The Taiwanese animators at Next Media Animation want you to know that women have been serving in combat for years.
NMA has gained something of a cult following for its videos satirizing American political news (like this one). Here, NMA explains Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s recent decision to allow women to serve in combat roles, which the secretary made official at a Pentagon briefing on Thursday.
Warning: Although narrated by a woman, the video is kind of sexist. There are lots of bikinis, and a princess gown. It also depicts Daily Caller publisher Tucker Carlson, who criticized Panetta’s decision, getting attacked by bikini-clad female soldiers with pink guns. The animated Carlson does not appear to be in true danger, as they shoot whimsically at his feet.
