‘Feminist Boy’ video on avoiding MAGA male toxicity shows why the next generation is screwed

A video called “Feminist Boy” by radical leftist comedian Kristina Wong has gone viral once again using the pussy hats from the Women’s March and anti-MAGA imagery to help children reject toxic masculinity.

The cringe-inducing video debuted in Jan. 2020 and is from Wong’s online series called “Radical Cram School.” She promotes it to Asian American children between the ages of 6 to 12. It’s been called “Sesame Street for the resistance.” The videos seek to explore revolution, identities, and social justice through the use of comedy, community storytelling, and puppets.

The video features several young boys claiming to be “Feminist Boys.” One wears a muscle suit, another a MAGA cap, and one dons a “Make America Drunk Again” shirt. The video does somehow manage to make “sparkles” rhyme with “patriarchal.” It also uses catchy phrases such as “hyper-masculinity is ego fragility, empathetic inability, imbecility.”

While claiming to promote literacy, the series actually trains children to become anti-American zealots, radical revolutionaries, and devoted social justice warriors. According to The New American, Wong even admits that it is indoctrination.

Wong’s degree is in “Asian American Studies” and some posit that she is connected to the Communist Chinese Party. She has appeared on late-night shows on FX and Comedy Central.

“Asian American girls rarely see themselves in popular culture, let alone larger social justice movements and when girls can’t see themselves in the movement or as allies to other social movements, they may opt-out altogether,” Wong told NextShark. “Without further marginalizing those most affected by oppression, Radical Cram School gives young Asian American girls a space to process their experiences and learn how to be allies to other social movements.”

Her YouTube series covers topics such as transgenderism, the Japanese internment camps, Detroit activist Grace Lee Boggs, women’s suffrage, election to public office, gun control, illegal immigration, and gender identity. Created by Wong, director Jenessa Joffe, and producers Anna Michelle Wang and Theodore Chao, “Radical Cram School” is “geared towards kids of color, fans of comedy, activist communities, and parents and educators who strive to engage kids in conversations about identity and social justice.”

The first season of the series was lauded by the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) community and received the Audience Award at the Austin Asian American International Film Festival, as well as a nomination for Best Digital Series from the New York City Asian American International Film Festival.

The “Feminist Boy” video really went viral. “Watch me be an Asian man who plays leading roles,” a line in the lyrics to the video proclaims, “cuz it’s not just white dudes who can be heroes.”

“We co-produced this series not just for people like our daughter, but for everyone,” remarked Theodore Chao, a Harvard-trained professor who says he realized that his 6-year-old daughter and her friends had been internalizing “the racist and misogynistic rhetoric” surrounding the 2016 presidential election. “The videos are great ways to engage in difficult conversations about racism, misogyny, intersectionality, and resistance for young people.”

The consensus on Twitter is that the next generation is basically screwed but at least the video got more views than Biden’s scripted CNN town hall:
