Why the half time performance bothered me

4 years ago

I follow hundreds of feminist activists on Twitter and was surprised that during last night's SuperBowl half-time show very few of them were as disturbed as I by Beyonce's overly sexy show.  I am a fan of Beyonce and some of this might be generational (I'm 56), but her show felt more like a Victoria's Secret runway than mid-field at the SuperBowl.  

It was great to see her all girl band and amazing, talented performers.  But did they have to wear such skimpy garments?  I'm sorry but it was a sex show that perpetuates the macho football paired with the so-called cheerleaders who are dressed in push-up bras and underwear!  

Beautiful Beyonce didn't need to flaunt herself like a cheap piece of goods.  Dancing was great, shaking practically bare booties was not.

Tell me what you think.
