Our thanks to Nigel for this BBC piece. He writes:
A wet bank holiday weekend. So a bit longer to peruse the online papers. Avoiding the state of BoJo’s decor. Briefly noting the “diversity” card unravelling for BAFTA as a hero goes to zero (in the back of my mind is the fact that the majority of black men lynched in “the south” were accused of rapes or sexual assaults). I find another “survey” where yet again women dating want “chivalry”. On an excursion to the BBC site attempt to find anything about what is happening in Ukraine (now WW3 appears to be off ). I find a not unexpected story of sexual carrying on in show biz. However there is something quite epically hypocritical and self-serving in Billie Eilish’s story, but so illustrative of having your cake and eating it.
So she admits she might “turn on” some of her audience, demands the right to look like a slut or “hoe”, asserts her delight in showing skin and in a simply hilariously display of “sex sells” is pictured in Vogue in her underwear and pouting like a burlesque dancer. All in pursuit of sales and fame.
Part of me wondered if the “journalist” at the BBC was being satirical, the piece is so riven with hypocrisy. Knowing that this is sexually exciting, even declaring men “weak” for being so allured (while using it to sell) yet demanding “respect”. It would be hilarious if it were not modern feminism’s stock-in-trade. One can imagine the very same images Billie sells, if found in a man’s locker at work, would be “proof” of misogyny or harassment.
