The boys offended by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s new music, WAP (which stands for Moist Ass Pussy), are frequent. Their chief? None apart from US journalist and podcast host Ben Shapiro, who has taken centre stage within the WAP response for claiming that his ‘physician spouse’ would contemplate WAP a medical situation. Cue the memes.
It began when he recited the lyrics on his podcast, in what can solely be described as a world-record try on the quickest approach to dry up anybody’s WAP. Claiming that the sexually express lyrics are anti-feminist, he mocked ‘That is what the feminist motion was all about, and in the event you say something in a different way it’s ’trigger you’re a misogynist, see?’
Sure truly Ben, as a result of in case your first thought when listening to a music the place ladies declare possession of their sexuality and talk about intercourse in the very same means males have completed for many years is to mock them and, with all of your expertise of being a girl, declare that they don’t perceive feminism… you’re a misogynist. Actually, to be so offended by two ladies expressing their sexual wishes speaks volumes about the way in which you view ladies.
Being ‘vulgar’, as he calls it, speaking our sexual wants with confidence, and having fun with intercourse doesn’t make a girl any much less feminist – it makes us multi-faceted people and, frankly, courageous. Courageous as a result of having the arrogance to talk as overtly and explicitly about intercourse as males do in a world that punishes ladies for claiming possession of their sexuality (living proof) whereas concurrently treating them as sexual objects isn’t any small feat.
However critical factors apart, it’s the meme replies to Ben’s feedback which might be finest. Most notably, when he made one very illuminating assertion about his personal intercourse life after claiming that his spouse would contemplate WAP to be a medical downside.
‘As I additionally mentioned on the present, my solely actual concern is that the ladies concerned — who apparently require a “bucket and a mop” — get the medical care they require. My physician spouse’s differential analysis: bacterial vaginosis, yeast an infection, or trichomonas,’ he tweeted.
Like moths to a flame, the Twitter comedians descended. Oh boy was it good. Simply have a look for your self…

Actually, jokes apart, the snowflake response from males offended by WAP was to be anticipated, however that doesn’t make it any much less of a disappointment. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have each since responded to the backlash themselves with jokes about offending males, however it’s unhappy that two of the most important rappers can’t come collectively to create an absolute banger with out this commentary of feminine sexuality and whether or not it’s proper or flawed ensuing. Ben, please, step out of this dialog for now and possibly focus by yourself expressions of self and sexuality. It feels like your spouse may want it.
