Cheeky videos are a symptom, not a cause, of our patriarchal pop culture. Our inability to picture the hip-hop mogul in a thong, the report claims, is proof of a double standard endemic to music video culture, where men are sex beasts while women — especially women of colour — are reduced to blank receptacles of male desire.
It all sounds agreeable enough at first. The real problem, of course, is the assumption that displays of feminine sexuality are indicators of sexual availability. That, and the framework of white patriarchal privilege that paves the way for this logical misstep, this mental game of hopscotch where the lines are all drawn wrong. Banning videos by Robin Thicke, DJ Snake, and Calvin Harris, who use female bodies as trophies hard won of their overpowering masculinity, will not deflect the male gaze. Yes, we have pop stars such as Rihannawho in her video for Pour It Up bucks patriarchal privilege by sitting on a throne surrounded by strippers — and exactly zero men.
But we need more. Because the real problem is not that women of colour are over-sexualised in music videos, but rather how absent they usually are in the dominant culture as well as in discussions of cultural issues.
