Dear Twix

Dear Twix,

Despite your delicious crunchy cookie, smooth caramel and creamy chocolaty goodness, I hate you. Well, more accurately, I hate your commercials. Therefore, I am going to stop eating your product. Or maybe just eat less.

Why you may ask? Well, let me tell you. It's because you  hate women. Yep. You can't even argue with it. Allow me to present Exhibit A.



You believe that it is okay to help men lure women into their apartments with the excuse of blogging. While blogging is fucking awesome, it's not cool enough to get date raped.

Still not convinced? Exhibit B.



Now you are helping men lie to their wives about being cheating assholes? Nice Twix. Real Nice.

Observe, Exhibit C.



Do you think we are that stupid?!? Come on.

I may be just angry and bitter. Either way...I'm done with you Twix! Done with you!

I never thought about it that way before but you are right! I've never seen a twix ad work the other way around where a woman "needs a moment" if you decide to leave twix forever and you feel like whipping up something similar check this out http://blog.kingarthurflour.com/2010/09/27/im-rich-im-rich-thousand-dollar-bars/

Sexism in commercials is appallingly common. Offensiveness, in general, abounds. I have had to stop buying a lot of products. I'm also avoiding certain fast food chains because of politics. Maybe my $5 doesn't matter to them, but it matters to me that they don't get it.

*girl snaps* Amen.

@IY- Thanks for the tip! I may have to try that! And you are very right...there are no women "needing a moment" in those commercials.

@Calandreya- I totally agree. What I refuse to spend on a product probably goes unnoticed, but I know...and that's good enough for me.

@Meg O.- You crack me up! I totally just imagined you doing the z-snap with the whole head motion and everything. LOL

THANK YOU! Hello?!? I cannot believe more people are not seeing this! Sure the commercials are kinda funny, but also fairly insulting.

Okay, on that last one, I wouldn't have even asked what he was looking at. I would have just slapped him in the back of the head.
