1. Indeed kestrel,

 

If a woman is not upset by so much of this, she is not paying attention.

2. I guess I am surprised that you didn't notice before.

3. I don't tend to visit the women's groups much after all the drama a while back,

but I thought it telling that certain DUers who seem to stir up shit on all manner of topics found it necessary to come onto that thread and make mocking, sexist remarks and express complete approval of the ad.

On the bright side, my Ignore list is a little bigger now.

4. What's an "internet woman"? A guy faking it?

7. haven't looked at the others yet, just the beaver--I was going to say, that could not POSSIBLY

be a real ad, but, in the brief glance at the replies, I see that it is (do not have the stomach for looking at the others yet, have not yet had sufficient caffeine)

yes, it is offensive, and so are many of the replies. can see I have some work ahead of me this morning.

the sexism on this supposedly democratic, progressive board makes me want to resort to poppets again. siggghhh.

8. having had a second cup of coffee, I finally made it through the responses. considering the

usual suspects, not much surprise in some of the responses. have had encounters with several of them in other threads, and have given up even trying to talk to them.

will be calling playtex, glad there is a number to reach them. again, when I first saw that, could not believe it was a real ad (yet another reason to know that "mute" and "back" on the remote are two really important inventions)
