I was reading the response on The Quietus to something that Aidan Moffat posted on Twitter, apparently, in regard to this song, and I've been aware of the controversy surrounding it because it's been all over the fucking place. A few things I am still not sure after reading his defense of the song is why if there are so many women backing his opinions they so often seem to stay silent and let the guys do all the big talk to the media. I was surprised to see a relatively large crowd of engaging (they asked most of the questions) women attending a Bret Easton Ellis platform a couple of years ago, but I've been wondering since where all the ones who defend this type misogyny are hiding in the daytime.

a writer for Cracked.com wrote just this week about how Robin Thicke is the new vanilla Ice. http://www.cracked.com/quick-fixes/w...w-vanilla-ice/

as far as the women who defend the misogyny, they are at home scared to come out in daylight lest their "man" see them not cleaning and cooking.

I think that I can be potentially more misogynistic than this song and your post put together.

The shit thing about this is that while everyone gangs up on robin thike (quite rightly), Pharell gets away with it and wanders around like he's saved modern pop music while everyone sucks his dick
the only difference between the two is that Pharell is hot.
That's pretty fucked up if you ask me

I completely agree with AM about "I know you want it" not being sexist. Plenty of girls use that line too. Douchebag club culture (which Thicke is clearly singing about) is all about power, control and not letting yourself look weak. You're never supposed to act like you want to take a girl/guy home, you have to get creative and fuck with them. That's the way that culture operates and it's not changing any time soon

remember when Miley stroked his dick with a foam "We're Number 1!" finger while he was dressed as beetlejuice and he did not even like it?

 


 


The scary part is that Robin Thicke was a last minute addition, when Billy ray Cyrus was bumped from the telecast.

Fucking shit, these pictures are evidence of everything that is truly wrong with the world. It sickens me that in 250,000 years of human evolution, THIS is the end result, all of our theoretical answers must be facepalming..

I like the song myself, despite the shit lyrics. I don't know, it's too hard to believe that scapegoating some pop song and the moron who sings it is ever going to stop a rapist from raping. It's much more likely that a lot of rapists may not even listen to music at all. How many examples similar to this have we already had with pop bands in the past and precisely fuck all happened in terms of stopping violence against women? Why are Duran Duran or Guns 'n Roses still walking the streets free?

Am I a shit guy for thinking that the song wasn't about rape so much as being a douchebag? There is a big difference

there will always be those who seek to scapegoat music/art/video games/etc. They are usually the very ones doing the shit they blame on music/art/video games/etc.

and please everyone, do not forget that MTV's target audience is 12 YEAR OLD GIRLS. This is by their own admission, so how do you see Miley Cyrus' pedo party on stage with Robin Thicke now? Does it make any sense for a corporate entity to shove these things on pre-pubescent kids? MTV makes shows like Teen Mom to show young girls what they can aspire to?
