you know I really don’t have a problem w the new SM girl group as a SONE. Like, if this were just any other comeback, I’d be excited and ready to see what direction SM is moving in like I was with EXO.
But I got a shitty ass comeback for my group. So SM gives me shit, then turns around and goes “well here’s a new girl group, maybe you’ll like them better.” fuck. no. if you can’t even handle a decent comeback for a well-established girl group, then I don’t want your other group.
this whole “SMTown family” business model y’all are working on would probably fare a lot better if you took care of everyone on the team. happy fandoms are ready to welcome new ones into the fold. but what do I know.
"Here are women who sing about sex. Sexuality. Contemporary womanhood. Wholeness. Arrival. […] The record dismantles the idea that marriage, commitment, or monogamy ruins one’s sex life. It challenges the notion that a woman’s life should be lead in complete service to her child. This album is widely successful because it makes women feel good about themselves. I can see how that might be confusing for some […] Detractors decried the album’s explicit content in typical "Won’t someone think of the children?" form, seemingly forgetting that the singer is 32 and under no obligation to parent any child but her own. BEYONCÉ introduces Knowles as a sexual being, not a being sexualized by industry. She communicates her proclivities in her own certain terms. And yes, that may sometimes involve a duration on her knees. No, you may not watch." - From Janet To Beyoncé: Why It Matters When Black Women Sing About Sexuality
