Why Erykah Badu’s Opinion Is Dangerous
Dominique Matti

I thoroughly agree with you that Men and young boys should be responsible and accountable for their behavior. However, I strongly disagree that the way for young girls/women to feel beautiful and wield power is through what they wear. True beauty and power comes from the inside.

Young girls as well as young boys should be taught to know who they are, what they are made of and what they are made for. They should be encouraged to explore their gifts and derive esteem from their ability to perfect their gifts and add value to humanity.

It is counterproductive to prescribe focus on external facade as a panacea for an internal deficiency. There is something wrong with the assertion that a young person needs to depend on their outward appearance to feel beautiful and powerful. Let’s build powerful and beautiful children by imparting knowledge, skills and values in them.
