Apparently women are appalled at the lyrics of the song "I Poker Her Face" "Maker Her Say". Yes indeed, this comes as a schocker to almost no one. The song is blatantly causing shame to women, but I still can't get it out of my head. The author of the essay entitled "Maker Her Say (Poke Her Face): Un-Conscious Hip Hop, Oral Rape and Silencing of Women" is Jennifer McLune. She writes a multiple page essay on the disgrace this song brings to women, and mankind. The ideas expressed in the essay tear apart Kanye West, Common, and especially Kid Cudi. I love Kid Cudi, others obviosuly are turned off by his songs. Here is an expert from Jennifer McLune's essay. She grabs quotes from poets, such as Kenneth Carrol. She dis-agrees with Carrol's quote and even goes as far as saying "Carroll makes it sound as though he’s somehow privy to a special knowledge of the decent human being Common supposedly is deep inside".  Cudi has great music, and these kinds of songs will always spark drama. 

"As a female listener, one willing to allow herself to really hear this song’s words and take them to heart, the message was painfully clear: women like d- - k; we like it violently shoved in our faces, and, according to Common at least,

Having to deal with this type of pure, unmitigated misogyny, and needing to think about it for an extended period of time in order to write about it made the completion of this piece extremely difficult. I enlisted the help of another radical feminist, Stephanie Cleveland, whose support and contributions in editing and writing spared me the ordeal of having to complete this essay all alone.

When the song “I Poke Her Face” was first brought to my attention, I thought that, if nothing else, at least Common’s “consciousness pimping” would finally being exposed. I imagined the singer would no longer be able to hide behind what we his listening public have so long pretended he’s about; this songs lyrics seemed to make it painfully clear who Common really is, and has in fact always been: a consciousness pimp who likes and expects to get my d- -k sucked by “stripper bitches,” just like any other woman-hating guy. Common seemed to be indisputably articulating that sentiment in the song, but leave it to one of his male fans, DC area poet and activistKenneth Carroll, to dissent with a comment that is not only unoriginal, but also does exactly what Common and Kanye must have banked on—it demonstrates how their fans will dismiss any song, even one this overtly hateful, as a mere “inconsistency” in their struggle to be better men, certainly not an overt manifestations of the sadistic, full-blown misogynist these men really and truly are.
