The Manwich angry

The NHS radio ad about how children with health conditions should have the flu jab.

Apparently only mums care about their children or have any responsibility for their wellbeing. Makes me very angry. They could have said "parent" and the ad would have given exactly the same message without reinforcing the cultural norm that dads aren't responsible for their children's care.

I'm not sure if it's sexist as such as it's shows the 'men' in a pathetic light but the Lynx 'premature perspiration' advert shown in every advert between Fresh Meat. There are a couple of young men sitting on a sofa and their flat mate walks in to show them her newly acquired outfit. They squirm about in the throws of a fake orgasm, unable to disguise their arousal at seeing the sexually alluring woman. Amusing the first time, tiresome on the third, forth, fifth, ad infinitum. Anyway, it makes me gurn and switch over until the ads have finished!

Cravendale ad! It uses the word pussys! shock

Advert for tampons. Only aimed at women. I think its appalling.
