I don't get it. Was there some sort of error on the page?

I haven't done any programming in almost 20 years, but I doubt I'd ever have been able to decypher that mess.

Really, Slate staff writer Amanda Hess? Is it that difficult to remember? I mean, it's not like you're trying to write on a professional level or anything...

Typical sandy vag Slate writer.  These girls can make a perfectly good point about objectification without trying to look like Rosie O'Donnell.  I know I wouldn't have watched the whole video and enjoyed their message if they looked like Grandma Lurch from up the block.


/Yes, I objectified while watching a video about objectification.
//Those gals are smokin' hot.
///And they can sing, too.

I see what you did there but you really didn't need to.

/for those confused - the headline said "objectifying women" so subby wrote a C++ object representing the women in question.

They don't sing or play all that well.  They got a deal because they are good looking blonde and not fat.

Don't forget, even if we value their thoughts and feelings, finding women sexually attractive is wrong and we should be made to feel bad about it.

I think what's being missed is how terrible that song is.

AiryAnne: I think what's being missed is how terrible that song is.


I figured that was just assumed, given that it's contemporary "country." Hey, Maddie, Tae? Next time you're asked by the label to wear a revealing crop top or to show a little more leg on your next televised appearance, don't reflect on the irony of the situation. Self-awareness is a no-no in the biz.

Found this supercut in a shorter Mediaite story about the same video.

Since when did country become twangy vocals over hip hop beats? All flavor of the week pop music sounds exactly the same regardless of genre. This is just another tune for drunk chicks at the bar to go "WOOOO!" When it comes on

Well of course it is, because the real object is to make money.  Wooo Girl songs make money and are remembered for years.

Also, 5 years.  That's how long country music has been vocals over hip hop beats.  Or, at least what would have been hip-hop beats 30 years ago.

The most offensive offender: http://youtu.be/vNVguvNE7qc
Gotta love the little sample from "Carwash" at the beginning.  Also, any song trying to be sexy should not use the word "britches."

If the author is suggesting that the only way to eliminate gender roles in music videos is for the female musicians to not wear makeup and fancy clothing, she needs to realize that the male musicians do wear makeup (TV makeup) and fancy clothing for their own music videos. It's not a gender thing, it's a you are appearing in a music video in order to promote your album so it's best you dont look like you just woke up on laundry day kinda thing.
 
2014-07-29 09:37:47 AM  
Even if they don't dress like Daisy Duke, do they honestly not see that they wouldn't have been give a chance if they looked like Rosie O'Donnell?
 
2014-07-29 09:41:24 AM  
It's a nice sentiment the song tries to express, unfortunately the people delivering that message aren't very good at it. Now, if they'd had the women, dressed more tomboyish, and objectifying the everloving shiat out of the men, and not doing it in a way that's just comical, they could have pulled it off. The problem is, they people behind the scenes just aren't funny.

On the other hand, the people at Ducati Corsa did something similar, and actually pulled it off.

Ok, so you're the second person in this thread to reference Rosie O'Donnell. Why does it have to be such a binary choice? There's lots of women who look great, but don't dress like Daisy Duke, or wear skimpy outfits at all. It's not hard to pull off; if the woman looks good, chances are she'll look good no matter what she wears.

Say what?
 
2014-07-29 09:57:28 AM  
I actually kind of agree with their effort.  Not so much because of the femanism thing but modern country is awful.  There are three kinds of people who like modern country:

1. guys that need to be at their klan rally in 26 minutes
2. guys trying way too hard to hide their homosexuality
3. the people that want to bang the above

No they didn't.  The shoes are different.

FTFY. The $ signs in front of variables and the use of -> to access object methods gives it away.

I know a lot of teens from fairly affluent suburbs who listen to country radio. I think it's unknown (to them) territory from them to explore, something alien to their parents and friends.

I had to take a 6 hour car trip with some of these kids. Owww, my ears.

/ I love a lot of country but nothing that gets radio play

Because the madonna-whore complex grew a twisted little offshoot: the dyke/whore complex.

That ain't C++, the "$" in front of the variable name is invalid, as is "self::".

The song makes a good point, but so does the article. The "roll reversal" in the video makes the guys look like clowns, not sexy.

Meanwhile, all the women in the video are hot. Nothing wrong with that, but the video suggests that only women can be sexy and objectified. No roll reversal at all.

God dammit, no they didn't.

The POINT of these "exercises" is to demonstrate how ridiculous draping a female form over a vehicle looks when the roles are reversed. Putting a supermodel next to Jerry from accounting doesn't demonstrate that at all, it demonstrates that a supermodel is hotter then Jerry from accounting. Put Fran from HR up there- you know, pale, doughy, about 40lbs overweight, like our friend Jerry there. Demonstrate actual equivalency. Either that, or swap the male "model" with an actual male model, just like you used an actual female model for the other half. Want "fair and equal" treatment? It's a two-way street.

/why does my browser try to autocorrect "actual" to "Calcutta"?

Prophet of Loss: I bet if these two ladies were fat and frumpy, they wouldn't have a recording contract.


Yes, but that says more about the state of the music industry than about the message this video was attempting to convey.
