Potty-Mouthed Princesses: Why This Video Is Drawing Parental Outrage
The company FCKH8 has released an Internet video that purports to promote gender equality, but critics are accusing its producers of exploiting young girls.
The "F-Bombs for Feminism" video features girls, ages 6 to 13, dressed up as princesses and using profanity to rant about pay inequality and sexual abuse.
The company says the "potty-mouthed princesses" draw attention to sexism by asking the question, "What's more offensive? A little girl saying f**k or the sexist way society treats girls and women?"
But the video's detractors say FCKH8 is exploiting the girls just to make a profit. On its website, the group identifies itself as a "For-profit T-shirt company with an activist heart."
"Remember that FCKH8 is the same company that made a profit off Ferguson by selling Ferguson T-shirts. Now they want to profit off feminism," one woman tweeted.
"Why create a video full of cursing kids? Answer: http://FCKH8.com is a for-profit T-shirt company," another person tweeted.
