The most ridiculous thing to hit the advertising arena since…well, ever, is this bit of idiocy from Summer’s Eve. I won’t go on too much of a tirade because others have said it much better than I could (just check out the comments in link above). But seriously, when Jenn sent this to me the other day, I cringed. Over and over and over.
According to this article, the company’s intention is empowering women and removing stigmas. But really, they’re out to sell products. And worse than the racial stereotyping and the talking hand-vaginas is the fact that these products to cure feminine odors are in no way necessary. And it bugs me that teen girls may see these types of ads and think that they’re unclean when they’re not. Do you bathe regularly? Then you probably don’t need special cleansing cloths or deodorant sprays for your vagina. Need more convincing? Just check out all of these reasons not to mess with your nether regions.
Am I just supremely confident in my vagina? Or do you think these products are ridiculous, too?
