They Can Take a Taxi!

Posted by Hallee on Jun 20, 2013 in Life

While waiting for Man of Steel to start in the theater this weekend, this commercial played:

This commercial is agonizing on so many levels:

Coke Zero is chemically laden crap. I don’t think anyone who reads my blog on any regular basis would be surprised that I feel that way. It really isn’t the point of this post.
Here is yet another “useless, irresponsible” adult male promoted in advertising. The destruction of the American male by media has been a constant onslaught for a few decades now. The less I am exposed to media, the more obvious and infuriating the pattern is.
Video games are proving to actually be damaging to the brain and addictive. Here is a commercial not only NOT denying it, but proving it.

I don’t ever see commercials. Honestly, this one makes me glad that I don’t. I’m absolutely flabbergasted how anyone could think this commercial is promoting something good.

Responsibility & Other ‘R’ Words

Posted by Hallee on Mar 25, 2013 in Life, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising teens

This guy didn’t fit in there. His hair was too long, his clothes were too wrong, and his attitude didn’t fit. I blew him off, and I guess he didn’t like it. At some point, somehow, he cornered me and dragged me into an empty room.

And he raped me.

I’ll spare you the horrific details. At some point, he choked me. Years later I realized that I passed out for a space of time. When I could breathe again, I thought he’d kill me, but something stopped him. I had bruises on my neck for days and wore every turtle necked sweater I owned in an attempt to hide them.

Seeds of Faith: The Media

Posted by Hallee on Sep 19, 2010 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, converstations

This chapter thoroughly touches on all areas of media, from magazine articles to lyrics in music, to television shows and commercials, and how these areas in our lives continually and constantly sexually objectify women. You can’t watch a college football game without a scantily clad model touting a beer brand. You can’t watch a crime show on television without a scene in a bar with naked pole dancers kissing each other.
