If You Care About Ending Sexual Assault, Girlcott Method Products

If this didn't already guarantee that I will never, ever buy a Method product, then this sure as hell does.

Despicable.

This is sort of a shame, because I'm so attracted to the simple packaging of the Method handsoaps. Of course, I've never bought them because they're too expensive, so this only helps me in that regard.

Boycott is a person's name, though, if that helps.

Oh, I wasn't using "girlcott" to counteract sexism in the word "boycott". There's a feminist history of calling feminist boycotts "girlcotts".

That is indeed unfortunate - if they were willing to suspend the ad campaign I might feel slightly inclined to buy Method products again - but nope. That's too bad because I do like their products and have bought a few of them - but I won't be buying them anymore.

I don't care what sort of feminist history there is. It's stupid is what I'm saying.

Oh, um, sorry. Kidding. Love you.
