    I want to clarify my argument regarding coercion since a lot of people don't think her performance constitutes anything directly or tangentially related to the term. I'm not saying that her body movements during the performance were a manifestation of any type of coercion because indeed she did appear to be doing them of her own free will and volition. The coercion part of it all pertains to the lyrics of the song, which includes wording like "I know you want it." (This phrase has long since been a signifier/allusion to rape.)
