Defin­ing the Blurred Lines

India Today - - NET FLUX -

Robin Thicke’s song ‘ Blurred Lines’ is catchy but sex­ist. Af­ter all, the video fea­tures top­less women cou­pled with misog­y­nis­tic lyrics like ‘ Try to do­mes­ti­cate you’. In re­sponse, three women from the Univer­sity of Auck­land made a par­ody ver­sion called ‘ De­fined Lines’, fea­tur­ing men in their un­der­wear. How­ever, YouTube tem­po­rar­ily re­moved the video call­ing it ‘ in­ap­pro­pri­ate con­tent’. And show­ing half- naked women is ap­pro­pri­ate?
