"Shut girl, shut your lips do the Hellen Keller and talk with your hips"

Not very many things offend me, but I think this song is horrible. Well, it actually has a catchy tune, but that line is really offensive. Do you agree? My husband tells me to lighten up.

  • I heard that song the other day and thought "WTF?" And as far as I know, I have never heard of Hellen Keller talking with her hips. Yes, I find very offensive.

  • It is totally offensive. Helen Keller was a brilliant woman who conquered two disabilities in a time when most disabled people were put away in mental institutions. Furthermore, it implies that the disabled are not worth anything other than sex!

     My only question is this, is your husband normally this insensitive? Or is he just ignorant of who Helen Keller was.

  • its rude. it shouldnt be offensive to you, but i do think he's being immature thinking its humorous. Even if Helen herself could hear that, she'd be offended.

  • No my husband is not insensitive, he just believes it's a song and a song is a song, I guess.
