Thomasville Compares Women's Bodies to Furniture


In a new campaign called "So You," Thomasville juxtaposes furniture with women's bodies. This is kind of neat if you ignore the fact the whole push for women's individuality, rights, etc, etc, has been about avoiding that whole uncomfortable tendency to compare women to objects. Then again, being paired up with a nice curvy vase is a little flattering. But a fucking stuffed couch? Come on! - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Edit - Oops, the vase is a couch too. Even better.

STUFFED CHAIR! Haha, I used this post as a resource on my web site today. Thanks adrants!

Btw, sex always sells. no one can argue that. even if the underlying tone is "women's bodies are objects" the ad will catch your attention everytime. it would be better if they had a dress that better resembled the chair's look.

So Target. So Nestlé.

Can we 86 the split-screen AD technique now please?

Well, men get compared to beasts all the time by the feminist-infested media.

And nobody stands up for the rights of these men.

So what's good for the gander should also be good for the goose.
