Lil B Vigilant In His Support Of Wendy Davis & Women's Rights

Lil B criticizes male politicians supportive of Texas Senate Bill Five in a new, op-ed piece.

Although Berkeley, California artist Lil B is currently touring overseas, the rapper, who is affectionately known to fans as TheBased God, has managed to keep himself abreast of current events taking place here in the United States.

Earlier in the week, the rapper may have taken some aback as he gave a personal “shout out” to politician Wendy Davis and expressed his support for women’s rights via Twitter. Davis made headlines this week when she held a filibuster to block a legislation that would enact strict abortion regulations in Texas.

On top of his various Tweets, Lil B also penned an op-ed piece for Rolling Stone. In his editorial, the rapper questioned why men should have the ability to make decisions concerning women.

“I support women's rights,” Lil B revealed. “I don't talk about it a lot, but it's definitely something that hits close to home for me. I support Wendy Davis, and I stand with her. When politicians try to restrict women's rights, it hurts. These things should be up to women. There are a lot of different situations where pregnancy comes about – as a man, it's hard for me to make a decision on that. It's up to a woman how she wants to bring a child into the world, or if she wants to continue with her life and mature more and bring a child in when she's ready.”

Lil B again praised Davis for choosing to speak out and even welcomed the thought of a female president.

“Wendy Davis matters. She's a woman fighting for what's right. A lot of people aren't agreeing with her; she's doing something that's out of the norm,” said Lil B. “A lot of people who do agree are scared to speak, or they're not in a position to be heard. So I definitely respect Ms. Davis for planting new seeds for women's rights. I'm trying to do that on my level, too. I think women are going to keep excelling. We're going to have a woman president.”
