you just have to be scared . . .



Pretty hilarious critique of those osteoporosis drug advertisements. I actually never thought about them as being gendered in a sexist way, but they sure are. Just goes to show what a good parody can do for critical thinking!

p.s. Feministing mentions that Sarah Haskins is no longer doing her lady advertising spoofs--oh no! What will we do without her?

That's really funny. The pharmaceutical companies do such a great job scaring the shit out of everyone. I'm doing my part on sticking it to the man....I live with my high cholesterol and NO MEDICATION. Hope I don't drop dead of a heart attack! See, those ads got to me! Damn the man.

Thanks for this! I don't know what I would do without YOU to keep me in the loop about these genius bits!
