    Is any idea more creatively bankrupt than the "dumb dad" character who can't manage his house and doesn't know how to take care of his kids?

    The super hero wife has to ask him if he's fed the kids?

    FUCK YOU.

    The kid's roll their eyes too.

    Dad (white Dad) is always (100% of the time) the dumbest guy in the room.

    nah. i just don't agree with boycotts. i believe that as in advertising, all publicity is good publicity. it's extremely naive, arrogant, and just plain stupid to believe that giving free, and undue attention to a commercial entity will get them to rethink their business practices (unless you happen to be Rev Al). if you give a business any special treatment, they will interpret it as a sign that their advertising is working and increase whatever it is that they are currently doing. therefore boycotts are a creation of a very narrow and limited mind with the intelligence of a piece of wood.

    The "all press is good press" mentality came out of the 1950's, when there were limited outlets for any publicity so if you could figure out a way to get your name/likeness in the public eye it was a success but there was usually an endgame of offering goods/services. We're now living with results of that mindset, the people with the least to offer now garner the most attention through empty sensationalism. If you disagree with a product or policy, the only recourse available to an individual is boycott so wtf

    except no boycott has worked in more than 30 years because no organized effort has ever succeeded in getting mass observance, and the press then covers the failed attempts which act as free publicity for the vendor. its why sales improved dramatically when Chik-Fil-A's anti-gay political contributions were made public: people who never thought about the chain before suddenly wanted to see what all the noise was about. the press boycott backfired, as have all boycotts. Occupy Wall St also was just so successful, right? that's why nobody on Wall St was charged, or suffered any losses...

    continuing to try a strategy that has never worked before, and expecting a different outcome this time, is the definition of psychotic.
