Young Feminists: The Rowan Blanchard/Amanda Stenberg Generation

Say you will about how this young generation is going to hell in a hand basket but I just don't believe any of it!

The kids are alright.

For some reason the hyperlink for the Rowan Blanchard story didn't take on the first go-round:

Re: Young Feminists: The Rowan Blanchard/Amanda Stenberg Generation

I don't recall any 13-year-olds in my day who even had the word 'feminism' on their radar. But beyond that, there is a subtlety and nuance to the way these kids address issues which I've never seen before.

In the 90's there were shows like 'My So-Called Life' and 'The Wonder Years' which definitely touched on a host of 'adult' issues somewhat heavy-handedly but maybe that was what was really needed at the time. Perhaps if Twitter or Instagram was around then, Claire Danes or Olivia Jane d'Abo would have been making similar statements on them and would have had the luxury of self-editing along w/ a deeper knowledge of the positive and negative consequences of broad media exposure. That certainly informs how people choose to address subject matter these days.

The medium is in the message.

It's a topic certainly worth discussing.

When your cultural identity is important to you and you see a dominant culture use it while still regarding you as a lower social caste, I would say yes, that is pretty horrifying.

In any case, here's a good article that breaks it down for you, in case you give two damns:

And for those w/out the patience or bandwidth to read an article...

It is pretty common to read about the different subsets of feminism and their struggles these days, but that wasn't the case back in the day. It was about "all" women, but many girls/women didn't understand or have awareness of women who were different from themselves.

I'd say that people imitating hip hop stars (and their hairstyles) is more of a pop culture phenomenon - fan idolatry.
