“Run the World (Girls)”? Not So Much

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

I want to like Beyonce’s “Run the World (Girls),” but I don’t (and girls don’t … run the world, that is).  Here’s one commentator’s response to the slogan — not the song:

The video’s creator explains (here):

This video is not about Beyonce. It’s not even really about this song. My point is NOT that she shouldn’t have made this song because of X, Y, and Z.

My point IS: Oh, Look! X, Y, and Z exist and this song is a great tie-in to a discussion of feminism.

Worth a watch.  H/T @DeliaChristina
