Bumper stickers, images, outrage

A couple in Texas had a sticker made and mounted it on their truck.  It stated,

“F‑‑K TRUMP AND F‑‑K YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.” (The profanity is spelled out on the sticker.)”

Sheriff Troy Nehls sought to charge the owners of the truck and when he was thwarted on rights of free speech, he targeted the owners by digging up an outstanding warrant against the woman, and arrested her.

She, in turn, made a second sticker, to place alongside the first:

“F-CK TROY NEHLS AND F-CK YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.”

In researching the history of women and cars, I found some controversies around sexualized decals/stickers, like this one that sparked debates about First Amendment rights in Great Falls, Montana:

Closer to home in the parking lot of my local PetSmart the car of an employee is adorned with this sticker:
