VoodooDoughnut

Let’s travel to Portland for a little local ad controversy. Edgy doughnut shop Voodoo Doughnuts (tagline: The Magic Is In The Hole) submitted this ad for their branded clothing line to the feminist quarterly Bitch Magazine (tagline: Feminist Response To Pop Culture). Bitch rejected the ad because, according to spokeswoman Jaymee Jacoby, they felt it objectified a woman’s body in order to sell clothing. “We felt that our readers would feel that the ad goes against our mission statement to be anti-sexist.” Voodoo owner Tres Shannon, whose menu includes such treats as Triple Chocolate Penetration and Cock-n-Balls, replied, “I thought Bitch would be happy the woman isn’t plucked and shaved, but all natural like a real woman.” It would be interesting to see if Bitch would accept the same ad without the pubes. My art director says she would have dyed the bush hot pink. |via: Willamette Week|
