When watching the video, he refers himself as a "Super man". He dances an elaborate dance on beat with a superman emblem. Here's my question -- when did Superman start referring to women as bitches and hoes? I suppose Soldier Boy decided to reappropriate what the nature of a "super man" is.
Here's the breakdown of what Soulja Boy constitutes as greatness ... it's a man who, at will, associates a "Superman" stance as a dance and the way to enter into a woman's vagina to seek pleasure for himself and as he so aptly put it, "super soak that hoe/bitch". Now remember, according to Soulja Boy, a woman is a female dog who is begging for a good fuck by none other than him, but he would gladly share his hoe with an Arab --
I'm Bouncin On My Toe
Watch Me Super Soak Dat Hoe
I'ma Pass It To Arab
Then He Gon crank it up fo show (show)
What an appealing song that Soulja Boy has created. It's no wonder teenage girls and women alike are thrilled about this song. We just adore it when our fellow women are de-humanized to millions of listeners on radio stations worldwide! Hell, he's teaching young men, young women, adult women, and adult men all around the world how to enjoy a song while simultaneously degrading women with a coke and a smile.
And if you're lucky enough, you can get picked by the "Superman" himself as a "Soulja Girl". That's right ladies, step on up! Enjoy the respect you deserve by letting him physically objectify you!
"We have allowed greedy corporate executives - especially those in the entertainment industry -- to lead many of our young people to believe that it is OK to entertain themselves by destroying the culture of our people. From Imus to Industry: The business of stereotypes and degrading images," was the title of the hearing, referring to former radio host Don Imus, who lost his job after making derogatory comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team. The Imus incident has sparked debate within the music industry about black artists using offensive, misogynist and violent language."[source]
"We have a responsibility to speak authentically to our viewers," said Philippe Dauman, president & CEO of Viacom Inc., which owns such cable networks as MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and BET. [source]
How could this song / music video be feminist friendly and still maintain it’s pop appeal?
1. Stop de-humanizing women by calling them "bitches" and "hoes".
2. Show respect for women by not objectifying them and teaching the world that it's acceptable.
3. Sing about how both women and men play a part in sexual relationships -- as opposed to men being "in control" while the women are more than willing to accept whatever rules a man puts forth when it comes to sex.
4. Stop teaching females and males that being sexist is cool.
