PINK 01:03
PINK They got tired of the shit they had to take every day. "Might be a man's world but it's time we had our say." The explosions were timed. The night of the referendum. The night the autocrat thought he might have a chance "I need a third term. Just like my hero, FDR." Living life under martial law. Not much else to lose. We saw pink explode into the air as the paint bombs released miles (and miles) of color to contrast the monochrome.
2.
WAR 00:52
"This means war!" the autocrat crowed. He couldn't comprehend what the pink bombs meant. "We're under attack! It's a terrorist threat! Give me that pen! Gotta make it end! Repeat after me: It's a terrorist threat."
3.
RED 01:59
RED They're seeing red. Gonna have a field day. Too many generations hearing the same old shit: "Grow up and have babies. You need a man in this life. No need for thinking. It's a man's world." Thanks for the cars. Thanks for the screens. Thanks for the clear-cuts and shitty magazines. Thanks for the torture. Thanks for the war. Stuffed with bread & circuses (can't take anymore)."
4.
ACTUALLY 01:23
ACTUALLY "Well, actually ... just shut the fuck up," she said behind the pink mask, "that terror you feel is good." Fatigued from excuses for generations of abuse, like it's some grand conspiracy to keep men underfoot. "Well, actually ... just shut the fuck up," she said behind the pink mask, "that terror you feel is good. You had your chances again and again but it's a new militance. Your feeble grasp on power is about to end."
5.
NOPE 02:14
NOPE "We don't think so. Get the point? Hands off our bodies. You can't legislate your way out of this. We don't think so. We spent our best years raising you and then you pay us back by pulling your umbilical cord. We don't think so. We're tired of the interruptions. We're tired of the credit-taking. We're tired of the gas-lighting. We don't think so. This time we're really rising up. This time we're gonna pull the trigger. This time you'll be the ones feeling shamed. We don't think so."
6.
AVALANCHE 01:29
AVALANCHE The pink bombs were a start to an unforgiving war. Soon there was an avalanche from an unforgiving source. No peaceful marches, online petitions. Too fucking sick of the bloody war on women. You should have seen it. It was a bloodbath, reminiscent of the French Revolution. Autocrats, with their pockets lined with cash. Wife-beaters, with their flaccid micro-dicks.
7.
TRIGGER 01:45
TRIGGER "Don't pull the trigger. Don't pull the trigger. Don't pull the trigger. Don't pull the trigger on me. I don't understand this. What did I do to deserve it? I just felt you belonged in your place, that's all. How could I have known? You didn't feel good in your role? Well, that's fucking news to me but you've made your mind up, I see ... don't pull the trigger. Don't pull the trigger. Don't pull the trigger. Please don't pull the trigger on me."
8.
OVER 01:56
OVER "It's over. The bad guys lost. They never stood a fucking chance once we all fought as one. It's over. The autocrat and his men are dead but we've gotta stay vigilant. It could happen again. It's over, but then again, we've said it before. We got complacent when we thought we had won. We let the snake in the grass grow warm. It's over? It's the question we may have to answer again. That's the price we have hanging over our heads. When the war is over, the real work begins. Is it over? Is it over? Is it really ever over?"
