Little Game

Little Game was Benny’s debut single and the music video offers a dark alternative pop narrative on gender roles and gender equality. The video demonstrates the skewed enforcement of falling into masculine and feminine archetypes.

  1. I made a contribution… Gosh :)

    also, Only Me: Josh is Bi (or was that Pan) s*xual so he probably derives twice as much pleasure from the video than the rest of us.

    1. Josh identifies as pan. Really interesting exploration of gender norms, though; I think the lad is only 15 but Tumblr seems to like it rather a lot. Blue and pink has only been a thing for the last few decades. We’re living in a society where gender norms are reinforced strongly yet it isn’t as clear cut as that.

  2. I am old, but thanks to Josh I’m learning how some people feel so different inside. I always identified as a male, but it’s apparent not everyone does, and vise versa. Thank you for teaching me. :)

  3. The best art is so visually appealing and aesthetically well executed that it can completely entertain without any other considerations for deeper meaning – this breaks my heart given certain recent and historic occurrences concerning gender variances and how western “civilization” appears to be conditioning children to respond to same.

    RONIN SHIMIZU DID NOT HAVE TO DIE!

    Thanks Josh! – it would be VERY unrealistic of me to always expect happy happy feels…

  4. Those were the days my friend
    We thought they’d never end
    We’d sing and dance forever and a day
    We’d live the life we choose
    We’d fight and never lose
    For we were young and sure to have our way.

  5. As interesting as this video is, I prefer Boys Will Be Boys immediately afterward.

    The comments for it are interesting as well.
