A flexible tampon for every cheerleader  

New type of tampon: Playtex Sport. A tampon made for the girl/woman who needs a flexible tampon for when she's active. Sounds good... if the commercial didn't completely ruin the product. The 30 second ad for Playtex Sport could have shown women doing any type of physical activity or playing any kind of sport, and what do they decide to show? Cheerleading.

Empowering. Not that cheerleading isn't an acceptable sport, but why of ALL activities, does it have to be such a stereotypically female activity? Ugh.

What next?

    I second your "ugh". When I first read your "what did they pick? cheerleading" line, I must admit I chuckled. Because it's just so darn typical.
