Two Unhelpful Ways Of Dealing With The Album Lemonade

On one hand there are men that get offended by the album as if a woman behaving unexpectedly is a direct threat to them. 

On the other hand, there are men that celebrate the album and the strength it talks about without understanding how, as men, they can make this strength unnecessary by treating women better.

The Hypocrisy Of Men

“You wouldn’t treat your mother/daughter/sister like that, would you?” is a common question most men have heard, but if we only take care of the women connected to us by blood, there will always be other men who will treat them poorly.

We shouldn’t need to warn our daughters, sisters and mothers against men like us. We should stop being men like us, and teach each other to be better.

The No-Win Scenario Of Gender Dynamics

Beyoncé highlights the lose-lose situation men put women in when they call them crazy. Act crazy and get ridiculed, don’t and get walked all over. 

Men are often too quick to tell women to stop acting a certain way without acknowledging their behavior often force women’s hands.

Beyoncé’s New Album

Beyoncé’s new album Lemonade tell us that black women are strong and why resilience is necessary.

The album attracted a lot of criticism for talking about race and gender. But this critics ignore that Lemonade is an expression of a very specific experience, that of the black woman. Worse, they miss the opportunity to empathize with.

“When a scientist runs an experiment, there are all sorts of results that could happen. Some results are positive and some are negative, but all of them are data points. Each result is a piece of data that can ultimately lead to an answer. And that’s exactly how a scientist treats failure: as another data point.”

Virtue ≠ Virtue Signaling

Jordan Peterson observed that virtues aim for balance and to avoid the extremes of the vices. Cultivating judgment about the difference between virtue and vice is the beginning of wisdom.

Modern relativism asserts judging how to live is impossible, because good and virtue are relative. Thus relativism’s version of “virtue” is “tolerance.” This leads to people broadcasting their tolerance as a form of self-promotion, and secret vice, which is also known as virtue signaling.

Order and Chaos

Order is where the people around you act according to the established social norms, remaining predictable and cooperative. Society is simultaneously structure and oppression.

Chaos is where the unexpected happens.

Everyone will judge the way you live your life. What matters most is that you are content and happy with how you are living your life.

1. Laugh often

It counteracts the hard days.

Marketing claims

Marketing claims behind alkaline water are based on the acid-ash hypothesis. The idea is that eating certain foods, like meat, dairy, and eggs, results in acid ash in your body, which increases your acid levels and causes health problems.

While there are some poorly designed studies that suggest alkaline water confers health benefits, there is no rigorous scientific evidence to support this belief.

The science behind blood pH

You can't change the pH of your body by drinking alkaline water. Your body regulates its blood pH in a very narrow margin. If your pH varied too much, you wouldn't survive. 

However, your diet does affect the pH of your urine. Most people's urine is about 6, which is acidic and not a problem. Alkaline may make your urine less acidic, but it doesn't make a difference to your health.
