Fergie sets women back a gajillion years
You might ask, and you would be right in doing so, "what's the difference between Fergie poncing around in a girl scout uniform and a pre-Federline Brittney Spears in her naughty schoolgirl outfit? I didn't see you bitching about that. Obviously, you love the objectification of children. All those quizzes are right - you are evil."
Ok, on the surface, there's no difference. They're both women playing into a dismayingly common male fantasy*. But here's the thing: Brittney was about 17 years old when her video was made, possibly didn't see the problem, and probably didn't have a whole lot of creative control anyway. Fergie is (according to IMDB.com) 31 years old. Shouldn't she know better? I don't care how much money you're making - you're goddamned right she should. Although, according to the song, she's "not promiscuous", I think I'd respect her a lot more if she'd merely stayed home and had lots of anonymous sex. Then, at least, the women of America wouldn't have to waste their time patiently explaining why being expected to dress up like a child is actually really, really creepy. Maybe there's something to Twisty's "every act by an opressed group is a political act" after all...
Anyway, for your edification, or if you just want to tell me how oversensitive and full of crap I am (I know my brothers both have a lot of time on their hands right now), I've embedded the video below.
*Note for all my IRL friends: Jesus save me from the ridiculousness that is straight men who watch too much porn. This is why I don't date Americans.
