I Saw Your Boobs

By now you’ve probably heard about the boobs song Seth MacFarlane sang on the night of the Oscars. He sang about all the times he had seen certain actresses boobs in different movies throughout the years.

Most of the movies movies Seth sang about were not not teen exploitation movies. The women in these movies were not undressing to please the men in the audience-they were trying to do their jobs. But, obviously Seth did not see it this way and he felt the need to share it with everyone.

It seems to me that there were many variations of misogyny scattered throughout the whole night. MacFarlane said the movie “Django Unchanined” was about “the story of a man fighting back to get his woman who has been subjected to unthinkable violence,or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a
date movie.”

To me, violence against women is NOTHING to ever joke about. I’ve seen domestic violence firsthand. I know the damaging effects it can have on people and ultimately society. It’s not funny.

I’m not here to slam Seth MacFarlane or his jokes. He is most certainly not the first person to make inappropriate jokes about women. But, I have to say that as long as we keep making jokes about violence against women, society as a whole will miss how serious this issue really is.

If you watched the Oscars what did you think of Seth’s jokes? Were they sexist?

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    1. Thank you! I totally agree. I need to work on the picture side of things. I get so caught up in writing I often forget to put in pictures. Thanks for reading!
