Yea I need someone to explain I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_ to me, too. I'm basic.

I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_
pretty much "LOL". I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_ is the sound you make when you laugh without opening your mouth or making any facial expressions.

I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_ she dragged ha in the second episode as if Tamisha didnt have enough on her plate as it already is.

he/him
What has happened to her?

The best music of her career in almost a decade with her being probably, as she's made us aware, the healthiest physically and mentally she's been ever after a traumatic couple of years?

What year are you living in? A straight white male is as likely to give her a good review as anyone else. Attitudes have changed in regards to pop music. Those middle-aged guys are mostly "poptimists" now, the boomers are retiring, and a lot of writers from our/my generation (well, the mid-late 20s) were never afraid of pop music. Pitchfork was already feeding us "Toxic," Blackout, Mariah, Madonna, Beyonce, and Rihanna by the time people my age were in high school.

Eh... this is overly-simplifying. There's a lot of posturing and performing that one has to do to been seen in a certain way. There's a reason why Britney has never gotten critical praise for her work. Blackout has fantastic reviews - just nearly none of them praise her, but simply call her a perfect palette for producers to use, pushing the idea that the music is often a happy accident that falls in Britney's hands.

It has nothing to do with pop music and more the issue of women seen as creators of pop music and being given the credit for their creations. Grimes, Lady Gaga, and other have continued to talk about the issues they face in being seen at the same level as creators as their peers. The idea that male critics liking female pop music probably suggests/supports they have no inherent biases against female creators feels like... a misfire. But maybe I'm wrong - I hope Britney gets credit for her work. It's not just enough recognize that it's good pop music - it's good pop music because Britney made and is performing it, or that the songs are excellently written because Britney or another female songwriter have crafted them.

And strangely, it's allowed, while saying "laugh out loud" is not. Not that I care. I just find it strange. It definitely felt very unfair when I got banned for saying "laugh out loud" but people do the "I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_" thing all the time and it's essentially the exact same thing.
 
Have you ever met a straight white male? Jesus. This site sometimes.

Not sure what white has to do with it, but most of my friends are straight men. It's definitely a thing that some guys can't admit they like pop music. I would say that trend has sort of blown over now and no one really cares what you like. One of my two best friends is a straight male who likes Robyn and can get into some Britney songs.

But yeah there are definitely guys with insecurity issues who feel admitting they like pop is feminine (and thus, that being feminine is bad.)

Maybe it's from living in San Francisco where people are really open minded, but I've definitely noticed an uptick in the amount of straight men who are comfortable admitting they like pop music.
 
Straight white men are responsible for writing and producing the majority of Britney's catalogue of hits, including most of the "sensual sexy musics" that "get you in that zone". If acknowledging that #makesme Breitbart, then so be it.
