SIGN THE OFFICIAL PETITION TO HAVE THICKE’S VIDEO REMOVED FROM YOUTUBE
Oh wow… I hate the song as much as the next cat but this takes it to psychotic proportions.
"Help help! Someone is doing something I don’t approve of! Let’s have them banished!" Get the fuck over yourself.
Boy did you miss the point.
Robin Thicke can make his shitty, overproduced music all he wants and I could give less than 0.5 fucks, but when you have a man singing about a girl in a club “getting blasted” and how he “knows she wants it”, that is toeing the line dangerously close to rape. Maybe you’ve never experienced what it’s like being a girl in a bar or nightclub—to watch people slip things into your drink when they think you’re not looking, to be grabbed, groped, and harassed, to be separated from your friends and pushed up against a wall or pulled into a bathroom—because if you had, you would know why so many people were horrified by this song.
Oh, not to mention, the song literally contains the lines “I’ll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two” and ” Not many women can refuse this pimpin’”. If that isn’t super misogynistic and rapey, I don’t know what is.
Now go sit down and think about what you say before it gushes from your stupid, bloated face again.
You seem to have read the lyrics but then again, you’re missing the entire point of the song.
I was gonna make a Blurred Lines post but I’ll just say it all here.
The woman in the song is stuck in a relationship with a guy that “tried to domesticate” her but Thicke sees that she’s “an animal, baby, it’s in your nature” meaning that she likes having wild sex but isn’t getting any from her current man so Thicke wants to help out and “liberate” her from her man.
There’s also “The way you grab me, must wanna get nasty” line. SHE is putting the moves ON HIM and actually GRABBING HIM SEXUALLY. If he wasn’t accepting of this, that would be fucking sexual assault like you idiots keep saying the song is about but it’s NOT because they BOTH WANT IT.
The “I know you want it” refers to the crazy wild sex the woman wants and her man is too dense to see it or something so Thicke wants to help her out because he likes crazy wild sex too!
Getting blasted just means getting drunk.
“I’ll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two” is sung by T.I. yet no one seems to be getting mad at him?? They’re all just getting mad at Robin Thicke, probably because he’s white and only white guys can do bad things, right? Also, it’s not rapey, it’s just CRAZY ROUGH SEX THAT SOME PEOPLE LIKE, OKAY??
“Nothing like your last guy, he too square for you
He don’t smack that ass and pull your hair like that” She likes rough sex, nothing wrong with that!
I seriously think most tumblr idiots are complaining about misogyny in this song because the main singer is white and white = EVIL. Seriously, there’s a LOT more misogynistic songs in rap and hip hop. Why don’t you fucking focus on them, since you apparently care so much about music like this, you internet slacktivists?
