I think not. One of my friends emailed me this morning and told me she thought it was disgusting.
Still, I think we were vastly outnumbered by those who loved it and saw nothing wrong with it. The halftime show was lauded on every TV news show this morning.
I can appreciate the beauty of these women–including their perfect bodies, their singing and dancing talents and their athletic abilities–along with the rest of the dancers. The sets and lighting were impressive too.
I loved the part in which they brought in the kids.
Stiil, I found the gyrating and pole dancing and ass shaking and general objectification of women offensive, not unlike soft porn.
In these times of #metoo and a Harvey Weinstein trial, how can we as women be okay with the sexualization of women as family entertainment?
Perhaps, this is just the ravings of a crabby, over-the-hill woman. Guilty as charged.
But don’t we want our daughters and granddaughters to feel good about themselves and their bodies? To not feel as if they are made just to please men–which is exactly what the show did?
The halftime show put us back a few decades.
