Cock Fight


In 1998 Mexican artist Joshua Okon made a video called Cock Fight, featuring two young women uttering some particularly creative profanities.  Their slurs and behaviour emulate some of the insults and dirty jokes on occasion directed at women.  But Cock Fight turns this problematic conduct on its head, with the female protagonists reclaiming bad language and aggressive posturing and transforming it into an oddly entertaining song and dance routine.
