Isn't Obama's new ad about losing your voting virginity sexist?

    Isn't Obama's new ad about losing your voting virginity sexist?

    Not to mention that the icky factor is incredibly high.  I'm talking about the new ad with Lena Dunham comparing the first time a woman votes to the first time a woman loses her virginity.  AAAAGH!  Obama's campaign manager must have been nuts to approve that ad.  Did they really think women were this stupid?  And they accuse Romney of hating women?

    I agree it's sexist in the sense that it only gives one satirical perspective on voting, which is the female one!

    What about for the first time male voter?  I think that would be funny also.

    This sort of ad is inappropriate and Obama has to know that.  I suspect that the whole concept was maybe Moochelle's idea.  To encourage the uninformed to vote based upon emotion is inappropriate conduct aimed at either sex.

      Oh how we revise history.

      Reagan joked about it the same way.  http://blog.sfgate.com/nov05election/20 … ld-reagan/  You would need to be outraged at Reagan too!

      So stop revising history sooner.  You libs have a nice way of rewriting it.

      You do know people can find out what Reagan said for themselves.  You aren't doing yourself any favors by denying something that is easily verifiable.

    Great ad! Let's young people know the importance of voting. Also how important their vote this year is in protecting woman's rights from the Romney/Ryan attack on woman's health, equal employment pay, and abortion!

      Maybe you can cite some specific examples of how your rights as a woman are being threatened?  Or are you just spouting liberal talking points which is what the War on Women amounts to.  It's all talk with no substance so give it your best shot.

    I don't necessarily think the ad would be considered sexist as much as just inappropriate.
