I 'Can't Believe It' Either



I couldn't possibly hate this any more. And I can't believe this kind of stuff exists. Dismembered women's bodies? Someone wasn't paying attention during Miss Representation.
            "Women are often presented in a dehumanized way in mass media images, their                humanity sacrificed to display the artificial ideal.  Women are not only turned into a thing, but the thing is broken down into component parts, each of which also represents an ideal form.  She is dismembered.  Hence we get numerous images of lips, legs, breasts, butts, torsos - female body parts.  Frequently in such images the head is missing, emphasizing that females are not valued for their intellect, but for their external form, their curves.  Sut Jhally points out that presenting women as fragmented and disconnected body parts detracts from thinking about women as real people with their own intellect, feelings, dreams and desires.  Women become objects for consumption." 

So thanks Flo Rida (aka FLORIDA. I know your name is just the word "Florida" with a space in the middle of it and it pisses me off that you're making me write it that way), and Pitbull for reducing women to pieces of ass. This is awful. I am more than just a booty, I am a woman with a brain who is p-i-s-s-e-d.

Really you should just watch this instead:
