Thanks go to Michael for sending me the link to this one. I really enjoyed sneaking a peek at the office.
With over 850,000 hits on Youtube, Bubbles and Cheesecake are garnering a lot of attention for their feminist message. But what the hell are they talking about?
In the comments section, a lot of viewers seem to think the song is about women giving up their sexuality, which I think is a legit interpretation. But I think they're talking about the way women second-guess themselves and give up their voice. If you click over to Bubbles and Cheesecake's website, you can get a line by line explanation of the lyrics. So I guess I'm right.
The video has unleashed a firestorm of hateful, misogynistic "get back in the kitchen" type of comments. But let's stop and think for a minute about where these comments are coming from. The majority of Youtube's users are young, white males. Is anyone shocked that they don't get it?
I say, right on, mama. Speak your mind and stand up for yourself. If the Spice Girls could preach Girl Power and make it popular, you should heed the message.
