More Target Women fun, and this time Sarah Haskins is making fun of adverts that assume all women want fairytale lives with happy endings. She features (amongst others) two adverts from the California Milk Processor Board that, while they may not be the worst ever made, are certainly the most sexist ads I’ve seen in a while.

I haven’t posted yet about Proposition 8 being upheld. It took me some time to get my head around my reaction to it. I’m not a US citizen nor an expert on constitutional law. So when smarter people than I tell me that there were some good reasons behind the proposition being upheld, I know that they might be right.
But my gut feeling is still this. Laws should protect people. There should be laws to protect a small group of people (who aren’t hurting anyone) from a larger group of people who dislike them on spec. And upholding a proposition in which a majority voted specifically to remove rights from a minority is just wrong.

And have accumulated a really quite large collection of underwear and socks to help me put it off as long as possible.
Luckily I have Sarah Haskins to remind me that I’m abnormal and that all women love laundry. At least that’s what the TV would have me believe.
It also reminds me that I really need clean sheets this weekend, sigh.
I don’t hate laundry as much as I hate ironing, though. I don’t think I even own an iron.

I went away for a few days right after posting my entry for Blogging Against Disablism Day, but I’m back now. My thanks to everyone who commented on, linked to, or just read my post.
I’m finally getting round to reading everyone else’s posts. Here are some of the entries that I liked, that made me laugh, or that made me think.
