We say to girls: "You can have ambition, but not too much
You should aim to be successful, but not too successful
Otherwise, you will threaten the man"

from Beyoncé (Ft. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie) – ***Flawless Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

DOUBLE STANDARDS!

In today’s society, women are taught to aim to be something in life, but nothing too extraordinary. They’re taught to be successful in what they do, but not too successful because they do not want to emasculate men.
