So, I was just watching TV with Dan (the fiance), and the annoying Burger Shots commercial I posted about a while back came on. After I loudly expressed my disgust for this commercial for making women out to be mindless automatons who melt at the sight of something small, Dan felt it necessary to point out that my post about this commercial came only a few days after this post, in which I melt over a video full of tiny animals making various uses of a cell phone screen.
I insisted through my laughter that there's a difference between baby animals and baby hamburgers! and that there's a difference between this commercial and that one!
It was definitely an amusing observation. However, I still hold that even though I might fall into a stereotype now and then doesn't mean that groups of women should be depicted in a stereotypical fashion to sell meat on television.
