I saw this on…Pinterest, of course, and I got to thinking.
On the surface, this appears to be comparing the treatment of women from yesterday to today. I’m guessing the message is that during the 60s a woman was treated with respect. She was called a woman and the simple title of pretty is demure and has little to do with objectifying her. That’s nice. The songs a touch annoying, but “pretty woman” is a nice compliment.
The second quote is obviously more…daring and could be construed as disrespectful on the surface.
Akon’s voice annoys me because he sounds like he’s singing through one of the voice enhancer things, but that’s not the point.
Sexy Bitch…I think I like that too. There’s certainly nothing wrong with being sexy and a woman can be her sexiest fully clothed. The stereotype is some woman gyrating in those weird one piece bathing suits without the sides, but that’s not sexy at all. I don’t like when sexy is reduced to classless. Truly sexy is so much more.
I’ve been called a bitch and I don’t always take that as an insult. Bitches are vocal, they stand up for themselves and often times have to tell people things they don’t want to hear. Bitch can be powerful.
I think these two phrases were put together to show a change, but I’m not sure the change is all bad. Besides, they are obviously extremes and I’m sure the vast majority of woman are pretty women with a side of sexy bitch and that’s just wonderful.
