    http://summerseve.com/ Really not sure what to think about this.

    I just saw their "Hail to the V" commercial on tv.

    That is very inappropriate ... but, I think it is very funny.

    But, is that a man's hand?

    I haven't seen such a commercial, but that talking hand is just...weird! And the v's owner's manual?

    Okay they totally missed the mark with that commercial. Insulting, not empowering, since they are saying the only reason those men are fighting for the woman is to get in her pants.

    LOL about the man hand. Same thing in the commercial where the Cleopatra looks kind of mannish.

    The most powerful thing in the world? If only. Power greed is probably more powerful since that is one major impetus for rape, slavery, etc.

    Yeah, it is insulting... the only time I've envisioned anyone fighting over my V, it involved imaginary childbirth and breech positions.
