Everyday sexism: Christmas special

A Sainsbury’s advert for Christmas Pud reads thus:

“WE HAVE TO BE REALLY QUIET AND TURN THE LIGHTS OFF.

AND THEN DADDY COMES IN WITH THE PUDDING ON FIRE!”

No doubt Daddy got to do the fun fire-and-alcohol bit as a reward for cooking the bird, peeling and roasting the spuds, making brussels sprouts that the children actually ate, and doing the washing up afterwards.

(Thanks to Naomi for pointing this one out.)
