"Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke

Okay so apologies if folks here have already discussed this, but the "Blurred Lines" controversy has come to my attention only recently...

The song is catchy as hell and I don't see anything obviously problematic in the lyrics (feel free to point stuff out to me, I haven't done a close reading or anything). The video starts to tread in questionable territory (naked women as props-ish stuff) but doesn't seem that unusual, and mostly I honestly found it kind of lighthearted and playful-sexy. So...is it just the Robin Thicke quotes we're reacting to? I mean what he said is SUPER fucked up. But are people having problems with the song itself? Basically — am I being a bad feminist and missing something obvious?
