Remember the good ole days when beer commercials didn't portray women as shrewish, crazyfaced people? When they would flop around in congo lines, usually string bikini-clad? According to Erin Gibson, host of Current TV's show Modern Lady, those days are over. "Women in beer commercials have gone from big-boobied eye candy to the enemy." (And that "to the enemy" part was in a slow-mo voice, which there should be a font for.) According to Gibson, humiliating ladyfolk physically or psychologically is the norm for beer companies these days. Have you noticed a shift in the representation of women in beer ads?
