Eurovision 2018 delivers blow to ‘female empowerment’

While the annual cheesefest that is the Eurovision Song Contest might be of little relevance to most, the fact that it is watched by some 200 million people worldwide should raise some concern given the result.

It was another reminder of the dangerous impact that faux feminism and so-called social justice movements are having on Europe.

The nail-biting finish of the 2018 edition in Lisbon, between Eleni Foureira representing Cyprus and Netta of Israel, was symbolic of how ‘female empowerment’ is defined on the continent today.

In a head-to-head between a confident woman who clearly worked hard to get in great shape talking about how nothing can hold her back, up against an unhealthily overweight lady promoting ‘body positivity’ and slamming “stupid boys”, of course, in 2018 Europe, the latter came out on top.

Aside from the hypocrisy that the songwriter was a man and the backup dancers were not so ‘body positive’, it was further evidence as to what is valued higher by the European public when it comes to female empowerment.

There was even grounds for ‘cultural appropriation’ in Netta’s song ‘Toy’, as the singer wore Japanese attire and featured Chinese kitten dolls in the background, but they were swept aside as ‘body positivity’ seems to rank higher on the podium of the Oppression Olympics.

The song follows the growing trend of recent winners that contain a political or social justice message that don’t stand for much at all but rather claim victory on the basis of a few buzzwords, gulped up by a very morally confused public.
