don't most of their videos involve them showing as little clothing as possible while lip-syncing to songs like "Bootylicious" and "Bug A Boo"

Why do they call themselves independant women? They only come out in clusters of three or four!

Because if you are a member of Destiny's Child, you have a 99.999% chance of being fired in a year.

Ummm.... okay, writing a song called Independent Women does NOT count as influencing women's rights....I can't even get into how wrong that was....oh well, one more step backward for feminism, all in the name of pop culture <sigh> when will they ever learn?

I'd be surprised if they had. I haven't heard of anything interesting they have done for women.

I absolutely agree. They help propagate the "women as sex objects" stereotype that helps to lower the self-esteem of young girls.

Hey!

If you don't want Destiny's Child, can I then have all three of them? Yep, they're my guilty pleasure.

So you know where to turn to if you want to rid of them.

C ya!
