Say, what?


Tuesday, July 24, 2007

Geez, Louise

A Malaysian teacher and boarding school warden punished 170 teenage girls by making them squat neck-deep in a fish pond for flushing their sanitary pads down the toilet.

English teacher Wee Yim Pien, 27, sent the girls into the pond to squat for 30 minutes after they repeatedly ignored her warnings to stop.

Teachers unions have protested Wee's action, saying it was unwarranted and amounted to abuse.

Seems to me, degrading women, especially in the feminine hygiene area, is nothing new. Just take a gander at this old Lysol (Yikes!) douche advertisement. And recently, the top (very suggestive, subliminal) photo was used in a K-Y Jelly ad.

Men surely contrived that one.

So women, be safe and stay fresh out there.

It's obviously a backward,primitive society in Malaysia.
Are they still stoning women for infidelity?
The teacher and headmaster should be made to endure the same punishment followed by a good public caning.

The woman in the top picture needs a cartoon bubble that says "D'oh!"

And, I don't feel like editing, so ... it wasn't a K-Y ad, some other personal lubricant of which I can't remember the name.

I do not like that advertisement for lubricants either. There should be a disclaimer especially what was family hour on TV. HA!!!!!

I'd like to see sanitary napkin/tampon ads where the girl in the pristine white outfit gets up , walks away- with a big red stain on her derriere - like real life! Most women I know do not wear white pants , unless it is part of a required uniform, that first day of "cycle"...
