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 slut-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.

You know those badges that people used to put on their blogs that were like a Gryffindor or Slytherin or gay/trans/asexual pride stuff? This is plea for anyone in the Herpblr community that knows coding and can make buttons like that to make some.

Examples:

HSV+

HSV-1

HSV-2

Herpblr

GHSV-1

GHSV-2

OHSV-1

OHSV-2

and additionally other STD/STIs. I see this “badge of honor” stuff go around. Why not make it happen? I only wish I could do it.
