Fuck that Man's Last Stand bullshit

That Dodge Charger spot in the superbowl about how hard it to be a man so you deserve a fucking sports car made me soooooooo angry! Seriously? It's soooooo difficult to be a man and to get along with your partner and share responsibilities? And I am just in an angry place. Call me kneejerk, but I made an instant slapdash dirty response.

YES!! Thank you for saying what we all were mumbling when we threw objects at or near our televisions.
Sexism is alive.

Agreed. But does it make it any better (or worse) that Dexter is doing the voiceover...?

I'm a male who fully understands why you were angry at this ad, but seriously. Come the FUCK on. The fact that this affects you in such a way that you have to reply to it in such a bitter manner only fuels the fire behind this commercial.

Furthermore, do you honestly think that every man thinks the way this commercial makes it seem? Tell you what. Dump your boyfriend, divorce your husband, because apparently you believe all men think like this.

Fucking gullible woman you are.

So chill the fuck down and realize that IT'S A COMMERCIAL.

Fuck sakes.

I'm glad my girlfriend actually has enough of a sense of humour to laugh at this commercial, because she trusts me enough to know that I'm not like this.

Fuck your bitchy bullshit. If you think your man has this mentality then you clearly have the wrong guy. Get the fuck out.

Bloody North American women and their bloody whining.

Fuck.

So what do you think about the female comics who joke about the tough time they have living with their men?

Do they bother you too? I'm a man and I think those women are funny. Men ARE tough to live with. The jokes those women tell are funny. It doesn't bother me. It's not an attack on me.

So why such hatred for the reverse situation? I see no problem with any of this, no matter which way it's aimed.

Hey, third "anonymous", be quiet. The reason that ad sucks is that this trend of obnoxious yuppies who make life choices and then complain about it is getting really annoying. The fact is, if you decide to have a family and get an office job, you learn to live with it. Life is about compromises, but apparently every loser guy whose life doesn't involve sports cars is allowed to have a hissy fit because "he's a man".

Furthermore, it's annoying because we're sick of seeing guys portrayed like whiny little babies. "We" meaning both men and women. We are allowed to get angry over this ad because it represents a trend in advertising and the media that really sucks.

And seriously? You're having a panic attack because someone you don't know doesn't like something you like and you're telling HER to calm down?

Jeff, I like how you made up a situation and then judged Bex according to the fantasy you just concocted. Did she say she likes those comedians? No...no, I don't think so. It's pretty weird to assume something about someone and then judge them according to that.

And I hate to break it to you, but those comedians suck.
