100 years of feminist progress has finally triumphed, giving us LMFAO—sweaty oiled up mainstream objectification of men. I work out:

Yes, you know you’re gettinold when you hear about frat boy party songs six months later through fourth round cover videos.


There’s only two ways to get the song out of your head. One, shuffle:

Two, this.

  3. Westley Anson says:

    Me too! Why can't the media or someone "objectify" me for once? hahaha!

  4. I love LMFAO…so funny! How had you not heard this yet?

    Ummm… except that it's not sexy. It's hysterically funny, but not sexy. :oP

    Seriously? I'm straight, but I'd shuffle that.

    I'm too cool for frat boy party parades.

    Or, so I thought.

    'Fraid so. That video's got everything.

  11. elephantjournal says:

    Right, nothing sex-related about it.

  12. Katherine says:

    See, that's the difference right there. No marketing campaign has spent as much time catering to the female libido, so no one understands it. LOL!

    LMFAO indeed….. this song makes me smile every time, the video drives the point home. An homage to men, who, like my last boyfriend (proudly wearing his Speedo to the pool at age 53….) love to strut their stuff and preen their own feathers. Yes, please, let's "objectify" them (if you can't be a (role) model, you can serve as a warning….) Alexa M.

    Gabriel Hogan You can help by not complaining and expell it around you by wjat you suppport with your money and energy, que quearse mae !

    Leslie Kay I don't like the tone of this headline. To me it is implying that actual objectification and over-sexualization of women in our society is not something we should complain about.

    # Leslie, you're onto me. ~ Waylon.

    What's to understand? Humor and outrageousness and skin and danceable music = hot, whether straight, male, GLBTQ, female…whatever.

    We know we're making cultural progress when the objectifier becomes objectified. This is the only language our culture has for gender. Loving the hyper-sexualized, gross mainstreamed objectification Satire.
