If you're on campus, you may have noticed the retro-themed posters dotting the lampposts around Princeton. Each of the four poster designs sports a song lyric (The Beatles, Jay Sean, Queen, and Beyonce are all represented) that accompanies a vintage image of a couple in a romantic situation.
But why the retro-feel of the images? While the images have a retro air about them, they're coupled with song lyrics that span different time periods and generations-- drawing attention back to the shared values of love and romance that seem timeless, despite being embedded in a retro ad.
This year, Anscombe's posters articulate a positive case for relationships- for courtship and commitment. While people may disagree with Anscombe's particulars--that is, the specifics of how we think these relationships should play out--the posters this year articulate a point of agreement. Sexuality within a framework in which people get to know each other as people first and foremost is a good thing.
