Hip-hop’s troubled view of Bisexuality (Clutch Magazine)


Thanks to Leslie Patterson for perfectly summing up my feelings about hip-hop’s portrayal of bisexuality. The video and song for Usher’s “Lil’ Freak” feat Nicki Minaj enforce the idea that 1) Bisexual women are promiscuous, 2) Are the gateways to threesomes for men and 3) Can call on their interest in women on a man’s command. It appears that the the average urban man still can’t understand the idea of a woman’s sexuality being independent of their own desires or perceptions.
