Making a separate post of this because IT’S NOT TRUE, NOOO, STAWP SPREADING ITTTT.
Don’t mean to hijack a post to say NO U R WRONG but I keep seeing this post and that’s not what the song is about.
It’s calling the MEN the dogs because they’re running around panting and woofing at women.
“I heard a woman shout out—who let the dogs out?”
Then we see women as dog-catchers.
And a dog jumping up trying to get on a lady.
“Get back cruffy, back scruffy,
Get back you flea infested mongrel”
Is meant to be a woman telling a dog (a guy) to leave her alone.
Then there’s “to any girls callin’ them canine”. Clearly the women are calling the men dogs here.
“Say, a doggy is nuttin’ if he don’ have a bone” HE. Doggy is nuttin’ if HE.
“Well, if I am a dog, the party is on
I gotta get my groove ‘cause my mind done gone”
Dude’s acknowledging that he may be one of those guys at parties/clubs.
“Me and my white short shorts
And I can’t see color, any color will do
I’ll stick on you, that’s why they call me ‘Pit bull’”
He can’t see color, HE is the dog.
So don’t be crushed. It’s a song about guys acknowledging that other guys can be brazen and annoying when hitting on women when they just wanna have a ball at the club and dance.
OH THANK GOODNESS
did the baha-men really make a hit song addressing the harassment of women?
well check y’all out
It is December 6th, and I remember.
I was 13 years old when Marc Lépine opened fire and murdered 14 women for being at engineering school when he wasn’t. He blamed feminism for the situation he was in, and murdered these women for being in non-traditional jobs, for being there.
Every year, the memorials I go to are different. Some are quiet - I remember several winters in the snow, holding candles and reciting names like a talisman against violence.
Geneviève Bergeron, 21 years old. Hélène Colgan, 24 years old. Nathalie Croteau, 24 years old.
When I was younger, they seemed impossibly mature and sophisticated. I used to imagine them laughing and enjoying university, cut down without warning. Now that I’m 35, they seem so young, and I wonder if they were afraid.
Self reblog from last year. Still worth reading. Still remembering.
But I can’t deny that this memorial always leaves me disquieted. We go silent for a night, or we scream for a night, we rage against the dying of the light. But 582 aboriginal women are missing or murdered, and we don’t remember them the way we do these 14. We have a barely-acknowledged Trans Day of Remembrance. We don’t talk about sex workers murdered whose deaths are so unimportant that serial killers can operate with impunity until they start on “real” women. If we started naming girls murdered by parents, women with disabilities murdered by caregivers, how long would our yearly remembrance be?scowlowl)
