HURT YOU MORE

Male graffiti writers can be the most sensitive, moany, self-righteous, pseudo-philosophical guys ever, so I wasn't surprised to hear from someone within their circle that the HURT YOU BAD "Superblog" had cussed off the WAH blog as "a website would appear to totally overlook, or refuse to acknowledge, the division of the cultural world into gendered dichotomies — male (culture), female (nature); male (public), female (private/domestic); male (creativity), female (procreativity)."

Read their post here.

I had to actually laugh aloud at the deluded sexism within this statement (and even I, of all people, haven't used the word sexism for a loooong time) The very fact that "thegingerprince" has asserted those particlar antitheses from Ortner's essay is testament to the fact that misogyny is still alive and kicking within hip hop. Gender and the human body are both complex and amazing things and we are all in no doubt that men ('s bodies) are made to work and create and women are made to have babies. I refer to this a lot - that without work or pupose, men go nuts.

However, the whole point of WAH was to dispel the belief of women as "procreators" or "nature". This is no longer 1975 and for all those women who stay at home and make babies, there are just as many men who work 9-5's and do fuck all else. Neither are contributing to "culture". WAH was made to highlight all the women who DO contribute to culture. Why the fuck would we point out those that don't?

Within this blog I don't overlook traditional female attributes, if anything I welcome them. As much as I wanna have a great career and take over the world I wanna have babies and be a fucking houswife, its in my genes and I'm not trying to fight that! One of my first posts for WAH was how to cook a perfect roast dinner so nuff said...I suggest HYB actually read WAH before attempting to slay it...

Oh, how could i forget the most retarded statement that

"the initials WAH stand for We Ain’t Hoes, which is a barefaced lie as it is made entirely by women. It’s like calling Hurtyoubad We Aren’t Men".

So in your book all Women = Hoes?? I only ask because We Ain't Hoes and We Ain't Men are not technically opposites, so it's not really like calling HurtYouBad, We Aren't Men, is it my dear? It would be more like calling HYB, We Aren't Dicks...

ahahaha... besides the obvious ridiculosity of mr. mister's post on us members of the fairer sex, at least now we can gladly open the doors of dialogue and acknowledge that this kind of attitude is actually quite common in both the Hip Hop/Streetwear cultures. Wonderful! Fabulous! Get at us fellas... let's go heavy. We AIN'T Hoes... and we ain't never Scurred!

Its amazing to see how the lesser mind would try to devalue women by an attempt to defend a culture that we embraced and created another genre for. Yes, a women's body is suited for carrying a child (because its not a woman who makes the seeds) but it only means we are born with certain characteristics that define our strengths intellectually, emotionally and willing to adapt to various cultures. But yet again it was a woman that created the imbecile that wrote that ignorant bullshit.

"Someone told me it had loads of things about shoes on it, which would make sense."

Ugh. Who is this patronising git and has he even bothered to read this blog?!! If he had, he'd obviously realise that yes, shoes are a hot topic of discussion every now and then, but then so is art, fashion, music etc... All 'credible' posting topics, surely?

The reason Wahappenings is so popular is because the posts on here are by intelligent, culturally-savvy and fucking hilarious women who out-write nearly every other "hip-hop culture" blogger out there.

That some dude would feel the need to attack it in such a cowardly (not to mention completely fucking incoherent!) manner is just kinda pathetic, really...

josephine said...

you know what? we don't have even have to dignify that shit with a response. the first two lines of his laughable blog alone clearly show that he is a first degree cunt who has no fucking idea what he's talking about. dick.

SHAR WAH! said...

i know it didn't dignify a response but my grandaddy taught me to never sit back and take any shit knowingly...don't talk shit about me if you ain't gonna ask me my motives directly

josephine said...

...and you were totally right to bring it to our attention. it really pissed me off when i read it but then i realised that he was chatting absolute shit. plus 'wah' smashes their blog to pieces!!! when the haterz start coming out of the woodwork, you know you're doing something right!

and the post below it was about an artist called Rape! fun times.

Damn I can't believe someone actually took a gingerprince post seriously! It is pretty obvious he is on a wind-up and piss-take all that time. He is like the resident HYB troll.

thats funny cos at the moment you all sound EXACTLY like Daily Mail readers complaining about Brass Eye......

josephine said...

oh really? i thought i sounded like a girl calling a guy a dick. maybe an ironic and 'witty' one, but a dick nonetheless.

josephine said...

no, actually, i've changed my mind. just a dick.

The only time gingerprince has listened to hiphop is when he was chagnong stations on the radio and heard Westwood by accident!

Don't take one person's stupid comment and use it to label the whole body of male graffiti writers as "sensitive, moany, self-righteous, pseudo-philosophical" because whilst obviously some are by the same token most aren't.

josephine said...

okay, okay...let's wrap this shit up now. it's carnival weekend...go and make your kanye-style sunglasses and get out and get lean!!! xxx

The real problem here is that some of the chicks on here come like Bounty's.

That's the real issue.

Rep your heritage.

Women should just know their role.

All this we're "powerful independent women" talk is crap.

Women like that don't get laid or have kids.

Get your priorities correct.

SHAR WAH! said...

hahahaha! thats all i can say in response to "powerful women don't get laid" little do you know anon, little do you know...

What you a slag or something Shar Wah?

SHAR WAH! said...

nigga please! i'm not 17 y'know. some ANONYMOUS dick on the net calling me a slag is the least most inventive way to piss me off.

DIANNE said...

i'm a little late here but lets not play the whole anonymous thing. shit lags and gets a little childish in here and i think this whole comment arguments going on is quite non-sense. pay no mind to that blog. its just one man being quite narrow minded (in my opinion) of what he feels a woman's role is. it's not the 1920's anymore you know. but you have all the rights to express your own opinion. after all, that's what blogs are really about and its the beauty of it. not everyone is gonna love wah and what we do but that's life. pay no mind ladies and fellas don't call a girl a hoe if you've never even seen her before. you're right that by nature, a woman's priority is to bear a child so please be aware and respect the fact that the sex that you are calling hoes are the ones that created you and will be creating your seeds. THE TWO CAN'T EXIST OR CREATE WITHOUT ONE ANOTHER SO RESPECT RESPECT RESPECT IS A VERY IMPORTANT ASPECT FOR US TO BE ABLE TO CO-EXIST.

DAAAYYMN!!!
what is this blog wars???
who cares? i sure bloody dont!
What Dianne has said is the ultimate truth…
if a guy wants to brand his mummy, grandmummy, sister, aunt, wife, girl...or whatever a hoe, LET HIM, it’s his problem (especially if he don’t wanna show his face or give us a real name)! i feel sorry for him if anything.
if this was a joke, then I’m glad you've amused yourself and maybe some others for a breif period, but its understandable that if you've worked hard for something like WAH you’re gonna wanna stand up for it.
For those who wanna go on and comment like this ain’t a joke….show your face (you’re meant to have balls aren’t ya????)
And to the dude or dudette that’s tryna call some of us “BOUNTY’S” do you KNOW any of us??? Please explain…(but only if you have the balls to show your face :)
