Re: Insulting Commercial

I LOVE this song! I think its funny and cute. It also gets stuck in your head for hours and hours.. but it's still cute. Every time I see it, it reminds me of all of my male friends and boyfriend. I thinks its clever and no matter how hard I search, I have a really hard time finding something in it that insults women.
By the way, your little hero, Helen Reddy, isn't exactly the best person to be all googly over. The composer of "I am Woman" was a man and he happened to be a foreigner. EBcause of work permit rights, he had a hard time collecting straight from the companies when the song became huge and Ms. Reddy just decided not to pay him his fair share. He finally had to sue her in 1998 to get royalties she had withheld from him since 1972. He got some, but not nearly the change that she pocketed. So, does it really surprise you that she sold out and handed over this "women's anthem" to a fast food place? She's in it for the money, honey.
