Old and Busted: Raising Little Ladies — New and Hot: Girls Dropping F-Bombs
A feminist group with a vulgar URL we won’t link to has decided they’re going to challenge the status quo of how to properly raise a little girl. So they came up with a video to shock people into changing. The group offers this fact-free description: “Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work [false], and where 1 in 5 women are raped or sexually assaulted in gender-based violence [false], little girls between 6 and 13 years-old dressed as pretty pink princesses drop F-bombs [true] to draw attention to society’s continued sexism. Asking the question, ‘What’s more offensive? A little girl saying f-ck or the sexist way society treats girls and women’ these adorably articulate little ladies in sparkling tiaras turn the ‘princess in distress’ stereotype on its head and contrast the F-word with words and statistics society should find shocking such as ‘pay inequality’ and "rape.‘ The video also features a 12 year-old boy wearing a pink gown standing up against sexism saying, 'When you tell boys not to "act like a girl,” it’s because you think it’s bad to be a girl.’“ We’ve come a long way from Shirley Temple, baby.
Clearly, not safe for work. Or children.
