They seem to from a minor league outrage brigade. They haven't got quite the talent or skill to make it to the big leagues yet.

Snickers, are you trying to tell me if I get hungry I turn stupid and start spouting the same crap those guys do? I'm confused.

Personally, I think a woman enjoys being told she's got a nice ass. If she didn't want that, she wouldn't have squeezed it into a skirt 3 sizes too damned small, obviously.

search engine suggests a man who orally satisfies other men, someone who "really grinds others' gears," and a real estate agent in the midwest.  Given the context and the last photo I'm going with real estate agent in the midwest.

2014-03-31 01:15:36 AM  
It was also coming across my Twitter feed that it was classist because it depicted construction workers as sexist and only enlightened when hungry. I didn't even try to ask about how they came up with that logic.

It's as confusing as hell to me, and I'm a woman.

The reason is that I've walked past any number of men on the street in all sorts of locations and can count on the fingers of one hand the times I've been "shouted at" by them in the past ten years; except where it was "LOOK OUT FOR THE BUS!" or something similar. Men just aren't the sexist assholes Madison Avenue types like to think we think they are anymore. They may be leering or making comments to each other behind my back; but they're not yelling "Hey hot mama let's see those titties!" where I can hear them, and that's good enough for me.
 
2014-03-31 06:17:35 AM  
If a Snickers ad is worthy of this degree of poutrage, life must be pretty darn good in Australia.

And that pampered, delicate little blogger deserves our pity, not our scorn.  It must be painful not being coherent or rational enough to be taken seriously.

/Obviously, that sheila needs a good bloke to look after her.

Snickers is inherently sexist. That's why I named my junk "Snickers." It's got nuts, it really satisfies, and you can eat it between meals.

It was terrible when I was a teenager. I was harassed on a daily basis. Living in the city, I dreaded walking past any group of guys. If you ignored them or told them to screw off, it got scary fast.

However only a handful of times was it something like construction workers. It was usually asshats on apartment stoops, hanging outside storefronts. or driving by in cars.

I'm not sure if it's gotten better for women in general, or if I'm just older and no longer easy or desirable prey.

My wife contends that eating Hardee's is sexist too, based on the half naked models in the ads.

Maybe yes and maybe no, but if they keep putting philly cheese steak meat on a burger, I'll keep going there even if they turn their ads into a Beckham underwear show. That stuff is worse than crack to give up; thankfully it's only seasonal.
