An 8 year-old girl's brilliant mic drop about gendered clothing.  
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5SVm6Ooz5iI

Reminds me of this video I saw a few years back where a 4 year-old girl calls out the ridiculousness of gendered toy marketing.

youtube comment "why is this so funny?" sums it up rather astutely

I mostly only ever come on here to post stuff about this subject, but it's really fascinating to me. So anyway, iirc, I was asked why social justice and feminism have become "bad words" and I found a video that sums it up well, though I've probably posted stuff in relation to it in the past.

The video is about 30 minutes but I found it to be pretty funny in a self deprecating way, but I'll give a summary anyway.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZl9tKBARCA
The idea is that social justice *warriors* have low "integrative complexity" that makes them inflexible in their opinions because their entire worldview is informed by their ideology that if there's a disparity then that must be equal to oppression/discrimination: see equality of opportunity vs equality of outcome and equal representation in the media, disproportionate policing of low income neighborhoods because the most crime happens predominantly in neighborhoods inhabited by racial minorities, etc.

It's like if a feminist says that gendered toys for kids or gendered clothes are sexist, but they're gendered because most people/kids tend toward the things associated with their genders, or that the pink tax (high prices for women's stuff) is sexist even though they're more expensive because they have more ingredients like women's shampoo for example.
This is the problem with feminist studies, that they use their mindset to explain anything as oppression if it seems like it could be.
case in point

I'd be interested in debating this with someone, though I rarely get online and basically never check replies to any posts I make, so I guess send a PM if this interests you and feel like talking about it, maybe I'll get back to you.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

This is both categorically not true and misses the entire point of anyone who complains about minorities being targeted by police.

That thing is cool.  It reminds me of Madurodam in the Netherlands but on a global scale.  I loved Madurodam as a kid.

Youtube allowing me to play videos at 2x speed is a really great feature, it only now only takes me 15 minutes to listen to a long winding monologue that can really just be summed up into one line ("People who don't think about problems from multiple angles suck, also here's another made-up definition for a term that has become totally meaningless"). I'm not even sure even he knows what his point really is, at one point he even says it's fine to analyze fiction and culture using specific lenses (Death of the Author is taught in like the first lecture of every Literature class), but I guess he thinks it's only annoying when people do it with identity politics?

INH it's great you have an interest in this stuff but I doubt you're endearing yourself to anyone by only showing up to post your own stuff about "middle ground" and "neutrality" when like 8/10 of your points sound awfully familiar to ones out of various right-wing think tanks (when you aren't being blatant and just posting places like Daily Mail), then adding qualifiers about how you're not going to be around to read replies (or by my suspicion, just unwilling to engage in a public discussion). Don't proselytize and then ask everyone to message you in private.

Or just find a good politics board or something.

This is just amazing and weirdly accurate. Watch it even if you don't play Warframe (or know what it is):

(If this is too vague to catch your interest: the animation is really well done)
