Milk: It Does The Patriarchy Good?

A new ad campaign that suggests milk may help alleviate the symptoms of PMS has some feminists acting like it’s that time of the month. My first post for Pajamas Media covers their hysterical accusations of sexism and “sexploitation.” I can only excerpt 100 words, so here’s a quick taste of how one feminist reacted to the ads.

The feminist reaction devolved into true absurdity with the milk boycott proposed by a Feministing blogger. She suggests five PMS-soothing calcium sources “that don’t involve milk.” Topping her list of ideas: “Eat other kinds of dairy products, like yogurt and cheese (mozzarella is particularly high in calcium).” Way to strike a blow against Big Milk by consuming products made from … milk.

    ROFLMFAO! This is absolutely hilarious. And I’ll have to remember that about milk. I’ll bet that chocolate milk works even better!

    Feminists need no help from milk to acquire a moustache.

    Um… THEY are insulted? My first response was to say, “These beta punks don’t speak for me. Man up, boys.”

    It demeans men to continue to portray them as beta, kowtowing pansies subject to womens’ whims, just as it insults women to suggest that they are irrational cyclones needing hormonal adjustment.

    Anyone who ISN’T insulted by these isn’t paying attention.
