Hanna Lindholm's new video

Hanna Lindhom is a young Swedish woman with a talent for making political videos. In her first video she visited a Swedish University and asked students if they would accept her claims to identify as a man or as a Japanese person, or if they would accept her claim to be two metres tall. Many of the students felt that they must answer "yes" if that is how she defined herself.

She travelled to Budapest in Hungary to ask students there the same questions, but she wasn't taken seriously. So instead she asked the students to guess the ages of those claiming to be refugee children in Sweden ("unaccompanied minors"). The resulting video is really interesting, particularly at the end when the students give their opinions on Sweden's refugee policy (it's mostly in English).
