WAP - WTF or Female Empowerment?
Aug 15th, 2020 by theconversations
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's hyper-sexualized single and video WAP (Wet Ass Pussy) has been the main topic of cultural conversation this week.
Raw and definitely unapologetic, these female superstars rap of their honeytrap sexual prowess and the ensuing wet rewards. Reminiscent of the raunchy tracks from Lil Kim’s 90s heyday, nothing is left to the imagination in lyrics that demands not suggests, “bring(ing) a bucket and a mop for this wet pussy.” The sexualized narrative in WAP’s lyrics and video paints the woman having agency over her body and sexual pleasure. But the discourse in the Culture posits, is this display vulgar, sending the wrong message and thus culturally damaging or is it simply the embodiment of female expression and empowerment? We discuss this and ask the broader question in this episode, does WAP represent a positive or negative reflection on the Culture?
