A nonpartisan political analyst says Obama's new ad featuring a young woman describing her "first time" voting for the president in terms similar to losing her virginity is "nothing short of demeaning and sexist" towards women.
"As a woman, I am horribly offended by this ad," Kara Mone of CatholicVote.org told CNA Oct. 26.
In the ad, 26 year-old actress and writer Lena Dunham, tells the camera that, "Your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy – someone who really cares about and understands women."
"A guy who cares about whether or not you get health insurance, specifically whether you get birth control," Dunham added.
