I found this point to be particularly interesting because it is a conversation I have often had in my own household. My mom and I frequently have debates about Beyonce's image and its implications for young women like myself. My mom adamantly believes that Beyonce has a very toxic image that teaches young women that the only way we can succeed in life is through the use of our bodies. I, on the other hand, believe that Beyonce is very empowering to women my age by showing us that we can take a stand and declare our independence and go after what we want. Although, I do see my mother's point of view as well.
