Snip: Pass the sauce, waitasecond….

Happy Labor Day everyone! Did you know that Labor Day celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers? Yeah, neither did I. Thanks Wikipedia!

“This is no time for conversation”
Yeah, it’s that important…. WHAT

In honor of my contributions to the USA, I’ll leave you all with a snippet today. A while ago while eating at our mess hall I came across a bottle of A1 Steak Sauce. Personally I hate steak sauce and never use it, but my eye was drawn to the clip-arty image on the back.

Maybe I’m having a knee-jerk reaction again, but this doesn’t sit well with me. It imagery throws me back to the 1950’s when most women were delegated to being a homemaker. The man shushes his companion to devour his meal, because it’s just that important.

I think it’s disrespectful and I don’t like it.

Well, back to my day off, which will not have any sauce in it.

Lots of shitty sexist things happen to me in the Navy! So I’d like to tell you about it. Also, I curse like a Sailor. Sorry if that offends you.

    Bah. That’s definitely a thing even in movies and TV shows today…it’s the whole ‘Oh women talk so much, they’re so annoying” stereotype, and when a man ignores them or hushes them it’s supposed to be hilarious. Ironic really, when it’s actually men who constantly dominate conversations – in the media, in politics, in the military, in business, and in social situations.

  2. I used to work in a steakhouse when I first saw this image. I thought it was hilarious myself. Not because of the art but because I would never expect to see something so blatantly sexist actually make it onto the market in this day and age. I couldn’t help but feel as if someone had dropped the ball somewhere lol.

    This was by far the most sexist ad that I can recall seeing in this era. I’m not complaining though. I can find humor in anything.
