Jeep bow to Whinging Feminist Lesbians

Jeep‘s Australian HQ has been backed into a corner by two angry mobs after posting up the below image on their Facebook page:

Hot babes sell cars because sex sells - Jeep know this, but Feminists still complain

Shortly after the image was published it (quite predictably) received a whole slew of likes and positive comments from their core male and female market who don’t act like quivering piles of offended dog turds.

But then, there is always one who has to come along and pretend that they’re on the verge of collapse from sheer offence, isn’t there…

The Herald Sun reports that Jeep were “forced” to ‘remove a photograph of a scantily clad woman from its Facebook page after several users complained it was sexist.’

Reports that the page was “flooded” with users complaining of sexism, are false. It was a minority, which is always the case with these ridiculous situations. Despite this, Jeep caved like little bitches, taking the image down, adhering to the mantra of the present day: offend nobody, and if you accidentally do, immediately back down from what you just said.

Basically, throw integrity out the window.

Well for once, we are happy to report that the act of caving to political correctness itself, has backfired. What did end up flooding Jeep Australia’s Facebook page, was the barrage of angry Jeep die-hards who demanded the photo be republished, saying the company’s detractors were nothing but ”whining feminist lesbians”.

”Pretty girls in sexy clothes have been used as part of the automotive selling strategies (sic) for years, just because a handfull (sic) of narrow-minded women libbers dont (sic) like it the rest of the world has to miss out. Grow up you whining bunch of feminist lesbians and get a life. SEX SELLS!” wrote one user.

”I bet if there was (sic) a couple of guys in the jeep wearing Glee pink V Neck T shirts saying hello sailor there (sic) be no up roar (sic),” wrote another.

Fiat Chrysler Australia, Jeep Australia’s parent company, did not respond to requests for comment.

As one commenter later put it;

“The question is not weather it’s appropriate or inappropriate, the question is does it resonate with their target market and core consumers.

I think the main purchaser of a Jeep is a male who loves beautiful, powerful things which means then its a great message. The female purchaser (not the major consumer) probably is fit, adventurous and affluent who enjoys the beautiful and exotic.

Those two angles could then potentially lead to the female imagining herself as the girl whilst the guy can imagine himself with the girl.”

Personally, I once again feel it is my duty and obligation to tell you to get off the Internet if you find pathetically petty things like this offensive, and if you insist on the removal of offensive things being policed, you better be prepared to live with what the rest of us find offensive: your pathetic whining.

    Yes, it is sexist.

    Whenever a camera shutter is heard, some woman takes her clothes off. THAT is the sexism part. But of course, men are blamed. And that is the meta-sexism.

    It’s important to remember that major companies like Jeep have only been using the internet for a short time frame (comparatively speaking). They’re starting to learn now what old school nerds like me have known for a while: there is a dedicated core of butthurt activists that will give the appearance of having a majority from the sheer amount of posting they’ll do about any given topic.

    The people complaining about a scantily clad woman next to a jeep would never have purchased Jeep products in the first place, and are impossible to appease anyway. It’s a waste of time trying to make them happy, and they have zero impact beyond shitting up the comments thread or your facebook wall.

    Jeep figured this out eventually, and hopefully other businesses will too. The only thing you gain from caving in to mentally deficient keyboard warriors is disrespect from your much more moderate customer base.

    An interesting thought.

    I’m reading “Lone Survivor” at the moment and reading about SEAL team training

    Do you think that a class of keyboard warriors and activists would have the gonads to pass? Constantly drilled into the SEAL initiates is “life is not fair, but you will get through if you are a team”
    the issue is, I think this PC business is a sort of softness, a race to rail and be offended by something. This is backed by an overdeveloped sense of entitlement.

    I would have much more respect for them if they had to go through a trial to earn the right to comment, rather than to hide lazily and anonymously behind the social media cloud. Right now we hear from the bottom of the barrel, loud, empty, whinging pots with everything to say and nothing to lose.
