Transcript of Music, etc.: A Feminist's Perspective

Women in Music Aretha Franklin Madonna Whitney Houston Tina Turner 'Women in music are still prisoners of their sexual roles: for example, an ageing female rock star is almost an impossibility. Tina Turner is the shining exception, but she is black: Someone already on the margins through being black, gay or diverging from the norm in some other way, can bend the limits' (Ellen Koskoff) Beyonce Mariah Carey Janis Joplin Stevie Nicks Miley Cyrus Tayor Swift Taylor Swift Lady Gaga Britney Spears http://www.shoutmouth.com/index.php/news/The_50_Hottest_Women_In_Music?page=51 Spice Girls http://www.dailypennsylvanian.com/node/17445 http://www.popcrunch.com/15-sexiest-female-musicians-that-dont-suck/ (oo) What you want

I Want To Cater To My Man Cater 2 U Now I've probably got the feminists all pissed off at me because I'm joking about rape.
Feminists want to control your language. Feminists want to tell you how to talk.
And their not alone. Their not alone. I'm not picking on the feminists.
They got a lot of company in this country. There's a lot of groups, a lot of institutions in this country want to control your language.
Tell you what you can say and what you can't say. Government wants to tell you some things you can't say because it's against the law.
Well you can't say this because it's against the regulation.
Well here's something you can't say because it's a secret.
"You can't tell him that, because he's not clear to know that."
Government wants to control information and control language, because that's the way you control thought...
and basically that's the game their in.
Same with religion. Religion is nothing but mind control.
Religion is just trying to control your mind, control your thought, so their going to tell you some things you shouldn't say because they're sins.
And besides telling you some things you shouldn't say, religion's going to suggest to you some things you ought to be saying.
Here's something you ought to say first thing when you wake up in the morning.
Here's something you ought to say just before you go to sleep at night.
Here's something we always say on the third Wednesday in April after the first full moon in spring at four o'clock when the bells ring.
Religion is always suggesting things you ought to be saying.
Same with political groups of all kinds, political activists, anti- bias groups, special interest groups, are going to suggest the correct political vocabulary.
The way you ought to be saying things, and that's where the feminists come in.

As I said, I got nothing against the feminists.
In fact, I happen to agree with most of the feminist philosophy I have read.
I agree for instance, that for the most part, men are vain, ignorant, greedy, brutal assholes who've just about ruined this planet
...who've just...who've just about ruined this planet because they're afraid someone might have a bigger dick out there somewhere.
Men are basically insecure about the size of their dicks and so they go to war over it.
You don't have to be a political scientist or a history major to see the bigger dick foreign policy theory at work.
It goes something like this..."what they have bigger dicks? Bomb them!!!"
And of course the bombs and the bullets and the rockets are all shaped like dicks.
I don't understand that part of it, but it is part of the equation.
So I agree with that abstract. That man... men...males have pushed the technology that just about has this planet in a stranglehold.
Mother Earth raped again, guess who..."hey she was asking for it."

I also happen to like it when feminists attack these fat-ass housewives who think there's nothing more to life that sitting home on the telephone,
drinking coffee, watching TV and pumping out a baby every nine months.
P-poom, p-poom, p-poom, p-poom, p-poom...will seven be enough Bob?
...p-poom, p-poom. But what's the alternative? What's the alternative to pumping out a unit every nine months?
Pointless careerism? Pointless careerism? Putting on a man-tailored suit with shoulder pads and imitating all the worst behavior of men?
This is the noblest thing that women can think of?
To take a job in a criminal corporation that's poisoning the environment and robbing customers out of their money?
This is the worthiest thing they can think of? Isn't there something nobler they can do to be helping this planet heal?
You don't hear much about that from these middle-class women.
I've noticed that most of these feminists are white middle-class women.
They don't give a shit about black women's problems.
They don't care about Latino women.
All their interested in is their own reproductive freedom...and their pocketbooks.
But, when it comes to changing the language, I think they make some good points,
because we do think in language and so the quality of our thoughts and ideas could only be as good as the quality of our language.
So maybe some of this patriarcho shit ought to go away.
I think spokesman ought to be spokesperson.
I think chairman ought to be chairperson.
I think mankind ought to be human kind, but they take it too far, they take themselves too seriously,
they exaggerate.
They want me to call that thing in the street a personhole cover.
I think that's taking it a little bit too far.
What would you call a lady's man, a person's person?
That would make a He-man an It-person.
Little kids would be afraid of the boogieperson.
They'd look up in the sky and see the person in the moon.
Guys would say come back here and fight like a person.
And we'd all sing "for it's a jolly good person."
That's the kind of thing you would hear on late-night with David Letterperson.
You know what I mean? So...so I think it's an exaggeration and I like to piss off any group that take's itself a little bit too seriously.
An it does not take a lot of imagination to piss off a feminist.
All you gotta do is run into NOW headquarters or Ms. magazine and say,
"hey, which one of you cute little cupcakes wants to come home and cook me a nice meal and give me a blowjob!" "blowjob!"
Oh. Oh, that pisses them off. You want to piss off a feminist, call her a cum-catcher.
That'll get her attention. Aww don't act disgusted. Don't act disgusted.
Half of you are going to go home and go down on each other tonight remember?
If you're willing to swallow cum, let's not make believe something I said was disgusting. Okay? Huh?
All right, let's not have a double standard here, one standard will do just fine.

Now, speaking of blowjobs, do you know why they call it a blowjob?
So it'll sound like it has kind of a work ethic attached to it. Make you feel like you did something useful for the economy.
As long as I'm being a complete pig up here, let me ask you guys a question.
Let me ask, let me ask one question of the men.
Are you ever able to watch a woman eating a banana and not think about a blowjob? Huh?
I can't do it and I know why. I'm a sick evil fuck.
I accept that, but I can't do it. Eating a banana, eating a pickle, licking on an ice-cream cone.
I'm saying to myself, look at the tongue on her. Wooowww.
So you women be careful when your standing in front of that Hägen Daz.
Cause god dammit were watching, hah, and god dammit were thinking.

Another women's issue, prostitution. I do not understand why prostitution is illegal.
Why should prostitution be illegal. Selling is legal. Fucking is legal. Why isn't selling fucking legal?
You know, why should it be illegal to sell something that's perfectly legal to give away.
I can't follow the logic on that at all. Of all the things you can do to a person, giving someone an orgasm is hardly the worst thing in the world.
In the army they give you a medal for spraying napalm on people.
Civilian life, you go to jail for giving someone an orgasm.
Maybe I'm not supposed to understand it.
