I Love Sex and I Vote

A short while ago, i blogged that I was dusting off my "I Love Sex and I Vote bumper sticker in honor of Rush Limbaugh and the Religious Right's appalling, savage attack on women.

I made the bumper sticker back in the early days of the George W. Bush Presidency, convinced that the right-wing's attack on women generally and sex specifically was about as bad as it could get. I'm sorry to report that I was very, very wrong on that count.

Since I re-blogged the bumper sticker and the "I Love Sex and I Vote" icons that go with it, I've had a request to make the icons available in different sizes. I've also had several readers email or message me to ask if I would be willing to make more than just a bumper sticker with the logo on it.

So I'm pleased to announce I've set up a CafePress shop with all sorts of things featuring this logo, in addition to the bumper sticker. I've also put the original (100 by 100 pixel and 80 by 80 pixel) icons, as well as two new icons with a blue border available in a lot more sizes.

I think it's important this election cycle to take a visible stand that slut-shaming is not an acceptable part of our society. It's time to push back against people who believe that it's okay to shame people, especially women, for the "crime" of enjoying sex.

Feel free to use the icons below for whatever you'd like.

350 x 350 pixels

250 x 250 pixels

200 x 200 pixels

150 x 150 pixels

100 x 100 pixels

80x80 pixels

I added it as my FL icon a few weeks ago (crediting you of course) and have now seen it a few times on other peoples icons as well!

Here's a Coffee Party video on the subject from a year ago.

in the interest of visibility i think the font you use for the word "sex" might be hard for people on the highway to read. i'd like my grandparents to be able to read it if they're driving behind me. could you do a version with a bolder font?

I don't mean to criticize, i only say this because it's such an excellent bumpersticker

Sorry, but the supposed 'war on women' is so much political hype. The ironic part is, women in the Obama White House make 82 cents for every dollar that men make. Lest you write this off as some right-wing fudging of stats, during the 2008 presidential campaign, women at John McCain's Senate office were making $1.04 for every dollar that men made, whereas women at Barack Obama's Senate office were making 83 cents for every dollar that men made (is ABC News non-right-wing enough for you?). Salary numbers don't do it for you? As late as last September, Time Magazine was comparing the Obama White House to a boys' club.

You need to start looking beyond left-wing and right-wing.
