Hm. Ebay has managed to offend me.


I need to opt out of these damn promotional emails.. Anyhow, they sent me this spammish thing titled "Your favorite brands - buy them now for less"

Three headings: "Top 10 Deals", "Deals for Her" (shoes, beauty, jeans) and "Deals for Him" (star wars merchandise, electronics, digital cameras)

What the fuck?

I am a woman. That I've had breast reduction surgery doesn't diminish this. That I desire to have my tubes tied so I'll be safe from at least one kind of parasitic lifeform does not diminish this. That I like to wear clothes traditionally worn mainly by men does not make me less of a woman. I am not a gay man in a woman's body. I am a woman.

eBay is sending the message that women should look good and men should have fun.  Gender roles have reached a new low.
