Do Laundry To Keep From Being Slut-shamed!

 

So I saw this commercial last night while watching Frasier re-runs with my mom. The TV was muted, but it really didn’t hinder any of the commercial’s message.

Let’s see, what’s a good summary:

“A doting father is worried about his darling little girl’s tendency to dress like a big slut, so he decides to ruin an article of her clothing of which he particularly disapproves like the manly hero that he is. However, the daughter schemes with her mother to wash the skirt, and thus continuing the daughter’s slutting around town with those legs of hers.”

So basically, the patriarch of the family’s totally acceptable wishes to control his daughter’s purity were dashed by a woman’s exceptional talent at doing laundry.

Just another day in patriarchy approved detergent commercials, I guess, especially from Tide.
