There's a lot of female objectification though, like yesterday's skinny jeans post.

It's not like males (or gays or asians or anyone else) are spared, though.  Even that post talks about male skinny jeans.  It may be from a male perspective, but as a female I agree  that skinny jeans are horrible on 99% of the people who wear them.

True enough.  At any rate, that blog is hilarious.  After reading it, I now find stuffwhitepeoplelike rather boring.

I haven't read stuff white people like in months, partially because of this blog.  Though I still like my "pregnancy tops".

Frankly, were I deciding to be offended, it would probably be the rampant heteronormativity that got me, not the female objectification.

I concur.  I think this album warrants a resurrection of the Hip Hop thread!
