Women: Swarming Mindless Cooing Machines

I searched for this ridiculous Burger King commercial on YouTube the minute I saw it on TV and couldn't find it, but it's up The Hathor Legacy. Check this out:

Get it?! When ladies see things that are little and cute, they lose all control over their mental capacity and become mindless cooing machines. Swarming mindless cooing machines.

GAH! That just makes my feminist brain explode. *goes to find contact link for Burger King* I'm wary of complaining because I already know how I'll be dismissed: "We didn't think this ad was serious *cough* sexist *cough* enough to offend women or men."

Thankfully, I don't eat at Burger King in the first place.

This has really been chapping my ass for the past few weeks. Even more insulting, in addition to all of the above, the swarming mindless cooing sounds distinctly sexual. I guess the idea is that if you close your eyes, it sounds like they've seen puppies, but that is NOT the image I'm getting.

Sandy: I totally agree with you about how sexual it is. I watched this video with the sound down after I posted it, and the women are just heaving in pornographic rhythm. Over some tiny hamburgers. I just find the whole thing repulsive.

I really think you are blowing this out of proportion. There are thousands of commercials that portray men as mindless jackasses. You need to pause and get over it.

Yeah, TRACEY. Pause and get over it already.
