Feministiskt initiativ : Feminister gör det bättre / Feminists do it better - (2009) :70 (Sweden)

Feministiskt initiativ (Feminist initiative political party) began a campaign last week with the message: feminists have better sex. Over a thousand people have already joined the facebook fan page, and debate is raging in the newspaper where Elin Grelsson, linguist, suggest that the campaign makes women feel guilty , and that it is vague to what it actually means, with its buttons and flyers and a commercial that is made up of various Hollywood scenes that depict "shoddy gender sex" (sunkigt könsrollssex).

Gudrun Schyman, the FI party leader posted an article at Newsmill: "happiness is relationships without reservation", stating this leads to better sex. The idea for the campaign stems from research that shows that in relationships where partners were on an equal footing, their sexlife was better.

The film has been edited together by members of FI. Am I the only one wondering if these clever politicians remembered to secure the rights for all the clips?

And of course the video on YouTube is already removed.

Perhaps I was right in that they forgot to secure the rights*. Or was it the amount of skin that got it pulled?

* honestly can't remember if political advertisements have a different set of rules or not, but doubt they can do anything without securing rights.

Where was the youtube link? Does it state that the user pulled it or did someone report it?

Andromeda: This was the link to the YouTube page:
"This video has been removed due to terms of use violation"

Ah, well the it could be either the nudity or the (possible) copyright infringement.

My bet is on the nudity...

I won the bet - the video was removed by Youtube (so says Gudrun Schyman herself in Expressen) - due to nudity.
Translation -

The film (which has now been removed by YouTube) contained sex scenes with both homosexual as heterosexual couples, making Grelsson's criticism that the sex is just about heterosex incomprehensible.
