Pantene Phillippines #whipit Labels against women

It sickens me to read the comments on this video and see all the people who don’t believe that this is how things are.

Because let me tell you, this is accurate. Powerful men are assumed to be strong, intelligent leaders, while powerful women are seen as bossy and mean.  Furthermore, successful men are assumed to have achieved their success through ability, while successful women are just seen as lucky.

There is such a double standard and I’m so upset about how many people don’t realize that it exists

(props to the company for using this as their ad though, I’m impressed that they did that, and it’s really important to point out)

The really horrible thing is that I still can’t stop seeing this.

so basically we're going to add 15 syllables to every word you know and assign it one of 3 genders at random. Also good luck figuring out where to put the accents you piece of shit

“So I noticed. I used to think they were all sweet and kind.” 
“Why would you think that? Even in your Bible, we’re harbingers of doom, willing and able to destroy entire cities. Just because we sometimes warned one or two of you beforehand doesn’t make us altruistic.” 


Great, GREAT series!
