Sexist video day!  

While surfing YouTube, I came across a particularly appalling video for the song "A Little Too Late" by Toby Keith, in which he appears to be some sort of crazed maniac, and a huge fan of violence against women. I'm aware that usually the artist doesn't have much say in his/her music videos, as a director is hired to put them together, but come on, Toby Keith. How could you think this was okay?

This prompted me to search for "sexist videos" on YouTube and I came across a lovely vintage Folgers ad that promotes the duty of every housewife to make a perfect cup of coffee for her deserving husband. All I can say is: as cool as the 50s can be, I'm so grateful I didn't have to live during them.

And just to avoid being a downer, here's a really funny commercial that I love. Hope it puts a smile on your face.

What next?

    when your woman gives you sass, just bury her in a brick wall! wtf
    this is reminiscent of poe's "cask of amontillado" only white-trashier

    and its fucking SICK how at the end he starts saying "oh come on baby, you know how i get with my temper" and "we always have little fights like this but we can work it out".... "you know i didnt mean anything by it"
    it nauseates me because these are VERY common things that abusers REALLY say to the women (and i know, men too) they abuse to get them to stay.

    and fuck him, with the "you got a big mouth" and "your cooking stinks". go fuck yourself, really.
