Recently I got to thinking...2008 has been a historical year for women in the political race for president and vice president. We've come a long way, baby!
But still, it seems in some arenas women have got a long way to go. After reviewing the 2008 TV season, I experienced a mound of frustration. Thus, I decided to write down a rap. Yes, a rap. I, Meg, am an excellent rapper.
Warning: the following could cause laughter or disgust or neither.
What Women Want
Women’s fight for e-quality
Has come pretty far.
We can get better-paying jobs.
Can drink a-lone in a bar.
We got the right to ed-u-cation, a loan, a bank note
Got the right to smoke in public
The right to cast a vote.
But for true e-qual-ity,
We must continue with the fight
Some things that we need
Are completely out of sight
Let’s all take a moment
To stop and take some stock
'Cause on TV and the movies
It's nothing but a crock.
Guys get their clea-vage on every TV show.
Women’s full frontal nudity on H-BO.
All we get-is Colin Farrell’s chest.
The camera scans to his navel, then stops at the rest.
Guys got Pa-ris Hilton, and Pamela Anderson's tits.
But all we get to see -- the be-hind of Brad Pitt.
We want George Cloo-ney, Mc-Dreamy, Johnny Depp.
Just let see us the parts for which we have wept.
It's just a crock.
No way a shock.
Show us some...thing hot.
This tiny little thing, seems hol-i-er than thou.
In terms of e-qual-i-ty, we women cry foul.
Show us this sa-cred thing. How hard could it be?
It’s what we women want. And our gay bros agree!
We want An-ton-io Banderas, did I mention Johnny Depp?
This see-through double-standard is too hard to accept.
To change to equal treatment, it won’t take no new laws
Just some Hollywood producers who’ve got some bigger BALLS.
It's just a crock.
Undo the lock.
It's what we want.
Tick tock, tick tock...
