Ladies Stop Disrespecting Yourselves!!

People like to adorn their vehicles with all sorts of shit. The most common are bumper stickers/magnets – though I have showcased some other bizarre things like Truck Nuts and Stuffed Animals Gone Bad.

It is very easy to spot a vehicle that is advertising their Mickey Mouse loving family of six and various pets. The same family may have a child that is an honor roll student, in the band, or on the Fencing Team! School pride runs deep with all sort of school spirit options (raising my hand on this one). Another vehicle may declare their love or dislike of the President. Maybe you will find out that the driver ‘Would Rather be at a Neil Diamond Concert’ –  yes I have seen this. Or he/she may proclaim their love for Handbells! Yes, sadly this too. Maybe you will read that they want us to Coexist, Support Peace!, or ahem are……Jersey Strong (that’s me BTW).

Basically our vehicles have become extensions of ourselves showcasing our beliefs, our loves, and our hates. I get that, I am also guilty of it. But (there always is a but isn’t there?) at what point did women decide to advertise their sexual prowess? Not sure what I am talking about. Well check out these lovely items I have spied around town on fellow women’s vehicles.

SexBumperStickers

Here’s the thing ladies, when you put a phrase on your car that states “If You Are Going to Ride My Ass at Least Pull My Hair” (not shown) or “Better a Blow Job, Than No Job” or “Be A Flirt, Lift Your Shirt” or “Silly Boys…Hummers are for Girls” you are advertising that you have loose morals. I am not saying you do, but I am saying that is the perception. For the record, flirting is not lifting your shirt. You know what that is? It’s called indecent exposure and will get you arrested. This type of sticker does nothing to elevate your intelligence, your sophistication, or your class.

These sayings degrade women. They do not promote our stature in society. As a woman, we have enough issues in the world. Why would you want to perpetuate any belief that would further promote the degradation of our gender?

And for those that want to say it is your right to put this on your vehicles. I agree 100% it is your right. However, I am of the opinion that just because you can doesn’t mean you should. I wish more people would follow this belief, I think a lot of shit could be avoided if they did.

 What’s your thoughts? Have you seen any other magnets like this?

  1. It makes me very sad to see stuff like that on people’s cars. And I wonder – what jerk-off created that stuff in the first place? Can’t we FINALLY stop this?
    I guess not.
    I wish there were a vaccine for stupid. But I suppose the people who need it most wouldn’t bother to get it.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I agree they probably wouldn’t use it 🙁

  2. I too get so frustrated when I see anything degrading a woman anywhere, but get really sad, and yes, pretty angry, when it’s a woman who is degrading herself and the collective “us”. I also agree, it is her right to do so, but, wholeheartedly agree with you, just because it is your right doesn’t mean you have to do it!!!

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      Yup women need to realize these magnets are not funny, they are degrading. Wish more people would realize that.

  3. I have ‘I LOVE MY KITTIES’ on the back of mine, and they keep getting stolen? Cat Haters? Muff lovers? WTH?

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I am putting my money on cat haters. I am shocked my Jersey Strong hasn’t been taken – do people have no taste? Geez.

  4. Sue says:

    Just love the last line of just because you can does not mean you should.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      Really think this should be ingrained in all people – maybe after the pledge of allegiance in the morning or something??

    • Dee says:

      …isn’t that Spandex’s byline?

      • theshitastrophy.com says:

        Ha! Spandex is a bitch, it could very well be.

  5. Allie says:

    Dear Lord! I have never seen ANY of those!! Probably because I live in conservative CT but seriously?? I have zero bumper stickers on my car. It’s just not my thing BUT if my daughter (thank God I don’t have one!) put something like this on her car, I would definitely think I failed as a parent.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I can’t help but wonder what there parents think? Even if my kid was 30 and had this on her car I would freaking take it off. The End.

  6. What about the eyelashes on the headlights? I feel like those are disrespectful to women AND cars.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I only saw the eyelashes once, but seriously WTF is that?

  7. Agreed!
    But guess what…my mom used to secretly put bumper stickers on my car like “Honk if you’re horny” and “when it’s hot out, my top comes off” (I think that was meant for a convertible). Each time it took me about a week to figure out why I was receiving all that creepy attention.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      Your mom sounds hysterical! Now I know where you get it from:) Have you given her a beaver baby? Maybe for the holiday’s?

