She better say it. Erykah you fucked up BIG TIME. There is no way to warp or shift it. There’s no defense.
My friend dubbed this ‘Female Hotep bullshit’
MOTHERFUCKERS all on twitter making outkandis comparisons like: ‘if you dangle a meatball in front of a starving man…’
GTFOH sex is not a basic need in humans like food. How dare you make that bullshit comparison.
Women and girls are not for male consumption. On top of that…you imply that males, on a whole, are TOO FUCKING STUPID, to understand how shit works. That they can’t understand no means no, clothes are not consent AND that children are an automatic no!
If you are a male….and you are offended at this implication…..you may need to do some serious rethinking.
take a moment to read/ share this.
I don’t think Erykah is “fucked up”… I think that the issue can be more complicated than we can cover in a series of tweets. There is NO excuse for rape. I don’t think that she necessarily meant that short skirts would stop rape, but perhaps they curb unwanted attention in some cases… She did speak some truth… I mean the idea of a “teenager” is a relatively recent invention and it is culturally specific to certain groups. I mean there are so called “kids’ fighting wars, farming, working and creating families all over the world. Cultural rules don’t change nature or biology *(as far as attraction etc…). That doesn’t excuse men who prey on young girls but it is important to understand the hypocrisy of rape culture is steeped in contradictory social constructs. Men and women have a responsibility in dismantling rape culture and while I don’t think that Ms. Badu’s tweets were a solution… the overall dialogue that sprang from it was filled with many jewels from all sides…
** I agree with Diallo’s points but I’m not going to write off Ms. Badu’s point of view entirely because it’s not as rigid as what’s being selectively quoted. She agreed with a LOT of folks who were trying hard to fight her on this.
No need to invent a new term such as “Female Hotep BS” when 1996 gave us Baduism.
