Ariana Grande Slams Double Standards And Misogyny In An Empowering Feminist Tweet

"Being empowered is not the same as being a b--ch."

There's your normal Sunday, and then there's your Sunday, June 7 -- a date that will live in infamy now that Ariana Grande used it to lay a Twitter smackdown on misogyny and sexist double standards. (Her words, not mine... which is awesome.)

Grande, spurred by repeated questions about her relationship with Big Sean after their breakup, used her voice to tell her fans that "being empowered is not the same as being a b--ch" and "having something to say is not the same as having a bad attitude." Her "something to say," of course, is that she's "tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present, or future property/possession," and that she's making the best music of her career right now so maybe all of her press should not be around her current status as a singleton.

Grande then went on to slam more double standards, such as the classic "if a guy does X he's a stud, if a girl does Y she's a [insert slur here]" misogyny, and she even quoted Gloria Freaking Steinem as a kicker. (Seriously Ariana, bless you for introducing a new, young audience to Gloria Freaking Steinem. Never change.)

Check out Ariana's words in their entirety, then be sure to go outside and high-five a feminist today.
