    One of their music videos has them protesting in a department store.

    Was this created by Ford in India too?

    Let’s hear all the righteous indignation about misogyny in Germany
    like there was about India.

      Boy, some people really do think it’s all about THEM, don’t they?

      Female sexuality, is at most, only 50% about men. Difficult as it may be to believe, some women actually enjoy sex and feeling sexy.

      There is a difference between exhibitionism and misogyny, just like there’s a difference between patronizing token blondes on Fox News and burning widows alive to keep them from remarrying.

        Oh I get it.
        When the towel heads do it, it’s misogyny.

        What a bunch of racist bullshit.

  4. It must be cold.

    The best thing about Pussy Riot was it got news readers all over the world to say pussy on TV, again and again and again.

    Am I supposed to be offended? Maybe this relies on a knee-jerk reaction against all businesses that I simply lack, but I am left wondering why this matters. It either represents a greedy, amoral business interest crassly exploiting an international controversy for profit -an event which happens so frequently that it no longer really warrants paying any attention- OR it represents a genuine attempt on the part of a German business to engage in meaningful social activism -which would be laudable.

    I don’t automatically hate anyone who tries to earn money, because that would be stupid. I reserve my ire for those who try to earn money to the detriment of everyone else, and making lingerie seems benign enough to me.

    • Because last episode Yoko Ono gave them the John and Yoko Peace Grant and we had a lot of fun with that and Yoko herself.

      Where is Yoko anyway? Trying to get some more flesh off that dead Beatle carcass? You notice they didn’t ask Yoko to sing for the commercial, did they?

  7. Leave them in there. They were incredibly stupid and underestimated their foe.

    No talent and dumb as a bag of hammers, what a combo!

    i swear, I don’t think half of the regulars on disinfo would be happy unless all people did was sit and home racked with guilt for ever being born
