Deep Ellum Brewery accused of promoting Rape Culture




LINK

quote:

Dallas Blonde is an American Blonde Ale that "goes down easy," if you believe what the can tells you. Taken in the context of their aggressively flavored beers, the message can be interpreted quite literally -- the beer is comparatively smooth. But add the creepy doll with a blonde wig and things start to get a little uncomfortable, according to Genevieve Cato, who writes for BOR. Put the image on a massive hot-pink van, she says, and a line has been crossed.

Cato says she didn't interview a representative from the Brewery, but claims the marketing makes use of "rape culture" and is insensitive considering the role alcohol can play in sexual assault. Not to mention it's a little one-dimensional. "It's not very creative advertising."




Deep Ellum Response

quote:

What’s not funny is how that’s been interpreted to promoting rape culture. If anyone is to blame for promoting such thoughts, it should be those interpreting the phrase to that level. Shame on you.

Weak. The PC culture is out of control at times.

I always thought the Arctic Panzer Wolf looked a little rapey.



Probably because of this...

I saw that on FB a little while ago and actually clicked to read some of the blog.

Crazy that people went with the rape culture comments but people can be retarded on the internet. I thought it was funny.

She bought the beer willingly, decided afterwards she didn't like it, so she cries rape and tries to get the brewer in trouble. Typical feminist.

This writer is an unfathomable dumb frick of a feminist. She most probably looks under her bed at night to be sure the bogey man is not hiding there.
