Can You Say Double Standard?

For years, men having been writing all about sex and degrading women. I literally Googled “Degrading songs about women ” and this link popped up:

For years, music has been talking about sex, getting into the mood, and many other ways of “doing it”. This linked popped up when I typed in “Songs about Oral Sex”:

And this was found in Mens Health magazine… OK??

So my question here is, this isn’t anything new. What is the big deal about Cardi B and her song, “WAP”? There have been so many songs way before her about sex and oral sex. Also her music video, is not even as bad as others. Does anyone remember “Blurred Lines”? Those women were literally naked in that video.

What I’m trying to get at here is this: IT IS NOT A BIG DEAL. If Ja Rule, Kayne, Frank Ocean, name any other R&B artist, or even pop or rock artist, made a song about BAD (You can figure out that acronym), no one would blink an eye. But because a woman does it, she’s disgusting and perverted.

This is 2020, where the world is burning down and we are in an uproar about a song. Let’s get a grip people, it’s not a big deal.

And if you still don’t believe me, Google “Top Songs about Sex”.

“Let’s Talk About Sex”

Let’s talk about something that I’m super intrigued by, because it has a huge impact on the music world.

Sex

I have no idea why, we let it impact our lives so much, but it does. So let’s talk about it.

I said in before, 90% of the songs are about love; well, let’s just say, half of those songs are literally about sex. I mean really! There are some childhood songs of mine, I had no idea were so “dirty”. Example: Spice Girls “Wannabe”.

I was so heartbroken to know that my childhood was tampered with. But the list goes on people. It goes on for a very long time!

Not to say it’s a bad thing, but not it’s taken over how we imagine ourselves. I recently went back home and everyone said I look so “Nashville”. I have no idea what exactly that means, but I’m assuming it has to do with my sex appeal.

Yes, I work behind the scenes, but I still maintain an appearance, because that is important in the industry. To a point, I may add. But with that being said, sex sells.

It’s marketing, it’s science, it’s whatever you want to make it to be.
