    I really feel as though the putting the word rape next to his name is beyond irresponsible. As I stated in my blog, those that I call the “Vagina Bullies” are so quick to point out the “over the line” statements and assumptions of men as sick but refuse to recognize the actions and behaviors of the women. No woman deserves to be violated. But to act as if the woman’s actions in the song does not convey a thought of her wanting to engage, is pure idiocy. To grab a man’s genitals and not expect him to think that she is not interested in sex is naïve. Maybe that is what most women do, go around grabbing genitals and then engage in conversation about world affairs before heading to go home. How is that behavior acceptable? How is anyone able to dismiss this? They cannot, but the “vagina bullies” do and feel that women can do and say whatever they want to any man and not expect him to ASSUME there may be some action later. Now, if she decides not to have sexual relations that is her right and he is to abide. But this song is not talking about holding a woman down and raping her while screaming no, he is merely engaging in conversation, while she is groping him. Does this not raise eyebrows on her part, and how does his words get more attention? This attack on him is beyond irresponsible.

    Thicke has been around for a number of yrs. It's kinda sad that he's only now getting attn. for having sexist lyrics to one of his songs. Also, there is NO SUCH THING as a "harmless" song. Every song has meaning w/ it's intended for good or bad.
