    Sure. There are intellectual cowards that fail to address the point at times... I see you are not addressing the point in this thread.

    It's actually a more equal distribution IMO, even if some find it obvious or crass or even demeaning.
    I understand all of that and I don't mind as long as it is OK to make fun of women in commercials, which it isn't as far as I can tell.

    I wish I had something profound & intellectually insightful to add - I don't.

    But, after a little YouTubing, I found I like the commercials!
