In liberal society, male and female are made not in the image of God, but in the image of feminism
The below is a cropped version of an advertisement in New York magazine for “New York Deals: A Short List of our Favorite Bargains from Select Partners on the Web”:
And the man? (Or should I say the “man”?) He is in the background. His face is soft and passive like a baby’s. There is zero energy, zero character, zero masculinity in his face.
And here’s the thing I still don’t understand. We know that feminist ideologues—which includes all professional media and advertising people—automatically disseminate such politically correct images of male and female. But advertising, including the above ad, is directed at ordinary women (and men). Why would ordinary women (and men) be drawn to such an unnatural, indeed perverted, portrayal of the sexes, instead of being repelled by it?
Paul T. writes:
One possible answer, counterintuitive though it may be, is that many people in the advertising industry are less concerned about actually selling their client’s products than about awards, recognition and status within their own professional circle. This is not just my opinion, it’s been addressed in classic books like Ogilvy on Advertising. And that circle is now much more politically radicalized than it was in Ogilvy’s day.Buck writes:
I’ll speculate that she’s not imagining the company of the male next to her, or perhaps of any man. It may be the knowing and superior hands of another female that she is savoring in the moment. And maybe the delicate, unmanly arms in the background give zero-man no pleasure. Maybe they came to the spa together to be transported far from each other. Female feminist love that they are becoming more like men. Maybe a male feminist laying next to any fully actualized female feminist can have no energy or character or masculinity. Why would they be together? Maybe they shared a cab.Texanne V. writes:
“Male and female, He created them,” has become, “Straight and Gay, He created them.”
