KFC slaps men to sell chicken

Would a scene in which a man slapped a woman across the face, after she’d just given him a chicken snack, be deemed acceptable for a fast food advert? Of course not. But what if we do a gender switch? Hilarious, apparently, or so the marketing people at KFC appear to believe:

I urge supporters of J4MB to boycott KFC until and unless the company withdraws this advert. I’ve just signed an online petition which will be sent to John Cywinski, the President of KFC USA, and ask you to do the same. It will take very little time:

To put this in a ‘real world’ context, let’s remind ourselves of the overwhelming evidence that women are at least as aggressive as men with respect to their intimate partners:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    These sickening double standards are everywhere in the media when it comes to violence against men. By now, people should have cottoned onto the fact that until this type of misandry is banished from the media – and buried in the history books where it belongs – we have no hope of eradicating the perception that it’s ok to hit men because the media has such a massive influence on the young and upcoming generation. Men (and women) must complain at every opportunity and boycott these misandric companies in order to render this man-bashing unacceptable. Until people complain, spread the word and boycott these companies this sad trend will continue. It’s as simple as that! I’ve noticed the trend amongst advertising campaigns to have grown exponentially over the last 2 or 3 decades when it comes to violence against men and I feel unparalleled sympathy for our young generation of boys. It’s up to this adult generation to put a stop to this for the sake of our Sons so get complaining fellas! I’ve just signed the petition and thank you, Mike, for raising it here on what is becoming a fantastic platform for men’s awareness.

    Here’s a couple of vids that demonstrate more of this trend:
