Allegedly to draw attention to the issue of female genital mutilation.  She cut off the cake's clitoris and stuck it in the cake's mouth...?

The cake is black on the outside and red on the inside, representing blood.  What's more, the cake is designed to scream as you cut it.

What the f**k??

Someone assumed that this was a good idea and that someone probably deserves to be fired for being a moron.

This has all been very amusing. Especially once the African-Swedish association (yes, there is such a thing) called for her resignation.

Seriously though, I'd be involved in something like that.  Nobody seriously thinks any of these people would actually carve up a black person do they?  I didn't watch the video more than a few seconds because it was boring, but did they have no real black people there?  That would have helped.  Attention does need to be brought to the female genital mutilation issue, but this won't do a great job of it because of all the "offended" people out there calling for this chicks head.

Apparently the fellow playing the face of the woman (and the artist who made the cake) is a black fellow.

I'm really not seeing the outrage here.  The fake outrage from the usual suspects is amusing though.

Indeed; true.  And the Asian woman in this ad is Asian, too.  I have no idea how that makes it more acceptable...

The cake representing a black woman isn't really a problem. The issue is that the minister or her staff  thought it a good idea to make a cake that screamed and bled when you ate it. It's frankly just astonishingly bizarre.

Well apparently it's supposed to be performance art, but still bizarre that she'd choose to participate in it...

Bizarre?  Of course, that seems to be the point.  If they handed out pamphlets about female genital mutilation, nobody would be talking about it today.  Of course we're not talking about anyway, mainly because everybody wants to be the first to be offended.

I think the most bizarre aspect of the cake video is that it associates female genital mutilation with (implied) cannibalism.

Consuming human genitals for fun? Reminds me of something:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armin_Meiwes

Why didn't they throw in some incest while they were at it?


I'm far from being outraged... it's more wonder and astonishment how anyone could have assumed this would actually be a good idea. Wink

This video is  going to be at its most excellent in 2050 or so when it's context is long forgotten.

Well, at least it made the media talk about mutilation of African girls. Even if it was in a somewhat odd context.

What? Read the background story. The minister or her staff didn't make the cake, she was invited to an art exubition by a black artist where the cake was one of the art pieces. Of course it's bizarre, but that's art unfortunatley. If you're the Minister of Culture you have to attend these sort of freak shows, it's part of the job.

What is truly outragous is tax-payer money funding this crap.

Well not personally, more likley some staff members on the Department of Culture. (Which might very well be the least useful department out there since the Department of Integration and Gender Equality was scrapped.)
