In sixth grade this Pakistani girl who sat in front of me saw me wearing a shirt with a Hawaiian hula girl on it and she said really loudly for the whole class to hear “aren’t you a little too GAY for that shirt?” and I was just like “aren’t you a little too HAIRY for that skirt?” and she started crying and the funniest part is I ended up being gay anyway

What the fuck is this bullshit I keep seeing on every commercial break?
I literally had to watch this four times because I couldn’t quite believe that this could exist in 2013
“WOMEN? EXISTING? IN A STYLE OF MAKE UP AND HAIR THAT ISN’T MY PERSONAL PREFERENCE? THEY ARE FREAKS AND MUST BE IMMEDIATELY CHANGED FOR MY VISUAL PLEASURE.”
Don’t forget that the voiceover guy specifically refers to them as “things.”
WOMEN ARE THINGS
HOW DID I MISS THAT
Also, that in the “before” they’re focused on each other and their own conversation, but “after” they’re focused on him and giving him flirtatious smiles and shit.
So: women in a public place are things that you deserve to have changed and rearranged so that they are attractive to you and interested in you.
-flips a fucking table in anger-
^^^^^^^&hulksmash. WTF is this nonsense.
what the actual fuck
im so frusterated im trying not to cry
i think you’re all reading way too deep into a 17 second commercial about beer being made from natural ingredients. it also has nothing to do with a personal preference of women. women don’t naturally have make up on, they don’t naturally have their hair done up, either. as for the flirtatious stuff, well, when people drink, don’t they loosen up, socialize, and flirt? that’s what happens at social gatherings with drinks, right?
edit: oh right may as well just point out “things” is used in a generalized statement, not directly about people. like big things are happening on tumblr when people fucking freak out about shit that doesn’t matter.
oh thank god i thought this commercial was sexist but now that some dudebro has mansplained the sexism away i can relax and continue to enjoy my life. thank you, dudebro. i don’t know what all us foolish ladies would do without you.
let’s pack it in, girls. nothing sexist to see here.
You know what’s really sexist? Assuming that just because someone is a guy means they aren’t allowed to have valid opinions on what is and isn’t sexist and offensive.
If I were out here condescendingly referring to you as a “ladychick” who “femsplained” the sexism of this commercial to us “dudebros,” I’m sure you and plenty of other women (and feminists of all genders) would be livid, and rightfully so. Because trying to invalidate somebody’s stance on something just because of their gender is sexism in and of itself.
(Also: it was completely unnecessary since there were plenty of parts of his argument that were so wafer thin, you could have easily shut him down with an actual response to his comments)
Comments on my text posts are not cute
ahhh but there truly is an important message in this that everyone seems to be missing
you’re from the 70s but I’m a 2040s bitch
