“Pussy is a new dick, ladies”

Pussy Riot is not down with the Donald. This much is clear in the Russian punk band’s new video “Straight Outta Vagina,” which celebrates female sexuality. More specifically, the power of the pussy.

“Does your vagina have a brand?” the group’s Nadya Tolokonnikova asks in the opening line of the song. A line which, according to The Guardian, inspired TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek to help produce the provocative, forward-thinking video. You’ll find guys in heels, inflatable ducks, bright blue pubes, basically everything you would expect from a Pussy Riot video aiming to bring down the patriarchy.

“The owner of vaginas is not some narcissistic stupid orange ape who’d claim that he could easily grab women by their pussies,” a description of the video reads. “The owner of vagina is a woman. Who wears her vag as a badge of honor.”

Artists Desi Mo and Leikeli47 join Tolokonnikova on the song, and in her fight against oppression. “Women were slaves of the world for centuries,” the description continues. “Oh bondage, up yours.”
