It's the underlying message -- that whole "a REAL man indiscriminately knocks up anything with a uterus."

Not to mention the trivialization of women and that it seems to be okay again, when not too long ago an ad like that would have been marketing death for a product, but maybe that's more in my consciousness with the current political climate.

I see this as funny, but also sexist towards both parties.

You're right, Cthulu, it does trivialize both.

I don't find that ad directly offensive, but it is a bit off putting (and creepy as stated) and it definitely wouldn't make me want to purchase what they are selling.

That's it, Coop . . . the "off-puttingness" of it, flirting with offensive, is what makes my skin crawl.

Like it's akin to desensitization.

No sex at all -- just "seeding."

I found it funny I didn't really think it was offensive, but maybe I'm just kinda warped.
