Miley Cyrus Is A  Slut  And Poor Robin Thicke Is Just A Victimized Dude   Blurred Lines  Indeed miley1 133x200 jpgI’m outraged. I’m outraged because the majority of the press overage following Robin Thicke‘s And Miley Cyrus‘ performance of Thicke’s “Song of the summer” Blurred Lines is focusing on what a “ratchet ‘ho” 20-year-old Miley Cyrus is, for her dancing, for her costuming, for her giant cartoon foam finger that she used to manipulate both her and Thicke’s genital regions, for her tongue that she lolled out of her mouth lewdly and provocatively. You guys, people did NOT like her dancing! Her singing! Her grinding! People did not like any aspect of her sexuality that she choose to display during her Sunday night performance and there is much scowling and brow furrowing and hand wringing and body shaming and good old fashioned slut shaming to be done.

Even by Thicke’s own mother. From Yahoo:

“I just keep thinking of her mother and father watching this. Oh, Lord, have mercy. … I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son. The problem is now I can never ‘unsee’ it.”

While she can’t take back what she witnessed, the “Blurred Lines” singer’s mom did manage to mention her favorite — and least favorite — parts of the performance.

“Him? Loved it. I love that suit, the black and white suit. I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do. I just don’t understand. I think she’s misbegotten in this attempt of hers,” Loring said. “And I think it was not beneficial.”

She basically accuses 20-year-old Miley of molesting her 36-year-old married, father of one son. Because Thicke’s reaction to Miley rubbing her ass all over him was to stop the show and exclaim:

Miley, this is inappropriate! Kids may be watching! You are a beautiful young talented girl and all though it’s fantastic that you are exploring your sexuality it may be better suited to someone your own age and I have a bad feeling people will be disappointed in your performance so why don’t you and your giant foam cartoon finger go put on a nice blouse and sing the song without all of the porno theatrics?

Yeah, right. I suppose it’s all blurred lines when it comes to sexuality and young girls and whether or not it’s appropriate for older men to lean back and enjoy it while they are sliding all over them.

This performance did not come as some shocker to Thicke or any of the other fully formed adult people involved in the VMA rehearsal process, because according to TMZ, even his won wife was cool with it:

We’re told Paula knew the performance wasn’t gonna be G-Rated because there were “tons of rehearsals” before the show … and there were no surprises during the performance.

And yet everyone is hell-bent on blaming Miley for all of this. I don’t know what geniuses you guys were at age 20, but speaking for myself I was not the best at considering how my actions may or may not affect my reality the next morning.

There have been a lot of valid arguments made against Miley and her cultural appropriation. There have been a lot of valid arguments made against Thicke and his song of the summer and what it saying regarding the blurred lines of consent and whether or not it contributes to a mindset of rape culture. There have been a lot of valid criticisms of the quality of her singing during the performance. But in the aftermath of the VMAs, with all of the hand-wringing over Miley and her sexuality, I haven’t seen anyone taking Thicke to task for any of it. And not shockingly, reports are all ready surfacing that the Canadian singer is upset with Miley as well:

“Robin thought it would be fun to include Miley, but he didn’t realize how much she would overshadow him. This was his big night and big performance,” one source tells Us of Thicke, who broke out in a big way this year with “Blurred Lines.” Continued the source: “I don’t think he would have done it knowing what it ended up like.”

So just to recap here, a young girl gives a highly sexualized performance and she is called a slut and a ‘ho all over the place, and her duet partner comes out of it unscathed with even his mother blaming the girl (Rather than the producers of the show or even her own son) and very little of the vitriol directed at him. Blurred lines, indeed.
