Demi Lovato deconstructs the patriarchal society in one sentence.
#DOES THIS GUY #KNOW WHO THE FUCK #HE IS TALKING #TOO
In case you were wondering
You guys need to see the video because Simon does the same shit to her too and she shuts them both down, I LOVE her for that
the entire time NONE of the women are having any of his shit.
It must have been incredibly hard for the three female judges to give him a yes because yeah he was talented but I would’ve punched him right in his smug face.
Ok sorry but um…why is “woman” seen as a degrading term
it’s not….that kinda says a lot…
i mean people say “hey man” all the time, what’s the difference??
Just to be clear I am not really offended by this either but I think I understand why it would be considered offensive.
In this case I think it’s because of how this guy came across. he’s obviously a ladies man and when he called demi ‘woman’ it sort of came across like he was seeing her as another plaything that would fall at his feet and praise him because he looooooves the ladies(he does not treat Simon or talk to the males in the audience in the same way). I guess it was particularly disrespectful because he demanded it (TELL ME WOMAN…that you loved me because all girls fall for my charm) and well, she’s a judge. so I guess she(and others) expected him to refer to her with more respect.
so I think it’s not the word ‘woman’ so much that it came across as him seeing her(and expecting her to be) one of his groupies rather than a professional judge with the music experience to properly critique him because she’s a woman(other ex:
SILENCE WOMAN…because your opinion is unimportant
GET BACK TO THE KITCHEN WOMAN…because that’s where you belong)
You are right in that ‘woman’ is not an offensive term. But some women do get offended when they are reduced to their gender and are expected to respond or act a certain way not because they are ‘Demi’ or ‘Sandy’ or whatever, but because they are ‘woman’.
Did that make sense? It’s like 1AM here haha.
EDIT: And again I’m not offended. But I think that might be why what that guy did could be (understandably) considered offensive.
Ahh that’s true, sometimes it’s the WAY you say it, and I didn’t get that kind of context from a gif , context that would’ve made more sense If I watch the actual clip and he’s like “TELL ME WOMAN >:)”
I wanna find that now lol
