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.
