SHAVE YOUR PUBIC AREA.

Posted: 17 April 2009 in feminism, media

This is one of those beauty standards/sex marketing things about advertising that I find to be as pleasant as nails on a chalkboard. However, hidden in there, at the 0:17-0:21 mark, is some ridiculously blatant racism.

“Some bushes are really big” – Black woman with hedge clippers winks knowingly,
“Some gardens are mighty small” – Asian woman with pruning shears giggles girlishly.

Yes, because we all know that Black women are virtual forests, whereas Asian women appear to be in perpetual pre-pubescence.

MANGA IS NOT A GOOD REPRESENTATION OF THE FEMALE ANATOMY. First off, TENTACLES DO NOT BELONG THERE and second, IT’S NOT ACTUALLY GREEN.
