Manatee Me

Sunday, April 07, 2013

Haven't blogged in a while, but have to vent my frustration over the Target dress ad flap. The store insists it was an innocent thing, but in my opinion it only shows how insensitive people are to the plight of people struggling with being overweight. A lot of people probably guffawed over the regular size dresses being heather gray and the plus size of the same dress being manatee gray. That is not what we need. If Target was on its game it would not permit ladies anything to be called "manatee". I mean, I love those creatures but do not want my shape to be referenced to one. I have been put in a rather foul mood today.

    I find myself irritated by most commercials in fact it annoys me that people or companies who air them have such a low opinion of the intelligence of the general
    public thank goodness for the remote control and even better the public TV network.
    As far as store ads go I suppose we have to make our displeasure known in person or in writing after all there are other stores we can shop.
