Well, what a social media merry go round it’s been for sexist scumbags!
Just as we’ve spectacularly booted Julien Blanc out of the country, in comes goofy, fuzzy haired, rapper Red Foo spreading his misogynistic message that girls are party killjoys.. if they refuse to get drunk or having sexual encounters being posted on social media.
Oh shit. When did women get so uptight?
So uptight that he has to tell them to “Shut The F*** Up”
Relax, people. It’s really quite okay, because apparently it’s satire.
Promoting sexual aggression and rape culture is…guess what? FUNNY!
Last week, I came across the Julien Blanc saga when randomly scrolling my Twitter feed and saw the change.org petition to cancel all his shows.
I signed with little hope it would account to anything.
Hello, to my delight, in less than 48 hours his visa was revoked and now the change.org quest continues to stop all his shows in the US.
Thanks to that one sign up, I get notifications about petitions trying to stop other douchebags who roam the interwebz flying the feral flag of sexual violence and rape culture.
While being constantly exposed to these updates make me uncomfortable and angry, I realize awareness is important and so is being proactive.
Simply, I don’t want my boys growing up in a society that teaches them to disrespect women.
And to take the words out of his own filthy song and turn them into a stance for gender equality, “Literally, I can’t… ignore this shit anymore”
Despite claims that his intentions were harmless and the song was just one big joke, I bet Red Foo’s havng the last laugh now, especially with the already 15,000+ signatures on the change.org petition for Channel 7 to sack him.
I’ve signed it.
They only need 9,000 more signatures (at last count).
X-Factor can always get another judge.
