Amber Rose popped down to Trinidad and Tobago this week to celebrate the islands' annual Carnival. But she did more than just party while there -- she also took time out of her busy schedule to dismantle the patriarchy. #DontPanic
"I'm so sick of the double standards of society," Amber wrote in a text message to a friend, makeup artist Priscilla Ono, which she later screengrabbed and posted on Instagram Wednesday (Feb. 18). "I'm sick of men being praised for being sexual beings but us [women] being downed for it."
It looks like she might be referring to her recent exchange with Khloé Kardashian on Twitter, which stemmed from comments Amber made during a radio interview about Kylie Jenner and Tyga's rumored relationship. At one point, Khloé brought up the fact that Amber worked as a stripper when she was 15 in an apparent effort to shame her, but I guess Khloé didn't realize that the former Ford model has been totally open about her past for years -- or that channeling Outraged Townswoman #2 from The Scarlet Letter is not a good look.
Back to the text convo, Amber expanded on her feminist critique to include other ways in which sexism rears its ugly head: "Or even the fact that Benji gets criticized for being a boy in heels I'm the only one that encourages him to be him!"
She's talking about Benji Carlisle, her friend and personal assistant, who looked equally flawless in his cyan-feathered costume.
To recap: It's f--ked up that women are criticized for owning their sexuality when men generally are not, and everyone should be able to where whatever they want regardless of gender identity. "#MuvaGivesFacts," indeed. Good night.
