Toot it and Boot it!
Rap lyrics are pretty notorious for degrading women and being explicit. When I stumbled up the song “Toot it and Boot It” by YG I thought it was pretty funny.
When I listened to the lyrics it wasn’t as funny as I realized what toot it and boot it meant—fucking a girl and kicking her out. The some of the lyrics include
I asked her name and then I said I wanna fuck / and I’m YG and you know I fucked /
and she fucked back like a little slut / and she fell in love ya /
and she felt stupid cuz you know / I toot it and boot it
I don’t know why this particular song bothers me because most of the songs I listen to are similar to this. But I guess this is part of our culture now, with songs like this and TV shows like Jersey Shore provide examples of “Toot it and Boot It”. Every episode Mike and Pauly bring home “DTF” girls and kick them out soon after smushing. It’s interesting because I laugh at these episodes and listen to all these songs but when I think about the concept of it, it is pretty nasty. Are these types of things acceptable? Are these behaviors acceptable?
