    Cool Who feels some commercials are bullying themes?

    One commercial stands out among others as far as bullying maybe it is more showing favortisim?

    The commercial where the little dark haired girl is sorta sad not getting the live PONY cuz "YOU DIDN'T ASk"
    where she gets a sad face cuz she has the toy pony and the nice real pony goes to the pretty blonde girl instead.

    I thought that commercial was BULLYING or at least pit them against eachother?
    Why was the dark haired girl not given the real pony?
    Why did the pretty blonde get it instead?
    DID she ask for it?
    I do not recall her asking for it....

    I'll visit a recurring one as well--the long-running Trix commercials!

    For once, I would like to see the poor rabbit get the cereal. He's been bullied by all those kids who always say "silly rabbit, Trix are for kids".

    If Trix are for kids, I guess they'd steal them from me too if I tried to eat them since I'm over 21...maybe I should see if any kids take them from me if I load them into my cart the next time I'm at the grocery store? (I was and still am a Frosted Flakes guy, but Trix were pretty good too).

    I think I'm missing the point. Where is the bullying in either commercial and I cannot help, but wonder if slight is being made regarding a serious issue. I enjoy a light of heart (*much*), but I'm missing it here, today, in this thread.

    Help me out....
    "I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said, "What for?". I said, "I'm going to buy some sugar".

    Reply to your post.

    I absolutely feel that the commercial about the two girls is bullying.
    The guy bullies the dark haired girl.
    I am not the only one who protested this commercial.
    And absolutely NOT a joke.
    I do feel that some commercials do show some degree of putting somebody down and some degree of bullying.

    The guy in those commercials is mean and I consider that bullying.
    Most people however laugh at that commercial..
    I do not...

    I never have liked being DISSED or bullied.
    I am a vicitm of both...
    so much so that it makes me very upset when I see a little girl
    almost crying in a commercial over a pony..
    so no this is a very serious question.

    Not everyone is a beautiful blonde wealthy person...
    that does not mean they should be treated badly...

    The other commercials show one child being [ teased] tricked? whatever that is?
    But when two children are sitting together and one gets a better thing because they did not ask for it?

    I do find that offensive...
