It's Not A Man's Prerogative To Change His Mind
Ludacris narrated that movie, The Heart of the Game, I mentioned the other day. Without his involvement, this great documentary about high school women's basketball (with feminist drama thrown in), may very well not have been released at a theater near you. And, make no mistake, this film is not sorta weakly feminist, it really goes for it and tackles some serious stuff: teen pregnancy, gender discrimination, gender roles, sexual assault.
But that's no good because Ludacris has done bad things too.
Once a person says something sexist, he better stick to it? I like it when sexist guys rethink and join our side - am I crazy?
How the hell are we ever supposed to make allies when we refuse to give props where props are deserved? I, as a feminist, want to commend Ludacris for lending his celebrity to this project, and for working toward his goal:
I want to empower the young ladies out there. It's about women's battles on and off the court.
