The title of the play gives it away. Blurred Lines at The Shed is a sharp, punchy look at gender politics in Britain today. It's a bright, exciting production that combines spoken word and music, but its claim to "dissect what it means to be a woman today" is highly questionable.
By not completely banning the song Bristol have enabled the message of anti-rape campaigners to be vocalised in a way that would not have been able if it were never mentioned or played again. Even though there is still a case to allow the original song in addition to the parodies, it is a better solution.

Durham University has taken a stance against the seven university students' unions that banned Robin Thicke's chart-topping "Blurred Lines" for allegedly promoting non-consensual sex.
I am not a feminist. I cannot support a movement that asks for special treatment rather than equal treatment, and I do not understand why anyone would. If feminism is about equality, then why not just be an egalitarian? If feminism does so much for the female sex, then why do six out of seven women reject the term "feminist" altogether?
It is Blurred Lines' connotations with misogyny and sexual violence that have prompted the university boycotts. Social media is now rife with shouts of "censorship is not the solution" and "it's just a song" but I for one would absolutely support my university in banning it, and strongly urge them to do so.
The lyrics are rather sexual and demoralise women to an extreme, especially T.I's rap before the bridge does resemble very much of female abuse. However I do not think that banning the song will exactly help.
