Our Silly Cultural Conscience

“Rape culture” warriors have been reading the labels on our beer bottles. And by “our beer bottles”, I actually mean “beer I would never drink in a million years”.

But I digress.

Bud Light ‘s new marketing slogan, anyway, is raising eyebrows on the brows of the easily brow-raisable::

“The perfect beer for removing ‘no’ from your vocabulary for the night #UpForWhatever” That’s the tagline printed on a Bud Light bottle and photographed by a sharp-eyed Reddit user late last night. Since then it’s ignited a flurry of criticism on social media, where people are saying that a slogan like that promotes rape culture

“Rape culture ” may or may not be a problem. But ” ‘rape culture’ culture” certainly is.

  1. So women are going to get guys drunk on Bud Light and take advantage of them?
    Despicable. There otta be a law.

  2. ‘…spotted by a sharp-eyed Reddit user late at night…’ according to the Washington Post.
    Granted people in their Pajama’s have brought down perpetrators of massive fraud such as Dan Rather, but is this where we are going? The cultural wasteland and united for grievance society that is Reddit decides the meaning behind beer slogans?
    Hate to give the Reddit crowd any more Problematics to deal with, but here you go:
    Budweiser “The King of Beers” (misogynistic)
    Labatt Blue “A whole lot can happen, Out of the Blue.” (rape via physical assault)
    Busch “Head for the Mountains” (a triple problematic)
    St. Pauli Girl (many, many problematics – will need a seperate comment section).
    Michelob Ultra “Lose the carbs. Not the taste.” (body shaming)
    Hamm’s “From the Land of Sky Blue Waters” (theft from Mother Nature)

  3. As usual, self important, leftist broads have missed it.

    Bud’s not suggesting drunk chicks are easy lays, they’re saying drunk dudes might tap the fat, hairy troglodyte that usually won’t get past “no”. Ironically it’s those same troglodytes that created the rape culture meme.

  4. What they should be required to print on their labels is a warning about the effects of beer goggles.

  5. Don’t even mention Schaefer “the beer to have when you’re having more than one”, or Old Milwaukee’s Swedish Bikini Team. Or the implied miscegenation of Carling’s “Hey, Mabel! Black Label.” Or Billy Dee Williams promising that Colt 45 “works every time.” Then there was another St.Louis classic, Griesedieck Bros.beer, which didn’t need a slogan (though some wags would mention “grabbing a Griesedieck.”)

  7. Does removing your inner NO lead to “Hold my beer and watch this”?

    I would think America’s Funniest Videos would be all over this.

  8. The lesson? – Don’t speak. Ever. If you write something, stick it in a box. Only say what has been approved by The Council.