  8. Jean says:

    My babysitter had to scrape off her bumper sticker that said “Don’t like my driving? Dial 1-800-Eat-Shit” because she didn’t want the nuns to get angry when she dropped me off at school. I’m unsure what the deal is with bumper sticker philosophy in general but I do know that if someone has one that pisses me off I will not let them merge in front of me.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I like the way you work. I am instituting the same anti-merge tactic. Good call by the sitter, after years of Catholic school I would have to agree that they might not approve.

  9. I have not seen bumper stickers like those (although I don’t pay a lot of attention to bumper stickers) and I would definitely not want to use them. I can’t see what would make anyone want them… I’d be embarrassed… but to each his (or her) own I guess!

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      Count yourself lucky! I wish I didn’t see these on such a regular basis. Sad and disturbing.

  10. I would just love to pull up behind one of those cars with my 11 year old daughter and have her ask me what a blow job or a hummer is. That would make my day!

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I am with you. Every time I spot on of these with the kids in the car I have to go full speed to the metal distraction so that I don’t have to explain it to either of them. I am hoping they don’t have kids of their own.

  11. Yep! I’m with you. This shit is degrading to women. It’s bad enough when guys sport these things on their cars. But when women do it to themselves? Crazy.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I just want to go and take them off their cars! Don’t they understand how demeaning it is? Apparently not.

  12. Yes, I’m actually always shocked that people put this stuff on their cars! When I was in high school, my brother had a bumper sticker that said “Your father should have pulled out early” on the car’s visor. I used to be SO embarrassed by it (even though it was funny and not one of the really demeaning to women ones). I don’t put anything on my cars. Ever. I don’t get it!

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I do have things on my car, but not anything that would make my inner woman cringe. I give you lots of credit for withstanding the pull to bedazzle your vehicle with the magnets. It’s a strong force once you let it in, next thing you know bam! you got 4 on there.

  13. Jen A. says:

    These are the same women who are offended if someone calls them a slut and start trotting out the old ‘why is it when men sleep around they’re studs but if women sleep around they’re sluts?” argument. Whether you’re a man or a woman that has many partners or just one it should be YOUR business only. Why is the rear end of a car the place to proclaim who and what you are in life anyway? Your political party, your job, your kid’s grades and your hobbies– I don’t want total strangers knowing any of that nevermind what I do in bed! People will key your car for just having a bumper sticker of a rival sports team. I’ve seen that happen! A woman who puts something like that on her car is just asking for trouble as well as making us all look bad.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I agree 100% – there is no positive side of declaring that on your vehicle. I am surprised that women do not realize that having this on your car will attract no one good.

  14. Ashlee says:

    If you’re going to ride my ass, at least pull my hair <— OH MY GOD. My mother would knock me out cold if I ever slapped this stick on my car. I just can't even imagine.

    My favorite is seeing the big trucks with even bigger wheels and cow balls hanging down in the back… they obviously fell short in some areas.

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      I can think of no person I respect that would have these on their vehicles, it not ok.

    • noonesbusiness says:

      “If you’re going to ride my ass, at least pull my hair <— OH MY GOD. My mother would knock me out cold if I ever slapped this stick on my car. I just can't even imagine."

      its not suppose to be sexual…its suppose to tell you to BACK OFF sheez

  15. Robbie says:

    My dad never allowed bumper stickers on his cars. He was a very laid back guy but stood his ground on that one. Said they were trashy & ruined the cars so I’ve NEVER had a bumper sticker on any vehicle I drove. I think they are all trashy!

    • theshitastrophy.com says:

      My parents never had them either, but that was when the stickers were actual stickers. Now there are a lot of magnets – but sadly the really horrible one’s I have seen were stickers. Your father sounds like a wise man.

  16. Jessica says:

    To each their own. I love my “REAL CHICKS DRIVE STICK” and “BAD ASS LADIES DON’T DRIVE MERCEDES” decals. I don’t find it degrading. And what’s the deal with the “Silly boys, hummers are for girls” decal? There isn’t anything degrading about that. I make decals and have seen all sorts of things people request. As of right now I am making a lady a decal that says “If you’re going to ride my ass at least pull my hair”. I’d rather see something unique than salt life stickers.

  17. Nay says:

    For me these and the playboy bunny stickers get me going. I mean don’t these girls know that women died to give them the vote and the right to respect?! Why would you play into patriarchal ideas about women?!!! They should be reeducated or booted from the sisterhood honestly!
