Ariana Grande is sick of all your double standards! In a recent social media post, the 21-year-old singer shared a powerful essay, pertaining to the "I'm tired of needing to be linked to a guy" statement she recently gave The Sun.

"What I meant when I said what I said about not being Sean's ex is that I am tired of living in world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present or future PROPERTY / POSSESSION," she wrote. She added, "I... do not. belong. to anyone. but myself. and neither do you." Hear, hear.

Ariana, who also noted that she's from a "long bloodline of feminists," ended with a quote from feminist icon Gloria Steinem: "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."

We don't know about you, but Ariana just made new fans out of us. Read the full essay here:
