Sexist add couldn't escape our spray paint

They keep cleaning it up, but we'll keep spraying it down.
These sexist objectifying adds are everywhere, disempowering women and convincing us all that women are nothing but passive sex objects. This one is particularly enraging.
Enough is enough. Women unite!

American Apparel

After complaints and actions from Dutch Feminists we have been searching for a way to avoid further incidents and negative publicity.
Now we proudly present our new clothing line, approved by leading Dutch Feminist dr. Anja van Oostenwegge.
We are confident now that Dutch women will buy even more of our products. Now in all our outlets: pay for one burka, get the second for free!



In protest against the (publication here of the) 'ad for the new clothingline of American Apparel' (the burka) - which is a very dirty discussion-technique - I decided to claim this (virtual) billboard to promote the work of one of my favorite artists Evan Baden. This work is titled Emily and comes from his project Technically Intimate about youth culture, sex and technology.

See his website:
(On it is also another project about workers.)
and also:

Technically Intimate is not porn, but a critical documentary about modern youth culture, and an investigation into the perception of the viewer. Baden: "I want the viewer to be unsure of what to think of the character in the image, to be torn, to be unsure whether the character is a young girl in need of protection or a sexual object to be lusted after."

I find these pictures both disturbing and fascinating and I think everybody should take a look at them and try to make up their mind about what they see.
