Sickening song I heard on the radio

I was going home tonight and had the radio on in my car. I like radio, especially NPR (National Public Radio). I like NPR. It is a good source of lightly-seasoned news and intelligent conversation. Can you tell I feel smrt when I listen to a reasoned and intelligent dialogue? ;-)
I say lightly-seasoned because the news is ever so slightly biased to the left, but in a bipartisan media this is as close to the center as we're going to get.

Anyway, I was going through the different stations when I came across a song I hadn't heard in ages... TLC's Scrubs. Most of you have to have probably heard this song, but I'll comment on it because this is the first time I'm hearing it in ages and because I never thought much of this song before. Essentially, the song is about a man who "don't got no money" and who wants to get with one of the beauties who is singing this song.

A few choice lines...
A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly and is
also known as a buster
always talkin' about what he wants
and just sits on his broke ass
so (no)
I don't want your number
no I don't wanna give you mine
and no I don't wanna meet you nowhere
no I don't want none of your time and no
Chorus:
I don't want no scrub
a scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me
hanging out the passenger side
of his best friend's ride
trying to holler at me (x2)
But a scrub's checkin' me
but his game is kinda weak
and i know that he cannot approach me
cuz I'm lookin' like class and he's looking like trash
can't get wit' a deadbeat ass
So (no)
I don't want your number
no I don't wanna give you mine
and no I don't wanna meet you nowhere
no I don't want none of your time (so no)
Chorus
If you don't have a car and you're walking
Oh yes son I'm talking to you
If you live at home wit' your momma
Oh yes son I'm talking to you
If you have a shorty but you don't show love
Oh yes son I'm talking to you
Wanna get with me with no money, oh nooo
I don't want no scrub
Chorus (until fade)


That last line really made the song for me. Not only is it clear that the bitch only cares about "lookin like class" and not actually being classy, but its a painful reminder of what is really important to the women in our culture. This was a very popular song, and the message must have hit home to the girls it was targeting.

A lot of you might be thinking, "But Pete, we know that money and security is all women want, why do you need to tell us that?"
I'm commenting on this song because no woman - NO WOMAN, period says she wants a man with money, and that's the only quality he needs to have. Somehow its always a "sense of humor" or some other touchy-feely bullshit like that. But what that really means, especially with the more attractive females, is that they fall in love within a framework. If a man has money, is tall enough, has the right color eyes, et cetera, the woman will look further and try to get him to approach her. If he doesn't have the base-level qualities, he can go fuck himself - she will shriek sexual harassment if he approaches her at work, talk to him rudely if he approaches her somewhere else, or will just lead him on with endless posh dinners until he realizes he is being played.

This song is an important reminder of what women are after and why we are refusing to marry. All the while the feminist media is whittling down men's natural urge to find the most attractive and fertile woman to procreate with, they are applauding women's "right" to go after the $$$, screw the personality - I'm protected by the state if we don't get along.

  1. Good piece Pete

    It's ironic that these so-called 'empowered' women demand that they get looked after, yet fail to require that their gender also get a job

    Also, I distinctly recall a backlash song called No Pigeons by the Sporty Thievz, which mocked TLC's original

    And good on them I say !!

  2. That song makes me sick too. With women the trick is never listen to what they say but look at what they do!

  3. No doubt another slam on so called 'slacker men' for not unquestioningly genuflecting at the altar of the divine feminine.

    There's another song I heard recently called 'My Humps' by some group called the Black Eyed Peas that's also quite misandric.

  4. Thanks for that song, Fred. I read through the lyrics and darn if it isn't touching! LOL

    I think the reason these ho's (that's what they are, pure and simple) take such pains to completely describe this mythical "scrub" character is so that every man will listen to the laundry list of complaints and think, "Well, that isn't me, so I guess I better rail against these scrubbish characters with these fine women, who deserve better. Someone like Me."

    Whereas every woman who listens to it finds something that identifies the man she is thinking of as a scrub.

    That's why the anti-male attitude has gone so far - men subconsciously exclude themselves from the caricature of the heartless cruel man the feminists paint, and the feminists know that bit by bit, they are chipping away at whatever makes a man male, chipping away at the gender identity and sexuality of men.
