This is an unusually non-book-related post, I know, but did anyone else see the appalling ads run during the Super Bowl? I was disgusted by several of them, but Dodge's "Man's Last Stand" ad took the cake in the Outrage Angie department. In case you had the pleasure of not watching it, the ad features a series of haggard men enumerating the numerous things they've done for their women and announcing they deserve a Dodge Charger for all their sacrifices. *gag* I know it's hard for both men and women these days, especially when it comes to roles and expectations in and out of the home, workplace, social environment, etc. But I was very happy to see this completely awesome response/parody to the ad. Thanks to Diana for the heads up! Also, you should go read her post as well as Sarah Rees Brennan's on gender in YA, literature, and film. Because they are made of awesome and make me so energized I want to go climb a mountain.
Warning: there is a bit of language at the very end.
