Calvin Klein "rape" ad.





Lady Gaga "Bad Romance"

Video from: YouTube.com
Gaga’s ’Bad Romance’ video details young women being kidnapped, abused, drugged and exploited - ultimately sold to the Russian Mafia for undoubted rape and slavery. Yet the message is : This is sexy and desirable. These situations are monstrous and horrific, but you girls should embrace it like Gaga has. If you want to be "valuable" like Gaga, you better have a body like that and learn to dance!
