Beyoncé Voters Tumblr Puts Sexism In Its Place


What’s it called when you’re a single woman and you vote? Well, according to a guy on Fox News, you’re called a “Beyoncé voter.” That sounded complimentary and all (who wouldn’t want the name Beyoncé attached to a description of them?) until he explained that by his definition, Beyoncé voters “depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands.”

As you can imagine, the jaw-dropping sexism of this statement didn’t go over well with the general public. As a meme-a-rific way to protest, the Beyoncé Voters Tumblr page sprang up, putting Beyoncé lines mainly to images of powerful political women. Take a look at some of our faves. Oh, and the next time some guy makes a jab about women depending on their husbands? You just tell him to “bow down.”
