Yeah, this is nice and all, but the people who made this do realize that the people they were addressing will just roll their eyes, spout something about Jesus, and continue on their merry way trying to put women back in the kitchen, right?

Yes, but at least making it made them feel good. Then the people watching it will share it on Facebook, making them feel good. Then it will be on TV shows talking about how watching it made them feel good. Nothing constructive was done, but at least a lot of people felt good.

I'm certain there will be viewers that do this, but I'm equally certain that there will also be viewers who will listen to these women in an empathetic manner. Granted there are likely to be more of the former than the latter, but IMHO, it doesn't lessen the impact of the video significantly

Things like this don't have any effects on morons with inflexible belief structures. But they can certainly make a difference to those who haven't yet formed an opinion, children of religious twats for eg. It also strengthens the motivation of those that want change or to see an end to discrimination.

I think - maybe - this is more about firing up people - women - who already pretty much feel this way but aren't particularly politically active.

Women are taught from birth to look to men for a definition of acceptable behavior (because we NEED them to like us!) and that speaking out and saying these things is unacceptable for a woman. If you do it, you're a strange girl or maybe not even a real girl. This video is about helping women give themselves permission to demand equal rights, even when men make fun of them and dismiss their ideas, and not to give a flying fark what men or fundies or anyone else thinks about it.
 
2012-07-29 11:31:29 PM  
If this video pisses off one fundamentalist that wants everyone in the US to follow their misguided views because "BUT THE BIBLE" then it was well worth the view.

And if it makes even one of those same misguilded fundies realize how wrong they are... well it's a pipe dream but it's nice...

It is funny how an elementary school rhyme I was taught to chime away Sanduskies also applies to fundies.

Your body, my tax dollars. Tell that to the people milking the welfare system out there. If I'm sick or think I am, I'm paying to be treated. Its not my right to remain healthy, its my personal obligation to myself.

If you don't want a Bar Mitzvah, don't have one.
If you don't want to have an abortion, don't have one.
LEAVE RELIGION OUT OF AMERICAN CITIZEN'S CHOICES.
 
2012-07-30 12:00:58 AM  
DO NOT RECOMMEND. Difficult to fap to, could only progress with a few of the girls, then forced back to a holding pattern until another cute one cycled back. B+, BUT I WON'T BE WATCHING THIS ONE AGAIN

It's cute they assume that they'll see the video in the first place. First rule of FOX Club: Don't venture into places delivering differing opinions. Second rule of Fox Club: Because fark you, that's why.

The video is great and all, but we already agree with you. Get in the gutter and fight.

Ah yes, wouldn't it be nice if we could pick and choose what our taxes go to?

I would like my share of the Iraq War back, and have the option to not chip in for future military farces.

The fraction of a cent that helps a woman get a mammogram?

I'm OK with that.

Looks like an ant. Probably has the same consequences if smooshed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the nation of America was founded on ideas, right? Why is it so unlikely that there, the promotion, the distillation, the distribution of powerful ideas, new ways to think about old problems, could have some impact?
 
2012-07-30 01:52:45 AM  
I like how women get the choice to abort or keep but they apparently don't have the choice to keep their legs closed.
 
2012-07-30 01:53:27 AM  
Not sure if I can fap to this....

The war on women that the right wing is waging in this country is a travesty on the order of the subjugation of women in Afghanistan or the oppression of women in Saudi Arabia. The religious zealots have turned the useful teachings of religion into justifications of their own beliefs and insecurities. Not that religion was ever teaching anything particularly good in the first place, being a justification for the misogynist culture of ancient goat herders in the first place.

According to one viewpoint, it is bad to have abortions. To every other one, it's fine. Why does that one viewpoint have to be legislated for everyone? We don't live in a theocracy, we live in a country where the supreme court upheld the right to abortion for everyone on Constitutional grounds. We live in a country where church and state were separated by our founding fathers. Is the only reason you say things like that because you want your religion to be law? I don't get it...

Feeling good isn't constructive?

I can't help noticing that those who are obsessed with fetuses in utero don't give a damn about said beings once they've become newborn babies. Those who want to force women to have children against their will are the same people who complain when these women go on welfare to provide for their children, and the same people who want to end Obamacare so those women and children won't have access to affordable health care. And none of those people are lining up to adopt any of the approximately 200,000 available children in the U.S. foster care system.

I liked how the Supreme Court legalized homosexuality but specifically exempted prostitution which is another choice for an adult. Gotta love the left wing hypocrisy.
 
2012-07-30 02:01:25 AM  
Yeah... it would be nice if it was really "your body", but most (if not all) governments feel a bit differently....
I can't put whatever chemicals I choose in my body... I can't rent it out for sexual favours...
And don't get me started on what I can't do with "MY" property....

I wouldnt go that far, true that a certain type of person gravitates here to fark, and we do all agree for the most part on most things, but abortion is a really divisive issue. I mean on the one hand, killing babies is awesome, but on the other women shouldnt have rights.
 
2012-07-30 02:02:05 AM  
Too many ethnics. Only one blonde white girl. The rest are not welcome in the country they were born in and should immediately return to whatever country I think they came from.

Europe, probably. We don't let Europeans in. Too socialist.
