ramblings of an Irishwoman...I’m like the King Arthur of sophomoric d*ck jokes. But it’s not always easy to find new things to say... I’ve been wondering if maybe I should expand my range a little, by commenting on Recent Developments in Feminism. I have a lot of opinions. Here, I’ll give it a shot. Here are some Recent Developments in Feminism
1. Fling candy bar. The feminist blogosphere reported on this sparkly, low-calorie bar with pink packaging, being marketed with the tag line “pleasure yourself.” People are mad because it’s being sold as the candy bar for women, and the whole thing is so sexist. Hey, wait a minute, though! Isn’t all candy for women? Am I right, ladies? (Because we love chocolate.) The real challenge would be to keep women away from it! You’d have to go to extreme lengths. The advertising slogan would have to be something like “The candy bar that rapes your mouth with flavor!”.
My own suggestion, if marketers want to create a bar that women won’t buy, is to put a picture of a spider on the packaging. “Spider candy bar: There’s a spider in the bathtub!” It would be a marketing disaster.
2. The pull-out method. Science has discovered that the withdrawal method of birth control is more effective than it was previously though to be. That’s what I’m talkin’ about! Finally, some good news! I was all, “when are they going to release a scientific study about something I like?”
