Mom Horrified By Lil Wayne's Degrading Sex Tune At BET Awards

The organizers of the BET Awards have come under fire for letting Lil Wayne perform his controversial "Every Girl" tune at Sunday's ceremony - backed by a troupe of teenage dancers.Celebrated Columbia University scholar Dr. Janet Taylor has taken aim at BET CEO Debra Lee for allowing the hip-hop star's performance at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium to go uncensored.The mother of four watched the awards show with her daughters and was left horrified when Lil Wayne launched into his "degrading" sex hit during an onstage collaboration with Drake.The track begins with, "I like a long haired thick red bone/Open up her legs then filet Mignon that p---y/Ima get in and on that p---y/If she let me in Ima own that p---y."Dr. Taylor tells MomLogic.com, "I enjoy rap with the exception of rappers who use lyrics to degrade, defame or threaten others... I don't have a problem with Lil Wayne; he is creative and his writing is brilliant at times. However, his song Every Girl is offensive and disturbing. Perhaps they are what our kids are used to. I have teenagers, girls no less, who have heard the song and like it. My problem was the teens who were proudly on stage, shaking their groove thang to this misogynistic, disrespectful song. It was ridiculous. Debra Lee, who is also the mother of two children, should be asking herself who approved this and how these young girls were allowed to be a part of this act."Dr. Taylor adds, "It is time for perspective here. In the minutes that were wasted on stage during this song, almost four women were forcibly raped in the United States. The age group 13-17, that these young dancers belong, include the highest victims of forcible rape, at 32 percent. Why are we, as women and mothers, passively allowing our young girls to be utilized as sexual entertainment? We need to wake up and understand the importance of what we expose our children and teens to."
