I stumbled upon this video a few weeks ago and I was completely taken back by the delivery . For starters , these are girls who can't be over the age of 7 , that have a clear cut understanding of what they are up against in the future. While the language was very strong , we have to take a moment to understand every word and its relevance. As they shared the words that were " more f*cked up than the word 'f*ck'" , I couldn't help but to nod in agreement and wish that I was taught these things at a younger age . Unfortunately , anti - feminists also known as anti-women's rights folks disagree and believe that these sweethearts should be playing wit barbies and riding bikes.
Though I agree that children should be allowed to be just that , I understand how much times have changed and I have a clear understanding of why conversation such as this need to be had. Why are we more concerned about the language and not so much about that message ? As a young child , I remember innocently saying certain things that got me in trouble because they were repeated or deemed as " too sassy" . Some of those things , if not all , were the truth and others were things that I would repeat which is natural for children at a young age. I know I seem to be going off on a tangent but stay tuned !
It's important to us that our children develop our athletic abilities , eye color , soft hair , but we somehow bypass the need for them to gain knowledge of the world around them because it is too troublesome for their minds. We continuously shield children from the real world and I personally believe that it is detrimental to their social health.
Some believe that feminism is the only message being portrayed here , which is a major issue. The biggest issue that I found in the comments of this video ( read for yourself) was that people belittle the issues and struggles of women , when feminism covers various oppression's ( but this isn't about that ) .
If you watched this video and thought " this is absurd" , I challenge you to watch it once more and be inspired to teach the babies.
No...REALLY, watch it again.
