Here’s something I wrote for The Morning Bell about celebrity idealization. Feminist women entrenched in pop-culture are raised up to a pedestal for their beliefs. However, we tear them down for the very same thing. In this piece I look at who is to blame for the outrage and disappointment felt by fans when a feminist icon lets them down.
Is it our fault for thrusting expectations onto celebrities, for labeling them as iconic for beliefs they may not have consciously adhered to?
