Fast Food IS NOT Sexy

In Proverbs the question is asked, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”
Wow!!! Isn’t that the truth…!

Everywhere you look virtue is thrown out the window and sex is thrust in our face as it is used to sell everything from shoes to fast food.

It is plain to see that Carl’s Jr. can’t afford virtue. The new Miss Turkey commercial objectifying women in a slimy attempt to sell a lousy turkey burger, makes it clear that virtue is certainly too expensive for their taste.  I was tempted to post the video here to show you what I was talking about, just in case you haven’t experienced it, but I didn’t want to give it any more exposure in that way. Take my word for it… it is tasteless. 
Even Arby’s is jumping aboard the sex train trying to sell their nasty food. They are suggesting that we will “really drool” over what they are about to reveal.  I don’t know about you, but drooling isn’t the word I would use to describe my reaction to this advertisement.

Can a family restaurant get anymore sleazy you may ask?
Yep, they can… check out this ad from Burger King, you know the restaurant where you “can have it your way”. 

My way is not that way! They get my vote for an all time low.
I hate to imagine what is yet to be exploited in the pursuit of peddling these fast food feasts.

What can you do about this smut… let your voice be heard.  Tell these scumbags what you really think.
Drop Carl’s a little note here at this link.

While you are at it.. Arby’s might be interested to know how you are not “drooling over what is about to be revealed” here at this link.

Don’t leave Burger King out either…

And... Thanks girls at BYU Women’s Services for giving me the push I needed to let my voice be heard!

The question still remains, who can find a virtuous woman?  
 Let’s hope someone is still looking for one!

  1. Good for you! I was shocked last week upon seeing the above mentioned Carl's Jr. commercial on our new big screen HDTV! SO offensive!

    I've had it, too! Thanks for the links.
