Loved This!

Wow. I was so surprised when I saw this Docker's ad. Thanks, Lanita, for pointing it out.

***As an addendum to this post, I want to include an excerpt from an article by Elaine Wong, December 1, 2009. She is interviewing a representative of Levi Strauss, the maker of Dockers, on why they've put out this new, "Wear the pants" campaign. There's a lot here:

"We started to do some research. In today's world, men have lost a bit of footing, in part because women have come so far, but we also found a few surprising facts: Eighty-percent of those who suffered unemployment in the last year were men. Women outnumber men in the workforce now. But the most surprising fact of all was that men's testosterone levels have been dropping by a percentage point a year for 20 years."

Whoa.

Not only is society trying to turn men into women, but the plastics we use every day leak chemicals into our foods/drink and actually block the action of Testosterone in men!

Melissa, I really need to get serious about getting the plastic out of our house. I am a plastic wrap-a-holic, especially for my husband's snacks that I put in the freezer. I wonder about the serious increase of soy in our food supply too.
