This ad from Burger King has been getting a lot of criticism for offering a sexist and degrading image of women. People who have been following this blog for a while know how much I dislike sexist advertisement. For some reason, however, I haven't caught on to the supposed offensive nature of this ad.
First of all, I can hardly see any sexualized overtones here. Second, even if there are some very well-hidden ones, I'm not sure how they are offensive. maybe there is an implid reference to oral sex. So what? Is any image hinting at oral sex necessarily offensive?
Can anybody explain? I'm genuinely puzzled here.
