...what are your thoughts on it?


I was actually pleasantly surprised that they really didn't force any sort of viewpoints on the viewers.

Yes. And women and children would still be chattel.

< A DV victim might find it impossible to see a jokey portrayal of a football player tackling his mother. >

As I said before, if it really is about violence why hasn't she spoken out against the Snickers commercial?

There is no reason that she would have to have spoken out about the Snickers commercial in order for violence to be a legitimate issue in the FOTF commercial.

you know what? Im gonna tell you something I think it was silly to be offended at that ad that was my opinion and I said that.

ANybody an be offended at it and that is cool but I dont have to agree with it.

because someone is offended does that mean I have to be? I would ask you how is that different than anti choice good question.

guess what sweetheart It is a free country and I can disagree with anyone's politics and policies I never have and never wil have any use for women's organizations or feminist views. I don't need them to tell me what I can do I know what I can do.

<< If it weren't for feminism, domestic violence would probably not even be considered a crime.>>I seriously doubt it,talk about a blanket statement with no proof to back it.

that made absolutely no sense at all. There is no difference between what FOTF did in their ad and what snickers did.

It was the same thing.

You know what is funny about that is if you really knew me that would be the furthest thing from what you would say about me.

<< You've thrown a huge blanket over people who use womens' organizations and have painted them all one colour.>>>

No I have not it is not about the women who use them it is about the women who purport to run them with any responsibility at all. The president of now saying that the Tebow ad was really about DV is like the woman who sits in a singles bar and insists that every man in there that looks her way is about to rape her.

<<< Back it up with some fact. >>>

Back what up with fact? the fact that O'NEill is making this about something it's not? that this nonsense about this ad being about DV is a desperate grasp at straws and a last ditch effort on her part to look the victim? To breathe life into remarks that are absent from the ad? To make a mountain of a molehill?

OK. I refer you to her own words.

<< It's time to move from victimhood to survivor mentality. It starts with not disparaging others' experiences just because you don't agree with their politics.>>

I have been a survivor all my life, I know well the lessons of victimhood and you know what I found out about being a victim? It is quite convienient and it is something a whole lot of women like to wrap themselves in when it suits them. I PERSONALLY feel that NOW and organizations like it encourage that sort of desperate behavior in other women. I have chosen a different path and refuse to run with such a sad and bitter herd.

I have no idea. I'd never heard of her before this thread, nor do I know what the Snickers ad portrayed.
