WTF Is Up With This Year’s Super Bowl Commercials?

Yes, I am nostalgic for Cindy Crawford's tank top.

For fuck’s sake, is every single commercial on during the Super Bowl about women emasculating the men in their lives and then being righteously punished for it? ┬áIs this evidence of some kind of violent backlash against the trend we’ve been discussing, that women are making more money than men? Does it reflect recession anxiety? Have they always been this bad, or am I just more sensitive because we’ve been talking about this stuff? The worst ones I’ve seen so far tonight are this one for the Dodge Charger:

What happened to beer commercials with lots of boobies in them? That seems totally fine to me. But this kind of angry-funny misogyny just seems sick.
