And a comment in The Guardian from a TAB supporter said it all

If you’re upset by two men or women getting married, don’t go to a gay wedding. They probably won’t invite you anyway. If two men or women kissing,hugging,holding hands, etc etc, upsets you,don’t fucking look! Keep your head down and keep walking like the hate filled coward that you are

Oppressed Majority: the film about a world run by women that went viral

Reblogged from The Guardian

Eléonore Pourriat’s short film imagines how a man might experience a sexual assault in a matriarchal society. ‘I wanted it to be not so realistic but frightening,’ she says

Have you seen the film Oppressed Majority (Majorité Opprimée)? In less than a week since its director Eléonore Pourriat uploaded it to YouTube, the version with English subtitles has been watched over 2.3m times – and rising. The 10-minute film tells the story of Pierre, an ordinary guy, on an ordinary day, in an unnamed French town. But something is different in Pierre’s world. Women are in charge. They run around barechested – hey, it’s hot! – piss in an alley, and offer sexual favours to Pierre when he is stuck at a red light. (He’s riding a bike, so his lack of physical barriers provides an opportunity if not a provocation.) Events culminate when Pierre is sexually assaulted at knifepoint. Inevitably, the police officer who takes Pierre’s statement is female. She raises an eyebrow, but only to check for accuracy: “She pinched my testicles … then she took my penis in her mouth and bit it”?
