Online Dating Rights. Mail Order Brides
PragueVietnamMoscowGuatemala

FOUR REASONS American men seek romance abroad: Prague, Ha Long Bay, Red Square, small villages in Latin America. Somehow meeting a Czech, Vietnamese, Russian or Peruvian/Colombian/Brazilian woman for a date at one of these exotic places is incomparably more exciting than meeting a hometown girl at the local coffeeshop. Opponents of a man's right to meet foreign women online never stop to consider how enjoyable it is to travel/work/live abroad and learn new cultures and languages while seeking a marriage partner.

...than than the contest itself.

They absolutely HATE being ignored and lose their minds if mocked. But that makes it all the more fun

This is brilliant from a marketing perspective.

Advocacy groups that get taxpayer money for "protecting" foreign women and the thoughtless media call foreign woman a "mail order bride" if she met her husband via internet.  This is American imperialism, it is denigrating, insulting and portrays the women as helpless fools.

My impression of this contest is that it belittles the International Marriage Broker industry.  It feeds into the stereotype that feminists promote that men “buy a wife”.

From a marketing perspective, I think this is a “Howard Stern” type moment for them.  It will appeal to and amuse the radio station’s audience.  It also attracts more attention to the station.

But what is most fun about this is how it draws out the feminist reaction. Despite the very small number of men who are proactive in their search for a foreign wife, this topic really raises feminist hairs. It is also a precursor for the barrage of commentary that will accompany the first IMBRA prosecution case.

Yes, this will be added to the list of dating sites that also use slick marketing as "proof" that the men who go abroad for love are sleazy.
