No, you’re not seeing double, this little girl dressed as a princess IS giving us, or rather, society as a whole, the middle finger. And while she says the F-word with her finger this time, she and four other little girls of different races drop the F-bomb repeatedly. Now if you have little girls and boys, you shouldn’t feel ashamed about letting them watch this video, unless of course you think girls should be sexualized, or paid less than men, or raped and so on.
Here’s what some of the pink princesses say in this video (which you can watch below):
1. “Women make 23% less than men for the exact same f*cking work. I shouldn’t need a penis to get paid.”
2. “Stop focusing on the way I f*cking look and give me a book. My aspirations in life shouldn’t be worrying about the shape of my ass.”
3. “One out of five women will be sexually assaulted or raped by a man. Stop telling girls how to dress and start teaching boys not to f*cking rape.”
And guess what, this video is proof that men want the same rights and equality for women, since this video is produced by Mike Kon. He says, “Some adults may be uncomfortable with how these little girls are using a bad word for a good cause. It is shocking what they are saying, but the real shock is that women are still paid less than men for the same work in 2014, not the use of the F-word. The big statistic that 1 out of 5 women are sexually assaulted or raped is something society seems to find less offensive than a little four letter word and we love how these girls draw attention to that imbalance.”
Towards the end of the video, you will find women wearing T-shirts with bold pink text declaring “Girls Just Want to Have Fun-damental Rights” and “This is What a #Feminist Looks Like.” These tees can be purchased at FCKH8.com, starting at $15, with $5 from every T-shirt sold will benefit five anti-sexism organizations and projects, and website visitors will also be able to name their favorite groups they would like to benefit.
