Discuss: Baby Mamas Music Video
The video is titled Baby Mamas. Because the dancers appear to be wearing wedding rings, one can assume they don’t mean to be invoking the original meaning of the term ‘baby mama’ which refers to an unmarried woman who has given birth.
So, what say the ladies? Does your love of promoting babywearing outweigh any reaction to the sexualization of said activity? I’m not suggesting a woman can’t look pretty while carrying a baby, just that this whole endeavor was in bad taste. For me, the lyrics are at odds with the imagery.
Oh, and what about the fathers? Dads don’t wear babies? Why so sexist? Is it because seeing a guy wearing sexy clothing and engaging in some bumping and grinding while wearing an infant would make you uncomfortable? Double standard?
