On Thursday, August 6th, Cardi B dropped her brand new music video featuring Megan Thee Stallion WAP. In less than a week, the video already has over 76 million views on YouTube. The song is about women getting laid, and although it’s massively popular, conservatives like Ben Shapiro had a problem with it.

I did a poll over on Instagram asking if you all wanted me to cover this topic, and it was an overwhelming yes. And btw, if you’re not yet, follow me on Instagram @TheRewiredSoul because I love interacting with all of you and posting polls to get ideas for upcoming topics.

Personally, growing up with 90s R&B, which later turned into people like Lil Jon and the Yin Yang Twins talking about their exploits, I think it’s about time female sexuality gets a bit more normalized. As a progressive who grew up here in Las Vegas around plenty of sex workers, in my humble opinion, if you’re a woman who wants to get yours, do you, boo.

I’m not alone either. There’s been a lot of talk about the double standard between male and female promiscuity for years, but I feel the majority of liberals and progressives are all about women doing their thing. On the conservative side of the aisle, things are a little bit different.

For those of you who don’t know, Ben Shapiro is a prominent commentator in the conservative community who is held on a pedestal as one of their most “intellectual” speakers. In recent weeks, he’s been talked about quite a bit and not just for his comments on the new music video, but for his ignorant statements about racism and discrimination. Recently, he was on the Joe Rogan show being exhibiting his lack of competence when it comes to the fact that racial disparities still exist in 2020.

If you want to watch an excellent video on this specific subject, I highly recommend you check out the recent video from Some More News titled How Ben Shapiro Pretends Nothing Can be Done About Systemic Racism.

But today, we won’t be talking about Ben Shapiro pretending systemic racism doesn’t exist. We’re going to discuss his commentary on the new track WAP. The other day, he went viral for discussing the song while reading the lyrics, which became an instant meme.
