The part that slays me is, I found this at an "anti-misandry" site, (which I found through keyword trackback for the other blog, sometimes it pays to follow the breadrumb trail) as an example of feminist hate in music, you know (the link is here, http://antimisandry.com/discussion5337, we are not hyperlinking directly, we are being vewy vewy quiet, heheheheheheh). The analysis:
The males featured are just some kind of non-thinking, cloned automatons. They are tested by the female technicians who strip and dance around them to determine the response. Those who don't pass the test are put on a bed and set aside.
Is this what the average workplace will look like in two decades' time? Certainly, affirmative action and pro-female educational trends, and also Government policy like that of Labour's in the UK which will freeze wages for male workers will ensure women are numerically dominant. Someone here quoted that 75% of doctors under 30 are female; that's the kind of dominance I'm talking about.
Already the office is a place where the predatory female plays out sex games with male co-workers. Already, 43% of women have had sex with male colleaguesp in the UK, according to a recent report.
I know, right? And yet, I know sure as cheese as cheese that in -other- analyses, the sexy nurses are (all together now)
--quite literally, this time; which means, therefore, that this is yet another clear case of Pandering To The Patriarchy, part XXVIIIinfinityeleven.
probably even more so with this one, by the same people along with a Camille Jones (hey, learning about some cool new-to-me UK music at least):
...you know, at the -very end- of the video, there is...a MAN, crawling, on his hands and knees, for about .2 microseconds.
and before that, there are a bunch of somewhere between Robert Palmer and Maggie Gyllenhaal secretaries doing their sexy thing for one guy at the front desk (but but they OUTNUMBER HIM, SCARY) including, yep! crawling!
Either way, it's clearly all Very Wrong.
I'm sure there's far more interesting analysis one could do on either of these two videos wrt automatons and the workplace and maybe an allusion to "Stiffed" and some good ol'fashioned post-Marxist theorizin' along with some other shit;
but mostly, I'm thinking
1) hey, nice beat and I can dance to it
2) hey, I like the Janeane Garafalo-vibe Jones has going there.
3) damn, it must be hard to do those moves in a straight skirt, even with a slit
4) HAHAHA they think the Pussycat Dolls are evil feminist succubi too, PSYCH
