Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."  

Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”

On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.” 

What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults. 

If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.

Hey everyone. Unfortunately I have an emotionally abusive mother who dosent accept that im pansexual and insista I have lied to her my whole life. I have to get out of this house.

Okay, this mentality is hugely fucking problematic. I put my stuff on the internet to share with people who like the stuff I like, in a space that I’m in control of. People taking it and putting it elsewhere against my wishes is not “just how the internet works”, it’s a disrespectful practice perpetuated by assholes who just want to take stuff that’s not theirs and use it to get notes or earn money or what the fuck ever. If people really liked my work and had respect for me as an artist and A PERSON they would allow me to control where my own work is displayed, and stop assuming just because you CAN download it and put it somewhere else, means you SHOULD. I don’t even understand how people could NOT understand the artists’ desire to maintain control of their work?? I’M the one who spent hours making it, just because I let people see it and have access to a digital copy doesn’t mean I suddenly wave all rights to it or should not give a shit what people do with it. If there were a way to share without allowing people to save it, believe me, I would do that.
Also, it doesn’t matter how respectfully the work is taken. Consider a scenario here: the image is taken once, and put on instagram with credit. Then three other people see it from instagram. One puts it on pinterest with the tumblr source. The second puts it on weheartit with credit to the instagram, because hey, that links back to the source, that’s good enough, right? The third person forgets to link back at all, oh well. More people take it from all of those places, crediting any of those places in between. All of the different sources of this image mess with search engine algorithms and override the actual image source, making it harder to find. Someone from etsy looking for copyright free images to use on products finds one of these unsourced images and takes it and makes a bunch of money off it, hurting the artist financially and wasting their time as they struggle to get the products removed. Some idiot who wants to print out a bunch of johnlock porn to shock the actors on a talk show finds some reposted nsfw easily on google and suddenly an artist who just wanted to share their art with a few like-minded people is being mocked in front of millions of viewers. Eventually, the image comes full circle and is reposted on Tumblr with no credit, when it could have easily just been reblogged from the artist.
This is ignoring all of the people who lie about the source and claim they made it, which DOES HAPPEN despite your claim that it does not. People claim ownership, people trace, people copy the style, people do all kinds of things when they think they’ll get away with it.
This fucking happens. To almost all of the images I post. Multiple times. A day.
How hard is it for people to just decide NOT TO BE AN ASSHOLE AND STEAL IT? Why do people always come back to the artist with this bullshit “well if you didn’t want it stolen why did you put it up??” victim blaming garbage? How does that make any sense except to people who want an excuse to steal??
I’m going to publish this in case other people had this question burning on their mind and because I’m honestly so incensed that people even still ask this question after pretty much every internet artist has had to explain it a dozen times. However I hid their name because even though I’m really pissed off by messages worded this way I have nothing against them personally and don’t want to get them flooded with hate mail or whatever. I’d like to think you are honestly asking, but considering your message is worded like the millions of other messages artists get constantly questioning their rights to control how people share their work, with the standard assumption of my ignorance when it comes to “how things work” and undertone of judgement for thinking I would ever dare try to change “how things work”, forgive me if I’m skeptical.
People who ask questions like this, YOU just don’t want to accept that you have done something the artist dislikes, so you throw the blame back on the artist. YOU don’t want to change the comfortable little way you’re spending your time online taking others’ works, so you try to convince the artist it’s their fault and it won’t change. This is YOUR problem. Ask yourself if you really want artists to stop sharing their work with you and then decide whether that’s a viable solution to this issue.

