_So if 2 females don't agree with the rest of you...than they have to be the same person? That makes a lot of sense. So every guy on here who don't agree with the rest of the forums are also the same person right? Wow so some guy on here has multiple accounts right? And to think I said you didn't have a brain. Silly me.
Well... that's not a "no".
_Oh sorry.... no I'm not AbysmalDawna. But I don't really care if you think I'm her or not. So what your all saying is it's impossible for 2 females to have an opinion on something? And do you think if I really was her I was trying to fool people into thinking I'm not, that I would use the same avatar? When I first chose this avatar I thought I was the only one using it. Then I saw her use it too, but I was like oh well. So we use the same picture.
Jeez...a simple no would have been cool...i just thought that yall have a simialar style about you...so i asked..i didnt know it wasnt kosher to be a Dawna...anyways take it as a compliment, as she writes in a thoughtful way, and just in case you didnt know, most of the people here have at least one sub-account...so again..i was just asking. Anyways..youve clearly shown your intellectual prowess to me...so i concede to you Icinq. you smart i dumm. me had fum tho

I think a sexist ad campaign fits right into sexist Home (Didn't the guys all love the Axe campaign?) because Sony, itself, seems to be a sexist company.
This ad campaign aired on network tv several months ago. In this country it received a considerable internet backlash at the time. Personally I think people have become way to sensitive and easily offended. We have lost all sense of humor in this country. As a male, I found the campaign quite funny. This country is divided 50/50 on many issues. With our diversity someone will always be offended.
Come on people lighten up. It is a Great Reward and I am happy to see corporate interest in Home.

Dr Pepper 10 was released in 2011, And the marketing promotion set for it was to entice men to drink the lower calorie version.
Now with that being said yes it agitated some women.
What makes this funny is that there's been complaints on this forum of us not getting events like we used to, Or not getting events from outside brands (Ex. Axe Brisk Victoria secret). With those all being past event sponsors.
We finally get a new minigame from an outside brand and it gets hit in the forums negatively.
Now does negativity entice anyone to further promote or sponsor in that event/service? Nope.
Hmm could this be why we don't get a lot of sponsored events, Cause they get ripped apart with criticism on here.

@ ITCOB1 and TheLunatic Parade: I'm trying to think how to respond without saying you're both stupid.
ITCOB: " As a male, I found the campaign quite funny. Come on people lighten up. It is a Great Reward and I am happy to see corporate interest in Home."
As a male, you find sexist campaigns funny? Wow, there's a surprise.
TheLunatic Parade: "Now does negativity entice anyone to further promote or sponsor in that event/service? Nope. Hmm could this be why we don't get a lot of sponsored events, Cause they get ripped apart with criticism on here."
Any company would expect some negative responses to any campaign. With campaigns like these, they should expect a lot. Do they care? No. Why? Any publicity is GOOD publicity.

You hand picked a couple of sentences out of the context of my post and clearly missed the point of my post.
As a side note, that ad campaign was directly only targeted for men. Obviously, their market research must have shown adequate product saturation with already diet conscious women.
