IF RIHANNA IS REALLY REUNITING WITH CHRIS BROWN, I’M LOSING FAITH IN HUMANITY
“Part of being a feminist means believing that it’s not my job to police what a woman chooses to do with her body, her relationship, and her life; it’s none of my business. There’s a part of me that believes that Rihanna, as with any woman, has a right to be with whoever she chooses; saying that she can’t, or shouldn’t be, with a partner who she believes is reformed, takes me down an ethical slippery slope that feels far too treacherous to tread.
But at the same time, it feels patently anti-feminist to be OK with any woman returning to a man who savagely, violently assaulted her. For me, Brown’s actions were unforgivable, and I could never in good conscience buy one of his albums or even happily listen to one of his singles on the radio. And yet, it’s not my call to say.”
