This is a couple years ago...but I just came across it now.

What do you think of the show? More advanced progressively for being able to do such a show, or are things going more backwards because of such a show?

Great way to get the feminazis to the barricades.

I think that was the interesting thing about it. The feminist movement in Denmark, who actually watched the show, SEEMED to be okay with it.

Internationally though, many people reacted extremely negative to it, but it seemed that very few if any of the international journalists had even watched the show at all, or knew anything about it.

That bald guy is Thomas Blachman, he's the referee for the Danish 'Idols' equivalent. He thinks he is an artist, so the show is supposed to be provocative in an artsy kind of way, which makes it difficult for Danes to be truly upset about it.

That said, there aren't that many taboos in Denmark.

They had a small segment of the Swedish reaction to it, and it was quite negative. Granted it was a short segment to Feminist Swedish women who probably hadn't watched it.

But, it made me think, is the Feminist movement in Sweden quite a bit different, that they would be more aghast by it?

Denmark's feminist seemed to be fine with it.

I think I would look at it once or twice out of curiosity, then I would probably not watch it again... I dont see anything intrinsecally wrong with the show, tho...

They'd most certainly be open to doing something like this on TV where I live. It would most certainly spark a strong debate. But they'd still do it.

While watching the video, I was thinking that if they did that here, there would certainly be a follow-up with nude men at some point.

And then I saw later in the video that the Danes did that too!

it's all going in circles

from conservative prudish attitudes of don't show your breasts --to--> show your breasts and screw conservative attitude --to--> cover up this is offensive because you're being exploited --to--> don't show anything because you need to cover up

you can thank the feminazis and those liberals that claim that nudity should be ok but cover up because you will be exploited, they're taking us back

notice how in the 60's women would not show their navels, then in the 70's the sexual revolution led women to show their navels and now we have feminazi scum telling women to not show their navels!

Same here. It's interesting for a few shows, but I think overall the show was the men complimenting nude women, and they seemed to have a vast array of very regular women as well. It would wear thin after awhile.
