No more sexist than a boy band or that chiselled fit all male operatic group (cant think of their name). Whats your point. Not all sexism is bad

Sexism is bad, just like racism.

Which sexes play in a musical group has nothing to do with sexism.

This has nothing to do with sexism. It is about SEXUALITY. There are sad, frigid little prudes out there who think that any celebration of sexuality and sensuality is some kind of "sin". The right-wing prudes, while totalitarian and fascistic, are at least honest enough to use the word "sin". The left-wingers, in addition to their totalitarian, fascistic attitudes, are also so dishonest that they call it "sexist".

Something is unusual in that video - 420 seats, all of them empty.

Yes, they probably discriminated against one gender to form that group, and in addition to excluding males, they excluded the old, the obese, and the unattractive within the female population. Still, not an example of evil discrimination - other musicians are still free to play their music.

No.

Since there wasn't a spot for it, and I gotta write it out manually. Some poll... :P

I think if they were all in bikinis it would be sexist.

Not much sexist about that, except the exclusion of males.

They are also excluding non-asians, if I saw that right.
