I'm watching the Super Bowl tonight. It's not a bad game.

What is terrible and maddening is the number of commercials that slam women. In an era when men protest a rare "man-hating" book or performance, it is utterly typical that I am feeling belittled and devalued just because I elected to watch TV.

Hope the products' and commercials' producers realize that I'm not going to buy any, and I'm asking my friends not to, either:
Bridgestone Tires
--that's a start.

  1. I mostly tuned out the commercials, forgetting that they were supposed to be "special." But a Facebook friend (not known to you) said pretty much the same thing as you have said here. All I noticed was an excess of men in their underwear.
