Misty Harris of CanWest News Service responded to the American Family Association’s successful efforts to have Skechers pull their Christina Aguilera advertisements by suggest the campaign equates nursing with “sex slave work” and claiming it “shows that nurses are there to fullfill the sexual needs of patients and physicians.” Harris writes, “It’s enough to drive a sane person to country-western music. The AFA’s use of feminist language to legitimize its moral crusade is peculiar. This organization — whose platforms are at once anti-gay, pro-life and ultra-conservative — is the same group that, on its international website, describes feminists as people who have ‘rejected motherhood and promoted abortion’. Now they want to speak on women’s behalf? You might as well ask Hannibal Lecter to be a spokesperson for the Food Network.”
