A couple weeks ago, Maureen brought our attention to a recent ad campaign from the folks at Got Milk? that was seriously troubling.
Shortly thereafter, the Funny Or Die peeps brought us a satisfying comeback with some precious parodies:
But some feminist bloggers aren’t so sure they work, as tumblinfeminist points out:
I can’t decide if these are parodying the original advertisements’ sexism, are just busing a chance to be sexist (as per usual), or if they are just as sexist and annoying with good intentions to parody the sexism in the original ads.
I think they’re pretty spot on, especially with the cum shot thing. I’m sure that there are women out there who enjoy a good splooge in the face – but I am not one of them, and I’m appalled when I hear dudes talk about it. I feel like this is a side effect of our ever -influential porn industry, and the lack of good sex education. If the only information pubescent teens are getting is from free porn that they’re watching on the internet – they’re going to expect that sex includes hairless vaginas and ends with a facial.
