Nice try, Cosmo.
Cosmopolitan magazine had a brilliant idea this election — invite college girls to a party bus with some hot guys, drive them to the polls, and they’ll vote liberal!
Anyone else think that’s a little insulting?
These girls did. So they launched their own twitter campaign using #proudconservatives and posted pictures with signs that said:
We are students, not consumers.
No Cosmo, I don’t want a shirtless model. I want LIBERTY!
I don’t need a party bus to vote.
What an awesome response! They weren’t even impressed by the free “Voting is sexy” t-shirts.
News flash: Women care about issues.
Diana Stancy from Elon University, who helped organize the campaign, called the party bus “exploitative,” “degrading and disgraceful.”This was not a plain old “get out the vote” campaign. Cosmo endorsed Democrat Kay Hagan in the NC Senate race. Funny enough, the magazine ran the party bus ploy after calling a campaign ad by the Republican candidate “sexist.” Umm… and this isn’t??
All that, and their candidate still lost!
This is ridiculous, and I cannot stand the word “feminist.”
If conservatives did this, then they’d be shamed.
But liberals once again show how hypocritical and biased they are.
