The two statements are both true and women in hip hop videos are shown as objects.  The first statement describes the girls as "sexual playthings" this gives a very negative view of the girls in videos but does make a point the girls are shown as items with no personality or individuality. in videos such as "blurred lines" girls are shown dancing for the men and minors next to the artists. The next statement says that the videos give men the impression that women are nothing more than "sex "objects waiting to be used, I don't think that any man knows a women who acts like a video girl. The videos do give a wrong perception of women but men realise they are nothing like real women. the third statement is correct in saying that women are displayed falsely in other media forms, the hip hop's vision of women is not unique and movies sometimes show women as sex objects.

hip hop videos are the worse though because they only show one type of women and give the girls no identity. The videos are wrong when they only show women with large breasts because most women don't have large features and dance around naked. Media uses these stereotypes to increase popularity in adverts, films and television programmes but some do give the girls identity while hip hop does not. "the only version of women available " means the stereotype gives men the impression that all women have large breasts when they do not. The girls in the videos make girls feel unwanted by men because they don't have large bums and breasts to attract men. to conclude the statement are correct but do exaggerate some aspects like the effect the videos have on men.

does hip hop givebthe wrong impression

hip hop videos show men having power over women and owning expensive cars and lots if money. this stereotype is wrong and normal men don't have fast cars and big jewellery yet hip hop make people believe that you need these things to be a real man. Hip hop videos show men having control over women and women almost worshipping the men. The videos all have the same things such as men in fast cars with jewellery and dominating the women and other men giving the viewer the impression that you need to be like this to be a real man.  If men really treated women as they do in the videos then there would nether be any real relationships. The videos impose if you are not like this you are weak and a wimp this makes men feel bad because they don't control women and have fast cars.The videos clearly display and unhealthy take on manhood and power over the opposite sex.

 The girls in the video are shown having thin bodies and large breasts which implies that all women should have perfect bodies. the men in the videos only ever look at these girls so girls watching the video will feel that men wouldn't be interested in them. the majority of the world don't have fast cars and lots of girls so the videos are an unrealistic view of masculinity. The artists make their videos like this to make them feel like real men and want viewers to envy their wealth and lifestyle. The girls in the videos are only actresses and models they don't really worship the men in the videos. To conclude the hip hop scene is a very unhealthy and unrealistic view on manhood these videos are wrong and give a negative output. I think these videos should be more realistic and give viewers  better role models.
