Saw this ad [for online takeeaway firm Marvin.ie] while surfing a well known adult website. Did they think this was OK? Did they think that no one will talk about it out of embarrassment? Who does their PR?

Nice to know that some of the GAA followers are born-again Neanderthals.

We don’t have enough sexism in this country at a national, institutional and business level so it is nice to see individual knuckle-draggers like this one make a solid contribution to the cause too.

Pity he picked on a woman with 1000s of followers on her GAA Instagram page who promptly shared the exchange.

….but but but it’s ok. In an exciting further exchange of messages, he was able to explain what happened and was sure the law was on his side.

No need for the language.

FIGHT!

Pimped out van rental company Wicked Campers – Good craic or casual misogyny?

Their Australian branch got in a bit of warm water down under for it a few years back but not for the misogyny mind you…

Or not at all?

YOU be the judge.

Lidl Ireland have just published research saying girls need more encouragement to participate in team sports on HerFamily.ie.

Today I saw that they are advertisinggirls’ t shirts featuring unicorns & boys’ saying ‘best player’ & ‘team supporter’.

I am absolutely fuming at the blatant sexism not to mention stunning hypocrisy.​ ​I’m delighted that they continue to support Ladies Gaelic Football but this ‘serious support’ should also apply to the clothing they have for sale…
