What About the (Girl) Children?

23 Jul

Going off of FCM’s post, “Strange Days”, regarding the lyrical and video content of Katy Perry’s “E.T.” and Rihanna’s “S&M”, I present you with some extremely sad footage.

Nothing brings down your day like 9 year old girls singing “wanna be a victim/ready for abduction” and “chains and whips excite me”. A sign of the patriarchal apocalypse, to be sure. Here is a very small sample from Youtube:

At least one of the girls cringes at Kanye’s “alien sex” line.

    Well, shit. That was depressing. Great to know these little girls are singing about sadomasochism and then accessing youtube at age 9 to upload them.

    Woah.

    The second vid is kicking me off my chair. I cringed.

    If I had young kids I think I’d move someplace where there was no media access of any kind. Seriously disturbing, especially the second one.

    I’m not sure the girls in the first video understand very much of what it’s about. That would be a good thing.

    I have found that it’s virtually impossible to keep these lyrics out of my young son’s ears. The tunes are catchy and they want to learn the lyrics. I myself, cringed hearing my 8 yr old boy sing to the words. I’m not sure why our music must be about sex and degrading sex at that.

    However, I would not video my kids male or female singing to such music. As I hypnotherapist I know that they “get it” at a subconscious level. We have to do more to protect our kids and demand that society support it. It’s called social responsibility.

    Thanks for the post!
