Venker: 'Quality' Men Don't Want 'Slutty' Wives Like Beyoncé
The right-wing outrage at Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s performance at the Grammy Awards continues. In a blog post on her website last week, “men’s rights” advocate Suzanne Venker responded to a New York Post article that called Jay-Z “a poor excuse for a husband,” by contending that Beyoncé is also “a poor excuse for a wife.”
“Behaving as Beyoncé does, or anything close to it, will not produce men who are invested in women. It will merely produce more Jay-Zs, or ‘poor excuses for a husband,’” Venker writes. “If women want a quality husband, they might begin by being quality material themselves.”
“Women like Beyoncé aren’t just contributing to the problem—they are the problem,” she adds. “Classy behavior begets classy behavior. Slutty behavior begets a smut reaction.”
We are sure that Beyoncé and Jay-Z appreciate the relationship advice.
Beyoncé a Poor Excuse for a Wife
In an oped for the New York Post, entitled “Jay Z a poor excuse for a husband,” Naomi Schaeffer Riley asks, “What do you call a man who stands there smiling and singing as his scantily clad wife straddles a chair and shakes her rear end for other men’s titillation?”
Answer: I don’t know—a loser? What do you call a scantily clad wife who straddles a chair and shakes her rear end? Or should this question not be asked since it paints a woman in a negative light?
There’s no wondering, Ms. Riley. Women like Beyonce aren’t just contributing to the problem—they are the problem. This isn’t a chicken or egg scenario. If women didn’t do what they do in the first place, men like Jay Z would have no opportunity to respond—poorly or otherwise. Classy behavior begets classy behavior. Slutty behavior begets a smut reaction.
Indeed, which means women haven’t really progressed at all—at least not when it comes to their personal lives. On the contrary, they’ve simply traded one kind of power for another. They may know what it takes to be successful in the marketplace, but they are clueless about the power women wield in love. Behaving as Beyonce does, or anything close to it, will not produce men who are invested in women. It will merely produce more Jay Zs, or “poor excuses for a husband.”
If women want a quality husband, they might begin by being quality material themselves.
