In class we've been talking about women and how they are viewed in society. I looked on the syllabus and saw that we are going to talk about femininity in poetry, and Lil Kim is the artist to one of the songs we have to listen to. Thinking about Lil Kim and her career, I came to the realization that Lil Kim became famous for talking about Sex. Her and females like her in my opinion play into the stereotypes of women. Women are looked at in society as Sex symbols who can't be on the same level as men, especially in Hip Hop. By females rapping about only sex they are showing that females can't bring much to the table besides sex. I think females rely too much on sex and not enough on Talent. More Females like Eve, Missy, Remy Ma, need to come out and show men that females can rap and bring a lot to Hip Hop. I mean Sex sells, but so does Talent.
What do you guys think? Do women rely too muck on sex, or not?
