Only ‘old white men’ care about Obama’s virginity ad? Women push back

http://twitter.com/#!/JamesHercher/status/261642640599158784

The Nation swooned over the Obama campaign’s “sexy” and “affirmatively feminist” ad  featuring “Girls” actress Lena Dunham — you know, the putrid, offensive video that likens first-time voting to having sex for the first time. And the Atlantic’s Connor Simpson mocked the “ridiculous” outrage from “old white men” on the Right.

Lena Dunham gets old white men all hot and bothered: theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/…

Simpson’s fellow travelers on the seedy, woman-degrading Left joined him in lashing out at old white guys who don’t get the absolute hilarity of the president’s stomach-turningly disgraceful sexualization of young women for his own political gain.

Cute Lena Dunham vid may be hit w/young voters. But will it be a hit after kids hear the pushback from 55 and over whiteguys on Twitter?

Old white men would be shaking their fists at Lena Dunham’s ad, but they’re too busy taking their Viagra pills and looking up pics of Palin.

I can’t believe old, white guy Republicans are upset about the Lena Dunham video for #Obama – get over yourselves. No one cares. #funnyvideo

It’s not a “good ad” or a “funny video.” It’s not “cute.” And it certainly isn’t “sexy” to urge 18-year-old women to vote their way into Obama’s Skinemax harem fantasy.

It’s typical.

It’s a repulsive affirmation of the toxic liberal culture that trivializes sex and devalues women and girls, reducing them to no more than walking, talking “lady parts.” And that condescending, dismissive disregard for women is equally evident in progressive writers’ claims that only “old white men” care.

I guess all us offended women don’t count. RT @beregond: Congrats to @keder, who The Atlantic thinks is middle aged. is.gd/jloFl2

Conservative women had plenty to say about Obama’s demeaning assumption that sexualizing the voting process is the way to a young woman’s … well, the only part of her the president can stand to focus on. They’re sick of seeing the misogynist Left’s ideologically-driven crusade to insult and objectify women in the pursuit of leftist goals. And they refuse to be crammed into Obama’s “binder full of women.”

Watch the ad again and then read the reaction from “non-existent” conservative women.

Had there ever been a president that exploits women more than @barackobama? I think not. youtube.com/watch?v=o6G3nw… #FirstTime

Confirmed: My president has such a low opinion of women that his campaign made this: youtube.com/watch?v=o6G3nw… #FirstTime

— Kemberlee Kaye (@red_red_head) October 26, 2012

The #MyFirstTime ad is the height of vulgarity. Tell me #Democrat Moms: Is this how you want the president talking to your daughters?~Stacy

— Stacy Washington (@StacyOnTheRight) October 25, 2012

#MyFirstTime Instead of pandering to America’s youth as if they are sex obsessed morons, Obama should just step down. Tis low even for him.

— Stacy Washington (@StacyOnTheRight) October 25, 2012

I can’t wait until Nov. 6, when we elect men who respect my daughter and don’t think women are just walking girly bits. #RomneyRyan2012

According to @barackobama, 26 yr olds are still children, yet he’s okay with using sexual innuendo geared towards college students in an ad

— Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) October 25, 2012

Between Julia and this new freaking ad, @barackobama portrays women as giddy, helpless, impressionable morons.

— Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) October 25, 2012

This ad devolves women to nothing more than lady parts with estrogen overload and incurable dependency.

— Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) October 25, 2012

I get pop culture politics, as much as I hate them, but this is so far over line that I blushed playing it in front of my three girls.

— Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) October 25, 2012

Yeah, I get it… losing your virginity and relationships arent that big a deal anymore.So, let us liken them to voting and reality tv.

— Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) October 25, 2012

Though I should not besurprised that a man who would suggest abortion to his own daughter regards women in such an offensive manner.

— Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) October 25, 2012

Reagan talked about “a shining city on a hill” & America’s greatness. Obama’s talking about #ladyparts & your daughter’s “first time.” #tcot

— Sandy (@_SandyP) October 25, 2012

Obama is approving ads I wouldn’t approve my daughter listening to bit.ly/QIO80v

— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) October 25, 2012

This ad is more evidence Democrats focus on what’s between our legs than what’s between our ears bit.ly/QIO80v

— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) October 25, 2012

This ad, suggesting women should want to sleep with Obama, is disgusting. youtube.com/watch?v=o6G3nw…

— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) October 25, 2012

.@messina2012 most “1st time voters” are teens trying to test mature waters. Yet you trivialize the issue of virginity making it abt voting?

— Sister Toldjah (@sistertoldjah) October 25, 2012

.@messina2012 why must #Obama2012 sexualize the voting process for young teen women?Is nothing sacred & innocent to you ppl anymore? #p2

— Sister Toldjah (@sistertoldjah) October 25, 2012

@vaginasunited @rickstones @sistertoldjah My 17 y/o is disturbed by this ad. We’re both so sick of being minimized by the Dems.

— KrisR (@bookwormk) October 25, 2012

@morningmika So do you agree with obama’s new disgusting ad to women?.How degrading.You have a daughter.This ad is twisted

— karen ann phelps (@libertybellskp) October 26, 2012

Twitchy founder/CEO Michelle Malkin is bored by lefty celebs swooning over “their birth control supplier in the White House.” She calls the ad “the lady parts’ brigade’s jump-the-shark moment” and reminds Dunham, Fluke and company of her message to women.

Those with broken moral compasses would like to make this about uptight conservatives clutching their pearls over sex.

The reaction to this Obama Web Ad indicates yet again just how uptight the SoCons are about sex.

— Doug Mataconis (@dmataconis) October 25, 2012

That’s absurd. We’re not the liberal stereotype of stick-in-the-mud conservatives and we can appreciate a good double entendre. This one wasn’t even mediocre. It was a raunchy attack on the notion that women care about more than sex and birth control. It was yet another attempt to define women as even less than the sum of their parts.

When the sitting president — a father of two daughters — allows his campaign to make degrading analogies at the expense of our teen and college-aged daughters, you’d better believe men and women of all ages and races are going to be appalled.

Dear @barackobama: You are a disgrace and a pig. Guess what my daughter and I just did together? Sent @mittromney more cash money.

— Lori Ziganto (@snarkandboobs) October 25, 2012

We have a feeling that’s what a lot of moms and dads did with their daughters last night.

The Obama campaign has not responded to the backlash from conservatives. Keep the pressure on.

If the “first time” #Obama2012 video disturbs you, make sure to (respectfully) let @messina2012 know what you think about it. #p2 #tlot
