WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME GOT MILK? HELD A LEGIT ANTI-WOMAN RALLY?
THIS IS LIKE THE BAD MARKETING DECISION THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
ALSO I REALLY LIKE THAT THIS ARTICLE IS FILED UNDER ‘SEX CRIMES’
The new set of ‘Got Milk?’ ads has everybody talking today, and a lot of the rhetoric is taking on the sexist and plain stupid ads extremely well. Now it seems they’ve also staged a fake protest, in the name of humor because lol isn’t it funny to conceive of PMS as a man’s problem because women are just so goddamn bitchy when they get to their time, am I rite?
Ugh. Listen: it isn’t funny because this isn’t new. Men making jokes about women PMS-ing is as old as the term itself. Not only is the whole “women are so irrational lol” concept horrendously outdated and sexist (PMS is the new hysteria), but the joke itself isn’t even funny, or new. It’s a joke for men at the expense of women, and I’ll say it again: it isn’t even funny.
Of course, what they want more than anything else is people to be talking about it. So, in that way, they’re probably pretty happy right now. Here’s the website. You can go to it or not, but just know that they’re happy getting the hits right now, no matter what your opinion.
A fucking all man anti-woman protest!? Now tell me I’m being ridiculous, tell me this is all in good fun, tell me other companies are more sexist than this bullshit!
seriously though, i don’t get it.
We truly live in a post-sexism society *rolls eyes*
It just keeps getting worse…
