Blurred Lines as it should have been made

So sick of this song, Thicke, and now parodies … ARRGGH!

by Anonymousreply 109/03/2013

OP, summer's over. Nobody listens to that overplayed shit anymore. Last year it was Call Me Maybe, this year Blurred Lines, next some other garbage that people will rhapsodize over and then two weeks later get sick of.

But the parody is good and makes an excellent feminist point.

by Anonymousreply 309/03/2013

The feminists hate being women. They want to reject the body and concentrate on the mind. Well, you can't. If you take away Thicke and his merry band of voyeurs, the nude women in that video are having a good time and enjoying their bodies. That's my idea of a true feminist. Somebody who is comfortable to be objectified because a man's superficial opinion of her doesn't change her own opinion of herself and her own self respect, which owning her sexuality is synonymous with. Not hiding it because in some so called 'feminist's tiny mind, the only way she can compete with a man is by covering up and *gasp* TALKING!

R4 what a fascinating and fucked up brain you have.

r5, it's not my fault that you hate your body is it?

What the fucking christing shitting hell?

by Anonymousreply 709/03/2013

r7 - yes. Exactly. Somebody who is comfortable to be objectified by others because SHE does not objectify HERSELF and therefore she cannot TRULY be objectified. Is that clear? Do you FINALLY GET IT?

There in no way ANYONE can get it,man or woman.

And, as always, "feminism" is presented as the domain of well educated, upper middle class white women.

Cant you all take this feminism/pop sonf crap to iVillage or Jezebel where it belongs and stop littering this place with it?

What is that at R8? A mindfucking philosophy for dimwitted strippers?

r13, another woman hater. Why are you such a waste of oxygen?

The women in that video were hiding their sexuality?

by Anonymousreply 1509/03/2013

r15- can't you read? The so called 'feminists' WANT those women to hide it.

by Anonymousreply 1609/03/2013

No I can't read.

So what are the woman in the video? Afeminists?

by Anonymousreply 1709/03/2013

Simply replacing scantily clad women with scantily clad men isn't clever. Nor does it criticize or deconstruct the original. And it hardly makes an 'excellent feminist point.' It just shows that, given the opportunity, women can be as crass and objectifying as men.

r17 - the women in the video have an intuitive pleasure of being in their bodies. I think that makes them a tribute to the female sex, don't you? If you want to talk about a video that is truly degrading to women, watch Katy Perry's "Part of Me" where the singer lops off her hair and binds her breasts to join the Marines after catching her cheating boyfriend. I suppose the feminists must have loved that one - that somebody must give up what she is to be 'on the level' with the Man. I am disgusted.

the short boy is awfully cute and has a great body. just sayin

Two wrongs don't make a right (as grandma used to say). That parody video is hideous and doesn't prove anything or even make an effective point.

by Anonymousreply 2209/03/2013

In a way I agree, Objectification by any other name is still objectification

They should have used hotter dudes

But it does. It proves that objectification is hideous. That was the point.

by Anonymousreply 2509/03/2013

Ridiculous and sexist, OP.

by Anonymousreply 2609/03/2013

That was a STUPID video.

by Anonymousreply 2709/03/2013

The guys should have had their underwear off. Otherwise it was ok.

by Anonymousreply 2809/03/2013

r25, the ORIGINAL video did that. A second steaming pile of dogshit video was not needed to drive the point home. It was completely unnecessary and redundant.

by Anonymousreply 2909/03/2013

I'd rather watch a cat video.

What's the latest?

by Anonymousreply 3009/03/2013

Blurred Lines was mean't to have female models in the video, not guys. The comparison is redundant.

by Anonymousreply 3109/03/2013

Why are the lyrics to BLURRED LINES objected to by a good number of DLers.

What are the lyrics to this parody?

I can't understand either.

by Anonymousreply 3209/03/2013

Sounds like it was written by a frat jock: "Why don't you shut up and spread your legs? Do you need another beer?"

hey hey hey

"the nude women in that video are having a good time and enjoying their bodies. That's my idea of a true feminist"

No, darling, they're being paid to ACT like they're having a good time and enjoying their bodies. The reality of the video shoot was undoubtedly joyless, with hot lights, chafing rubber underwear, worries about how their bodies photograph, and douchey behavior from the male stars.

Someone around here doesn't understand how show biz works, and it isn't me.

r4's mother must have been a piece of work.

by Anonymousreply 3509/03/2013

Idiot at R34 They were not paid to do anything. They wrote, produced and paid for the video themselves.

More sex-hating, feminist shrews who want to spoil other people's fun.

Look, I do think it's sexist and disrespectful for Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell to see all women as "bitches."

And it's wrong and ugly to view all their relationships with their girlfriends as "pimpin.'"

But the feminist shrews who made the parody might as well ask water to stop being wet and people to stop breathing oxygen if they expect men to stop finding women hot, or wanting sex with women or acknowledging, depicting and celebrating their physical beauty -- what they call "objectifying."

There's nothing wrong with "objectifying" if the objectifiers respect and appreciate that sex isn't all a person is good for and treat them as such.

Clearly, Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell don't get that, but the parody doesn't nail the valid issues.

And I think there are a lot of feminist shrews who expect all women to behave the same and want the same things. They disrespect and look down on women who don't manage their own law firms and blame it all on men.

Being bimbos or housewives are cardinal sins instead of perfectly valid alternatives.

It's too bad these haters can't respect potentially harmless differences, even if they're not as amazing as being a lawyer or doctor or president.

Clearly such alleged feminists are chauvinists, too.
