Feminists care about 6-year-old girls–by signing them up to be videoed dropping F-bombs
Even worldly Mediate was shocked by this one:
Yeah, in this video by FCKH8.com, little girls dressed up as princesses explain how unfair the world is to women with a crapload of words far worse than crapload.
For example, choice phrases include “I’m not some pretty fucking hopeless princess in distress!”, “Pay up, motherfucker!”, and “Start teaching boys not to fucking rape!” Yes, these little girls also talk about rape, as well as how society judges women’s looks and pay equality.
The girls ask, “What is more offensive: a little girl saying fuck or the fucking unequal sexist way society treats girls and women?”

Here’s the chin-puller of an explanation:
Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work, and where 1 in 5 women are raped or sexually assaulted in gender-based violence, little girls between 6 and 13 years-old dressed as pretty pink princesses drop F-bombs to draw attention to society’s continued sexism. Asking the question, “What’s more offensive? A little girl saying f*ck or the sexist way society treats girls and women” these adorably articulate little ladies in sparkling tiaras turn the “princess in distress” stereotype on its head and contrast the F-word with words and statistics society should find shocking such as “pay inequality” and “rape.”
Right–let’s put potty words into the mouth of a 6-year-old and film her saying them so we can throw around some fake statistics. We feminists love children.
