It’s insulting. It’s misandrous. It’s #everydaysexism on a massive, socially-acceptable scale, beamed right into our living rooms. And – to be frank – it pisses me right off.

Now imagine these adverts with roles reversed – where a mother is being ridiculed by her husband and ignored by her children. Where a nation is being encouraged to laugh at the ridiculous, pathetic woman. You can’t, can you? Of course not – because such an ad would never be made. It would be outrageously sexist.
