I've watched that video 7 times, still have no clue what Roxy is, and I'm ok with that.
 
2013-07-11 09:18:14 AM  
What, is she supposed to mope around and tell everyone she's ugly and fat and fish for compliments when she knows she's not?
 
2013-07-11 09:41:25 AM  
Why the hell'd she even put that first shirt on?  Is it her email checking shirt or something?
 
2013-07-11 09:43:51 AM  
Did she loose her buttocks in a tragic surfing accident?
 
2013-07-11 10:01:31 AM  
I just watched 1:47 more surfing-related footage than I ever did before in my life and I now know the name of a company I didn't before, so, mission accomplished Roxy.
 
2013-07-11 10:05:18 AM  
Not really sexualising her is it.  Bet more than a few ladies are quietly gasping while displaying a slight shade of jealousy.

On the 'email shirt', not entirely sure that ad is not in real time.  Guessing Roxy don't make shoes.
 
2013-07-11 10:06:07 AM  
Opposing Views?  What are we outraged about today?  Smoking hot surfer + outrage = mad clicks
 
2013-07-11 10:08:04 AM  
The ad, which Roxy released in anticipation of the Pro Biarritz 2013 surfing competition it is sponsoring, never shows Gilmore's face

Why wouldn't they show her...

For the love of the FSM, don't tell anyone, but I have an inside tip for burgeoning marketers out there that nobody has ever thought of.  Ready?....

Sex.  Sells.

Boom!  Right!?  Madison Avenue, here I come.

Get off your self righteous, high (I am not hot and I am pissed about it) horse and STFU.

Feminism is about choice. This female chooses to look sexy. Deal with it uggos.

Because women can't be sexy and also be anything else, right Homo Erectus?

Tragically, your mistake conjures up another unpleasant scenario.

I would do naughty things to Michelle Rodriguez.
 
2013-07-11 10:13:40 AM  
The commercial also shows her using a Windows 8 phone and a Microsoft Surface, which I also find offensive.

It's SURFERS, not people curing cancer. Get a grip, PC morons.

I remember Danica Patrick a couple of years ago or so saying something along the lines "I want to be viewed as a race car driver, not a sex symbol"... while soon after that, she is doing a few sexy ads.

Nothing wrong with doing these types of ads... but if your goal is to be viewed as a race car driver, then maybe you should not be doing too many sexy ads. If you don't do sexy ads, then you won't be treated as a sex symbol as much.

Just sayin'
 
2013-07-11 10:20:39 AM  
She has a nice smile.

CapeFearCadaver: What, is she supposed to mope around and tell everyone she's ugly and fat and fish for compliments when she knows she's not?


The more I see the more I'm convinced that a woman's view of herself has nothing to do with the image in the mirror and everything to do with the people around her. I've met beautiful women that think they are ugly and what I think are unattractive women that think they are Victoria Secret models. And frankly I like a woman that is confident. As I'll tell any woman that asks it doesn't matter what I think is attractive. I'm happily married and you aint got a shot with me. However there are a ton of fish in the sea and I promise you one wants you just the way you are. Fat, think, muscular, black, white, yellow hair, black hair it doesn't matter there is a guy out there who is prepared to worship you as the goddess you are. Now he may or may not be the type of guy you want, but that's not his hang up it's yours.

And talking about images in the mirror!

The people who have a problem with this sound fat.
 
2013-07-11 10:27:35 AM  
Can you imagine how bland and uninspiring our world is going to be once the Social Justice Task Force coerces the public into removing everything sexy, funny, or interesting from our collective consciousness?
 
2013-07-11 10:27:37 AM  
Can you imagine a man in every one of those shots, instead of the woman? I can. Granted, the man wouldn't be crossing his legs in bed, but still.

What does that say to me? It's not sexualized. It's just a clothing ad that attempts to tell a narrative.

Really? I'm not allowed to be picky? Last guy who worshiped me stalked me. No thanks. I'll choose who I want to be with, Mr. Inflatable Hippo.

The 'some people are complaining' seems to be just one other female surfer/photographer ... (Tia Calvo, a self-declared "surf addict")

I could just as easily be 'offended' that Tia is a stoner...
si0.twimg.com

Or I could be 'offended' that Tia associates herself with captive marine mammals...
royal70.net

However, I am not offended, by any of this silliness. All I need are some tasty waves, acool buzz and I'm fine. Save the drama for your mama, twunt.

Quick! To the fainting couch!

How dare they depict a woman as sexy! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! Everyone knows that women should never be thought of in sexual terms, but only in terms of apple pie, mother, sister and, of course, outrageously successful careerists.
 
2013-07-11 10:32:58 AM

You, sir, should be congratulated for turning Studman69 into a verb.  Bravo!

I think you misunderstand, or I miss communicated . Odds are better for the miss communication. I was trying to speck to the females that think their looks have anything to do with finding someone who will find their desirable. There are people who will take you as you are. You do not have to take them however.


I really don't see how you could think I would think that you had to take the first guy who came up.
 
2013-07-11 10:35:50 AM  

that was my nickname in highschool: "Waaaaaaa I can't have that body so sexism waaaaaaa!"

www.womenssurfstyle.com 
Considering that this is the person pointing out the sexism, I think your attempt to call her fat or ugly is misplaced, as well as ironic.
