T.a.T.u-All The Things She Said and Not Gonna Get Us.
Live at the MTV Movie Awards

For the male gaze to work, it requires men. The genius of tatu dyking out is that they are not directed to men, their gaze is to each other, their innocence is amusing, and their politics are suspect. The lust that boys show for them seems not to matter a whit. They are gender theory having fun, and the rumours about Jenna Jameson tounging Britney’s quim are as irrelevant as the pseudo naughtiness of Xtina. The two gals from Russia mocked both of them into submission. All of this came to a head at tonights MTV Movie Awards, where their post-queer spectacle reached amazing new heights. 137 girls in school girl uniforms stormed the stage some grand sapphic revolution. They danced and stripped and made out, and it was a bacchanal, but a bacchanal that suggested two things: one; that their was no need for boys, and two that the youth were taking over in a new sexual revolution directed towards their own pleasure. They may be accused of being fake but looking at them you wished happiness, like you would on any young and handsome revolutionary, on the way to the struggles.
