You know what I hate – videos that start with one thing and decide that they are going to completely nix that concept and instead focus on whatever pet project they are going to go after. Today it is the idea that women in the third world are poor because men have all the jobs. Oh, but rather than talk about that, their video that is supposed to pimp this topic out decides that they are going to focus on First World problems that are so devoid of context and lacking in any reason to care that I am amazed we don’t have a sad violin playing in the background. I’ll share the video, so none of you can saying I am taking things out of context, and then we’ll break it down.
Alright, so we got some chick in a foreign country just having a baby and asking if it’s a boy. The doctor says no. What does that have to do with anything? Is the idea that this chick in what I presume is a Third World country would rather have a boy than a girl? What is the argument there? What is the message?
Next we got some girl who is sitting that naked butt on a stone countertop. Yeah, that’s already unrealistic. But she is looking at some pic of a girl who is fat and it says “NO.” Then she looks at her own slight chub and is all distraught. I’m sorry, but what’s the point there? It’s clear this chick is in the First World. She’s on her smartphone with an electric toothbrush in a house that looks very nice. Clearly she isn’t living in poverty. That being fat means you are in poverty? What?
Next up we got a bunch of Asian people in a conference room and some girl is about to stand up for some reason, and the boss man says “no.” What’s the context here? Did she get passed over for a promotion? Maybe it wasn’t her turn to speak. Maybe they’re going around the table and it isn’t her turn yet. Without any context of any kind, we have no idea why “no” was said to her. What’s the point of this? That social justice idiots can’t make a point without totally divorcing context from it?
Then there is a little girl in Germany who wants to buy a shirt. Her mom says “no.” Why should I care? When you are a little kid, your parents can tell you that they don’t want you to wear certain clothes. It sure doesn’t look like fucking Goodwill that they are shopping at, so how is this a point about poverty? What did this have to do with anything even approaching the title of this video?!
Oh my god, a clip that actually has a point! We have some girl in some African country being sold off to a man. Wow, amidst all the women with their First World problems, they actually acknowledge that child marriage is bad. It is. I totally agree. The fact that there are countries that still have this blows my fucking mind. It kills me that in a video where it is supposed to be representing women in the Third World, it sure is nice that the video FINALLY acknowledges that these women and REAL problems actually fucking exist!
Then we get to some black woman at…somewhere turning in some kind of paperwork and being told “no.” Um, where was this? Was that a job application? Was she applying for a loan? Is this a bank? What the fuck is the context there?! Explain, video!
Oh, and then we have some teenage girl who is on her laptop when she suddenly has an apron put over her and the father figure is having her work while the little brother says “no.” Since I don’t see a mom, it seems that the dad is the one providing for these two children. What a horrible person, for having the child that he looks after help him with family chores. That’s just sexist! It doesn’t show that she was working on a school paper or something like that, so is the point here that fathers asking their daughters to help around the house is bad? It’s shit like this that makes people think Millennials can’t handle life.
Alright, then we got some party guy and girl and when the girl doesn’t reciprocate the guy’s advances, he says “no.” The guy’s a jerk, but I have to ask – what does this have to do with poverty being sexist? That jerk guys exist? This video is the personification of “one of these things is not like the other.” Virtually all of these clips are just feminist talking points and have fuck-all to do with the title of this fucking video.
Now we have some girl in the Third World wanting to go to school, and her mom says “no.” Why? Is this in some country where radical Islam has taken root and a girl being in school could potentially have her killed? If that’s the case, the mother is very right to say no. Without a single ounce of context, this clip could mean anything. But at the very least it does tie in to what the video is supposed to be fucking talking about.
The video then fucking ends by saying “none of us are equal until all of us are equal.” You have got to be fucking kidding me. 90% of this video was stupid First World problems, totally devoid of context, and you are going to make the argument that this showed inequality? Yeah, it showed one, arguably two places where there is sexism that hurts girls. And for those places, yeah, I genuinely do think something should be done. But for the rest of that bullshit, it is just another glowing symbol of how feminism is all about equality, after pushing their talking points and almost completely forgetting the women who actually need help right now. Way to lose the plot, idiots.
