Today I realized that Madonna is a horrible feminist role model.
...

  I used to LOVE Madonna.  Up until two hours ago, I thought she was the picture of
feminism, proving that there was nothing a woman can't do.  
  Then I was in the mall and I saw this shirt with her on it, and I was like, "Hey,
why don't they make shirts with Audrey Hepburn on them?"  (Although they do; just not
at H&M.)  Suddenly it hit me like a tidal wave- yes Madonna, you can walk around in a
cone bra at thirty and next-to-nothing at fifty if that makes you happy, and no one's
saying you can't.  But that doesn't make you a feminist.  It makes you exactly the
type of girl guys will try to exploit.  No big deal.  Plus, finding a guy thirty
years younger than you to control?  Not cool.  Just creepy.
   A true feminist role model is one who shows the world that there is nothing wrong
with being glamourous and beautiful, because underneath it all you can still be as
strong as any man.  A real woman marries whoever it may be that she loves, and even
allows him to think that he controls her if it's what makes him happy- as long
as she knows she's really got the upper hand at the end of the day.  Using a
twenty-five-year-old hotshot as a sex toy just to assert your sexual authority
doesn't make you a feminist.  It makes you stupid and weak.  Real women don't
need to assert their authority, sexual or any other kind; it's just there.

   And, I want a shirt with Audrey Hepburn on it.  Just saying.

I find that neither person in a relationship should really have the
"upper hand".
It comes off as slightly sexist that you think a real woman should
have more power.

I love how you just idealised women as men.

Feminism seems just as sexist as male supremicism to me.

Sadly, feminism started out as a fight for equality. Lately, though,
it's been taken over by "femi-nazis". They want female dominance.

Why am I so bad at being succint?  Madonna is, in my opinion, a
"femi-nazi."  There we go.  

@Kirti 
^^ Listen to her.  LOL.

I do not understand how I did that but okay...

Plus, at the end of the day, these "femi-nazis" just make themselves
even more susceptible to chauvanism.

Well, by the way you worded your diary, it sounds as if you think
women should have more power in a relationship. 
"...as long as she knows she's really got the upper hand at the end of
the day".

It may just be bad wording, but...yeah.

Yeah true... probably should have said "as long as they're equal at
the end of the day."  What I meant though, was that she has the upper
hand in her own life.  She's not controlled by her husband.
BUT, she doesn't need to go parading that through the streets.
