Perhaps the worst, least sexy thing one can do is politicize the normal sexual tension that exists between heterosexual men and women. That is to say, short of criminal and/or deviant activity, men and women expressing sexual desire for one another — even in a public way, assuming it’s respectful of societal norms — is healthy.
Which is why it’s always so strange when the more rabid of the feminist stripe freak out over what is essentially a biological pull. The magazine Cosmopolitan knows this. They’re famous for it, in fact. So their party bus full of models they intend to use to shuttle voters from North Carolina State University to the polls next week makes sense. They’re that kind of outfit.
The bus is part of a contest won by the university, and the latest in Cosmo’s foray into political coverage. This year, the magazine endorsed candidates in 10 races — all Democrats — based on their views on abortion, contraception, and equal pay.
“On Election Day, a bus decked out with snacks, swag, and models (hi, this is Cosmo) will roll up to North Carolina State University, the winner of Cosmopolitan.com’s first-ever party bus contest,” the magazine said. “The bus will shuttle students back and forth to a nearby polling location so students can vote.”
