  1. @ Alazyguy: I don’t recollect any ad that made a man look bad and was perceived as good. And no, my post is about the Cad Fad. Some men are cads and if the media is a reflection of society’s thinking, then it makes it perfectly permissible for them to be so. Not, in my opinion. And by the way, I never claimed to be a feminist.

    @ FullMoonOnEarth: Sab bakwaas I agree.

  2. Oh common, what sells is a man made to look bad – but when a woman does so, it is dealt by moral police.

    So you agree that the heading was more on a popular note – since you agree it should have been more like “Poor ad”, or “Sprite Vs Gone with the wind” or something like that!!??

    So, this proves again beyond doubt that this blog is more “anti-male” than actually trying to be a “feminist”.

  3. @ meetu: To be honest, I’m not sure. Hypocrisy is human. 😛

    @ S: Gawdawful, isn’t it?

    @ Alazyguy, VoiceofProcess: Point taken. See my reply to meetu above. However don’t you think there are more men who behave like cads than women (I don’t know the female form for the word, either). Also, society seems to be far more forgiving of a man than a woman for the same crime and popular culture like media content and advertisements just reflect that.

    @ Amodini: It puts me off it as well. And I’m probably going to re-think any guy who wants to drink Sprite as well.

  4. Oh, goody – I’m not the only one then. The Sprite people must be majorly running out of ideas to stoop so low. If that doesn’t put me off Sprite I don’t know what will. And then I have to hear all these silly people asking me to “cool it” . . .

  5. By the way, is there a feminine form of cad? If not, perhaps girls should invent one.

    Women should also “parallel-process” men although you should see how the men’s faces drop when they find out they are not the “only” ones 😉

    How do I know it works? That is exactly what I did in college and I was in college in the late 1980s!

    PS: I read your blog often but am going to use a false handle for this one.

  6. Scarlett O Hara. Supposed to be the life of a great novel. But never high on the morals list (in fact, never ever was on the list).

    But are we guys cribbing? Or are we saying all women are the same.

    Quite a few men would dislike the ad, but I have not found a single woman who has ever disliked the novel. It is more of an inspiration for them.

    So, who needs to be less rotten????

  7. Though it made me giggle, I was offended by the ad too! I was wondering whether it would offend me if the genders were exchanged? Hmmmm…i think so…
