Coco Rosie – Child Bride

 

This is my wedding night. So it would seem. Now, you can think as you wish, but this is some very good acting for a child her age. And the singer’s voice fits the actress perfectly. The big eyebrows, the gap between her teeth, the innocent eyes: All things typically associated with kids her age. But look at her skin: Rather European, isn’t it? Interesting… Off she goes with her parents. To the guy with the black hat. The muzzle she’s wearing is by the way the perfect symbol for girls having to go through this type of thing. Watch any documentary about child marriages in India and you’ll instantly know what is implied here. You’re the bride, but never the star. The bride, but never in control. As she walks away from her parents, another important detail: Her mother wearing the exact same muzzle. It reminds me of that time I asked my father if, this time, we could go to a women-friendly country during the holidays, to which he shockingly replied: “You have got be kidding me! You’ve just excluded three fourths of the world.” Ah yes, the eternal Trump or Clinton-issue. Go for the guy who isn’t really suited for the job, or for the person who is perhaps a bit more suited, but doesn’t have a penis? Hmm… Tricky. Oh shit. I just made this a political issue, didn’t I? And a not so funny one too. Cause some things aren’t funny.
