Must be Tuesday: Feminist claims laundry detergent “normalises the abuse of women”

December 16, 2014

Why people can’t take feminism seriously:

Patriarchy in your washing machine

Dear Unilever,

Please remove your Flirty Shades of Surf from sale immediately. You fail to realise that many people do not see this as fun or amusing. In fact it has upset a lot of victims and survivors of abuse so you need to apologise to them for causing them distress. It amazes me that your company thought this would be a good theme for a laundry liquid.
Abuse is neither funny or flirty. 1 in 4 women will
suffer domestic abuse in their lifetime, they are not laughing.
I would appreciate it if you could address my concerns and the concerns of others.

And 137 people have actually signed this petition.
