  •  They are also running bizarre Valentines TV spots (2+ / 0-)

    I always thought Vermont Teddy Bear made stuffed toys for children?

    Now they are running bizarre ads where a man rejects candy as a valentine gift for a woman because "It will make her look fat."

    So the man buys an enormous stuffed teddy bear for the woman instead. I agree it infantilizes women, while sexualizing children's toys.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Michael.

      You made an excellent point about their ad dissing chocolates on the assumption it will make a woman fat. More misogyny.  The fact that they choose to air their ads on Rush Limbaugh's show makes me question who their target customer is. Limbaugh continually takes swipes at strong independent women who are educated and accomplished.  His audience must be members of his "He-Man Women Haters Club."

      IMHO the most romantic thing a man can do do is spend time with his loved one. Instead of buying a surrogate "companion" he should simply show interest in his love's day.
