Sanitary towel company behaves exactly as it always has

In order to not give the damn thing any more hits I won’t mention the specifics of the latest “sanitary protection” company’s viral advert that has done the rounds on Facebook and I’m also too pissed off to give a full and reasoned argument because I have much better things to do, however suffice it to say:

Making ‘viral’ adverts addressing criticisms of sanitary towel company’s advertising techniques in which one’s only argument is that yes, periods are an unhappy experience COMPLETELY REINFORCES NEGATIVE STEREOTYPES ABOUT PERIODS.

It is not clever, funny, interesting or even slightly different to what they’ve always done. Make you feel terrible about your body = selling more useless shit.

OKAY? OK?

OK.
