It’s Not Up to You to Say What Is… and Isn’t… Empowering
A former videographer in the burlesque world got a little bit of a pushback on Facebook when he tried to say that burlesque can’t be feminist and empowering because women are taking off their clothes and men look at them. Oh, and he’s protecting his six-year-old daughter.
I’m not posting the link to his page because he doesn’t need any more attention.
But here are my main points in rebuttal:
- No one has any right to tell anyone else what that individual finds empowering … or not.
- When you say, “I like you but I can’t condone what you do” you ARE attempting to silence or shame that person.

But at least one artist found a way to respond.
