Video: best pro-choice Blurred Lines cover EVER

OK. this video may be the only pro-choice version of Robin Thicke’s highly problematic Blurred Lines music video. But if there were more out there, this one would still be one of the best! It’s created by Full Frontal Freedom, which describes itself as “a coalition of independent artists and media folks – who want to use our talents to promote civic engagement.” The very funny lyrics, which were amazingly provided on the Youtube page, are after the jump.
Lyrics:
“Womens Rights”
Wendy Davis stood up
Wendy Davis stood up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

[verse 1]
No you cant stop our gallery shouts
Or lock us out with this bill you tout
Texas prizes freedom
and Texans value rights
We’ve got women’s back in the fight

[Pre-chorus]
Well she was getting close, called out on 3 infractions
The leaders faked the vote, got busted in the action
You’d like the chamber vacant
Let her speak!
When your cheatings blatant
Let her speak!
Can’t trust these men to make it
and you can’t…

[Chorus]
…can’t silence us with women’s rights.
won’t sit and take it
won’t tolerate it
Can’t legislate it

these bills are dangerous
You say they save us
Your deceit amazes
instead they claim us
Cause these are women’s rights

The Right Wing hates it
Come and take It
Can’t even say it
And no we won’t yield
We’ll stand for hours
Aint gonna cower
C’mon Test our voting power

[verse 2]
What about this seems fair
and how’s it that you don’t care
20 weeks already rare

What about Roe vs Wade
Dewhurst and Perry
Hey, hey, hey
We miss Ann Richards
Hey, hey, hey
What rhymes with Richards?
Hey, hey, hey

[Pre-chorus]
Well she was getting close, called out on 3 infractions
The leaders faked the vote, got busted in the action
You’d like the chamber vacant
Let her speak!
When your cheatings blatant
Let her speak!
Can’t trust these men to make it
and you can’t…

[Chorus]
can’t silence us with women’s rights.
won’t sit and take it
won’t tolerate it
Can’t legislate it

these bills are dangerous
You say they save us
Your deceit amazes
instead they claim us
Cause these are women’s rights

The Right Wing hates it
Come and take It
Can’t even say it
And no we won’t yield
We’ll stand for hours
Aint gonna cower
C’mon Test our voting power

[Verse 3 - "The Rap"]
Closing clinics will impact you
Dropping down to five from forty-two
Yo, El Paso drive for hours boo
Yeah, maybe its easy for a rich fool
Hardship on the rest of us aint so cool
Stuff like this turn this red state blue
If its all for health, why do docs disdain
Experts from ACOG even calls it a shame
What about that girl raped in pain or when her
baby daddy and her daddy one in the same
Zaffirini, Van de Putte, and Wendy Davis,
At least the Democrats know what a rape kit is
And Perry eyeing Penn Avenue
Sprinting to the right, he broke some rules
Now, Wisconsin, Carolina and Ohio joined the duel
But Nothin beats Laudenberg; she crazy fool
Shake thing up, get down, get up

    A group of awesome folks in Halifax created this pro-consent video in response to Blurred Lines. I’m loving all of these video responses.. Clever, sexy, and feminist. It’s called Ask First. Thought readers might like it. http://vimeo.com/70304632
