As they say, no pain, no gain. I sacrificed a night of sleep, but now I finally understand what I did never during all my years of my M.A. in American Litertaure and Culture, why Americans are so fond of home schooling. Before all the great teachers out there now get angry be assured that I am convinced that you are doing great work, passing on your expertise that cannot be acquired by downloading some worksheets off the internet. Great teachers are often the reason why someone becomes interested in a subject and once the flame has been lit, then often proceed to major in that subject at university. My German teacher (grade 7-13) certainly had a huge impact on my passion for reading and writing. Also, despite suffering from constant bullying I always valued my school as a great place of learning and somewhere where I have made life long friendships. I definitely also had teachers that I would disagree with. However, when I learned that the silly girl from the cheap Feminism propaganda video (same old, same old, all critics of Feminism are white, old, male, conservative Fox News nuts) was touring schools in the US to teach sex education to teenagers my jaw dropped. I looked at some of her ‘instructive’ videos and was aghast.
So, if she were just another attention craving girl, who makes silly videos on youtube, that get promoted by upworthy because she is very good at flirting with the camera, I would not have wasted much more time on her. But when I learned that a person with such dubious ethics teaches such an important subject to thuosands to teenagers I decided to give her videos a closer look.
Trigger warning, a lot of cleavage to come.
Nope, it isnt just the clothes that are inapropriate for a teacher, it’s the sexy dancing, the fake glasses, sexual make-up, the come-to-bed eyes, the bed room voice, …. She seems like a teacher in a fetish porn video. While she purports to teaching young people that relationships are based in mutual respect, shared values and interests etc. she is presenting herself as the ultimate objectification of women. The whole video would make sense if it was a parody for adults on how NOT to teach sex ed to young people.
I have sent her a tweet asking what the point is of pointing the camera into her cleavage throughout the video. For starters it would be nice to know what the point of the deep cut top is. As I said before, women can wear whatever they want, but you don’t need to be a movie industry profesisonal to be aware that in a film everthing sends out a message, hence why so much money is spent on all aspects. Again, if this was just to get attention, everyone to her own, but since this is aimed at teenagers, I am outraged. She is not only representing herself as a living Barbie, she is teaching young boys and girls to mistrust each other and to basically see their partner as their enemy number one, a person who needs to be put int heir place as soon as he steers of the script in the princess’ head. Laci Green embodies the age of female entitlement! Any young person gets the message that women can act anyway they want, thrust their boobs into a guy’s face and then call him rapey and creepy if he looks at them. There is a reason that the sentence: “You dress like a teacher is not a compliment.” Teachers are supposed to tone it down. They are in the classroom to teach and not to get affirmation from adolescent boys. If a male teacher acted like this he would have been fired a long time ago, but these are the double standards in our society, women can get away with anything. Questioning a man’s behaviour is a noble act, daring to question a woman’s behaviour makes one a woman hater. The last thing adolescent boys need is adult women thrusting their boobs at them. I remember one such teacher well. Actually she wasn’t pretty. She looked like a witch. But she would always wear low cut blouses and and sit on the table and lean over the boys. She made me cringe, just the way that Laci does in the next shot.
Here she explains situations to her young audience that every new couple goes through, especially inexperienced couples. It is interesting how this Feminist (supposed to mean empowering women) only ever speaks about the boys behaviour, the girl is apparently just sitting there and judging him. If he makes a mistake and approaches her not in the way that the princess had dreamed it up, she will not show him understanding and guide him but will tell him that his behaviour is ‘assaulty’ and ‘rapey’. There is a very good reason that these adjectives don’t really exist in the English langauge. Rape and assault are terrible crimes, they are well definded acts. A person cannot behave ‘rapey’. He or she either rapes someone or they don’t. What Laci is doing here is labelling every boy – because e-v-e-r-y boy is clumsy in the beginning – a rapist. She is telling girls that they have zero influence on the development of the relationship between them and the boy. All they can to do is sit there and judge the guy. Laci Green is robbing young women of their agency. In an age in which we have the chance to be equal partners she turns women into fixed objects around whom the men move, filled with fear of making a mistake. I have never seen anyone send out such a harmful message to young people.
Just what is the point of this? Does she not get enough attention from men her own age, that she feels the need to turn on teenage boys? I find this whole video – directed at adolescents – predatory and very much hope that I would be asked for my consent if she wanted to instruct children of mine. I would never give Laci Green that consent! Ths woman would not be allowed anywhere near my children.
These two say it all. This woman is dangerous for young minds.
