Miley Cyrus: I’m Pretty Impressed.

She’s discovering who she is (including her own non-conforming gender identity), and she’s working to help LGBTQ teens, especially the homeless. She’s using her celebrity status to spread positive messages about accepting ourselves and encouraging us to help others. Are we going to put her down or write her off because she shows some skin and is an imperfect young person growing into adulthood? Many female pop artists show just as much skin and sing about sex too, that’s nothing new or unusual. I even liked the Wrecking Ball video, I thought it conveyed vulnerability in an interesting and artistic way and I loved the song itself.

Personally I think people need to stop judging her and start commending her for being such a positive voice for those who are oppressed and denied equality. You go, Miley!!

“All human beings have valid feelings and rights. I want to use my voice as a megaphone to young people everywhere and encourage human evolution. No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status.” -Miley Cyrus
