Adverts do have a track record in the last decade or so of showing men as complete simpletons while the wife is the one who comes up with the answer/solution/explanation etc. But this advert is also stupid for not telling me what the product actually does. It spends most of the advert showing us a daydream of how a man could be improved but doesn't show us what the damn thing they are selling does to improve our TV.

As a rule of thumb if you remade the advert with the genders reversed would it be acceptable. Imagine this advert with the man imagining how his lazy, ugly, slobbish wife could be "improved". Would that be okay?

I (as a gal) get tired of the sitcom trope that men are morons who.can't fix anything, can't "babysit" there own dang kids, and are incapable of anything except being sexist pigs.

And Samsung is insulting the demographic they are marketing to?!? This ad is beyond stupid.

You're a farking moron, now buy our product.

So did you happen to read beyond the line you bolded there? If you had, you might come to greater understanding of another's point of view.

How is a greater under understanding of the thought process of a retarded person relevant to the discussion.

/sexism is discrimination based on your gender. Not having something someone else wants.


I don't agree with her definition either--nor yours. But I won't call either of you retarded. Rather, I'll try to encapsulate what's really going on in ways that are fair to both points of view.

1) What really upsets her in the racism/sexism context is white men drawing false moral equivalences between racism by blacks against whites and sexism by women against men. Yes, black people can be racially prejudiced, and women can be sex-prejudiced. But she feels in both contexts that black on white racism/female on male sexism aren't real social problems. Blacks and women have less power to hurt whites/men because of their prejudices than whites/men have to hurt blacks/women because of theirs.

For what it's worth, I absolutely agree with her in the racism context. And 20 years ago I might have agreed with her in the sexism context too.

2) You've confused sexism with sex discrimination. But that's beside the point. What really has you upset is that in your life, you've felt unfairly attacked because either you are white, you are male, or both. You've experienced immense pressure in your life to overcome race and sex based judgments, and you think others should be held to the same standard. So when this professor comes along and says blacks can't be racist, and women can't be sexist, it's an affront to your sense of equity.

I think she's linguistically incorrect. I think her words demonstrate a misunderstanding of linguistics. Words mean what people use them to mean. And people use racism and sexism to describe prejudice based on race and sex, not merely majoritarian prejudice.

But I also think she has a point you can learn from, if you'll take a moment to try to consider the world from a different perspective.

A relief? Every effing commercial involving a husband/wife dynamic portrays the husband as a clueless retard and the wife as the one who sighs and has to fix everything using X product.

There was one last year where wives were talking about training their husbands and housebreaking them. I bet if you flipped the genders you'd never hear the end of it.

It's safe to belittle the group that has it the easiest. But 'relief' my slovenly arse.

I'm sick of hearing about how men cannot be victims of sexism because society innately gives us privilege and women are in a net worse situation. Society gives men different privileges, but it evens out. Both genders face particular challenges that the other doesn't, and have access to particular privileges that the other doesn't. I will never face the level of risk that women face with regard to sexual assault, and I will probably make more money than most women throughout my life. Women will never face the stress of the expectation of making money, or the dread that they will be unloved and insignificant if they don't make partner at the firm, and they do get the benefit of having twelve guys show up at the ready any time they have a flat tire or need a piece of furniture moved.

I used to get so worked up about this that steam would pour from my ears, but lately I've just been shrugging with the satisfaction that people like Gail Dines have little actual influence in society.

I'll save all my outrage, not for the commercial - commercials always pander to the lowest common denominator after all, and are largely below contempt - but for Gail Dines, who argues that sexism and racism can't be directed against white men.

Look, I get it. I really do. You feel aggrieved and persecuted and you feel that white men hoarde all of the societal perks for themselves.

So it gives you a little frisson of excitement, a little tingling down your spine, to demean white men. It gives you a thrill to "speak truth to power" and tell white men that they have everything and have no right to complain. It satisfies you on some deeper level to just not care what white men think and to tell them that they are always in the wrong, and that they cannot, categorically, experience discrimination simply because that are white, and men.

