Well, door #2 had it. The account must’ve expired. For those of you who didn’t read the previous post, here it is.
The demeaning, sexist, and misogynistic myspace ads are back – I mean the worst ones from match.com. Maybe I’m getting a little too ticked about this to sustain loyal readers but I’ll risk it. Partially because I had a talk with a friend last night and realize even more how much this stuff really hurts women.
Here’s my second intolerant response:
Apparently your last message about having removed the “It’s not OK to stare” ads was temporary or untrue.
About one in three women are sexually assaulted in this country. When I as a man see ads that feature women as objects, it tempts me to dehumanize them. This ad is very bad for the self-esteem and safety of women. Can your marketing team understand that?
I could apologize for the intolerant tone of this email, but I won’t. I’m not “tolerant” of these demeaning ads. Please forward this email up your chain of command until someone who has loved ones such as a wife, mother, or daughter can stop your site from selling out to match.com.
I am not pleased with your lack of honesty in informing me that this content has been removed when it has not been.
Thank you very much.

If this letter resonates with you, I dare you to copy the other letter in this post and send it from your myspace account. To do this, you need to click the “report inappropriate content” link from the inbox. Or perhaps you are just more tolerant than I am.
