i am still so mad about that teens react video
literally nobody involved in this did any fucking research at all. the fine bros were not asking the right questions and these kids were not having the right responses.
“what are young girls who want to be like these rappers going to think when they see this? they’re going to think that they have to be half naked and make songs about twerking to get famous”
you have missed the entire point of the song and video. you have missed the entire point of nicki’s career. nicki minaj is an open testament on how women and girls are not allowed to be openly sexual in the way that men and boys are expected to be.
in anaconda she brags about her conquests as a man would. she flaunts her body as a man would. she is confident in the way men are.
in this video she has the power. she is not being objectified or overly sexualized. she cuts up and is disgusted with phalic symbols while standing in a kitchen wearing a sexy maid’s outfit. she slaps drake’s hand away. she is completely deconstructing the male gaze and it beautiful. she is not here to make men happy.
this is the message she is sending young girls. she is telling young girls that its okay and normal and amazing to be openly sexual and to embrace your sexuality.
the fact that these kids and the fine bros miss that and not only miss it but condemn it, all while talking about how rape culture defines our society and how women shouldn’t be hyper sexualized is just so gross and frustrating.
