Today I went to department stores to shop for a better pillow (somehow I strained my neck last night). While trying to find my way out of tons of pillows on the rack, I can't help but to notice that every single plastic pillow cover bag has a picture of either a blonde or a brunette female. Some with eyes closed, some with eyes open and looking at you as if she..., Okay, I am not going to go there but you see the question of why they even show that particular facial expression is debatable. However what I really want to say is that why does every pillow cover bag have a picture of a woman? When have pillows become feminine products, and men are regarded as beasts who can sleep on top of anything? While on my way to uncover the most hideous act of sexism by pillow manufacturers in recently history, I reported my finding to a store manager and demand that all pillows in the store be removed from racks until pillow manufacturers agree to print pictures of males on the cover bags for half of the pillows manufactured. I was told to get my ass out of the store.
