Feminist Rapper: This is What A Feminist Looks Like

Time for the third and final installment of Feminist Rapper! Watch as Jenny Hagel's feminist rapper convinces her mugger that feminists shouldn't fight feminists. (Trigger Warning: There is a mugging scene at gunpoint.)

I know that some of you have commented in previous posts that you don't like "Feminist Rapper" for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that the Feminist Rapper is a privileged white lady. Point taken, but this video series is still funny, and even though there are tons of great feminist rappers out there we can always use a few more. Thanks for laughs (and the raps), Feminist Rapper.

Love what you're reading here? Then you'll love Bitch magazine. The reviews are snappy, the analysis in-depth, the writers are downright sharp, and the illustrations so often belong in a frame that you'll have to move over other artwork.

If you don't have a subscription to our award-winning 80-page quarterly magazine, it's definitely time to start one.

Lyrical rhymes that link perverted and subverted?!?! This web series is awesome!

Totally.

Any rap that name drops Judith Butler has got my vote. I love Feminist Rapper!

yeah, it's almost as if it's

yeah, it's almost as if it's saying that feminism isn't actually worthwhile because even after the (not really) compelling arguments given, she still gets ridiculed.

Feminist rapper (aka privileged white lady) is saying : "Feminists shouldn't fight feminists"?
Privileged white lady is too busy basking in her whiteness to notice how she is an oppressor herself. No wonder she's so happy...ignorance is bliss.
Here's an idea, how about a video where she goes beyond her ignorance and tackles the issue of racism. Let's see her do something constructive for a 'change.'

I was going to disagree with

I was going to disagree with you because... well, at least she's trying? Is it better than nothing?
but the more i think about it the more i think she should have done it more sensitively. It's actually quite tasteless, and not even really that clever as a whole, aside from a few lines.

GO GIRL!
