Blamer Maria sends in this link to a photo of a Manhattan billboard. The billboard advertises mini-storage. It has a picture of a wire clothes hanger and the words “Your closet space is shrinking as fast as her right to choose.”
It’s delightful the way the hanger image is a sort of visual double-entendre. Abortion, closet space; it’s a natural! Co opting — for the purpose of selling mini-storage — an image that for decades has been emblematic of violent oppression may seem, at first blush, to trivialize it, but see here: as long as it’s done cleverly, and serves capitalist enterprise, how wrong can it be?
