In this man’s world, women have the nearly imposible challenge of being respected while still maintaining their femininity and sense of self. Never has someone so artfully walked this tightrope like the lyrical powerhouse and all-around role model Lady in her single “Pussy Be Yankin’.”

In this man’s world, women have the nearly impossible challenge of being respected while still maintaining their femininity and sense of self. Never has someone so artfully walked this tightrope like the lyrical powerhouse and all-around role model Lady in her single “Pussy Be Yankin’.”

Since I double majored in “The Portrayal of Women in the Media and Strip Club Management” at the University of Phoenix Online, I feel qualified to examine what critics are already hailing as “the Finnegan’s Wake of rap songs about pussies, made by Atlanta-based female rappers.”

First, Lady’s message is clear: I am in charge. She says, “My pussy be yankin’.” The pussy is the active / controlling agent in the romantic partnership (and yes, it’s romantic). The pussy yanks; it is not yanked upon. It’s not drilled, hammered, shredded, stretched, mangled, torn-wide-open or even simply “beaten-up,” as is custom in the traditional patriarchal power-structure model.

If anything, this pussy would beat you up. In fact, there’s a fair chance this pussy might kick open the front door at 3 A.M. smelling of whiskey and waving a loaded pistol. Black out drunk and foaming at the mouth, it’d pull you out of bed and you’d realize the only thing that could possibly pacify this heaving monster it is a good yanking. You’d have no choice but to accept and do your best to choke down your tears.

She is essentially the Kobe Bryant of getting men to take her seriously as something other than a sex object (pre Kobe raping that hotel attendant in Denver, of course). She flips expectation on its head in the male-dominated world of hip-hop. She takes two clearly gay male models, puts them in Under Armour, makes them parade around as cocktail waitresses (with trays of 4Loko), and then forces them to their knees, where they’re collared and treated like dogs. All things that, time and time again, gay men have gone on the record as hating.

The only piece of urban storytelling to even flirt with this radical concept is the unforgettable and inspirational “Smell Yo Dick” by Riskay.

    This is an imitation of ignorance…and that in itself is deplorable and pathetic and I truly hope she is speaking of someone named Pusie B. Yanken because a women’s genitalia doesn’t define her sex, she must define her sexuality and place it first
