Aw, geez. No offense intended to all the women out there who don't watch "chick flicks".
And I'm not trying to insinuate that all women are chicks. Apparently I used a politically insensitive term to refer to the romantically gushy genre that, in my opinion, appears to be oriented mainly toward the female gender. Please let me know what the PC term is.
The point that I was trying to make is that football, although watched by a very significant minority of women, is still aimed at testosterone-poisoned guys. Beer. John Madden. Cheerleaders. Big honkin' trucks. It's not as slimy as McMahon's XFL but it's not Jennifer Love Hewitt in "If Only"
Gimme a break. I'm married to a naval officer. We're raising a girl. I've been in favor of women in the submarine force ever since I've seen how guys behave in a men's-locker-room crew. I'm keenly aware that chains like Home Depot & Lowes appreciate that most of the home-improvement decisions & purchases are made by women. Maybe FedEx needs to look into the gender bias of their revenue, too.
We'll know that Madison Avenue is trying to tap into the real budget decision-makers when network TV professional football games have male cheerleaders or Martha Stewart. Or even, long overdue, women players.
