Boycott 'Birthday Song' f/ Kanye & 2Chainz & stop support of sexist lyrics

      Austin, TX

'The Birthday Song', and other music of this nature, is negative, sexually demoralizing, demeaning and verbally assaulting toward women.   Marketed to impressionable teenagers, songs of this nature encourage and glorify unhealthy relationships, self-perceptions, and treatment of all women, regardless of race or economic status. 

 

This music, or rather, ‘prostitution performing art', is designed exclusively for the encouraged strip club culture.  It and its supporting 'soft porn' music videos have no basis for being on widely syndicated television networks and radio stations, played during the hours of greatest consumption by youth and teens. 

 

The lasting impact of continued exposure to this genre of widely supported strip club music has been measured by countless official and unofficial studies which positively correlate low-self esteem, hyper-sexually, and mental/physical/sexual abuse of women to hardcore sexually graphic and explicit music lyrics consumed daily. 

 

Lastly, this music not only concerns women, it affects the rising generation of impressionable teen boys, mis-guided, un-fathered men, who look to popular culture for role models and examples of success. 

 

Please speak with us, against 'The Birthday Song' and other music of this nature, and demand that record labels, media partners and advertisers place serious consideration to the free speech they support and endorse.

      I realize we come in all shapes and sizes.

      I realize that most women don't fit in the advertisers manufactured image of women.

      I realize that in many cultures size matters and a larger size is a more attractive, and more desirable image of womanhood.

      This video does not make that case. This is just a cheap theatrical denigration of women, and particularly women of color, and Black women.

      I think these images directly and negatively impact my life.
