Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless.

"What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)

exempli gratia (for example)

id est (that is)
I didn’t take three years of Latin to deal with this.

FOR MY ENTIRE LIFE I THOUGH “I.E.” WAS IN EXAMPLE AND “E.G.” WAS SOME DUMB WAY OF SAYING “EGGSAMPLE” OR SOMETHING OH MY GOOOD


okay, but if the version in the macro helps people remember how to use them ~correctly~ I don’t see the problem???(I mean, there’s really not much functional difference between the latin translations and these colloquial understandings sooooooo)
