Obviously locker room humor is responsible for Jack-in-the-Box’s latest commercial. I read somewhere once someone whining about how feminists waste time when we point out sexism and misogyny in mainstream culture, because supposedly it does little to nothing for feminism. I disagree. Not everyone is aware of sexism and misogyny in commercials, even when it is whacking one over the head. Perhaps, I should say why I think this commercial is horrible, but, there are times when all one can do is roll one’s eyes. That is after the twitching and wrenching and flinching subsides, that my sexism-radar invoked.
Do you find the following commercial sexist?
