Smashing The Patriarchy One Travel Trip at a Time

Smashing The Patriarchy One Travel Trip at a Time

Ha. Just kidding. As you'll find out, this video just reinforces the whole goddamn system.



So there you go, just in case you didn't happen to see it on the front page of reddit or anything. It basically encourages women to participate in sex tourism, and travel the globe, by becoming the object of sex tourism.

Like, there's something to be said of the woman who has the agency to game a bunch of idiot rich fuckers into letting her travel, but at the same time the ad and way this is being fucking created is horrendous in terms of sex tourism, class, and misogyny.

You sort of have to wonder if this is actually a company or just some gross patriarchy "satire" skit that FunnyorDie created about how being pretty and using those looks to get free travel means you have the ability to actually be a whore. But I assure you, it's a fucking dating website. So it is actually real.

And the world weeps a little with this latest endeavor of marketing women for the bourgeoisie.

I can only imagine the women who take part of this. Can they actually put this down on their resume?
Resume:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology: BS, MBA
Employment history: General Electric; Microsoft; several shady self-service prostitution websites
But it appears they actually have some standards.... hmmmmm
MissTravel.com is intended to be used as an online dating website. Our members expect to find genuine profiles, with genuine opportunities to fall in love and enter into a relationship. We understand that every member has a different motivation for joining this site, but we do not support any members who are registering as escorts. This is not an escort site, nor will we permit any type of escorting on this site. MissTravel.com is strictly an online dating service for people who are looking for a travel partner.

If you are an escort, who has advertised your services on any escort website, you are not allowed to use this website. We encourage our members to report any suspicious activity or requests of this nature, and will act upon any complaints.
Well, I guess it's good to know they have some standards... You an escort? NO DICE! But hey, if you just want to travel for free with the suggestion that you will spread your legs for that plane ticket, shopping experience and room and board.. it's all good.
