6 Highlights You Need to Know From Ariana Grande's Feminist Twitter Post

Ariana Grande took to Twitter Sunday to voice her frustrations, opinions, and hopes for society.

Instead of using social media to rant about being victimized by the media, she's using it to help change the conversation on sexism while sharing her personal views on feminism.

We've summarized some of the best highlights from her post below:

1. Ariana kicks things off by calling out this problem at hand
"I am tired of living in a world where some are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present of future PROPERTY / POSSESSION ... I do not belong to anyone but myself and neither do you." 

2. While reminding us to #AskHerMore! 
"I have clearly not been having the boy question in my interviews lately because I have come to the realization that I have SO. MUCH MORE. to talk about." 

3. Of course she flawlessly summarized the sexual circle of life double standard 
"If a woman has a lot of sex (or any sex for that matter … she's a 'slut' If a man has sex … he’s a stud, a boss, a king. If a woman even TALKS about sex openly she is shamed."

4. However, she's still optimistic about the future
"I can't wait to live in a world where people are not valued by who they're dating, married to, attached to, having sex with (or not), seen with … but by their value as an individual."

5. All the single ladies, put your hands up!  to Ariana's outlook on being single
"I have never felt more present, grounded, and satisfied. I've never laughed harder or had more fun or enjoyed my life more."

6. She couldn't have ended it with a better quote
"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke … she will need her sisterhood" -Gloria Steinem
