After the first disastrous ad, the "reconquista" ad, Absolut Vodka has debuted another sure-to-be controversial ad. I was reading Cosmo when I flipped the page and saw this:
The sad thing was, I wasn't the least bit surprised. I somehow imagine that Absolut, like the rest of the liberal media, got the idea from their adoration of the woman, Thomas Beatie, who got pregnant and was called a man. I personally refuse to call her a man. She isn't a man. She's a woman who got her boobs chopped off and took testosterone.
Anyways, I have a suspicion that Beatie was the inspiration for this ad. And in any case, what is their point? That more women should become transgendered and have babies while calling themselves men? That it would be neato if guys could have babies? People are so desperate to push the envelope these days that they don't take the time to stop and think about whether or not the message they're sending makes any sense. Yeah, yeah, we get it. Liberals love to turn traditional stereotypes on their heads. Very mature and intelligent. But switching childbearing genders just pushes a pointless, meaningless message. It says nothing, and in all likelihood was created for sheer shock value alone, meant to be avante-garde and offensive. But how many people will do more than raise their eyebrows?
And that's what is so sad. We've slid so far into the slime in this country, have so completely abandoned our Judeo-Christian morals and values, that for many of us (although not all) this won't be shocking in the least.
I'm not saying things like this should be censored, not in the least. However, it would be nice if companies like Absolut would show some respect for the values that the majority of Americans hold dear. I guess being the beverage of open borders just wasn't good enough for them anymore.
