Instagram users were not pleased with Cyrus's controversial new statement.
Another day, another uprising in Miley Cyrus’s comments section.
The singer’s been actively promoting her new "Mother’s Daughter" music video — you know, the one where Miley’s quite literally feelin’ herself in a Britney-esque red latex jumpsuit …
Anyway, one of the messages that flashes across the screen and has been reproduced on Cyrus’s feed is “Virginity is a social construct.” As with pretty much anything pertaining to sex, people had ~thoughts~ about the statement, the bulk of which skewed negative.
It seems that the whole “social construct” part of the message was lost on most, with many viewing Cyrus’s words as a blatant attack on maintaining one’s virginity.
Some also thought Miley was taking a stand against science?
Though I’m not a direct Cyrus translator, it seems like she’s not criticizing one’s decision to abstain from sex, rather society’s obsession with sexual status.
But OK, go off.
