    On the one hand, the original video is sad enough without duplicates of any sort being made. On the other hand, gender-flipping the concept highlights how accepting society is of the objectification of women and how unusual we find it when men are treated similarly. So... Yay, feminism?

    Now where`s my eye bleach?

    The problem is, there is no way to objectify a man in media. All media is created from the male perspective, the "Male Gaze".

    If you try to "flip it around" it only comes across as silly & gay.
    Rather than prove a point to the heterosexual male, it`s just discounted as dumb.

    It would have been a thousand times funnier to have the models remain women, and have them in ridiculous costumes like bee keeper masks & knight`s armour & have the #`s say things like #men Rjerks #womenRnotObjects #thereisactuallymusicplaying

    Men don`t care if we`re objectified. In fact, we enjoy it.

    If you want my body and you think I`m sexy.....

    In the UK they are about to remove Charles Dickens from the back of our £10 note and replace him with Jane Austen. The reason is that the PC police say there should be more women represented. Like this video, isn`t that because throughout history, men have always been the ones to have the original ideas?

    "...because throughout history, men have always been the ones to have the original ideas"

    Interesting take, drawman. I mean who needs Frankenstein? Radioactivity? Circular saws? Kevlar? Mufflers? Harry Potter? DNA?

    What`s that? Watson and Crick discovered that? Sure. But not without Rosalind Franklin (it`s her birthday today). Because when women do amazing things - despite centuries of being denied the social, professional, and educational opportunities men have enjoyed - they often get left out of the history books or are footnotes. So, I don`t know, maybe celebrating an author who was creating timeless novels while Dickens was in diapers (and before) isn`t the worst thing in the world.

    But you know what`s not an original idea? Making purposefully idiotic, bigoted comments on the Internet and pleasuring one`s self while waiting for a reaction. I`m not sure who invented trolling, but if you want to claim it was a man, I won`t disagree.

    I dunno, piperfawn... Given the norms of ancient Greece, for example, in terms of men and younger boys, can we really be 100% sure of that?
