Is this where our world is headed???
http://www.joe-stanton.com/post/9591501833/healywu-frakintosh-midnightrevue#disqus_thread Please go and read this post. I could not get it to reblog and I did not want to take more time on it. This guy is right. It is disgusting. Good on him for calling it out!
So apparently this Tyler guy thinks that it is ok to say things like “Victoria Jackson is going to take this dick or get socked in her fucking mouth.” This guy is supposed to be a star of some sort in the world of rap and hip hop. This is what we as a rape culture call entertainment and condone? The misogynistic words, the glorification of rape and violence against women is what we call fun and art? If this is the world we live in, then I weep for our children.
Wake up America! Wake up all nations on Earth! If we continue to treat this as a form of creative expression and art and say “What he really means is she is a pretty girl” instead of calling a duck a duck…we are in serious trouble. I am not a prude. I am not for censorship generally. This is not entertaining. This is not just “having a good time”. This is scary. This is sick. This is vile. This contributes to the dumbing down of the word rape. Making it something that “is not so bad” or “what she really meant was that she wanted it but was too shy to say so”. Is this what we want for our children? Is this the world that we want to live in? That we want our daughters, our sisters, our mothers to live in?
Something has got to give….
