The following are just two examples of the ‘anti’ reaction:
“As a woman I am extremely offended. The Obama administration has devolved women to nothing more than a set of reproductive organs with needy, government dependency,” she continued. “This ad is inappropriate because it is sexualizing the voting process. This isn’t an ad the average family would want their daughters to see.” (Lauren Thompsen – research analyst for the Media Research Center)
…and that’s without the righteous indignation of the Christian fundies.
So… just what is so degrading/demeaning/appalling about this video? Does it justify the level of outrage being broadcast about it? A young woman uses a bit of gentle double entendre to kill two birds with one stone – your first sexual encounter and your first time voting are equally important rites of passage. What the hell is the problem?
Your first time should be with someone you care about… Shock horror – depraved and twisted lust from the nethermost pit… (sighs)
Your first adult vote should be for someone likely to address your personal concerns….Sounds like common sense to me.
As for the outrage against this add – feels like prissy, meally-mouthed sanctimoniousness to me.
