F-bombs for feminisms is KINDA okay, I guess, when Sarah Silverman does it, or maybe when some other intelligent clever adult does it for wit purposes, but when little KIDS are involved and it’s Princesses Plus Profanity, or Toddlers in Tiaras touting a train-load of “tainted” cuss words, WHAT the F is going on?
I’m talking about FCKH8’s video about raising awareness on pay inequality and violence towards women, and just downright SEXISM and their new video where they use little girls dressed as princesses to state their case. I GUESS the pronunciation of the name of their organization is “F*CK HATE.” Here’s the video in question:
And hello — here’s the transcript so you can decide what the F is going on: manipulation of young actors or a novel idea to bring awareness to a cause? I don’t know about you, but I haven’t gotten the heebie jeebies this much since watching a scene from Natural Born Killers with a child actor.
By now you know I’m snarky, so see my comments below in BLUE.
WHAT THE FUCK, I’m not the fucking HELPLESS PAH-RINCESS in distress. (Who SAID you were? SOCIETY? Disney? Then take the fucking dress off, kid.)
I’m pretty FUCKING powerful and ready for success. (There MIGHT be a more positive way to state this?)
So what is MORE offensive?
A little girl saying FUCK? or the FUCKING unequal and sexist way society treats girls and women? (WHO is treating YOU, unfairly, at this time in your life, right now, except the director and your parents?)
It’s OUR future, so listen up grownups, here’s some words more fucked up than the word FUCK:
Women are paid 23 percent less than men…for the exact same fucking work.
And women who graduate a university with straight A’s get paid as much as men who only got C’s.
So bad grades equal more BANK, just because you’re a BOY?
UM Hello…and HAIL NO (says the black princess — NOT a stereotype, right?)
Pay up motherfucker! I shouldn’t need a penis to get PAID.
(I just saw a little 7 year old say: PAY UP MOTHAH FUCKHA!!)
RAPE AND VIOLENCE
Fucked up fact:
1 out of every 5 women will be sexually assaulted or raped by a man.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, which one of us will it be?
(!) YIKES! Is this even mathematically correct? I get it is done for effect. Poor little girls saying words they don’t know what really mean. Reminds me of the Roman Polanski rape case victim deposition.)
So how many more women have to get knocked down before society stands up and stops it?
Here’s a hot tip:
Stop telling girls how to dress and START Teaching BOYS not to FUCKING rape. (OMG I hope this is not a license to dress like a slut at 7 years old!)
We’re GLAD the women’s right to vote is here, but equality’s next step is walking to the car without fear. (WHAT? Just bring your friend Mister Stun Gun.)
So here’s the TRICKY thing….
PRETTY – it’s a compliment — but here’s how the FOCUS works to girl’s detriment.
Society teaching girls that our bodies, boobs and butts and more important than our brains leads us to thinking our worth comes from our waistline and my ASSpirations in LIFE, should not be worrying about the shape of my ASS.
So FUCK focusing on how I look and give me a book. (Hello? I need a second blog for all I’m seeing here in this copy.)
The continued sexism grows a women’s’ stale face (this is the first adult in the video and you can’t understand what she says so I’m guessing.)
(ANOTHER ADULT) Uhhh, instead of cleaning these girls’ mouths out with soap, (GASP) maybe SOCIETY should clean up IT’s Act.
This is what a feminist looks like – girls just want to have “FUN-demential rights.”
5 dollars from each shirt goes to kick ass charities that are fighting everyday to make the world more
equal for women and girls. (OH, they are using innocent kid’s mouths to sell t0 shirts — I see the light now.)
(LITTLE BOY COMES ON SCREEN WEARING A PRINCESS DRESS) Yo, BRO, when you tell a guy it’s bad to act LIKE A GIRL, it’s because you believe it’s bad to BE a girl. (Honestly? You think because it’s BAD to be a girl or it’s alluding to girl’s inferior athletic ability? I could say “You sew like a BOY” and that doesn’t mean it’s bad to be a boy, it means generally boys don’t sew very well.)
FUCK that sexist shit (says the princess). (OMG.)
Fuck Hate dot com (the name of the company who put this video together.)
I don’t give a FUCK.”
Hmmm…what do YOU think?
I think I’m having a flashback to 20 years ago in film class where I was counting the amount of F words in the film Scarface for Communications class for a purpose I really can’t remember. THIS video is 2.35 minutes long and has 14 instances of the word F -U-C-K….by young little “ladies” hired to help their cause.
Please give a COMMENT and let me know what you think about this video and the organization who made it. Would YOU let your daughter be in a PSA like this?
Is this shock value ? Does it HELP in raising awareness that women are being treated unequally, or does it use manipulation to hurt it’s own cause?
Buying a T-Shirt? If so, WHY?
Out of The Mouths of Babes, Oops I mean “Slaves” (Paid young actors who know not what they speak of.)
