“Why can’t we, for once, objectify the men?” asks one of Jennifer Lopez’s besties at the start of her “I Luh Ya Papi” video featuring French Montana.

Sure, there’s probably a valid argument to be had about fighting sexism with its exact opposite, but what’s wrong with having a little bit gender-swapping, feminist fun instead? Besides, RuPaul’s dude-twerking videos for “Peanut Butter” and “Geronimo” were getting lonely all by their guy-objectifying selves…
