For many years, the government had run advertising around appropriate etiquette for things like public transport seating, smoking in public, and littering, to promote positive community behaviour and social cohesion.
But after a political scandal where the government was accused of funding ads for their re-election in the guise of community information, the funding and responsibility for this advertising was moved to the Public Etiquette Board – an independent body able to make its own decisions about what public behaviour to promote and what advertising to fund.
It was something of a coup for elite men’s organisations that they managed to stack the Board with their representatives, turning what should have been an unbiased independent authority into a well-funded body for the subjugation of women.
Their first campaign was simple enough. It slogan was “Make An Effort”, and it encouraged women to attempt to look attractive at all times. It contrasted girls dressed in rumpled, loose clothes – who were portrayed as rude bitches, and booed by people on the street – with girls in attractive slutwear, who were well-liked and successful.
Their second campaign was very specific. “Show Your Tits In The Elevator – It’s Just Polite”. It simply showed women routinely exposing their breasts while riding in elevator cars. At first, many women were baffled by the strange ads. However, many police officers with an interest in humiliating women noted the advertisement, and would spend their off-duty hours riding in elevators in high-traffic public buildings. When a woman entered the elevator car and didn’t expose her breasts, the police would arrest the woman for “offensive behaviour in public”.
The results of this varied. Sometimes the woman would apologise, and blushingly expose her breasts, and the cops would let her go. Sometimes they would march her out of the building, but then “let her off with a warning” after blackmailing her into giving them a blowjob in a nearby alleyway. If they took the woman all the way back to their station, sometimes she would be released immediately if a less cruel officer was in charge of the paperwork, but other times she would be kept overnight in a cell, naked, with her clothes seized as evidence.
In any case, women soon started exposing their breasts in elevators, never sure of whether another passenger might be a police officer. Many began to believe it had *always* been a basic rule of etiquette that they simply hadn’t been aware of – because why would the ads tell her to do it if it wasn’t something that was normal?
The third campaign was more subtle. “Respect His Boundaries. This is *HIS* zone.” And the pictures showed a woman with her hands by her sides, or behind her back, with the area from her neck to her knees outlined in a blue box.
This campaign taught women that touching, covering, or protecting the front of their body was rude, and an invasion of men’s personal space. Women learned that their hands belonged by their side, or behind their back, or fiddling with their hair or ears. If the front of her dress needed adjusting, she should ask a man to do it. If she spilled food or drink on her tits, she should ask a man to clean it. If a man was squeezing her tits, she could ask him politely to stop, but she couldn’t protect her breast, or pull away, or interfere with his grip on her. The subtext was that her tits and pussy didn’t belong to her, and as more and more models and celebrities were routinely photographed in these new submissive poses, it began to seem normal to copy that behaviour, and uncomfortable and embarrassing for a girl to have her hands in front of her body.
The fourth, and definitive, campaign was the most successful. “Rape Is A Compliment. Say Thank You.” It showed recently violated girls, often nude and with cum on their face, smiling at their abusers and sincerely thanking them. It showed girls with black eyes or bruised tits giving their rapist a passionate kiss. It showed girls getting violently raped one night, and then attending their rapist’s house the next day with gifts, and spreading their legs to give their rapist another chance at them.
It was a double-edged sword for women. If they were raped, and didn’t thank their rapist, a criminal conviction for their rapist would also see the woman convicted for offensive behaviour. But if they did say thank you, the police would flat-out decline to investigate, because how could it be rape if the woman had thanked the man who did it to her?
For their next campaign, they already had a slogan in mind – “It’s Rude Not To Be Wet”. And the police were eager to perform strip searches on any girl they suspected of offensive behaviour…
