No, I understood your post fine. I was agreeing with you/ being ironic.

I read Samandi that way as well.

I'm not a dumb feminist. Chloroform used to be used as an anesthetic during operations and childbirth. Are they the other uses to which these men are referring?

I'm trying to think of a non super creepy use for chloroform now SGM, Maybe I am just a dumb feminist hmm

I don't get it.

I'm not going to click the link and give them traffic. The thing with Santa sounds like a threat campaign against women not an ad campaign. Who do they want to sell to - rapists? That's an odd target group.

How can they say they've been hacked?

I am very cynical. They KNOW that these kind of things will go viral. They are using it, and using us to get free publicity.

If you click day 2 there's a photo of Santa doing 'thumbs up'

And the caption

"See you when you sleep ladies."

But why? "Necklace or chewing gum", for example, would have made the "some surprises are good, some bad" point just fine, without the VAW message.

Blimey. Who thought that one up?

That is foul.

My first thought was knock her out because she's annoying, not rape. Still, not a good idea to chloroform anyone for any reason, I suppose.

Gosh, I can't believe i forgot to laugh at that classic.

Ah yes, what a great gift and surprise. Where can I buy some? Hilarious. And actually makes sense....

<despairing expression>

Hilarious, no?
