Examples of Toxic Femininity: Jennifer Lopez Doing It Well
Most people who have viewed Jennifer Lopez Doing It Well probably don't see it as a glaring example of Toxic Femininity. Oddly, sadly, they probably mistake this popular music video for some sort of female empowerment.
But imagine a music video in which a beloved and celebrated male pop star portrays gratuitous violence against approximately a half-dozen women for which he experiences virtually no social condemnation or reproach. We would clearly and immediately condemn it as a significant and troubling glorification of violence against women.
Why do we allow women to get away with this? Let's call this out for what it is. It's Toxic Femininity. And Lopez is Doing It Well.
