War On Women? Ads using young girls cursing. Very disturbing. (F word used through out). What kind of mother would do this?!
Mother was asked what she considered child abuse and her answer was "rape." She needs some lengthy therapy, as does her daughter. But, at least that Sugar Boo Boo & her mother are GONE!
Mother was an idiot. Boo boo's mother was dating a convicted child molester.
People are becoming so uncivilized. Sex sells...I guess swearing does too now.
War on women?? The libs will try to sell us all the Brooklyn Bridge next! Idiots.
That was entertaining!!
Looks like its a private business exploiting kids (probably paid them and their parents well) to sell their product. Which is yet another message t-shirt that nobody cares about or looks at.
I imagine the mothers high fiving their girls this morning as they talk about how they made the news. Yay me. Everyone likes the way I talk ghetto.
I saw this...but I don't entirely get the point and I think it's kind of horrible. Wrong way to go about the campaign I think.
Shock value to get the message out. Whether people agree with it or not they will still ask 'have you seen it?' and 'what do you think about it?'
I like the swear jar at the end. =)
They should have brought out a chest.
This is disgusting.
Honestly, it seems like modern feminists are trying to destroy class, not inequality.
I haven't seen the video, but in general I don't think it's that bad for kids to know cuss words. As long as you teach them when it's inappropriate to use them, it should be fine. I wouldn't go far enough to say she's a bad mom.
Watch the video in the link.
Ok, I watched it. I guess a group of parents agreed to it. Still doesn't bother me. The girls are old enough to taught when they can and can't cuss, and there's nothing inherently wrong with cussing except that it's rude.
I myself think it was excessive, especially for a child.
Brenstal -are you a teen?
No, I'm in my 20s.
Just to be clear, I agree that it's rude for children to cuss. I just don't think it's that big of a deal, as long as they know not to cuss in public places besides this one time.
It's just disturbing. How does a mother do that to her child?
That organization is disgusting and horrible. I'm honestly sickened by watching 30 seconds of that propaganda. Why do we let this happen? What happened to morality?
I don't know why libs would think that was a good idea. If my kids used that language as children, they would have been grounded and we would have had a serious discussion about it!
This is not feminism, it's just disgusting.
Though I strongly consider myself a feminist, I don't think this helps anyone with oppression.
Exactly! And the use of children in this way is abhorrent.
I agree. There are some situations where children just don't belong.
We are agreeing on so much today :-)
A liberal Feminazi. And it's child abuse.
How is it child abuse?
They have altered these children's futures by teaching them that they can get paid very well for using obscene language (and statistical lies, though the kids will believe them now). Basically they have stolen a chunk of their innocence several years
before these 6-year-olds would ever have even heard this nasty word. That's mental abuse.
Oh, I don't know that many 6 year olds have not heard the word. I had heard the word when I was 6. And it was not from my parents or their friends I assure you. The format of the ad distracts from their purpose though ...
Well this is old school but here goes, my mother told all of us (her kids) that once you cuss or start name calling you've already lost the argument.
Your mother is wise.
Aside of the fact that I don't agree with this whole war on women thing, little girls swearing is very unnecessary. If they can't find a better way to get your message across, maybe they should leave it to someone else.
That's just exploiting children that have no understanding of what they are doing. I feel the same way about people in the abortion debate that have children protesting for or against.
I actually saw a protestor having a kid hand out pamphlets with bloody fetus's and captions about how unborn children are the real victims if rape..heavy stuff. I yelled at the guy for involving a kid and was happy to see only adults there later.
Some stuff just isn't for kids.
There is a female child who was shot in the head by the Taliban overcame all of that and Won a Nobel prize. I don't ever recall curse words coming from her. She exhibits more class and gets more respect then this bunch of Hollywood wanna be's.
I don't like to hear or see in the buddy cursing but especially young and more special yet young girls. I'm an old fuddy-duddy.
No you're not, Tops, you're a classy lady.
No Tops. Your a good mom
Whew. That was hard to watch. I def agree that these are issues that society needs to handle, but not like that. Being a feminist doesn't need to be vulgar to get your point across.
And their points (22% wage gap, 1/5 women sexually assaulted) have been thoroughly debunked by liberal media like the Washington Post. Just not true stats.
True stats or not the disturbing thing is that women/girls are still being assaulted. I don't care if it's 1 in a million it's too much. And yes, if they want to be taken seriously their data should be correct
It also shows that they aren't intelligent enough to explain what they mean without being vulgar. Poor taste.
