A day late and a dollar short

But I had to comment on these pants. They boldly proclaim true love waits on my ass.

Whether she is lounging around the house, going to practice, or doing her chores. These soft athletic style crop pants will keep her comfy. Perfect for wearing with her favorite sweatshirt or tee. These athletic pants boldly proclaim just where she stands by pointing out that “True Love Waits” in a large screen print on the front and back of these pants.

Boldly look at my ass while strains of “Never gonna get it” float through the air. Oh I get it, I’m a sexual object, but I won’t have sex–clever. Problems with these pants:

1. They presume that everyone is familiar with abstinence rhetoric. I mean what does true love wait for? Smooches? Joint tax returns? Rides in Corvettes? Movie dates? Eggs? I need more information!

2. The ad copy all reads “she” so again, girls are the vaginal gatekeepers who must protect their sweet sweet treasure. Abstinence is for the gals–which leaves one to wonder what the dudes are supposed to be doing. One would think that for the message to be effective, both genders should mutually agree not to hump. Apparently, this is women’s work and the boys don’t need to boldly proclaim their abstinence on their ass.

3. Lets turn a nonsexual piece of apparel into a message about sex! It just feels counterproductive.

4. They only come in junior sizes. You gotta get em while they’re young. Alas, it is too late for me, I’ll never get to proclaim something by taking up ad space on my ass–or write in “Eggs” in permanent marker on my own pair. Boo.

  1. Coming in junior sizes is also one of the things they intended to do. Something with the way the b-hinds will show… really show..
