I saw that commercial on TV and actually blocked it out. Now I remember being completely take aback and not knowing what to say.

Now I say this: Crap on Burger King. They just want to perpetuate the myth that people need meat, men need meat, there is a proper way to be a man, "chick food," whatever that is, presumably what women eat, is bad for men and thus wrong... Where do you start? Even better, where does it end?

This has to be one of the worst commercial mesages in a very long time.

I like a good buger, but this commercial is ridiculus. The "be a man, man" line is down right ludicrous.

It doesn't, as far as I can tell. The BK analysis is one of my longer posts, and I left out important subjects like heterosexism and an in-depth discussion of racism.

Oh, and my commenters are still pointing out new angles that I didn't think to explore.

This commercial disgusts me, but once again society reinforces this belief.
"women ≠ salad"
"men ≠ meat & potatoes"

I'm a real vegetarian, and I always get ignorant folk coming up to me saying, "You need meat to live; your gonna be sick soon" and "If you don't eat meat, how do you get any protein."
It's truly disheartening.
