Bitch Bad, Women Good, Lady Better

We LOVE this song. And we LOVE Lupe Fiasco for writing it.

The song is carried out by a video portraying the issues of sexism in the music industry. It shows the confusion between the double entendre of the term “bitch,” and how genders understand it differently as they grow up.

The little boy meets one of those little girls. And he thinks she a bad bitch and she thinks she a bad bitch. He thinks disrespectfully, she thinks of that sexually. She got the wrong idea, he don’t wanna fuck her. He thinks she’s bad at being a bitch like his mother. Momma never dress like that, come out the house, hot mess like that. Ass, titties, dress like that All out to impress like that. Just like that, you see the fruit of the confusion He caught in a reality, she caught in an illusion. Bad mean good to her, she really nice and smart. But bad mean bad to him, bitch don’t play your part. But bitch still bad to her if you say it the wrong way. But she think she a bitch, what a double entendre.

What are your thoughts on this song, and what are some ways we can change this perception?
