    This is regarding a new Samsung Commercial . . . Yahoo! Shine - Women's Lifestyle | Healthy Living and Fashion Blogs

    Gail Dines, an expert on sexist images in the media and a professor of sociology and women’s studies at Wheelock College in Boston.

    Men, who are in power in our society, cannot legitimately cry sexism. “You can say [this ad is] prejudiced, in bad taste, insulting, not funny,” she said. “But it can’t be sexist. Just like a black person can’t be racist.




    I cant believe this person "educates" others for a living. At least the comments seem to reflect that intelligent people do still live in America.

    I'm sorry, but I was so pissed off by the commercial that I wrote to Samsung and essentially told them to go have sex with themselves, and that I was never buying Samsung again.

    "an expert on sexist images in the media"

    Amazing the areas of useless endeavor that emerge when the worries of hunting and gathering to survive are eliminated from daily life.

    "and a professor of sociology and women’s studies at Wheelock College in Boston."

    Curriculum of this nature is why we wind up with experts in sexist imagery in media.

    There's another connection on most of them that you've missed.. tribal affiliation, the creators of political correctness
