'Strip for Likes' Campaign: OK or No Way?

This could be the beginning of a dangerous trend. The Amsterdam branch of fashion brand, Stüssy, is encouraging fans to click the "like" button on photos of a sexy model on their Facebook page. The more "likes" a photo receives, the more clothes the heavily dressed model in the photo will take off. In other words, this chick is digitally stripping for "likes."



Is the campaign clever? Without a doubt. Degrading to women? Some says yes. Plus, as some point out, it could be in violation of Facebook’s Terms of Service. Facebook’s promotional guidelines read, "You must not use Facebook features or functionality, such as the Like button, as a voting mechanism for a promotion." What do you think of the "strip for likes" campaign? Is it a genius way to get clicks and likes? Or just plain tacky?

    This shows how low society has sunk. What happened to self-respect? Apparently it's just about dead.

    Its true. Its a mans world out there. And thats exactly why we're having to deal with stuff like this in the media. Men are the problem here. Its because youre the ones who pressure women into thinking they cant be loved or accepted unless they do things like this. This is wrong. Its so obvious that America has lost so much Morale and Values that should be Fundamental with each individual.

    True. But men and the society put an inexorable amount of stress on women to portray themselves in this way to be accepted or loved. ofcourse i blame men. Im not being vain, im speaking the truth everyone else on this page put in more evasive words.

    You blame men for something that is completely under the women's control if you fold under the pressure of media that is a personal sign of weakness stop aiming the blane at men not all men are the same and not all men "pressure" women to behave this way. . Women seem to think that's what men want but I for one just want them to be themselves and act as an individual not someone who is diong whatever the media asks of them
  • MiaBella Greenbay 2012/04/15 19:25:35

    Im not one folding under the media and men's pressure. The Obvious main message prtrayed through the media and the stereotypical male is that they want women to do things like this. Disagree all you want but it is the truth. I do blame men for this because thats the message give through society and the media.

    This is actually ironically the effect of feminism. This is what feminists call "liberating." It is one way for women to have "power" over men. They celebrate things like this, and birth control, because it allows women to be dominant sexual figures. OF course don't mention that since the feminist movement female happiness has gone down relative to male happiness.

    As for this supposed war on women, that's a joke. There is however, a much more likely war on masculinity.

    Sorry...you can't scream fire while you're holding a lighter!

    So, stereotypes are acceptable when applied to one gender but not the other? There en-lies the misguided double-standard of cultural feminism. You claim you want equality, are not willing to take the blame for your own actions and are all too trigger happy to directly (even in public admission) misplace blame.

    Mass generalization has never really proven successful in the argument for or against anything or anyone...period. You can't label an entire group of people while simultaneously claiming to be the victim of being generalized. There is a point where personal accountability kicks in and to be fair models wouldn't be models if they didn't posses a certain desire for some level of exhibitionism. In our overly sexualized society this sort of thing has become the norm....and its not just on FB, its on mainstream family viewing time tv, ABC, CBS, NBC are peddling today what 20 years ago would have been considered smut and yet, somehow, we're ok with it today.

    You want to point a finger at someone? How about the feminists? The women who have worked hard for the last 50 years+ to purposefully destabilize society by attacking heterosexual marriage, promoting a deliberate blurring of gender roles, promoting same-ge...

    You want to point a finger at someone? How about the feminists? The women who have worked hard for the last 50 years+ to purposefully destabilize society by attacking heterosexual marriage, promoting a deliberate blurring of gender roles, promoting same-gender marriage, promoting public policy that borderline promotes; promiscuity, abortions, teenage pregnancy, high school drop-outs, divorce, drug use and then wondering why all of the rest of society falls to garbage in the societies where they "succeed". A lot of good all this "Self-esteem" garbage has really done huh? Feminists have, systematically, done more to bring society to an all-time moral low than any other single factor in history! What more perfect way to push the blame of your own actions (feminists) then to blame the very group to which you claim grievance. Kinda sad when you consider the Nazi's used this same tactic, as do the contemporary Palestinians against the Jews in Israel.

    Might it be that the nearly 30k studies that have concluded children (and society at large) do best with a father and mother figure in the home? When boys and girls learn their appropriate roles in society everyone does well, when marriage is weakened and students struggle between their home and school lives society struggles. This is a published, tried and again statistical fact. Marriage is the quintessential ingredient in all cultures of the world, institution and litmus test for society; the healthier (heterosexual) marriages are, the healthy society is, the less likely women or men are to be objectified or "abused". the better students do in school, the more productive workers are in professional fields, the more accomplishments society makes, etc, etc, etc. Marriage is the cornerstone of society and anytime it (socially) begins to fail the feminists aren't very far away (they usually sneak around corners and wait for their perceived opportunity to step out and cry oppression while seeking ways to direct oppress men and married women).

    Grace to you, Glory to God!

    not really, women set the trends, men like them, women follow them
  • MiaBella TrailOf... 2012/04/15 19:28:57
    MiaBella
    Not true. the media sets the trends based upon what they think men will like and because of that, we're dealing with this crap about stripping for likes. Refute all you want. Its filthy, but men want women to degrade themselves and they make it seem like the only way to find love or acceptance. its the WAR ON WOMEN. WAKE UP from your ignorant daydream that you call life and accept the problem

    The media sets the trends to clothes and styles that make women themselves feel more sexy and independent. Throughout history, as women have been getting more and more rights, they have been pushing a national dress code to show of their independent nature. Men use to run the government and back then it was illegal to even show ones ankles.
    Women have their own personal opinions and styles and do not even have to follow the media's trend.
    And there is no such thing as a "War on Women." I am a women, i think i would realize if men was being sexist against me.

    Actually, the trends in fashoin are currently driven by the price of fabric. Fewer threads per inch and a maximum number of pieces cut from each yard of cloth is the only things that matter. They tell women that men find this sexy, but it's only a gimmick for selling inferior quality crap.

    It's clearly a PR stunt and if you don't care for it, then don't go "Like" it, it's as simple as that. As for myself... this is a far as I'm going on this subject and I won't even check it out any further than this article, for the fact that I don't agree with it. But for those of you who do... I hope you find your gold at the end of that clothing rainbow... my guess though, is that this is much ado about nothing.
