I was very disappointed to see the latest addition to our endless series of billboard elections. Why is the Lebanese woman always stereotyped to the fashion-victim bimbo?  I personally did not identify with the billboards. I would like to see smarter women represented, who are not judged by the way they dress or the way they look, but for their ideas. Moreover, the statement accompanying the female-version billboard does not contain any hint of intelligence in it: she will vote for the color of her lipstick. What a wise choice! This is very repugnant. And please people don’t get all offended now I don’t have anything against your party🙂  it’s just that I find those ads truly repulsive. Better for all parties to stop advertising themselves already, it seems like they’re out of ideas…

    […] Anche per questo mi sembra che la campagna elettorale in Libano assomigli più che a una sexy campaing, come sostiene il Times, a una sexist campaing, come scrive, anzi illustra la blogger Maya Zankoul: date un’occhiata almeno qui e  qui. […]
