Do you like looking at pictures of naked strangers? If you do, you’re in luck: The internet is full of them. (So I’m told!)
While the vast majority of pornographic images come with a price tag, there are plenty of free sites out there.
So when someone comes along and offers to send you a “naked picture” in exchange for “proof” that you voted for a candidate other than Donald Trump (more on this presently), you have to wonder what that person’s been smoking.
Yet, that’s the arrangement that the social advocates at Tramps Against Trump are offering.
According to Mashable:
The Tramps offer a unique incentive for voting against Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election — they will send you “personalized nudes for the politically engaged.”
I don’t know what makes the picture “personalized” — there’s nothing on the website that clarifies this — but the “politically engaged” part is something of a turn-off. Judge for yourself by visiting the site’s Tumblr page. [Warning: Some full-frontal nudity. Also NSFW.]
The article quotes Tramps spokeswoman Jessica Rabbit as explaining:
Our main objective … is to get millennials who otherwise might not engage in the election to show up and vote…. Tramps Against Trump does not endorse any presidential candidate — we simply are advocating for anyone but Trump.
So how do you prove you voted for someone other than Trump? You actually can’t. The website specifies that you need to provide photographic evidence of a voter receipt or “I Voted” sticker in order to receive your nude. But those demonstrate only that you voted. They don’t reveal for whom you cast (or didn’t cast) your ballot.
That’s all assuming you attach little enough value to your vote to be willing to sacrifice it for a single nude picture.
