Cow blowing was the reason why Gandhi abjured cow milk, saying that “since I had come to know that the cow  and the buffalo were subjected to the process of phooka ( Cow Blowing), I had conceived  a strong disgust for milk.”

That might be the most awkward pickup line I’ve ever read.

Oh God.

Err…that is awkward. Just no, please. Also what is the line above this? “see is a teasing glimpse of your girls”….

Hello anti-trans bigotry.*  I know what movie I’ll gladly avoid feeding with my dollars.
*Get it? “It ain’t pretty” because she has an adams apple!  And a penis!  And that means she’s really a he!  And hes can’t be pretty!  Hahahaha… ha… FAIL.

Comedy, at the expense of people. 

I think ‘Jill’ is probably supposed to be a cis woman in the context of the movie. But ‘HURR DURR, ADAM SANDLER IN DRAG’ is the main joke here, so it could still be considered transphobic. I don’t see how anyone over the age of seven would be interested in this, anyway.

why is adam sandler

I saw like five of these posters at every subway stop in Manhattan, and I had the same thoughts with their use of the word “it.” Highly offensive.

Yes. I’ve been trying to figure out exactly what it was that was really bugging me about this movie (aside from the fact that it looks REALLY bad). You’ve all said what I was thinking but couldn’t quite put into words.
ETA: For some reason when I save this afunnyfeminist’s comment doesn’t show up. That comment is that their use of “it” is also offensive.

Words Used in Advertising for Toys

My first job when I was 16 was at Toys ‘R Us. The gender segregation was so SO PRONOUNCED. Some of the parents that I saw with their children validated this by telling them “No sweetie, that’s a boy’s toy”, or “No. The boy’s section is over here”. Those moments made me rage the hardest.
