Arama They Didn't

When racism doesn't cut it anymore...you guessed it: a Jin post



The brilliant songwriter and all-around nice guy, Jin Akanishi is about to launch his new album, Japonicana. Some netizens have already gotten their hands on a digital copy and thus on the lyrics of his songs. One in particular is very interesting:

That's what she said - lyrics
edit: Please note that the lyrics can be triggering for people who have experienced sexual violation in any way. Also note that due to the heated discussions a lot of the comments will be triggering as well and none carry warning labels.


Word + Word = Neologism
Titty + Sexy = Tixy
Smile + Fake = Smike
Show + Romance = Showmance
Hot + Witch = Hotch
Slut + Bitch = Slutch
Japanese + English = Japanglish
Courage + Liquid = Swag Juice

Taking over
Taking over

I'm thirsty - That's what she said
I can't drink this - That's what she said
This is too much - That's what she said
It's huge - That's what she said
This tastes funny - That's what she said
My throat hurts - That's what she said
I feel so good - That's what she said
I need this
Chug it

Swallow swallow swallow swallow
Swallow swallow swallow swallow
Chug it
Swallow swallow swallow swallow
Swallow swallow swallow swallow

Down up down up down up down down up up
Down up down up down up down down up up

Super + Clever = Slever
Stupid + Kid = Stukid
Wow + Damn = Wamn
Mom + Pop = I'm sorry
Fine + Chick = Fick
Dumb + Girl = Durl
Blackout + Drunk = Blunk
You + Me = Sex

I'm thirsty - That's what she said
I can't drink this - That's what she said
This is too much - That's what she said
It's huge - That's what she said
This tastes funny - That's what she said
My throat hurts - That's what she said
I feel so good - That's what she said
I need this
Chug it

Swallow swallow swallow swallow
Swallow swallow swallow swallow
Chug it
Swallow swallow swallow swallow
Swallow swallow swallow swallow

To the right, to the left, to the left, to the left
Down up down up down up down down up up
Down up down up down up down down up up

(repeat last 3 verses)


So what does it mean? Judge for yourself. The fact that Jin hasn't put one proper sentence in the entire song certainly leaves something for the imagination. It's hard not to think of date rape and misogynism when he uses such classy lines like "Slut + Bitch = Slutch", "I can't drink this", "This tastes funny". How much his fans want to support such a message remains to be seen. Japonicana comes out on March 6th and will be available on itunes and several amazon stores.

juts so we're clear..
Do you mean to say that people who disagree with this song and think it's stupid and/or mysogynistic are 'haterz'?
yokostan 4th-Mar-2012 01:26 pm (UTC)
Then it's best to look up "misogyny" and add in "date rape" while you're at it.
Then let's have another exchange of opinions regarding the lyrics.

When you appear to make lyrics about a woman doing something she doesn't want to do and that thing is sexual, than you are always talking about rape. End of story.
benihime99 4th-Mar-2012 02:15 pm (UTC)
I suggest you add "rape culture" to the list provided by yokostan

lol, go away.
benihime99 Re: OPPA DIDN'T MEAN IT.4th-Mar-2012 12:54 pm (UTC)
There's so many "oppa didn't mean it" in the post
smh
atarashiiyoake Re: OPPA DIDN'T MEAN IT.4th-Mar-2012 12:57 pm (UTC)
IKR, what the hell?

Or all these 'But there's worse stuff out there!' or 'He's written better songs too!'. How is that even relevant right now?
kiminikaeru Re: OPPA DIDN'T MEAN IT.4th-Mar-2012 12:58 pm (UTC)
oniichan didn't mean it
atarashiiyoake Re: OPPA DIDN'T MEAN IT.4th-Mar-2012 01:13 pm (UTC)
Subtle difference.
kiminikaeru 4th-Mar-2012 12:59 pm (UTC)
thanks for clarifying that you are delusional and stupid
atarashiiyoake 4th-Mar-2012 01:14 pm (UTC)
Only cos you're telling us we can't be offended by something really offensive.
kiminikaeru 4th-Mar-2012 02:29 pm (UTC)
lol uhm you're the one who thinks that misogynism is tolerable and that people who think it's wrong are HATERZ
gloris 4th-Mar-2012 01:14 pm (UTC)
Even if there are worst lyrics out there doesn't makes it OK for Akanishi to write and sing one.
calcetinita 4th-Mar-2012 04:40 pm (UTC)
If you know the definition of respect, you won't defend this song. It's as simple as that.
singlouder 4th-Mar-2012 05:32 pm (UTC)
You've never once attempted to explain your opinion. All you've done since your original post is whine about how persecuted you are because people don't agree with you. Does that deserve respect? You can have whatever opinion you want as long as you can BACK IT UP with logic, which you've never even attempted to do that in these comments. You keep hiding beind "But it's my /opinion/." So? What went into the formulation of that opinion? Why don't you explain to the people who are "attacking" you what validates your opinion and makes it worthy of respect? Can you do that?

I just want to encourage you to take time to question things and think things through so that you can explain where you're coming from when people question you rather than just whining because people dared to question you. You don't think that this is misogynistic or offensive. Why? "Because I just don't" or "Because that's my opinion" is a cop-out. Other people DO think that this is misogynistic and offensive. Why? "Because they're just haters" is a cop-out. Don't you think it will help your own position to understand the other side of the issue rather than just writing it off?

shut up

I know, right? Misogyny and rape culture are just so hilarious.

If thinking that way makes me a hater, me and the rest of the more rational people in arama will be chilling at the left. Assholes can remain in their little corner on the right.
