I cannot believe this hasn't been posted about yet. Not only misogynistic, but plain WRONG, milk won't help your PMS.<br><br>
Thoughts?

It took too long to load, so I got bored and didn't care anymore.

That's alright, we can just sit back and let gender roles and offensive material be pressed upon is as usual.

I was just going to make a post about this.<br><br>
Here's an article about the ad campaign: <a href="http://www.salon.com/entertainment/tv/feature/2011/07/12/milk_sexist_pms_campaign/" target="_blank">http://www.salon.com/entertainment/t..._pms_campaign/</a><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Advertising without sexist stereotypes would be like "The Jersey Shore" without bronzer, like Katy Perry without cleavage. But even in a field dominated by <a href="http://www.salon.com/life/broadsheet/feature/2009/11/13/reebok_ads" target="_blank">talking boobs,</a> <a href="http://www.salon.com/entertainment/tv/feature/2011/06/16/yoplait_light_pulls_eating_disorder_ad" target="_blank">obsessive yogurt eating</a> and <a href="http://www.salon.com/life/feature/2011/02/03/peta_vegetable_sex_ad/index.html" target="_blank">vegetable licking</a>, the new California Milk Processor Board goes that extra offensive mile.<br>
In a new twist on the classic "Got Milk?" campaign, the dairy world is reaching out to a struggling class of individuals – men suffering from PMS. Not their own, of course. The <a href="http://everythingidoiswrong.org/#/" target="_blank">"Everything I do is wrong"</a> campaign goes out to all you, fellas, the poor, beleaguered gents who have to deal with your lady's monthly case of the crazies. Solidarity!<br>
A new series of ads features cowering come-ons from men defensively brandishing half-gallons and sniveling mea culpas like "I'm sorry you listened to what I said and not what you meant" and the grammatically noxious "We can both blame myself." At the Web "home for your PMS management," there's a warning to be alert to "verbal traps and questions about her weight," and a "sensitivity vocabulator" that suggests menfolk call her "passionate" instead of "irrational."</div>

Its a silly website and its not even funny. It's not as offensive as some I've seen though :/

We do have a thread about this, actually. It's in the Heap.