Here's a news flash, though. White men get that exact same tingling, that wondefully warm feeling of "fark you, that's why" when they use a racist slur. They get the exact same feeling when they open their mouth and say some sexist shiat that is derogatory to every woman on the planet. It's the same sort of attitutude and feelings that have driven the past umpteen centuries of white conquest, colonialism, and expansion: "you're not like me, so fark you, that's why."

Congrats, Gail Dines, and everyone that thinks the same way that you do. You have become everything that you profess to hate.

I don't think this post makes sense to anyone that hasn't majored in sociology or women's  or [race]'s studies.
Kudos on playing psychologist, though, it adds more credibility for you to someone out there... possibly.


I didn't major in sociology, gender studies, or race studies. I've never even taken such a class. My undergraduate degree is from a small, very conservative university with very conservative student body. In 1992, the first choice in the Republican primary on my campus was Pat Buchanan. My course of studies included classes with classically ethnocentric names like "early western civilization," "modern western civilization," and "colonial American life."

It doesn't speak well of you that you equate trying to see the world from another's point of view with "playing psychologist." Your sort of egocentrism (an actual psychology term!) is a big part of what's wrong with America today.

That's called the 'Mook' by advertisers. Yes, it exists IRL. She's stating fact, not opinion, and she's right; commercials like that train men to behave that way (along with a lot of other culture).  That's part of why it's sexist; it's encouraging that culture. Half the men I know act like this, and while I sympathize--you are what culture makes you--maybe we should change that culture so we aren't just farking men over.


You really are right off the deep end, and the best part is, it's entirely clear you actually think you are progressive and intelligent.

I'll explain.  Someone makes a pretty good point, while ignoring the blatant sexism and stereotyping of the original author.  You then take that blatant bullshiat one step further and pretend like this is some kind of trend.  Is the concept real?  Sure, the media portrayal constant, probably, I don't know.  What I do know is that, as with almost all things, the stereotype is false, stupid and bigoted.

Not only does the original point pretend that women do all the house work and raise the kids and cook the food.  In and of itself ridiculous.  But you go on and reinforce that bullshiat with your own bullshiat, something along the lines of "men are lazy and disgusting, but it's not their fault because TV made them that way".

Seriously Psigirl, you need a reality check, and it can not come through a TV, nor the (apparently) incompetent instruction you've received in psychology.

Well, it can be helpful to understand how political ideologues distort language in the interest of advancing their goals. Feminists have decided that labels like "sexism" and "racism" have political power and have tried to redefine those terms so as to deny their opponents the use of them.

bugontherug: Walter Paisley: bugontherug: 1) What really upsets her in the racism/sexism context is white men drawing false moral equivalences between racism by blacks against whites and sexism by women against men. Yes, black people can be racially prejudiced, and women can be sex-prejudiced. But she feels in both contexts that black on white racism/female on male sexism aren't real social problems. Blacks and women have less power to hurt whites/men because of their prejudices than whites/men have to hurt blacks/women because of theirs.

For what it's worth, I absolutely agree with her in the racism context. And 20 years ago I might have agreed with her in the sexism context too.

I agree with you, but the issue I take with her statement (and other using similar language) is that her terminology is taking a specific sub-category (institutionalized and/or systematic racism and sexism) and applying it as the definition for a more general term describing a from of discrimination or bigotry. In other words, it's too much like Orwellian newspeak for my liking and it's also poor communication in general.

I don't agree with her usage either. But I don't understand how you equate specialized definitions with Orwellian newspeak. Every specialized discipline uses words in ways different from the public's understanding of them.


Replacing a general term with a specific term limits what can be potentially communicated and I view it as being in the same category as newspeak, just to a lesser degree. It's poor communication because the woman quoted in TFA is using what could be considered jargon definition of a term (I would also apply my criticism in this context - it's even bad as jargon) and expecting the general public to recognize this definition.

"It's not funny because it normalizes masculine behavior and makes a joke of it," she told Yahoo! Shine in a phone interview.

Um...


She's a liberal.
