Students Film Feminist Protest Porno Inside Columbia University Library

Columbia University’s Butler Library served as the backdrop for a pornographic feminist protest film released Sunday that supposedly aimed to “repulse” viewers, and included topless women kissing, smearing eggs on each other, smacking each other with riding crops, and licking chocolate off each other’s backs.

The film, titled INITIATIØN, aimed to explore “the rituals of American Ivy League secret societies, to the point of hysteria, highlighting our culture’s perception of female desire,” according to the caption on Purple TV, the website that premiered the video.

The three-minute film is intended to be “a feminist statement, meant to ‘showcase the ultimate hysteria state,’ and speak to the stigmatization and fetishization of women,” according to IvyGate’s Alexandra Svokos, who interviewed one of the film’s stars, Coco Young, a former model turned Columbia University student double majoring in art history and English literature.

Young explained the reason behind using the library as the scene for the video, saying: “Butler Library is particularly emblematic of the male-centricity at Columbia; there are, for example, only male authors’ names on the facade of the building, a historic point of protest.”

The film has an eerie sort of vibe. The young women writhe around surrounded by bookstacks in imagery that almost emulates some sort of ritual, and at one point it looks like they have a fake dead chicken inside their circle. The film jumps from scene to scene as the women pose in weird, yoga-inspired positions, kiss, and drag each other down long hallways. All the while, what sounds like gothic Latin choir music sung by children plays in the background.

The video included Columbia and Barnard College students and was filmed last November guerilla-style on “iPhones and a GoPro camera set up as a surveillance camera,” reported the New York Observer.

Young also told the New York Observer their intent in the pornographic nature of the video is to “repulse” viewers, not arouse them.

“Men get hooked because they want to see naked girls, but then we do gross things and are not attractive at all,” Young said.

The video has drawn mixed reactions, as demonstrated by comments posted on Columbia’s Bwog, an independent student-run website for campus news.

One commenter wrote: “Dude. Can I join? I’ll bring some more eggs. Organic AND cage free.”

Another comment criticized the film, stating, “… it’s a terrible film. Poorly shot, poorly executed, poorly edited. Being stuck at the library at some ungodly hour is depressing enough, this just makes it worse.”

    Not sure why feminists have to “whip it out” to prove something? Either topless, or they have to have giant vagina shirts, or hats. Are they under the impression they are only chests and crotches, nothing else? Must be because the left accepts sexual predator males as their leaders, the feminists just have to accept no one will watch their protest unless they get naked (PETA anyone).

      Make no mistake. The people who do this sort of thing are little more than sex-crazed libertines. They just use all the feminist rhetoric is as an excuse. Little has changed in 20 years.

    …and you wonder why the US is in fast track decline?

    ‘Common Core’ is a strategy for eliminating critical thinking and dumbing down our next generation to facilitate compliance.

    Our ignorant elected local officials are allowing it.

    So students are learning that Christianity is bad, our bad founding fathers, sex toys, deviation, global warming lies, Saul Alinsky, math is consensus, Muslim tolerance, Multi-culturalism, Political Correctness, taught to think like a powerless victim but encouraged to leave school to protest with OWS Marxist, anarchist idiots?

    No time for personal finance or the Federalist Papers? Of course not, the globalists forbid such information, it would expose the whole thing and that would lead to student riots.

    Lord knows the Americans couldn’t keep it, as Ben Franklin obviously had concern.

    I see not much has changed since I was an undergraduate at Columbia. Even 20 years ago, one had to be careful walking around the more remote corners of the Butler stacks lest one inadvertently run into a couple engaged in some amorous activities. The year I graduated, one student-published humor magazine even listed “sex in the stacks” as an important thing to experience before graduating, though neither I nor anyone in my social circle ever did.

    Apparently, the only thing that has changed is that sex in the stacks today gets filmed!

    These students are the most privileged on the planet by virtue of attending a top elite university. The world is their oyster. And yet, despite that tremendous opportunity, they choose a highly self-indulgent path and create nonsense such as this. This is what educational decline looks like.

    A chicken’s fine, but not a rooster. I don’t want to see another c0ck in there.
