Hi.  I was  walking  around   Boston  today  when  I  noticed  a  billboard  that was  about  selling  alcohol.

It  said  :  "Man,  may  you  die   at  the  age  of  95  shot in  your  sleep  by  a  jealous  spouse."   I  found  this  thing  to  be  very  anti-male  and wrong.  I couldnt  believe  that   people  walked  right  by  it  and  thought   there  was   nothing   wrong  with  this  picture.

If  this   was  a   billboard  advertising  that  women  should  be  killed  in  their  sleep  by  jealous  men,  women   everywhere  would  be  pissed  off  and  demand  that  the  billboard   be  taken  down.

I  dont  like  Anti  Male   advertisements.

I  plan  on  writing a  letter   to   the   National   Coalition of  Free  Men  to  see   if  they  can  do  something  about  it.  OR  maybe  I  will get  some  people  to   start  a   protest   or  boycott.  

What  do  you  think  ?

I can think of worse ways to go, if your spouse is 25.

Blackmanx - Can you get a picture of it?  Who is the advertiser?  Let's have a look at it and see what we can do from here.

Historicly, I've heard (and used) the referance "May you be hit by a bus you never saw , or shot by a jealous husband as you sleep.", but only amongst men, in private, in jest.

Personally, I don't take exception to the message (depends on the pic) but I question the use of the word "spouse"- When did this billboard go up?


Please provide more information about the company that is the sponsor for that advertisement.
 do what I need to do to protect my loved ones, friends, and family. This is what men do.


The  anti  male  billboard  was  I  think  an  advertisement  about  a   bottle  of  alcohol.   It  used  these  words  :  "May you die in bed at 95, shot by a jealous spouse."  The  person  whom   it  said  may die  was  a  male.  If  it had  been  a female  that the  advertisement   said may  die  in  her sleep,  shot  by a   jealous  spouse,   feminists  would  have  been  all  over  the  company, demanding  that  the  billboard  be  taken  down  because  it advertises  VAW  (violence  against  women).   Since  it's a   man  intended  as  the victim in  the  joke,  it's  OKAY.    I  hate  how  people  are  biased and  moronic.   I'll  get  you  more  info  on  it  later.

"The anti male billboard was I think an advertisement about a bottle of alcohol. It used these words : "May you die in bed at 95, shot by a jealous spouse.""

The spouse referred to is (or ought to be) the husband of the woman involved.  The original idea behind this saying was the hope that one would be capable of having a sexual affair at the age of 95.


This billboard doesn't seem anti-male to me, it's just some crappy humor. I agree that it is stupid and they could have come up with a better idea. And indeed if the genders were reversed, the feminists would jump all over it and have a cry about it. But should MRAs be just as annoying and whiny as them ? Isn't it better to concentrate on the important issues ? :--(
o pity for feminazis.


I've heard that particular line before and it's meant as a "wink-wink, nudge-nudge. between us guys" sort of thing. Essentially, it's supposed to translate to "live life to the fullest guys".

Actually, it's not a bad sentiment in my book. Why live your life in service to others at the expense of your own happiness?


If you want to get involved with married women, that's fine with me; so long as I don't have to listen to any whining when the DNA tests on your own kids don't pan out.

The way to deal with this sort of thing is to write to the company telling them you will nevwe buy their product again.

Then come to the board with full information and we can do the same (not mentioning the board).

Ten adverse replies will get management atention for sure provided they do not think it is an organised response.

NCFM are probably doing a great deal of good stuff already.
