FCKH8’s Little Princesses Who Pull no Punches

I remember when I saw the first FCKH8.com video, and thinking wow that’s really clever because it took the idea of Prop 8 and turned it into and anti-hate idea. I wasn’t aware that they had expanded their message against hate until I saw their new video. FCKH8 has now broadened their causes by approaching racial and gender inequality on top of their original cause of LBGT equality.

The video recently released by the site is one to get people to think about what gender inequality really means. This video is a bunch of very little girls saying a lot of not very nice words. They want you to know that they aren’t pretty, little, helpless, princesses, as is usually associated with girls. I’ve heard many people say that they don’t like it when girls swear because it somehow changes the way they see them. Speech being one of the main freedoms a person is born with should be the last thing someone tries to use to restrict someone based on gender. These girls go on to explain that there are much worse words that they could say than dropping the F-bomb. The words they use are pay inequality, rape & violence, and be pretty.
