    Hello Sisters…in the spirit of true dialogue and understanding, I’m wondering how long I have to wait until my response is posted. I respect your usage of my blog and the critique that you made of it and but I think a healthy dialogue process would allow me to respond. I would appreciate any insight you could provide me on this process. Thank you.

    Thank you. I definitely think that you did some cherry-picking to make your point. I wish you had allowed the layered context that I wrote this piece in to speak for itself… rather than snatching pieces of out context and then embedding them with your own meaning and interpretations. When writing my post, I spent a great amount of time trying to articulate why the issue of Beyonce (flaws and all) was a complicated one…and why her voice is still important and relevant….why she is a sister that we should still engage. And why her song is still worthy of feminist dialogue. I respect layers and nuance and gray area. I specifically left NineteenPercent’s piece intact to avoid this kind of butchering and simplification.

    However, I do respect and appreciate your voice and perspective. As I stated before, I think a strong feminist movement should be one of inclusion and understanding. I’m okay with agreeing to disagree.
