The Black Eyed Peas song "My Humps" is a modern anthem about a woman's right to own her hotness, that is: her body and sex appeal. It's a refreshing message - and well-timed - when you condsider these are dark times for women's rights in the world. Never in recent times have women been so unfairly treated for their attractiveness as they are today: parents murdering their daughters for flirting with boys, women's rights activists imprisoned and executed for defending women's right to go out in public, teenage girls punished for being raped while the rapists go free, etc. Unfortunately a song like "My Humps" cannot do much against this trend since it's not very philosophical, and like it or not, it is philosophy and its ideas that are put into laws and shape history. In this case, the philosophy hinted at in the song but never made explicit is the idea that force must never be used in the realm of love. In fact, mankind's history of civilization is a slow process of systematically learning to use reason over force in the 3 main social areas of human life: politics, morality, and love. In politics people have gradually learned to cooperate economically rather than resort to war. In ethics people have generally learned to work for a living and produce values rather than simply steal what they want and need. However, in the area of love force still looms heavily and darkly. We have not yet learned to employ romance over force. If we are to have love in our lives we must learn to never force women in or out of sex against their will. We must banish force (with laws if necessary) from politics, morality and love if we humans are ever to be completely civilized.
