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

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.

You seem to have missed my point: don't use the word "rape" as slang/as a metaphor for something else. Doing so trivializes actual rape and the suffering of women who have been sexually assaulted. More here.

OK. Now I see where you're coming from. Touché. Of course, I didn't mean to trivialize sexual abuse. I think I made that quite clear in my other comments here. So let me rephrase it: Stop using the English language to spread your intellectual BS. That better?
PS: And your link doesn't work.
