This is the video that is anti-choice, woman-killing, and hatefully bigoted?:
Uhhhhhhhh…. Rage. Rage. Rage!
“This is a misleading commercial, produced by one of the most hateful and divisive organizations in the U.S. Everyone, unless they are mentally ill, is focused on their family; we don’t need an organization that would like to turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy, comparable to the tyrannical state of Saudi Arabia, telling us to focus on the family. Focus on the Family is a misogynistic, extreme right wing, Christian organization that uses a ruse like this ad to make it seem more moderate.”
If you think the rage from this benign ad was crazy, can you imagine if they would have tried to play this pro-life ad from the 1986 Super Bowl?:
Might think the sky is falling by now…

- I am sure we (I) will hear a lot about the sexism of the ads during the game. Dividing people by sex is SO OFFENSIVE! Like this one. If you obey your wife (or claim that she ever commands you to do something), you are sexist, according to Feministing. I thought it was that if your wife obeys you, you’re sexist. Make up your mind… But maybe that is a false dichotomy. I guess sexist is mentioning the words woman or man, at all, ever. Either that or I am missing something. Ahhhh, the oversensitivity of insecure individuals… You will probably not hear a word in protest (unless you are friends with an idiot) of how commercials love to portray men as incompetent, lazy, or dumb. No double standards here… Why don’t we try talking about sexism in portraying women in one light – as sex objects. Oh, that’s because that type of commercial “empowers” women. I forgot for a second where our values lie… (/sarcasm)
