A list of self affirmations:
Being gendered correctly is not my job, responsibility, or duty - therefore, being misgendered is not my fault
No piece of clothing, jewelry, or makeup inherently gendered: I can wear whatever I want and still be performing my gender
Having to navigate binary gatekeeping systems to alter my body does not make me any less non-binary
Feeling the need to alter my body does not make me any less non-binary
I will celebrate my gender even in the face of harassment, erasure, and self-doubt
There is no right or wrong way to do or be a gender
I am worthy of love and respect, not despite, but because of my gender
I will love myself and my gender

what’s funny about this if it were the other way round and a guy dancing with 3 naked/showering girls there would be a massive uproar about it

You know what funny is almost every single music video these days has females dancing half naked in it and no one actually bats an eye. It’s a social norm now. However when Marina does the opposite she has people call her a hypocrite. Since when are men above being objectified? It’s almost like getting a glimpse of what women have to go through everyday. Not nice is it.

but you dont fight sexism by being a sexist yourself……you think thats gonna teach them???

Marina created an alter ego - Electra Heart. She objectifies men through this alter ego to explore women’s roles in societies and pop culture. Electra Heart is all about being the archetypes of the sexual female and the archetypes of the bitch -pretty, sexually powerful, seductive, productive, etc.
So she isn’t really saying ‘I’m bored of being objectified, lets objectify someone else for a change’.
She’s saying ‘look what happens when the men are naked and I’m clothed. Look at how much power that gives me, how much control.” She uses the established norm of objectifying girls vs the casualness of objectifying men to point out its stupidity.
She’s trying to point out the differences between players and sluts, men with game vs girls who can’t keep their legs shut. Its about the double standard.
This is one clip from a video for one song from an entire album. The song explores female sexuality, and the archetypes of being a ‘home wrecker’. The rest of the album goes on to explore these themes in deeper ways, looking at the negative and positive.

^THAT COMMENTARY BLESS

This is perfect and I love whoever took the time to write that marina is perfect and beautiful and she’s just wonderful

Electra Heart is based on the Electra complex, a theory developed by Sigmund Freud about psycho sexual development. The Electra complex is the female version of the Oedipus complex, and both are based on Greek mythology. According to the 1982 Concise Encyclopedia of Psychiatry, the Oedipus complex is explained as follows; “Oedipus… who had been abandoned by his parents, in his wanderings came to Thebes at a time when the Theban sphinx… was demanding of each passer-by the answer to the riddle she had learnt…” it goes on to explain how she would kill anyone who answered wrong, however Oedipus got the answer right. “Oedipus entered Thebes, killed the King and married the Queen, Jocasta… not knowing that they were his own parents.” The Electra complex is derivative of a similar Greek myth, whereby Electra’s mother, Clytemnestra, killed her husband, Agamemnon, upon his return from Troy. Electra became furious at her mother, and persuaded her brother, Orestes to kill Clytemnestra in revenge. Freud based a theory on these myths, that all children developed their id, ego, super ego and sex drive in the early stages of life. This happens in five stages and if a child fixates (gets stuck) on one stage, it has an affect on the rest of their life. 
The Oedipus and Electra complexes are the internal battles that a child faces during the third “Phallic” stage, when they are roughly 3-6 years old. During this time, a boy will start to subconsciously try to compete with his father for sexual possession of his mother, and vice versa in girls. In normal psychosexual development, the children will accept that they cannot compete with their parents, and will then move onto the Latency stage. However, if they do not resolve their Oedipus or Electra complexes, this has an effect on the way they behave when forming relationships and dealing with social situations. If the boy fixates on the Phallic stage, he becomes over-ambitious, expresses aggressive tendencies, and is often very full of himself. 
If the Electra complex, (previously referred to as the feminine Oedipus attitude), is not resolved in girls, this causes the girl to develop “penis envy,” thus the girl strives to dominate men, which she does by being either overly seductive, or overly submissive. 
Electra Heart is based on the story of a girl whose Electra complex has been left unresolved and she grows up to strive to dominate men through being sexually active. She hides her emotions by not allowing herself to form attachments to anyone, as shown in the song How to be a Heart Breaker. The theme also shows itself in songs such as Starring Role, in the line “You like my dad, you get on well / I send my best regards from hell.” Songs like Homewrecker, Electra Heart, Power and Control, Hypocrates, Primadonnaand Bubblegum Bitch, are the strongest show cases of the effect a Phallic fixation can have on a person. Marina explores the possible implications that the attitude can have on the way a girl handles her emotions, a shown in Teen Idle, and how her future relationships are effected, such as in the song Radioactive and its music video. 
The music video for the song Electra Heart, shows her alter ego breaking free from her confinements, and thus moving on from her Phallic stage, however hard it may be for her. This is also symbolic of Marina leaving behind her exploration of the psychosexual development theory that was created and tested by Sigmund Freud.
Although the theory Freud created of psychosexual development, (and thus the Oedipus and Electra complexes), has since been disproved, Marina shows through her songs on the album Electra Heart how the implications, although not linked to the theory, are still very much present in social society. She tops off the album with the song Sex Yeah, which sums up how society views women and the roles that they play. 
Bottom line is, you can’t just base your opinion on her from her singles without delving deep into the meaning behind them. She is showing the world that we are a bunch of fucked up people that need to take a step back and assess the way we treat people based on stereotypes. If you don’t think that all of that is the most wonderfully intelligent thing you’ve ever heard in your whole life - the way that something as complicated as the works of Sigmund mother fucking Freud is explained in a single bubblegum pop album - then you are wrong and should think again.
