20 Things I Find Offensive About This Red Cup

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Where do I even start?

How about here:

1. A Mermaid logo? Really? Pretty degrading for Merwomen everywhere.

2. The fact the Mermaid isn't wearing a shirt.

3. What, like the only way a woman can be a logo is if she's topless? Typical.

4. Or if she is wearing a shirt, um.... how come? Free the nipple much? #progress

5. The crown on her head. I don't like what it stands for.

6. Aristocracy isn't right!

7. And who are you to call her a mermaid? The correct term is Merwoman as stated above. Women of the sea, like women of the land, aren't maids to anyone!

8. Her large chest. Like c'mon.

9. The perfect eyebrows.

10. Like why is her skin so good? I see zero flaws.

11. The white lid. What exactly are you trying to say with that, Starbucks? WHAT?

12. The size of the cup. Too tiny.

13. The shape is small on the bottom, but bigger up top? Um, I'm sorry. Why don't you just stop beating around the bush, Starbucks.

14. The tone of red used. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Two words: Devil Worship.

15. The weight. Like why is this cup so light? Do you have a thing against heavy cups???

16. Her hair extensions. She's setting unrealistic expectations for young girls.

17. Lack of diversity. Why are all of the cups red right now?

18. Why is Starbucks still using cups, anyway? They are killing the earth.

19. And what's with the word cup? As in cup size? As in boobs? Why must everything be so sexual?

20. Everything else.

I'm done. I can't even.

I hope everyone reads this post and agrees 100% with my thoughts and beliefs. Changes needs to be made! Now.


  1. Right? Definitely some devil worshiping sexism from Starbucks here. #boycott4eva

  2. Lol. As Ellen called it....a Satan Sipper. Straight up Satan Sipper. I am boycotting. Until tomorrow morning when I whiz through the drive thru for my PSL because #thedailybasic. :)

  3. Lol! Too funny! So many are offended by stupidest things! Our country is turning into a bunch of damn sissys!!! Terrified for the future of our kids!!

  4. #18 is the best! And don't forget they strip the trees to get the cofee beans! Horrible! lol

  5. Actually, I'm offended that you're offended and you should know I am more offended than you. Offended. Because I haven't said offended enough. Offensive. Offense. Defense. On the fence. Over the fence. And I know I should end this because I just made myself snort and the dogs looked at me funny.

  6. I had to read this post, I knew it was going to be great!

  7. That damn Starbucks. Always finding ways to ruin people's lives and crush our beliefs and values! DEVIL WORSHIPPERS for sure.

    Oh wait, nope, I'm not crazy enough to be offended by a cup.

  8. I love this! Save the Merwomen. and yea, what are they trying to say about those white tops...ummmm!!!!!

  9. This is great :) Thanks for the little chuckle this morning!

  10. You always make me laugh Tay! I love reading your daily posts!

  11. My Dunkin's cup this am says "JOY" on it... So take that, Starbucks
    (I think the controversy of the red cup is ridic)

    Feathers and Stripes

  12. SO TRUE. It seems to have the ombre look now and that's offensive to me because my roots are growing out. are theymaking fun of me?!

  13. I might throat chop anyone clogging up the line in front of me that tells the barista their name is "Merry Christmas" For reals......... give me my coffee............ and maybe, no one will get hurt. I don't get why people think a coffee company has to cater to them for Christmas with a special cup, and I don't think it is Christians causing the fuss, cuz we don't think a flying reindeer symbolizes Christ's birth. But the red cup is very pretty, I like it. :) BTW my life would be a lot less awesome without my daily viewing of your snaps.

  14. Hahahahaha
    Thank you for bringing some laughter to my day!

  15. I swear I didn't see this post when I commented on your Insta, but hey... blogger minds think alike, eh? CRACKED up over this one!

  16. This literally made my day! I will be the first one to tell you that I am a Christian but seriously?! It's a red cup. I don't understand what all the issues are about it! Maybe Starbucks just wanted to have an ombre red cup this year. People crack me up!

  17. 100% agree, of course! Bring on the diversity with a different color or a different shade of red!

  18. Imagine if they changed the red cup to a green cup this year... there might have been wars.

  19. Hmmmm... no Beverly comments? I'm offended. Also, I believe 2016 is the year of the merman.

  20. Hilarious! This is the best post over the Red Cup Controversy i've read!!

  21. Starbucks is named after the everyman character in Moby Dick - Starbuck. The mermaid is part of the literary story.

  22. Hahaha I love this so much! Thanks for the laugh!
