    Tis true. I'm a bitter, dried up prune prude. No man will look at me and my pruney, humourless vajayjay.

    I am now in fits of giggles imagining a voluptuous, wisecracking vajayjay. (ie the opposite of yours) I can see why the men are attracted to them.

    Is anyone else put off by the ads for the next season of Masterchef being advertised?
    Not at all.

    It seems like they are trying to jam as many gender stereotypes as they can into the ads so far- pink vs blue, men belong in sheds, women can't cook with beer etc
    That's the point of the promo.

    Thoughts?
    My thoughts are is that it's a well orchestrated promo that has achieved what it set out to do: get people talking. Personally, I can appreciate that it's tongue-in-cheek and I find it humorous.

    I realise that was the point- but surely a better aim would be to get people to want to watch it as opposed to alienating people who see this kind of stereotyping as harmful and not humorous?

    Not sure what your point is.
    I don't find it alienating and I don't find it harmful.
    Perhaps it's because I have a sense of humour

    I honestly don't feel that the ad is going to mean it gets less viewers. Not enough to make a difference anyway.

    Just as crap reporting on nonsense stories doesn't mean less viewers for Today Tonight. I suspect a show like Masterchef knows its audience, and I actually kind of like the kitschy vibe the ad has. It's all old fashioned... Men VS women is not a new concept, and I think they ran with that. It's old fashioned... So they played that up. Old fashioned music, choreographed movements much like an old fashioned chorus line, the old fashioned stereotypes.

    It wasnt anti woman IMO... It was delivering cheesy stereotypes about BOTH sexes.

    I don't tend to think every single thing in life requires in depth analysis on how it's oppressing, harming, degrading, traumatising etc. A cheesy kitschy TV commercial delivering the most inoffensive sexism there is... Well, it doesn't even register as a blip on my feminist radar.

    I don't find it funny and it doesn't make me want to watch the show. It did make me YouTube the song though... Lol
