism specifically. I even said that I support the concept. Just not the state of popular vocal feminism right now.
