I've seen this vid several times before and always thought it was rather patronizing. Targeted toward more of an patriarchal audience. Drifting slightly toward tolerant subordination......of the gentleman. It's a shame he's portrayed as being so clueless.

Minus 10 punches on your man card for admitting to watching "Sex and the City"

I was not offended but rather thought it a bit silly. Certainly not laugh producing. Sigh.

I'm afraid I didn't get the video. Couldn't identify with either party at all.

OK - it was dumb.

I think sometimes, to make a point, one has to go beyond the subtle. I see this video as taking neither side - rather, it exaggerates both to make it's point. I personally take it to show that men and women ARE indeed "different." I don't see it as "one is wrong" and the "other is right." They are just "different." Recognizing our difference goes a long way in smoothing relationships between the two sexes. Of course, I could be wrong - I'll ask my wife.

We all (me included) tend to take offense at stuff far to often, finding any way possible - "how can I find a way to make this about me" - and not just let things be what they are.
