Blote Tieten en Mannen in Pak/Naked Women Next to Men in Suits

(follow-up in English below, but even if you don’t read Dutch: the Dutch piece includes a good deal of photos that sets the tone)

“Vind je het een leuke video, best normaal? Draai de rollen dan eens om. Hoeveel clips kun je bedenken waarin mannen in hun blote pielemoos ronddansen terwijl ze met hun haar spelen en aan hun vingers likken? Geen een. Want andersom zou het er belachelijk uitzien.”

“Ondertussen blijven we keer op keer getuige van de objectificatie van vrouwen in reclames, videoclips en modeshoots: kleren uit, bek dicht, en lachen naar de camera zullen ze.”

This clip, with naked women and men in suits, was supposed to be ‘ironic’, the director explained: http://www.artistdirect.com/video/robin-thicke-blurred-lines-unrated-version/150624 However, it still is a clip with naked girls and men in suits. Irony is just the latest excuse for everything. Can there not be irony without boobs?

And another one of those videoclips has just been released….  yugh. Why is the ugly fuckface who attempts to sing not naked himself ? Probably shitting in his pants if this were suggested to him. Sad little coward.
Here’s a huffington post piece about the phenomenon of naked women as decoration next to fully dressed men: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/toula-foscolos/justin-timberlake-tunnel-vision_b_3550440.html?utm_hp_ref=tw
(It includes the sorry little dickwad’s video)
