Me: 

I wish i still had photoshop.
Also, going to start TooSluttyfortheWhiteHouse.Tumblr.com
Mostly pictures of Joe Biden with that pink stamp on it.

Erin: 

Do your homework.
PS that did actually make me LOL.
Also, KINDA cut this didn’t make Screw Rock.

Me:

I didn’t even want to put it on Facebook just in case.
Also, the writer of what the Australian calls the “best Australian feminist blog” follows me and I keep thinking she’ll unfollow me, because I keep posting stuff under my Misogyny is Awesome! tag which this definitely qualifies for.

Ladies get this, mostly, but it’s a new thing for guys. While women are, of necessity, more adept at coexisting with unrealistic romantic ideals, dudes are just getting used to it, and it’s confusing, especially if you try to take the fantasy literally (as we tend to do).

Lil’ Boosie ft. Trina & KaDe - Miss Kissin’ On You (Superbad, 2009)

One of the few artists who can make the For The Ladies jam work is Boosie, and it’s basically because he convincingly buys into the song’s conceit. Boosie’s a pretty emotional rapper anyway, and he talks about women with the same intensity of emotion he applies to tales of celebrating in the club, or paranoia about death or the moral and/or financial decay of his community. Which is something your average FTL jam doesn’t have; those are usually about the rapper play acting with the intention of demonstrating they can relate to women. (This mostly consists of the rapper spouting a series of non-specific, easily interchangeable compliments.) When Boosie raps about how he misses kissing on you, he sounds as sincere as when he raps about driving top-notch whips.

The other thing Boosie gets that put his FTL jams on the same level as the rest of his work is that women actually like sex. In fact, Boosie kind of collapses the nasty sex jam and the FTL jam into one. It’s a logical kind of theme that is stupidly rare in rap: A man and a woman are going to have nasty sex not because the man is insatiable and the woman is a freak, but because the man and the woman are two people who enjoy each other, and part of that enjoyment is nasty sex.

I forget where and why, but I once called Pimp C rap’s most unlikely feminist, and so it seems quite reasonable that his protege should also qualify for the distinction.
