Now, rewind a few months to another shocking video, where a young lady coyly tells the audience that their "first time" should be with the president. Sure -- it was about voting. But it had a lot of innuendos about something else. People were in disbelief after that one, too.
Gina already posted on this ad, as did Anne Morse. I am not repeating those posts -- but I want to go farther. I want to ask you: Please help me understand the audience.
Both of these ads were done by large organizations that had lots of money -- the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Obama reelection campaign, respectively. These organizations are made up of smart people. They do not spend that kind of money unless they know their audience. They also have to know the ad will work with that audience, in large numbers. Can someone please explain that audience to me?
It is an audience for whom sex is only a game? Well, to many, they may play it that way, but is that something to celebrate? Is it one in which people LIKE being victims of non-commitment? The most baffling part, alluded to in both ads, is the idea that a girl or a young woman cannot hope to find a man who will give her more commitment than a thrill on Election Day, or 40 years of promises with the abortions that make it "fun." And then these ads celebrate that. Joie de vivre!
