Is It Sexist To Trash Miley Cyrus' Bizarre VMAs Performance?

No one's talking about the fact Robin Thicke is a married man with a son.

Posted on

Though most viewers are in agreement that the performance wasn't exactly great.

#Slutshaming @MileyCyrus for the VMAs tonight is just insane. This is not the right reaction to her performance.

Is it sexist to bash Miley Cyrus for being just as sexual as Robin Thicke?

I keep hearing about Miley Cyrus' performance at the VMAs but no one is talking about how Robin Thicke was dressed like Beetlejuice. #weird

But the amount of backlash against Thicke pales in comparison to what's being said about Miley Cyrus.

And no one’s saying it was inappropriate for Robin Thicke to let a girl much younger than him grind on him, when he’s a married father

Robin Thicke, however, is married with a son.

Everyone's bashing Miley, but no one's freaking out about the fact that Robin Thicke is a married father yet still allowed it to happen.

Fagan critcizes the way people find it cathartic to trash her for being a "slut."

When we are fed such a filtered, managed image of a human being for so many years — an image so thoroughly scrubbed for family-friendliness that we begin to doubt their humanity at all — it's a particularly cathartic experience to see them fall. Hannah Montana was so pure, in such a manufactured way. Miley Cyrus gets to be dragged through the mud as a "gross slut," and that is fun. That is the downfall her story arc was always looking for.

Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarboroug railed against Cyrus for a full 5 minutes Monday morning.

nbcnews.com

At the end of Monday's Morning Joe segment the anchors ask what Robin Thicke was doing out there with Cyrus, but it seems as though the majority of viewers saw things differently:

I love Miley and all but we get it now, your grown up, you don't have to rape Robin Thicke on the stage for us to know.
