Happy Hump Day my lovelies!!
There is something that has been irking me for a long, long time and dagnabbit it is time for another “Grinds My Gears” segment. I’m sure some people will blast me and voice their ire over me posting this but whatever! LOL
It grinds my gears to see all of these feminine hygiene commercials. Don’t get me wrong, I am a very much a woman and I know and understand that issues are had. I know that there is a market for tampons, pads, odor spray, feminine wash, etc. But damn it enough is enough! Some of these are just too much! Some random confounded actress saying that she didn’t know that sex and soap could throw off her pH balance (why her mother never told her these things is beyond me) and Summer’s Eve© using the slogan “Power to the V” throw me off.
I think it’s sexist at the very least. Why? Because not once in my lifetime have I ever seen a man come onto my TV screen, sitting in his favorite recliner or lounging comfortably on the couch, and begin to whisper to the camera in a hushed 2nd Tenor voice that he is having testicular issues. That he has some itching or odor or chaffing that is noticeable and uncomfortable and that he uses “Chaff-Away” for those “Not-So-Fresh” moments.
Some of these commercials are so absurd that even Saturday Night Live got in on this one, as you can see below for yourself.
And that my lovelies, is what grinds my gears!! LMAO
