Why I Love. . . Sarah Haskins

I love Sarah Haskins. I mean, I really love Sarah Haskins. She is my hero of the hour. Why? Because she skewers the ridiculous advertisements, movies, and TV shows that are aimed at women but too often seem like they’re aimed at imbeciles. And she does it all in the most hilarious, sarcastic way imaginable.

Current TV is home to Haskins's video series, Target: Women, in which Haskins takes a few minutes to dissect some of the media’s most baffling, off-base, or downright insulting female-focused content. Her points are totally on-, well, target, and they’re presented with plenty of irony and cynicism. Having seen one too many Yaz commercials that make my skin crawl, for example, it’s refreshing to finally hear a voice pipe up to call out the absurdity of stuff that's pandering to women. The format is not unlike that of The Soup, but a little more upbeat and with a more specific focus.

After the jump you can see some of my favorite videos, like the one about yogurt ("It’s the official food of women!") and the one about wedding shows (in which a thin woman is called a “chubster” in her wedding dress, among other things). Seriously, why doesn’t this woman have her own segment on The Daily Show already? Maybe we should start a petition . . .

Anyway, to check out Target: Women,
