Saturday Vids: Jenna Marbles

My friend is obsessed with the YouTube star Jenna Marbles, and forced me to watch about fifteen of her videos in one sitting. At first, I was skeptical. I usually don’t find YouTube performers all that funny. But there’s just something about Jenna Marbles. Is she feminist? I mean…meh. What I do know about her latest video is that the blatant sarcasm mixed with gender commentary had me laughing, and that’s good enough for me.

[WARNING: this video contains profanity, sexual references and all that fucking shit]

    No, she’s not a feminist, she hates feminists: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ7wT4CUprQ

    I’d never heard of her before but watching this and other videos of hers, I have to say I really like her. She’s very funny and original and I like that she’s comfortable in her skin and able to laugh at herself.

    yeah @Anna I saw that and obviously I think she’s wrong, but she also reminds me a lot of girls I know who really support feminism and feminist values (as evidenced by this video) but are really just confused about what the movement is about and are working from stereotypes.

    I disagree. I think she hits the nail right on the head when she says that demanding equality while expecting the guy to pick up the date bill is a double standard. Her views are pretty much in line with Feminism- it’s just that not everyone chooses to use that word, which I think is perfectly fine.

    I love Jenna Marbles (and her little dogs, too).

    Yeah…the right combination of Sarcasm and real life drama can make you crack up! We did! Thanks for the post..Keep blogging!

    @Sara, of course it’s a double standard. But even if some of her views seem feminist, she doesn’t define herself as a feminist, so why should anyone else do that for her?

    Feminist or not, some of her videos are funny as hell.

    I never understood the importance of defining oneself as a feminist. To me, Feminism is less about the word and more about the actions, the views, awareness, and inclusiveness. For a woman to claim she wants equal rights, she may as well define herself as a HUMANist. But really, in the end “Feminist” is just a word- It means nothing without the views and actions to back it up, yet the views and actions can mean EVERYTHING whether “Feminist” is slapped on as a label or not.

    Julie- I’m so glad I literally made you sit down and watch Jenna Marbles Videos!

    Anna- I think she is hilarious and shouldn’t be taken so seriously. I agree with her in that video “girls who piss me off” that there is a huge and very blurred line, for example, on a first date. On the fbomb, we talk about how we want equal rights and that there are so many different and terrible prejudices against women. It goes for men too though, how come they have to pay for the meal and if we want to be treated equally, why do some women get so offended when the man doesn’t pay for the whole meal? It doesn’t make much sense, but I definitely wouldn’t call Jenna anti-feminist, just a little confused.

    Sara- I completely agree, I don’t call myself a feminist because I don’t find the need to do so. It’s just a title and not nearly as important as one’s actual actions.

    seems like she’s been with a fuckload of assholes or maybe I missed the point. Meh….
