The important lessons Beyoncé is teaching young men

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.”

When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”

6 Life Lessons From Beyoncé

  2. Take care of your mind and body and don’t feel selfish for doing so.
  3. Beauty comes from within, don’t focus on the aesthetic.
  4. Be self-reliant and don’t let other people’s opinions take you off course. You are the only one responsible and capable of taking care of yourself as you need.

  6. Don’t give in to the expectations of others, never settle and set your own timeframes to achieve satisfaction.

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.
