All being a Feminist means is that us women want to be treated as a man would treat another male (as a complete human being), not as a sexual toy, an automatic second class citizen solely due to our gender, not as an inferior human being, etc). Women do NOT dominate and control either the entertainment OR music industry, so the ending result is what MEN ultimately decide on releasing as music videos to the masses. I find it quite coincidental that, in this day and age, where us women have more “choices,” and “freedom” (that we’ve had to DEMAND by FIGHTING for; men are automatically given said freedoms & choices by birth right), than ever before, music videos that both glamorize & promote prostitution (women selling their bodies for quick money; not men) such as “WAP” are being marketed. How can I be “hurting women” when I am voicing my opinion (due to my past real life experiences) of personalIy knowing & befriending several women in the sex industry, and talking about all of their negative experiences, feelings, substance abuse, suicidal ideations, guilt, and misery that was the result of their lifestyle as a prostitute)? If women choose to be a prostitute, that’s absolutely their choice, but I in my heart & soul think it’s wrong to “glamorize” an industry of paid r*pe to naive & impressionable young women. And, I am ABSOLUTELY NOT “conservative” in my views & opinions on sex, by the way. I was born bisexual, and have lived a highly unconventional lifestyle, which includes exploring basically ALL aspects of sex (S&M, threesomes with 2 men, 2 women, “role-reversal” where I use a strap on penis for both men & women’s pleasure, etc..I think you get the idea & I’m not going to be any more graphic in my wild & fun experiences). Ask any prostitute (independent, one who works at a brothel, one who unfortunately & sadly is controlled by a pimp) if she is genuinely happy with her lifestyle, and then get back to me. Thank you.I find it fascinating the way you try to straddle a position between extreme Lesbian (because Men are absent from your social metaphysics) 3rd/4th wave Feminism (including obviously quite pro-LGBT views and liberal sensitivities) with what seems to be conservative views about sexuality. You are trying to hold incompatible views, this is called cognitive dissonance.
What you don't seem to get is that Liberalism (and Feminism in this area) doesn't leave room for human dignity, as human dignity is oppressive and stands in the way of the liberation of the exclusively feminine 'true self'. The degrading of womanhood comes with 'liberating' women from traditional gender roles (which dignify women and give them a purpose, meaning, value and dignity). This is the doing of Feminists themselves, not Men.
It is that you are just naive and unaware to both the dialectic you are playing with yourself as a feminist and the social consequences of what you are actually doing to women (rather than what you idealize that you're doing in your head/mind). When you fuck up you blame it on men instead of yourself, which just continues and psychologically reaffirms the infinite regress.
