She beast Miley Cyrus turned heads, and dare it be said, a fair few stomachs when she delivered a raunchy, provocative, and aesthetically unpleasant performance at London’s G-A-Y nightclub.
Yet, is Cyrus empowering women with her particular fondness for playing around on stage with huge phallic-shaped inflatables or does Miley just look like a bit of a dick?
Fortunately for Miley Cyrus, feminism has changed quite a bit since the high-brow existentialism of Simone de Beauvoir and her philosophy of the ‘eternal feminine.’
Nowadays, you don’t have to dress all in black, sit in chic cafes, chain-smoke suspicious cigarettes and have intellectual debates to be a feminist
As Miley Cyrus as proven beyond a doubt, all you need is a big plastic penis and an instinctive flair for the ‘eternal vulgar,’ and everything is golden. You can leave the bra burning to the amateurs!
According to Katie Hind’s column in The Mirror newspaper, by the very act of pretending to put her mouth around an enormous plastic penis, Miley Cyrus deserves respect for empowering women of all ages.
However, ask your dear old mum about Miley Cyrus’s antics and she may beg to differ.
Katie argues the case for Miley Cyrus as a role model for young women with the argument: “Not for many years have we seen a stronger image of a self-assured, confident young woman as Miley Cyrus. Miley is showing men just what it’s like to be viewed as a plastic object.”
You could also argue that Miley Cyrus is also showing men of a certain persuasion exactly what they want with her skimpy outfits and soft porn theatrics.
According to Katie, most men have long been obsessed with blow-up dolls and Miley is just taking the power back.
Katie writes: “Miley Cyrus is asserting power. Yes, little 21-year-old, five feet tall Miley – the girl known for so many years as a timid little Disney character has grown up.”
Now, if the world is to be reduced to offering women the choice of either being a cute little Disney character with a slightly nauseating singing voice and apple pie smile, or a crude exhibitionist who like to stick their tongue out a lot and straddle a huge plastic penis for the enjoyment of the masses, then we’re all in big trouble.
Apparently though anyone who dares criticize Miley Cyrus is: “Just very jealous. Very Jealous indeed.”
Which is kind of ironic, considering Miley Cyrus’s bitter rant aimed at Liam Hemsworth ahead of her recent performance of Wrecking Ball.
Commenting on her former paramour, Cyrus snarled: “And every time you get in your car, you’re going to hear my f-king song on the f-king radio, you piece of sh-. That’s right. And then I’m gonna take all my clothes off, I’m gonna sit on a big, giant dick – sometimes two.”
Way to go Miss Cyrus! Keep empowering all those young ladies, smiley Miley.
