The CEO Of Legal Sea Foods Made A Joke At The Expense Of Hillary Clinton So Naturally People Think He's Sexist
DailyMail- A chain of seafood restaurants has drawn outrage by comparing Hillary Clinton to 'cold fish' - a term used in reference to someone who shows no emotion.
Legal Sea Foods, based in Boston, Massachusetts, ran the full-page ad in newspapers of the area on Monday.
The ad comes as part of a larger advertising campaign that began in March and chronicles Legal Sea Foods CEO Roger Berkowitz's fictional run for president.
Ahhh, I see the confusion here. 'Cold fish' and 'dead fish' sound like fairly similar insults, and calling the first ever female Presidential candidate a lazy lover isn't exactly the most politically correct way to run your fake campaign. That said, the only thing that is truly sexist about this comedic ad is the reaction to it. You'll never confuse me with the biggest feminist on the block, but its seems to me that assuming every slight made towards a woman is in reference to her abilities in the bedroom is more sexist than a harmless figure of speech. Hey lunatics, put down your burning torches because not every joke made at the expense of someone with a vagina has to include sexual innuendo. Men and women were created equal, but disparaging idioms that feature deceased marine life undoubtedly were not.
The fact of the matter is that Hillary Clinton does sound like a distant, emotionless person when she speaks and that's coming from someone that hopes - due to lack of better options - that she becomes President. By definition, that makes her a 'cold fish', and someone can't take even one second to understand that maybe there are reasons to dislike Hillary Clinton that have absolutely nothing to do with her gender are the ones that are really promoting a culture of inequality. I suppose Roger Berkowitz could have taken a safer road that led to less miscommunication, but it's not his fault that society would rather look for a reason to bitch and moan than for a reason to laugh. Plus, this road led to far more publicity which was the entire point of his faux campaign trail in the first place.
The CEO of a successful high end seafood chain may not be at liberty to say it, but I will. If Hillary Clinton wasn't ALSO a dead fish would Slick Willy have been out there pussy poppin' every semi-passable intern with exorbitantly priced stogies? Maybe yes, maybe no, but the only reason the answer to that question is even up for debate is due to the fact that she's a cold fish.
P.S. I think I like this guy...
