Stop all broadcasting and promotion of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines"

    1. Petition by

      The Musogyny Project

Despite public outcry against the blatant misogyny and rape apology in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", ft. Pharrell Williams and T.I., the BBC continues to play the song on radio and broadcast the music video, and has hosted Thicke on "BBC Breakfast" and "The Graham Norton Show." Demand that the BBC put women's rights and safety above ratings, and tell them it's not acceptable to promote the normalisation of rape culture on the airwaves.

      Have seen quite a few videos in my lifetime and I'm a young 43. I was a teenager in the 1980's when there were plenty of women in music videos. The difference is women were more empowered in the 1980's and of course we didn't have the lack of privacy of the current social media culture. Can honestly say I've never seen a more disgusting video (or one of the few) that truly turns my stomach. Vile lyrics. And the fact that Robin Thicke is trying to promote himself or turn himself into a celebrity out of sheer exploitation of women is sickening. The fact that some women actually agreed to be in this video is sad, because it shows what sort of culture they are surrounded by where women are facing 24/7 objectification. People need to stand up and deal with this crap because if they don't it will only get worse.

      Inciting that 'rape is fine' if he wants it. He might as well call it no means yes

      Objectification of women and promotion of rape. Shameful and should not be broadcast anywhere.

      What kind of role model is this for kids especially? Its straightup a tasteless porno vid that distorts both men & womens minds and promotes unhealthy attitudes & unrealistic expectations of sexuality - in the real world. Regardleds, its simply not the right outlet to propagate that portrayal of unhealthiness.
