Little Girls Speak “F-Bombs for Feminism” in Viral Video Educating Adults On Sexism

This post has been seen 2897 times.

So I stumbled upon this errrr controversial video yesterday. But let me not spoil it for you, just read below and tell me what you think about the video…

Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work, and where 1 in 5 women are raped or sexually assaulted in gender-based violence, little girls between 6 and 13 years-old dressed as pretty pink princesses drop F-bombs 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.”

  1. Hahaha. I love it. Somehow, they made “fuck” a lot less offensive. And maybe society would pay a little more attention to women’s plights.

    Hmmm…i have mixed feelings. Its for a good cause and i know they were going for the shock factor. Which they got! but i wouldn’t like or want my little girl or boy saying such profane words just to prove a point. IMO two wrongs don’t make a right…

  3. Unfortunately, the message is lost in the controversy surrounding the F-word. I watched an interview with the mother of one of the girls in the video yesterday. She said her girl has never used the F-word before and they were just acting. The problem is, how would she now tell her 5-year-old that it’s okay to use the word severally on the video but never use it at school? Whether we like it or not, we are members of a society has has defined certain things/words as inappropriate. Biden was teased for so long after his BFD comment.

    The same message can be passed across without lacing it with so much profanity, especially by kids. If the groups’ goal was to get folks talking about the F-word, they certainly achieved that. But if it was to talk about gender inequality, they missed they mark, as the discussions have nothing to do with the cause they are championing.

  4. I love the profanity, I love the fact that very young girls were used. Why? Maybe the shock factor would allow the message sink in. Trust me if they’d made this video without all the fucks, they wouldn’t have gotten a tenth of the traffic they’ve gotten. Ofili wouldn’t have put up the video here would he? I wish every child would get to see this video and the right mindsets would be formed. Our generation is lost already, it’s too late for us.

  5. Omg! That was awesome. It feels good to know that I’m not alone in my race for Gender Equality. The point was passed and the word ‘fuck’ sounded way less offensive as compared to Rape and Sexism. I really loved that. #thisiswhatafeministlookslike
