Am I getting OLD?

At first I was thinking... maybe I too am getting old (At 23) but then I quite liked it. Not sure how it is feminist though? But then I can never understand what rappers are actually saying.

Oh I just think its feminist because there is equal anger and dynamism on both parts, it expresses a right for a female to be weird and angry and upfront and arrogant without feeling forced, fake or corporate, and there is a strong sense of humour about the ridiculousness of some male roles and an ok-ness about female presence that is upfront about but not reliant on sexuality.. not on roles, subservience, standard magazine prettiness, and certainly takes the piss out of men and women in their relationship to sex.

Also I really like the 'baby's on fire' video that shows a stupid older brother sleeping with many women (other people's sisters) whils t simultaneously being personally insulted (and jealous/controlling) with his sister's partners that she is obviously seeking, but he sees them as manipulating his sister. In the end he gets his comeuppence.

I think I just like how ballsy and weird she is without feeling contrived or a puppet of some fat american record exec!

Well, I couldn't understand what they were singing <chomps gums>

My first impression was yes, 'weird', but not sure how that equates to feminist.

The sequence in the 'gynaecologists' was really quite foul. A woman has an insect pulled out of her fanjo - doesn't this just once again suggest that women's genitals are disgusting?

I didn't like this one much either.

Weird racist stuff. I could only watch about 3 seconds of that. Oh and top rated comment on the video was "BITC?H PLEASE @@!!!! OPERATION KILL THE BITCHES !!! "

So yeah, it's basically an anti-feminist video hating on Lady Gaga.
