Yellow Pages' 'Misinterpreted' Interpreted



I absolutely hate gender stereotyping, and this Yellow Pages ad that's all over TV makes me sputter with righteous indignation. It plays for laughs by reinforcing a rigid gender dichotomy, I assume meant to illicit a chuckle and a little nod - silly, but you can kinda relate. John Gray must cream every time he sees it.
