"Literally, I Can't" Is Undoubtedly Party Rock Records' Most Offensive Anthem

I think most people would agree that stereotypes have their place in pop culture, such as when they take on the shape of a parody or serve some type of comedic purpose. That being said, the execution and delivery of borderline offensive material is crucial to how is received. We're all familiar with the stereotypes of college aged men and women that belong to greek organizations and we all know that there are some girls out there that "literally cannot" all the time and yes, sometimes it's funny. The music video for Play-N-Skillz' "Literally I Can't" ft. Redfoo, Lil Jon and Enertia McFly on the other hand, isn't very funny at all. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PC52toizz8U] The video was uploaded to the Party Rock Records Youtube channel on October 30, 2014 with this in the message in the description box:

"The #LIC sorority sisters who strictly abide by their "Literally I Can't" mantra reluctantly show up at the #STFU frat house to show face at the hottest party on campus. Unable to resist what the boys have to offer, they're transformed one at a time into girls gone wild until the only one left standing is the uptight president who's forced out of the party."

The video reminded me of all the reasons why I shy away from frat parties and various other male dominated social gatherings. When the "#LIC sorority sisters" aren't being harassed, objectified and heckled with drink offers and requests for "girl-on-girl" action they're being told to "Shut the fuck up" and having their personal space invaded by the "#STFU" frat brothers. It should also be noted that the frat brothers take it upon themselves to separate the sorority sisters from each other and turn each of them into the "girls gone wild" they'd been hoping for. These guys may want to brush up on their current events. Rape culture is a serious issue affecting people all over the world isn't something to be taken lightly or parodied, especially not here in America where rape culture is a growing concern as it pertains to Greek organizations on college and university campuses across the country. Just because a female does not want to have sex with you and declines whatever shot of bottom-shelf liquor you're offering her does not mean that she a bitch; she's just not that into you.
