The Most Sexist Ad of All Time
"Hey Moms, if you have kids, does this look familiar?"
Um, I'm not a Mom, and I don't have Kids, and this STILL looks familiar. Maybe because it's f---ing 2015 and even single guys do laundry these days. This Good Housekeeping Better Homes And Gardens Betty Crocker crap really ticks me off-- and the comments underneath this YouTube clip don't exactly restore my faith in humanity; they are mostly "I hear ya!" affirmations from empty-headed clucking idiots almost as proud of the label "Housewife" as they are of their "MRS" degree.
Seriously what the hell is this? "Mom Hacks?" Apparently it's a series of videos designed to help "typical moms" through what is supposed to be their "typical mom" lives- lives which involve preparing meals, cleaning, making beds, arranging and rearranging rooms, picking up after their kids and laundry, laundry and more laundry, all in a big cage--errrr,, house-- that hubby provided as his side of the bargain...err, I mean marriage. When it comes to actually maintaining the home, I don't see a lot of input from Hubby-- oh, but I already forgot; he's out Making All This Possible by bringing home the paycheck. He also gets to impregnate Mom every once in a while- that's part of the deal, after all.
A man doing laundry? I think that would give the people who made these videos the vapors.
"Mom Hacks." Because in someone's world, it's always going to be 1955.
One more Mom Hack- "don't keep a loaded gun near the washer, you might suddenly realize what your life has become. Keep a bottle of Sherry behind the drier instead- you know, like your Mom always did."
