...what are your thoughts on it?


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

< we don't need your two cents.>


It's a public debate board. You have no right whatsoever to decide whose 'two cents' we need.

The Snickers ad portrayed a group of male friends playing a game of football. One of the players hadn't eaten in a while, and so he was playing sluggishly and was portrayed as Betty White. Once he took a bite of the Snickers bar, he turned back into his young, male self and played much better. The slogan was "When you're hungry, you don't feel like yourself." (That might not be the exact, word for word slogan, but that was the idea.)


I think a few guys playing football and eating a Snickers bar is loads different than an ad where a guy randomly runs up behind his mother, without her seeing or knowing he was there, and tackling her. Especially when the slogan for that ad is "Celebrate family, Celebrate life."


That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it. ; )

<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. >


It's so sad that you feel this way about the women who essentially bought your freedom.

<<< 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. >


Are you really so unaware of history? Domestic violence became a crime in the US in

OH olease! they didnt but my freedom.

I still get paid 70 cents on a man's dollar for the same work,I still get the double standadrd when it comes to having a family and hey yeah I still hit my head on a glass ceiling so what in the world have feminists really bought me? The right to bellyache and complain?

The right to play the victim card whenever I like and to cry wolf when it suits? No thanks I don't think so I bought my own freedom I fight my OWN fights and no tired bitter cows are going to claim any victories for me.

<< Are you really so unaware of history? >>>

Oh I'm very aware of it.

<>

Really because My father was getting away with it clear up until the 90's.

<>

It still was in 1985 and I live in california.

<< The first domestic violence shelters in your country were opened by that well-known feminist, Gloria Steinem who was in the forefront of the anti-DV campaign in those days. A campaign almost exclusively run by feminists. It was a major part of the Second Wave struggle.>>>

I'm well aware of when DV shelters were opened and where they are in my state and town I have been there before. You know civil rights kicked off the abolition of jim crow laws but that does not mean that everyone started acting right because the LAW said so. I think you have a very naive view of what life might be like in MY country in this regard especially back then.
