The latest in misogyny from Schick!

Some of us are offended by the commercial for the Schick Quattro shaver/trimmer. Of course, some are not. Do you think it's annoying that female hairy regions are being compared to wild and out of control plants that need trimming and containment?

It is always intriguing to me that so many women chime in with the "I shave/trim/wear heels/wear makeup/get plastic surgery because I like it. I do it for ME" mantra when it comes to body modification. There is an ongoing post over at Bust Magazine's blog about this commercial. Bust is a pretty cool magazine that tends to focus on third wave feminism. Judge for yourself!
