…and was angered at the sketch “Bizex”, please take a bit of time to report it to Granskningsnämnden.
For those of you who don’t know, this weeks pause-sketch featured the dansband “Bizex”. The main joke is about a man and a woman who meet, but since they are both homosexuals they decide to “swap” gender so that they can be together. When their sexuality “turns back” they thus “swap” genders again.
The sketch is oozing with cissexism and transphobia, and have been reported to granskningsnämnden a few times already.
Fifteen times to be more exact.
Which isn’t really a lot for a show that gathers 3.5 million people in front of the telly each Saturday.
If you want to watch the sketch, you can find it HERE.
I also took the liberty of translating the lyrics used.
We had met a few times at cafés And that evening she invited me to her home for tea (Earl Grey) I told her about my arousal for men And she told me she had been a lesbian since far behind But I got an idea that was rather bright And within a few weeks it was settled
We swapped gender with each other I became woman and she became man And together we became a couple Yes homosexuality (homo, homo) Can be handled rather discreetly (homo, homo) If you’re just woman and man
Then we were married in church before gods eyes She became husband and I her wife Then during the honeymoon something had happened Our sexualities had turned
(What did you do then?)
We swapped gender with each other I became man and she became woman And together we became a couple Yes heterosexuality (hetero, hetero) Can be handled rather discreetly (hetero, hetero) If you’re just woman and man
Yes take an evening with your scalpel And you’re done
The sketch is also joking about all the members in the band already having been married to each other. (Promiscuous bisexuals! Hilarious!)
Needless to say, this is pretty terrible. And I would greatly appreciate it if it could be reported further so that I (we) can at least get an apology.