Also, Tlaney, about 3% of rapists see a day in jail. Mine never saw one. Neither if them. We absolutely do have problems with rape and sexual assault. Also, the number of people who think it's appropriate to tell me it's my fault indicates some
Seriously flawed attitudes about rape. I also have way too many friends who've been assaulted or raped. I just don't see other crimes touch so many people I've met. Though I agree, vulgarity is unnecessary to get the point across.
AJ, I agree 100%. ❤️
The CDC seems in agreement about the 1 in 5 number and they were the most not overtly biased I could find. I'd love to see a better study if you know if one.
Ah! The future whores of America! nice!
The prime guy for war on women was Bill Clinton. Cross your legs gals.
Sorry, this video does not exist.
Looks like I've found a new place to do some shopping, though.
Just shows where the democratic party is heading.
It's a good thing I'm not a democrat.
Yes you are!
...So, um, you're trying to tell me what my political affiliation is...? You're mistaken nonetheless.
Basically, it was a video of little girls in princess dresses with very dramatic movements talking about how things like sexual assault, sexism and pay inequality are more offensive than the word fuck.
Ah, thanks... That helps for the context. Yeah, I don't really have much if a problem with that. There are better approaches, but whatever... Not my campaign.
That's my take too. Then again, I DO find rape more offensive than curse words... (or a little boy in a dress, like some below are getting their panties in a wad over.)
Oh, yeah, most definitely. Are there better approaches? Probably. Do I care about the cursing? Haha, no.
Maybe this link will help MrL. I think there are better ways to convey a message.
I saw it elsewhere later on in the day. That link doesn't work on my device.
My issue isn't with the cursing. I couldn't care less about that. Your insistence on trying to label me into a party to which I don't belong pissed me off far more than the
video. And in either case, I still don't care much, if at all.
OK, I'm sorry. But you do seem liberal on many of you post. Then you are what you are. But when you have a little girl and she tells you to go fuck yourself then you might care what they say.
Liberal doesn't equate to democrat. One is a political party (Democratic Party), which may encompass some liberal individuals (meaningless division within political philosophies), but the reality is that neither label holds any meaning. No need to
apologize though. Like I said, I really didn't care. I thought it was ridiculous is all.
As for the ad, I don't hold any objections to people using "curse words". Beyond the social stigma and connotation, the annotation of these words is by no
measure any bit more offensive than other words which could be used to describe the same things.
I have no party affiliate but I am conservative. I just think it's tacky to have these children say that junk. I don't think it was their choice to do it or even know what they were saying. Just a sad way to voice a message.
But we do basically have a two party system and most liberals vote democrat and most conservatives vote republican we get pigeon holed to those parties. I defend religion but I'm not religious either. But they'll call me a christian.
The ad drew a lot of attention, and it does show that people were actually more concerned about cursing than what the real issues were.
As for the insistence on labeling people and trying to force them into those labels: it's an issue for most any
group or individual, because our society is more concerned with that over actually understanding people fully.
Coming from "FCKH8" it's not surprising.
I don't really get offended by curse words, but I'm not sure I see the point in this. In your face ads almost never win people over to your cause, it just makes them stand firmer in their own.
At least we know who will be on the next teen pregnancy show...
So sad. By the way, if you couldn't stand to watch the whole thing, it includes a little Hispanic boy in a princess dress. How perfectly racially PC the ad is.
I probably won't see anyone wearing one of their $5 t-shirts, but if I do I'll probably talk to them about how disgusting this campaign is.
Really? They dress a boy up in a dress? And these kids will be our future. Absolutely frightening.
I saw it Cats.
Bet the NOW people love it.
The little boy in the princess dress was adorable. There is NO reason a boy shouldn't be allowed to dress up too.
And you're the one who noticed his race, fwiw...
Wow you have a sick mind Rosebud. I feel pity for you.
I'd rather be pitied by you than have you look up to me Cowboy, considering the views you hold.
Says someone that would put a boy in a dress...
*that would let a boy wear a princess dress if he wanted to.
Fixed that for you.
See what I mean? How awful is that?
Just wrong, why not teach them to not use that word, then more people will listen!
Free speech at its"finest". Thanks again CC
Boy, am I old and way out of step. Tears for us.
Those poor kids. Thirty seconds is all I could take. Liberalism is very disgusting
15 seconds more than me.
You see their mothers at the end.
They must be some real winners, huh? Let me guess. No fathers, right?
And people wonder why America is falling behind...
I do not view that favorably or persuasively.
Really messed up.
