' performance at the VMAs, the "Wrecking Ball" video, and of course, Sinead O'Connor's "Open Letter," it was time to ask, "Why does America really care about Miley Cyrus?"
"And of course the real issue here isn’t that each of these women has had a bout with a dirty dance move and a lot of flesh showing on camera, but rather, that they dared to do it and not feel ashamed. That they dared to do it and own it as a part of who they were, a part of their own sexuality. Because this is what people are really scared of, they’re scared of women’s sexuality just like they always have been. If Miley takes her clothes off and grinds on a wrecking ball in front of their little girl, then someday, their little girl, or little girlfriend, or little wife, might do they same." -- Rachel Redfern
