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.
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?
