cool... thanks! I work in a pharmacy specializing in dermatology and it's nice to have one concise place to refer to for "safer" alternatives and exactly what the concerns are with the various chemicals. The argument that if you can't pronounce it, it must be bad for you doesn't work for me, because I can pronounce them all. Quite glibly! :LOL
I think that we have to remember that our discomfort with the image described by the OP is not because the ad is telling us that this is what you should do, or that what is happening in the ad reflects any reality, but that the ad represents mainstream thinking that says that you should buy something to make your baby sleep in a crib but it's ok if the dog sleeps in your bed.
While advertising does try to influence society, it also reflects what is considered normal in society.
It's not that the depicted image is bad, but that it represents society saying that it is to be expected. And that parents will bang their heads against walls and buy all kinds of junk and get really frustrated/angry and make their babies CIO to meet this expectation.
And I would totally buy some "shiznitz" that allowed me to have hot monkey sex. but it would be a different kind, to rub on DH, not DS!!!!!
He's just so
But I suppose cool porcupine sex is ok. ("careful, shhhhh")
