I don't see anything wrong with Sia's clip with Shia LeBeouf and Maddie Ziegler. I actually really like it. 
It's interesting that in the postmodern era we are moving toward both expression of the subconscious, absurd and taboo (which started of course with the dada movement in the 1920's), 
and the nixing of it (for the sake of women's rights).
I mean we as a culture are admiring and legitimizing our true desires, including sexual ones, yet also reeling them back in light of our growing attempt to protect. It's kind of a paradox of the freedom and openness of postmodernity.
And in any case, I see a lot of empowerment of girls and women in this clip and not the opposite.
