Shiny Horny People…

Apparently, this detergent ad from the States had feminists frothing at the mouth (See what I did there?). Something about it being sexist and even encouraging rape or some such. Anyway, the ad has been pulled. Here’s what all the brouhaha is over:

I don’t see it but then I am technically a rapist according to Marilyn French (No. I didn’t hyperlink it. Google her, dammit. Do something for yourself for a change. Sheesh) by virtue of my Y-chromosome and my heterosexuality.

At any rate, I think this ad would have been funnier if it was a guy in the shower instead. And the bubbles were voiced by women.

Wait. Does that statement make me sexist?

  1. Hi

    The article that sparked my blog post can be found here:

    (I found the comments that followed the article of much interest)

    Actually, while I agree the ad is little creepy, for me this whole thing has a rather Motrin flavour to it.
    And having said that, let me also say (before people start readying their pitchforks) that I don’t condone sexual abuse or assault at all.

    I’m just asking:
    1) why all the fuss around some bubbles?
    2) do these people watch the news?
    3) would we feel the same if it was a guy in the shower?

    Devil’s advocate and all that.
