I don't give a shit that the atrocious ' Vogue Empower' video was written and directed by a man. But mannnnn it is pretentious like fuckkkkk and not worth even 10 seconds of my time. All i saw was good black and white imagery and lighting. Im so glad im not the only one who found it to be full of shit. Pseudo feministic shit created to go viral and make some money.
Zero insights and genuine emotions in that one. ZERO.
Women who share this streotypical crap video and talk about feeling 'empowered', should really introspect into knowing what being truly empowered is.
Actually this is what happens when a magazine that makes its money out of objectifying women, attempts to pretend to be the voice of women. The video infact trivialises being a woman to being a male fantasy of a 'sex and the city' caricature. I'm not even taking into account that this video is purely about privileged women and has zero insights into being a woman from other strata - but even that isn't represented in an honest light with any genuine empathy or understanding. Thanks to some naive women who see this video as empowering today chivalry is also seen as chauvinism. It is women who will be fed warped perspectives of 'feminism' by videos like these that will grow up to have no idea of what being a woman is except the ideas that are instilled in them by media - women who look at men only as the enemy and in their own minds replace genuine chivalry and well intentioned concern also with chauvinism.
