Vern’s Venting: Slut Shaming White Women

Miiley Cyrus twerking on Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards

By now, everyone has either seen or heard about the infamous Miley Cyrus performance at the VMAs last month, you know the one where she bumps and grinds her ass against crooner Robin Thicke. Then, dances with a foam finger around some huge teddy bears. She also takes said finger then rubs it against her crotch.

The day after there was a firestorm, many in the media criticized her for being so unabashedly skanky. Then, feminist groups and bloggers came out in full force to defend Miley supporting her right to shake her ass, which leads me to question why is it that when a white female – in this case, one who is barely out of her teens – showcases herself in the most sexualized way possible is always considered a good thing? I say that because the opposite is true of black women, while any attack on a white woman is automatically labeled sexism.

They are basically saying that a white woman should be completely immune from criticism. But, it’s not sexism to call a woman who is behaving as a slut a slut. That’s just being highly observant.

Let’s cut the crap here. Miley is trying her damndest to shed the whole ‘Hannah Montana’ image, apparently by acting as the world’s nastiest and biggest skankbag ever. Her behavior was utterly appalling, but somehow because she is white, that makes it perfectly okay. And she’s not the only one that night.

Fellow entertainer Lady Gaga, not to be outdone, showed up in a seashell bikini that bared her ass, which she eagerly showed off for damn near the entire night by using any reason to bend over. It seems that musical talent and being a respectable artist that people could look up or emulate has been overshadowed by who can be the world’s best hoe.

I can remember a time when female singers relied just as much on their voice as they did on their looks. I have heard Miley sing, and if this is her only day job, then I highly recommend that she gives it up. But lack of true singing ability and showing one’s rear literally is not the only problem I have with the feminazi frenzy to protect Miss Miley. It’s the attitude that no matter how ridiculously over-the-top trampish a white woman is behaving, she is still seen as ‘pure’, and that white women are the only ones who are ever truly ‘hot’.

There have been countless white females, such as Kate Upton and Pamela Anderson, that have used their looks to their advantage financially, even white women who really aren’t that attractive *cough* Jennifer Aniston *cough*. And I have nothing against that. However, my issue is paralleling that with black women.

The very same white male brigade of moral authority that gets their panties in a twisted-up knot over any type of black female sexuality sings a much different song when it’s a white woman. They have made it perfectly plain that their disgust lies not with the behavior itself but the person and in this case women behind it. It’s why nobody bats an eye when a white girl named Fergie shakes her nice tight ass in music videos surrounded by black men or why music impresario Pharell Williams can have a bunch of scantily clad white women prancing around him with nary a peep from white males.

Yet, put a black woman in the same scenario and watch out! It will be a shitstorm to end all shitstorms. It will also be completely ignored by the feminists groups now taking up arms for Miley. The white women who run America’s most prominent feminist groups are notorious for leaving women of color out in the cold. They only acknowledge our existence when it suits them.

So, when you have the first black First Lady ever, they obviously have better things to do than actually give a shit about a supposed fellow ‘sister’ in the struggle. That’s because to them, their fight is not our fight, and their problems are not our problems. Even when it’s the same thing, they seem to believe that they couldn’t possibly relate to what we are going through and vice-versa.

What pisses me off most are the black women who nod their heads in agreement, knowing full well their so-called solidarity never comes from a place of genuine concern. When has-been actress Ashley Judd went after the rap community, black women were right by her side, all the while never questioning why it is that little Miss Ashley doesn’t appear to have any trouble tolerating the rampant misogyny in her own industry. I have a hard time believing that any instance where a white woman is there for a black woman is not being done out of a purely selfish self-serving purpose, especially when you take into account the countless times that white women could have been there for a black woman, but weren’t.

The feminist enclave stayed silent while Janet Jackson was persecuted relentlessly by bitter, racist hypocritical white males in the media for baring a naked tit for ten seconds. They acted as if she murdered an entire kindergarten class, never once mentioning that singer Justin Timberlake was the one who pulled her dress off and exposed her in the first place. Then again, he’s just another victim of the hussy, predator black female on the prowl ready to strike some unsuspecting white male.

See, we are not pure in our sexuality, and we bring it all on ourselves, of course, because we refuse to control our basic carnal urges. The only difference between us and black men – to them – is they do it by brute force, but we have to use mind games or voodoo. You can’t slut shame a black woman because we don’t have any. We bare and don’t care, and we obviously have no sense of decency or modesty.

That’s why when a sweet little thing like Miley comes under fire, the whole world has to stop. She is just a good girl wrapped up in slutty clothes that she can take off whenever, whereas we are like that 24/7. Maybe black women should look to Miley as a good example seeing how her purity shines through even while she ass humps an oversized teddy bear and a man old enough to be her father who evidently enjoyed it. Well bless her little heart.

  1. […]somehow because she is white, that makes it perfectly okay.[…]

    I beg to differ. White or not, IMO the behaviour is pathetic. Mainstream media is pathetic. The unthinkiing sheep who allow mainstream media to shape their worldviews are pathetic.

    This silly little girl probably had the whole routine foisted upon her by some shallow media pimp who wanted to use the sex-sells principle to hook the kind of unthinking (mostly male) fool who, thanks to indiscriminate consumption of unimaginatively explicit pornography and gutter tabloids, cannot appreciate any female who doesn’t strip off and shake it in his face. If that was the case, the silly girl probably thought it was all a great idea.

    All pretence to subtlety, depth, seductiveness, mystery – anything that remotely challenges the intellect and imagination has been abandoned in our media. As a 53 year old white male I cannot connect with this. It is just insulting to the performer and the audience alike. It is a shoddy, mass produced product.

    The alarming thing is that young people are now coming to view the things they see in cheap pornography as being the reality of relationships between men and women. They think they have to behave like ridiculous porn actors to be successful lovers.

