The Death of Booty*

We the undersigned are demanding an end to the use of and characterization of women as booty or type of sex objects particularly portrayed in mass media.

We find the use of and characterization of women as sex objects, the spoils of lust and "booty" unacceptable.

We call for an end to the use of any and all language, actions and portrayals that characterize women, particularly black women based primarily on their physical characteristics.

We reject all negative, generalized sexual stereotypes that degrade, dehumanize and devalue the essence of women, particularly black women, in American society but also throughout the world.

We reject present mainstream mass media portrayals, particularly music, that calls on girls and women, especially black girls and women to drop it, bounces it, shake, 'ho' it and encourages listeners, particularly men, to smack it, flip it, rub it, use it, abuse it and to pimp it.

We call for an end to all forms mass media sexism and sexual exploitation, sexual degradation of all kinds in the U.S. and abroad. We characterize this time as the post-sexism era, post-sexual degradation of women era and to this end will not allow ourselves (mothers, daughters, sisters, fathers, sons, brothers) to participate in the circulation and promotion of "booty" in all its forms (past, present and future).
