Political Candidate Offers Voters Two Very Compelling Arguments

Sole Sánchez, a Spanish politician from Menorca, Spain, has recently been accused of sexism over a poster showing her boobs being groped from behind by a man.

Sánchez, a candidate of the Democratic Party, decided to use her best physical assets in the election for the town council of Ciutadella, so she and her colleagues opted for a poster in which she displays her breasts being groped from behind by a man, accompanied by the slogan “Dos Grandes Argumentos”, which translates as Two Big Arguments. They’re big alright, and I’m sure they would have won her the ballots of male voters, but the opposition had something to say about the matter.

The Esquerra de Menorca party denounced Sole Sánchez to the Institut de la Dona (Institute of Women) and claimed sexist use of her body. he defended herself by saying no one is more feminist than her, but everyone has the right to use their body as they see fit, and if all the opposition can do is just sit and watch, that is their problem. She was forced to withdraw her posters, including some in which she appeared in clad underwear with her hands and feet tied in a sadomasochistic way.

This is not the first time Spanish politicians used the naked body as a sure way to secure votes. In 2006, Ciutadans candidate Albert Rivera appeared naked as a symbol of the transparency and simplicity of the party, and to show they had no complexes. It won the party three seats in the Catalan Parliament.

    Heh… so american way again… you must be VERY scared of partitial nudity. So what’s so EVIL in nipples? Sorry to say but this looks SO ridiculous.

    I know it does, but you know what’s even more ridiculous? Being banned from Google Adsense for a photo which showed a woman breastfeeding a cat, in which the nipple didn’t even show. For some reason they called it inappropriate. I didn’t even try to argue with them on it, but I’ve been extra careful ever since… Sorry

    I think this is the most stupid way to promote herself and wining election. She might have fear that she is not so famous and people will not vote for her so she crossed the limits.

    I hope she will NOT win the election and all her efforts go waste :D
