VIDEO: “Binders Full O Bitches,” Featuring Haviland Stillwell As An “NRA Bitch”

The comedic team at Forty-Seven Percent Records, a division of Happy Panda Productions, have put together a catchy Black Romney video entitled “Black Romney: Binders Full O Bitches” in which Romney expresses his disinterest in a variety of human beings, such as the unemployed and single mothers.  Created by the very funny Deborah S. Craig and starring Burl Moseley, this biting piece of political satire also features your favorite Out Lesbian Actress Haviland Stillwell, star of Unicorn Plan-It and lots of other things, like your pants. She dances and sings along with a variety of other females. I don’t know, I think you might really enjoy it! See for yourself:

    • The same sex couple in the video is real married couple Jared and Jeffrey Marshek Gertner and one half of a same sex couple, actress Amanda Deibert is married to illustrator Cat Staggs and plays Anne Romney.

  1. Erm..I know this is supposed to be funny…and I get it, I swear, I get all the jokes (haha). BUT, I’m still super uncomfortable with the handsy-ness that he displays with all the ladies in the video. So many eeks.

    I just can’t… with the word bitches over and over again coming out of his mouth (and before you say it–I SWEAR that I get it.) :(

  2. It seems to me like Romney should’ve been a white guy. Hear me out, now, it’s because non-fictional Romney is so white privileged, and maintaining that is such an overt part of his platform. I don’t know though. Feel free to chew me out if I’m wrong or being problematic.

  3. I get where this was coming from, I get the intention, and I get that the repetition of “bitch” was part of the schtick (despite it being irritating), but I’m going to go on my soapbox here and rant:

    I CANNOT FUCKING STAND THE EXPRESSION “SUCK MY DICK”. IT IS INHERENTLY CHAUVINISTIC AND PATRIARCHAL, AND I CONSIDER IT TO BE HOMOPHOBIC WHEN DIRECTED TOWARDS OTHER MALES. I. Don’t. Care. that that’s the point. It’s repulsive and I would even consider it to be triggering. It’s just not ever funny, not even when people without penises use it as a way to show superiority in an ironic sense. Just. No. Fuck you, having a specific genital configuration does not promote you or make someone inferior to you, and using it as an acknowledgement of that power disparity makes me sick.

    • I feel ya on that, and yet I find myself using the phrase all. the. time. to men, which horrifies and scandalizes people. I am an extremely femme-presenting queer lady who was socialized as a girl and born with a vagina and no penis. I do like to use a strap-on sometimes?, but I doubt that comes to mind for many people when it comes out of my mouth.
      Can someone comment on this? I really don’t know how I feel about my use of it, because it seriously just COMES OUT OF MY MOUTH WITHOUT ME THINKING ABOUT IT. When I say it, the men are totally silenced and sort of back up with their tails between their legs for a minute. It feels both gross and empowering, in a certain sense, when I wield it against them. But I am open to being argued into the belief that it’s an unsalvageably problematic usage, and I should train myself to stop. I just feel like–I’ve heard men hurl it at me and people like me so many times that it feels awesomely subversive to throw it back and watch the confusion and disgust take over their faces.

      • My GF says it all the time. Truly whenever I hear it from a woman, the only though that comes to my mind is “but..do you have a…huh??” Then I move on.

        It’s like if that’s something that just comes out of your mouth naturally (I call people, places, and things all kinds of bitches all the time and I can’t stop) then say it! Just don’t do it for shock value because then you look stupid.

        I think people put to much meaning on words.

        BFD if you ask me.

        I think the video’s hilarious.
