Re: Sex is a marketing way to sell stuff? What a news!
Exactly !!! Look at women's clothing and perfume advertising?. Does it not exploit sex?
The issue here is the neo-fascists of the ultra-right wing "third wave feminists" (who are not feminists at all).
These ultra-right wing feminists (and other members of the ultra-right wing "regressive left") are bent upon enforcing their interpretations of what is tolerable and what is acceptable.
And they totally ignore the fact that they're words are "triggering" those of us who've lived through WWII and the Cold War.
They're totally ignoring the fact that -- by their own standards -- they are re-traumatizing those who suffered at the hand of conformist totalitarians, after they were imprisoned in concentration camps in Europe and in Asia.
