HOMOPHOBIC CHIC

Am I being hypersensitive or is the advert really, like I suspect, a load of sexist tosh. You see, I'm certainly getting - two lesbians see good looking stud and are immediately cured. But surely a major perfume company wouldn't be selling that misogynist twaddle in this day and age.

  1. Maybe they’re trying to capture the pimply teen-aged boy crowd… or the Ex-Gay Movement.

  2. But surely a major perfume company wouldn’t be selling that misogynist twaddle in this day and age.

    I didn’t think major perfume companies ever sold anything else.

  3. There was definitely some intended homoeroticism between the lipstick lesbos, but I did not see the conversion of which you speak at the end. Just two girls who got caught now pretending nothing was going on.

  4. It is sexist and I agree with Ostrich. There’s an advert for Vodka that’s suddenly everywhere on the back of buses: A bottle of vodka with a woman right next to it – only seen from chin to upper thigh and clad in a bikini. Disgusting. I haven’t yet written a letter of protest to NJ Transit but I will.

  5. Well, Ostrich, it’s the woman that has what you called the pocket torch, unless you were referring to his penis, which I saw no evidence of. And it isn’t perfume… it’s “complexion highlighter” what ever that is, but it’s not perfume. All I saw was a stupid advert for something no one needs.

  6. no, MadPriest, unless you smear Brighton rock all over your face to make it look more appealing. Which I wouldn’t put past you Brits.

  7. (PS I mean “you” in the abstract sense, not you personally, Mad Priest. I know you wouldn’t do that to Brighton rock.)

  8. unless you smear Brighton rock all over your face to make it look more appealing. Which I wouldn’t put past you Brits.

    Don’t be silly! Although it sounds like a good idea you would get attacked by wasps, and even the Brits* aren’t that daft.

    * Actually I can only speak on behalf of the Scots and English on this one, but we’re the important Brits anyway.
