Dear world


I love that this is a poster for a show where single parents look for love. I've got enough prejudice to think this poster would be unusual in a different country. In the US, could you put up a naked baby against a man's bare chest like that? Discuss.

  1. you could, but in no way would there be a show about single parents publicized by a dad's chest. the assumption here is mother all the way.

  2. But the programme is called "Single mum seeks" (or rather, "lonely mum"). I think it is horrific. Mostly because the children depicted in this docusoap are real human beings without a say as to how (and that) they are portrayed on national television, victims of profitseeking dumd-ass entertainment and their mothers' lack of integrity. Further, I find it sad that the children should be at all involved in their parents quest for love and that if two adult people fall for one another whether either of them is a parent should not enter into the equation.

  3. I agree with Jenny that you could, but disagree that it couldn't be a show publicized by a dad's chest... the key is "publicized"... in the US, anything goes as long as it gets ratings and is different enough to attract attention. I could also see it being some kind of public service announcement or something about single fathers or another serious topic.

  4. The baby appearing to be sucking on the guys nipple really creeps me out.

  5. I'm with J. I think the show would exist and even have a man as an advertisement simply due to everyone is expecting most of the "single folk" to be women...but the look of the baby against man boob...not so much! yuck!
