Weekly Digest: Video Edition (February 28, 2015)

The end of February leaves me cold and tired, but Fox’s take on how little boys are being emasculated by Disney heroines may be enough to get your blood to boil. (I still can’t figure out how to embed some videos, but I BEG you to click and watch this segment.  You won’t regret it!)

When Zendaya Coleman wore dreadlocks to the Oscars, the “Fashion Police” ate their own feet.  For a full picture of the controversy, read my student’s blog post about the politics of hair here.  Here’s the apology heard round the Internet this week:

Speaking of the Oscars, Conan had some great fun with this ridiculousness.  For a good laugh, click here for the thirty second spoof on red carpet ridiculousness.

Finally, Portlandia saves the week with their male feminist sketch.  This week was long and hard and cold.  Enjoy a two-minute laugh:

    I love your blog- even though it sometimes makes me want to stab myself. That Fox Disney thing just made my head explode- like for real!

  2. Male feminists saving feminism is a delicious skit – I especially like the bull horn punctuating their mission statement!

    1. Thank God there’s something to make us laugh out there.
