(click ad) Huh. I always thought of Mr. Clean as a cheerful, fastidious gay man, not a chauvinistic asshole. Now, I think the thought with this coupon ad for Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser is: "for one day at least, Mom: don't clean." And yet: Mom's cleaning on Mother's Day. Even better, she's tutoring her future Mom on how best to handle all the shittiest housework, which is of course women's work. The ad reeks of disinfected sexism. Via Loving Katie. Previously in: sexist Mom ads.