    This tasteless rubbish Ms Cyrus did is just the tip of that iceberg. It’s shallow crap, but then that suits our pathetically unthinking consumer population. If they keep buying crap they’ll keep getting crap served up to them. It becomes the default standard.

    […]Maybe black women should look to Miley as a good example seeing how her purity shines through even while she ass humps an oversized teddy bear and a man old enough to be her father who evidently enjoyed it.[…]

    God (or one’s secular alternative of choice) forbid. Let’s hope there are enough thinking women of all races who are strong to resist the call to pander to the crass tastes that the media have instilled into stupid, brainwashed, drooling males.

  2. miley is lame, its funny that white women that have done the same thing are criticizing her a bit like cher and pink. But they didn’t go in on her that hard cher did a little but backed off. u right whenever a black woman does anything close to this we are hoes. did u see about rapper m.i.a she was sued by the nfl for her 2012 halftime show where she put her middle finger up and she tried to say oh well it was some black female cheerleaders dancing for Madonna and nobody said anything about that. I had to look at the vid and they were not dancing sexually to me and it was white girls in there too but she criticized the black ones smh. I could care less about white females like miley hoing themselves out but when they start using black women and trying to throw us under the bus I have an issue. white women can act like this and still be looked at as wifey material and respected a black woman does half of this and omg she deserves to be used and degraded and disrespected.

    1. I vaguely remember parents having a fit with their daughters dressing up like Madonna used to dress during the 1980’s. Most of those parents and their daughters were white, but the outrage soon disappeared after a short while, I think.

  3. I hate how ppl act like miley is a little girl she is dam 20 yrs old. yet this same media will attack a black person that has done some bad things at 17, 18, 19 and say omg they are grown and a thug, like we saw with trayvon they tried to say he was a man when he was 17. or chris brown they attacked him relentlessly for doing the same thing older white males in Hollywood have done but got a pass for.
    I don’t think anybody should try to be like miley or any of these lames, yes white women can do these things and get away with it but we shouldn’t lower ourselves to their low level. We see how a lot of them act when nobody tells them how to act they go crazy like this. we know the music industry is messed up but these are grown adults choosing to sell their soul for fame and fortune. if they are willing to listen to ppl that tell them hey do this go degrade yourself for a paycheck and they choose to do it that is on them. I have no respect for any of these artists today with the exception of a very small few. white privilege will always allow for white females to act like this and get away with it, if anybody calls them on it they will be told to keep quiet. if they did really criticize white women for acting like this then they know others wouldn’t look at them the same they wouldn’t look at them as worth respect.

    1. @ mstoogood4yall

      The words “This silly little girl” in my comment were meant as a pejorative mild put-down. Not that I think of her literally as a little girl. I guess it was a kind of sneer at her immature behaviour.

      @ all

      http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2013/oct/08/miley-cyrus-what-women-her-age-think

      From The Guardian, probably the closest thing the UK has to a credible mainstream media outlet.

      Consensus amongst the women interviewed (all white, as I commented on the article) seems to be that they view her behaviour negatively, but just don’t seem to see her as being of much relevance to anything. Certainly, none of them is impressed.

  4. Miley, has accomplished what she set out to do. She wanted all the controversy, her career was in the toilet. So she and her team went to the lowest common denominator. They chose the raunchy sex route. And people are eating this crap up. There is just no aaccounting for taste these days. If I hear the stupid word twerking, I will throw up.

  5. and did u see the snl skit where she’s like I;m not going to twerk anymore white ppl ruined it smh yeah and u are one of the white ppl that ruined it.

  6. She looks like one of those lizards that catch flies with her tongue. Why can’t she keep her damn tongue in her mouth. Ewww.

  7. We as a people need to stop giving them ideas. We need to market our new techniques, looks, and dances. We need to put a stamp on it so others know that we thought up this stuff. Peckerwoods will always copy anything we do (Jah made us first and we are made in The Creator’s image) and never give credit to us for coming up with it. Miley is just doing what Elvis and all of the others did. Yts only do two things to us. They use or abuse us. The ones that use us never give us anything in return. They do not intend to pay us back for teaching them anything. The yt man copies all he knows from the Black Man to impress the Black Woman with his new skills. The same goes for the yt woman. They are not our friends. It seems like our lost people are very surprised to see them coming to us for help anytime they do. If we refuse, then wp actually call us racist. We should not trust them ever. They are savages. Our lost ones need to stop believing that there are “good why-te people”. They are only putting themselves in danger. The yt male only has the body he appears to have because of his uncontrollable rage. He is always beating something for fun. We can see them in everything they have created. The yt male created the tractor to cut the grass. He enjoys slughtering pigs to make bacon. The yt male feels as if he must be in control of something. I doubt seriously that our albinos were like this before their stay at the Caucaus Mountains. They are dangerous, but our “African-Americans” do not see that. They need to stop believing in Amerikkka. We only built it, but the colors of the flag are not ours. We need to remember that. Our “African-Americans” should look at themselves a lot closely as they hold up those flags. They look real stupid. They never want to listen to anyone. Then, they are surprised when their son or daughter is paid less than a yt employee for doing the same job at a white-owned business. Yts will never throw us a bone for what they have done to us and continue to. They do not see themselves as sinister menaces like we all do. So, they believe that they are right in all of this. Unfortunately, our “African-Americans” think that they will change their ways. So, they stay looking for yts to accept them as workers and people. They are angered when yts call them lazy on and off the job. We must start our own businesses for the future generations to walk into. How much longer will this all go on for? How many loud wake up calls do our people need?

      1. Thank you, Brothawolf.

        Our people can do better than how they are doing. We are the greatest warriors.
