In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy"

In the Phrase
In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy
it represents a typical women in most music videos to the present day.
A lot the time the women in these videos are treated as sex slaves by the artist, In videos like Candy shop you see a number of women dressed in Thongs and Bra's trying to get with the artist in a provocative manor. The women in videos are usually thrown out the way for the main girl to be shown, this also places the other women as unwanted and basically have no meaning or identity to the video, rendering them use less,thus leaving them only as eye candy.
The main girl will then be shown in the video with the artist the majority of the time. This would include explicit scenes showing the girl dancing on the artist or touching him in a sexual way. 

In these videos Men are the dominating gender showing the women weak and worthless.
Overall I believe that the way women are treated in these videos is vulgar and unpleasant to both them and the viewer.

Sorry if the Quantity of this isn't the most but i didn't see there would be anything left to right.




You have a number of good points here and have chosen your examples well, but you don't really have any specific examples to back up your points made.

T: Find specific examples and apply them to your chosen videos to help you fully explain your points.
