Dating tagline examples
As is the case with most brands that try to be ‘edgy’ with their advertisements, Popchips has offended a lot of people.The brand’s “president of pop culture” Ashton Kutcher pissed off a load of Indian-Americans a few years ago with an offensive dating spoof in which he played the character of ‘Raj’; Katy Perry’s ads for the brands were less intentionally controversial, but still deserve to be questioned.Millennials know that it’s now easier than ever to have your self-esteem destroyed.Tagged photos, Periscope cameos, bad changing room lighting; these various small factors can slowly unravel even the most body-positive attitudes.Posing in exercise gear, the star is accompanied by the tagline “Love.Without the handles” as she apparently substitutes actual weights with two bags of low-calorie snacks.But if you’re one of the millions of guys trying their luck on a dating site or app that requires a headline, then read on. Your dating headline is one of the first things on your profile that sets you apart from the crowd of posers, six-pack-selfy-takers, nimrods, and lowlifes.
It’s the same on POF: Now we’re not going to make any snarky comment about these headlines (but seriously, they’re awful, don’t use them).
Naturally, the bigger model has a big red ‘X’ next to her – because who in their right mind would willingly have sex with a fat woman, right?
A later edition of the ad was released with the same image of the second model accompanied by the question “Did your wife SCARE you last night?
Good thing they don’t go straight to my hips.” Really?
In another example of ‘shaming fat women for daring to show even a hint of sexuality’, e-cigarette company Blucigs released this questionable advert which shows a half-naked man in bed next a woman sprawled out – presumably his drunken conquest. The implication is obvious – the subtext is that this guy had picked up the girl from a bar after a few whiskies and woken up to regret the news that his chosen lay was a few stone overweight.
