    I can just see the headlines now: Rampant Raping of Small Men by Large Women: Men Afraid to Go Out at Night. Police Departments overwhelmed with men rape kits. No clear suspects or evidence...but eye witness, Mason said he once saw a large woman rape a small man. Men everywhere are advised to carry protection.
    Since when is domestic violence rape?

In another commercial she is on a ladder and asks for help balancing and she pulls his face into her ass... literally.

    What the ****? I think it is funny but it is clear cut sexism that it is OK, AND FUNNY, to sexually harass a man.

    Imagine if the roles where reversed and a man did that to a woman in a commercial? Firings... suing... protests.

    So, why is a double standard acceptable and this Poll is primarily directed to women. Do you think it is acceptable and if so... why?
    Until fairly recently, a great deal of marketing was directed to men on exactly this same thing. And cooking and cleaning and kid stuff to women. People then started commenting on objectifying women. But it's still one of the strongest focuses (foci) for marketing....sex appeal. And now they use it to appeal to women too.

    It's actually a more equal distribution IMO, even if some find it obvious or crass or even demeaning.

    Since you responded to my post about "homosexuals getting raped by heterosexual males."

    So, does that mean you really didn't see a large woman rape a small man?

    Of course it is humour. I laughed myself. Then I thought about the double standard.

    Kinda' hard to evaluate video based upon a narrative ...

    And that is why women use weapons. Pots, pans, brooms, etc. Being attacked does not mean being annihilated... it means being attacked.
