Getting angry at sexism in advertising is like [insert simile here]
I know it's fruitless to get angry at this, but god help me, I do love a losing battle. I can't be the only person who's sick of this. Not only am I supposed to buy my identity, but if Old Navy had its way, I'd only have three choices to pick from. Unfortunately for me, I'm not a "Diva", nor a "Flirt", nor a "Sweetheart".
So where are my "Dragonlady" jeans? My "Ballbuster"s? "Riveter"s? I'd settle for some god damn "Not-trying-to-impress-anyone"s, you know?
Seriously. Next you'll be telling me companies are selling their product with blonde/brunette jokes, talking about battle between the hair-colors.
