Why do I even bother?

So apparently some pop song is about rape (or so some feminists say) and saying a woman has a baggy vagina is…. oh hell, we can’t even untangle it, but Spark Fister does it better than we can anyway, and GirlWritesWhat chimes in with a great comment.

GirlWritesWhat’s comment from YouTube:

I find it bizarre that this girl castigates Robin Thicke (and I’m no fan, believe me) for having scantily clad women in his video, while simultaneously asserting that she should be able to walk around half naked.

And this is a rape song:

I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

The only sexual assault occurring here is the woman grabbing the man without him making clear he was consenting.

The way you grab me, must wanna get nasty, go ahead get at me

That’s an invitation to “enthusiastic consent”, not rape. The only actual physical contact that occurs in the song is the woman grabbing at the man. The rest of it is him telling her what he would do, if she consented. What he can do, that other men can’t.

Swag on, even when you dress casual
I mean it’s almost unbearable
In a hundred years not dare, would I
Pull a Pharside let you pass me by
Nothing like your last guy, he too square for you
He don’t smack that ass and pull your hair like that
So I just watch and wait for you to salute
But you didn’t pick
Not many women can refuse this pimpin’
I’m a nice guy, but don’t get it if you get with me

“IF you get with me.”

So in literal terms, the woman in the song is sexually touching the man. He’s expressing his willingness and then handing the next move to her. And she is playing coy, and despite his hair-pulling, ass-smacking cred, the song ends before he ever lays a finger on her. The ball is totally in her court.

Likewise, the video consists of women showing off their sexuality, while the men alternately drool, ogle, long for, but never really touch. It’s hands off, unless the woman wants it, even though the women are using every possible way of getting the men under their thrall.

The song is a paean to the power of female sexuality, and male subordination to that power.

“I just watch and wait for you to salute.”

RAPE!!!!!!

Again, I’m wondering how these women manage to tie their shoes, they’re so dim. How can they call a song where a man invites a woman to enthusiastically consent before he lays a finger on her promoting rape of women by men? How can they call a song where a woman is pawing a man (who is internally consenting, but who did not explicitly indicate such prior) promoting rape of women by men?

What the fuck drugs are these feminists on?
