It seems like the American Decency Association is getting less and less in touch with the real world these days. Check out this e-mail campaign on their website.
This is an excerpt from their sample letter:
Millions of Christian people like me spend money minute by minute in McDonald restaurants every day. You are dirtying our airwaves and thereby our children and families when you carelessly and insensitively sponsor Victoria’s Secret “Fashion” Show.
You were the only fast food restaurant to attach your name to this lust-fest. You advertised on this show in 2005 as well.
Here is what you helped bring into millions of households Tuesday night, December 5.
The women used their bodies to lure and entice while the camera focused in on barely covered crotches and breasts, mostly bare bottoms, and cleavage. And while the women seductively paraded across stage, men’s reactions were shown from the audience.
Do you want my business? Advertising on Victoria’s Secret “Fashion” Show is not the way to earn it and keep it.
In closing, I say shame on you, McDonald’s. You have not conducted yourself with excellence.
Poor people…. I sent McDonald’s an e-mail to congratulate them on their sponsorship choice…. Eat that, ADA.
Something else from their website. Their active boycotts:
Abercrombie & Fitch
Reason: Long term trend toward using sexual imagery that cheapens human dignity
Reason: aggressively foisting unwelcome sexual imagery upon the public via window displays, TV ads and catalogs
I pity these people…
