Balance Ton Quoi

Post by AnonFan » Fri May 24, 2019 11:27 am

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure how much this has spread outside of the French-speaking world, but I thought I would share a recent mass-media song which is quite relevant to this forum. Don't worry if you don't speak French - the video has English translations the whole way through as subtitles.

In case you are not aware (again I don't know how this spreads outside of the French-speaking world), #balanceTonPorc is the French equivalent of the #MeToo movement . The song title, "balance ton quoi", is related to this expression.

Despite what she says in the video about how it would never be on the radio as her lyrics are not polite, I am happy to say that I first heard the song on the radio. So the message is being distributed. I won't say that the song is perfect, but I am happy to see something like this in the mass media.

In case the link doesn't work, search for "Angèle - Balance Ton Quoi"

that song is fun! gotta say, I was expecting it to be way more unpolite, but it was sweet - or maybe I'm just too rude hehehehe
Call me Celina. I've been a fan since 2007, and tried to enjoy the old forum since then too. Now that we have a forum for radfems/people who actually enjoy the comic! Hell yes! I'll call up all my buddies here!! Armageddon is coming.
