Of course Emma Wats*n is another white feminist who feels the need to say that Beyonce isn’t a feminist.
Since white feminists are coming in the notes and saying that I am needlessly pointing out an issue that doesn’t deserve merit the issue and am too busy targeting white people, I will respond here. The issue is that Wats*n doesn’t explicitly say that Beyonce isn’t a feminist but she says that in her music videos for her visual album she says that
on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her
which is illustrating that Beyonce, a woman who has at least ten years on her with years of experience in the public eye from a young age, has apparently no control over her image. Frankly that is very insulting to Beyonce since Wats*n is saying that Beyonce isn’t in control of her image when really if there’s one thing central to her, it’s how much she is in complete control of her image and presentation because she’s that savvy and smart. It reeks of ‘well you tried but you’re still not good enough’ which Tavi immediately responded to by saying that in fact “I felt that she was in control of it” after doing meticulous research.
