Benny—Little Game

Hush boy, hush boy don’t say a word

Throw on your jersey, no one gets hurt

Hush girl, hush girl, just bat your eyes

Play our little game, play our little game

This video is pretty powerful. Not to mention it was a teenager who came up with the whole thing. Most of the time I’m not all that into music videos, but this is definitely worth watching.

  1. Love it! Thanks for sharing. Seeing the young kids in my family (cousins, nieces/nephews) get surrounded by color- and gender- coded messages from such a young age, we need to let kids know it’s okay to explore.

    1. I came across this video on (of course) tumblr 😛

      It honestly freaks me out how rigidly we force small children into these roles before they can even sit up on their own. And it also freaks me out that, for most of my life, I didn’t see anything wrong with it.
