I hate advertising. I hate that hot women that don’t even get most of the jokes from “That 70s Show”are supposed to sell me clothing. I hate the pervy men (and women) that make these marketing/PR decisions.
This is a new ad for American Apparel:
This is about cotton underwear, right?
Then why does this look like porn?
She’s licking his dick?! Seriously?!
Maybe this is just a more honest version of the advertising we are already used to seeing, making a girl literally looking like a porn star, instead of just simulating it. Rumor has it that the guy in the photo is the owner of the company. Gross. Double gross.
I hope that if I ever have children I have boys, so that I don’t have to explain to young girls that this is ridiculous nonsense. Or dissuade them from trying to emulate what they see in advertising, like God knows I did at a young age. (It was easier when the role models were just wearing blue mascara, neon, and shoulder pads.)
I hate being a woman sometimes.
Except when I look at this:
If we’re going to have sexist advertising, for Christ’s sake, at least make it involve equal opportunity ogling. And ditto for the attendant body image problems.
