Bud Light Runs Shameless ‘Equal Pay’ Commercial. And it's Cringeworthy...
Bud Light recently released a cringe-worthy commercial regarding the wage gap. You know, the thing that doesn't exist. Like Seth Rogen's neck. It's a pretty short clip, but it manages to pack in plenty of garbage.
SR: Women don't get paid as much as men and that is wrong.
AS: And we have to pay more for the same stuff. Cars, dry cleaning, shampoo...
SR: You pay more but get paid less, that is double wrong.
Well Seth Rogen does have a point. It is wrong. The entire premise for this video is wrong. Not wrong as in sick - like Amy Schumer squeezing her heft into that blue dress (trigger-warning: fat shaming). But wrong as in incorrect or false... Like the phrase "Amy Schumer, you totally don't look like a baby beluga whale in that Bud Light commercial."
Firstly, the wage gap doesn't exist (see Feminist 'Equal Pay' Arguments Debunked. THOROUGHLY!). So that goes out the window. Secondly, no, women don't have to pay more for the same stuff. Nobody is forcing you to buy the "pink razor," so to speak. Want to pay the same price as men do for shampoo? Buy men's shampoo. It's that easy. Also, where did they get the idea that women pay more for cars? But while we're on the subject: men pay higher car insurance rates. Forcing one gender to pay more than the other? Say, that sounds a lot like... sexism!
The truth is, men get the fuzzy end of the lollipop too. It works both ways. They just don't complain about it in droves like feminists do (Dear Weak, Pathetic Women: Modern Feminism Is For YOU!). And when they do, we laugh at them. Because grown adults who whine deserve to be laughed at. So you're angry that you have to shave your pits lest society views you as a swamp beast? Nobody cares. See where this is going? Bud Light and its dancing monkeys (Schumer and Rogen) are making a big stink out of non-issues. Because it sells. Thanks to leftists, victimization is a pretty solid marketing strategy. #Progress