And yet we share other peoples work on our facebook walls, youtube and tumblr’s daily (even artist’s who get their artwork shared and then blow it out of proportion)….its called TV show gifs, screenshots, edited screenshots, music, movie stills, links to movies etc etc. So I guess with that logic we shouldn’t share those either? Those should just remain where we found them? Hmm maybe I understand why companies are so pissed that people make fan videos and post entire movie and episodes online now (I dont really, because credit is being given etc, but you get my point). Same. Shit. Different. Pile.I’m sorry, I’m an artist, so I can respect this person’s frustration, but I’m sorry, I can’t tolerate people who think they can control the internet and who are just as hypocritical as the people who message them saying not to post it on the internet.In ways, the artist is right, there is a fine line with SHARING artwork. We need to SOURCE the original content and CREDIT the artist, but hell if credit is being given, you should seriously shut up and stop complaining and be like this asker said, thankful that people are 1) crediting you, cause its not done often, so take that as a huge step forward into recognizing creative rights and 2) SHARING YOU WORK WITH THE WORLD. I mean isn’t that the POINT of why you posted it? So what difference does it make (if its being done right) that someone decided this is AWESOME enough to share on another blog or website CREDITS AND SOURCES you and you get even more people seeing your work that you posted for the WORLD to see in the first place? THIS is why this question is ALWAYS asked and always brought up because artists are becoming too PICKY with their works. I’m sorry, I’ve said it a thousand times, I’ll say it again. If you post it online, thats the end of it. Its free dips to share, reblog, and even yes sadly steal (in which then you can peruse legal action and have the right to complain all you want) but SHARING a piece that is CREDITED and SOURCED is NOT stealing, get that through your head. We need to focus on the bigger issue and thats people STEALING art, making fake accounts and claiming it as their own. THAT is a bigger issue than “Not being able to control whether people use right click or not”.I can understand its frustrating when you dont know where your art is being posted, but dear god, its the internet, its not a private art gallery you rented on a side street. If you want complete CONTROL of where you art goes, then do that -___- Post it on the internet, then you’re a open book my dear. I know this as an artist. If I have something I don’t want shared, I simply don’t post it. I’ve threatened and almost sued many people for stealing my artwork in the past, so I know how the legal system works when it comes to our rights as artists. Let me tell you right now, if you were to go after any of these people who have sourced and credited you, you’d be laughed at because sorry darling, they didn’t steal it, they shared it and further more, they linked it back to you (even if there is no vital link and its just your username, name, blog name etc or even, yes this is true because I tried to fight it once, “Credit goes to the original artist. I do not own this photo/video/drawing etc”.)The internet cannot be controlled and it sadly never will be. Thats why this question keeps being asked because artists are trying to say they want a “Controlled” space, well you’re not going to find it here and all while doing the SAME THING on their tumblrs, facebook, instagrams, and whatever, that they’re trying to get other people to not do when it comes to their art that they shared on a public domain. 

And here we have an example of THE PROBLEM.

You’ll never be able to control the entire world around you, so if you don’t want your art to be shared without your knowledge, don’t share it in the first place.

Another example.

Did you just seriously fucking tag this as victim blaming? Idk man both of you have valid points. I really get that reaper wants to have his/her own blog with only his/her art on it and nowhere else. But I also get that you can not control the internet. It doesn’t matter how or where you post it, there’s always going to be someone who’s new to your blog and doesn’t know this about your blog. And you just saying “another example” to this isn’t going to help you. I’ve seen posts before from you where you talk about people “stealing” your artwork, and I think that helps a lot, but you do have to use arguments. Succes with fighting the posting everywhere!

I made my entire point in the previous posts and any argument with any of these would be redundant. You are the problem as you are trying to lay the blame on the artists for being upset over their loss of control. You are the problem because you are saying “that’s how it is.” You are the problem because you’ve decided you are fine with a culture of theft (“you can’t control the internet” after all) and are content to let people continue stealing artwork while criticizing the artists and anyone else who complains about it. I am rephrasing points from the OP. This is redundant.
You are an example of the problem.
Also there is a paragraph on the front page of my blog that asks people not to repost my artwork. It’s not just occasional posts.
I don’t even know why I’m responding to this because you put stealing in quotations so that’s pretty much a big red flag we’re not going to see eye to eye on this.
I regret using the phrase “victim blaming”, because while I still think that’s pretty much the definition of this situation, I didn’t intend to compare art theft to more serious problems. I acknowledge internet art theft isn’t on the same level of problematic as rape or assault and I apologize to anyone who was hurt by my use of the phrase.

Woah. I’m sorry to tell you all, but: people can be assholes and life is unfair. People don’t tell you that because the truth is painful. And sadly, there’s not much we can do about it. All you can do is accept it and move on. Sorry love, but that’s life.

No.

Its your fucking art. You can make the rules. You aren’t “controlling the internet” you just want your things to stay in one place. Of people truely want to share they can link to the page and not have the actual pic with a source. Is one click really that hard to do just to look at fucking fantastic art??
