As much as I utterly despise the tv, other people I live with occasionally have it on, while I was doing some push ups the commercial came on that shows a girl LEADING her guy friend up a rock face, triumphantly standing up at the end, him no where to be found.
Of course, in this femcentric world, a commercial like this is par for the course of the ‘women-are-better-than-men-at-all-things-but-still-couched-in-victimhoom’ meme. Perhaps among the most annoying things in this commercial is the guys face of near incredulity of ‘wow, I cant believe how amazing this women is.’
I rock climb, so I know there are good girls out there, there are girls better than me, this girl is better than me. But an argument feminists like to throw around is because one girl is better than most guys that somehow means all girls are better than most guys. A fallacy of association. You see this a lot when it comes to Olympics, ‘oh the women sprinters run WAY faster than most males’ yes, well not only do those female sprinters look like men, what about the MEN that can run faster then ALL women?
Of course this commercial is kind of like my earlier post about white males being the group easy to pick on. In our brave new world, you can have a commercial lauding a female, and it does not exclude males (most beta/manginas/manboobs/white knights) associate women power with some misplaced need to protect ‘the weak female’. Imagine showing a ripped guy powering up some rock, it would turn the girls off because of its ‘inherent misogyny’ and probably turn a lot of guys off that they arent that badass.
Of course I will state it so feminists understand: when a commercial like this comes on, the average girl thinks ‘wow, she is so amazing, women are so great overcoming this patriarchy!’
The average guy is thinking ‘Id probably do her’
