Gizmodo's 10 Most Sexist Gadgets: Are These Things Funny or Offensive?

Gizmodo's 10 Most Sexist Gadgets: Are These Things Funny or Offensive?

Gizmodo put together a gallery of the 10 Most Sexist Gadgets Ever Made (please click the link for the gadgets, as many of them are NSFW), and I'm finding myself out of breath laughing one minute and completely offended the next.

I've actually posted the USB Pole Dancer before, thinking it would make a funny gag gift, but some of these things on this list are pretty horrifying. The Axe Mouse Pad?! I want to know what marketing genius thought that one up. And then there's the gadget that needs no words, the lovely Control Your Woman Remote. Oh, wait, I do have one word: Delete.

I don't know if my sense of humour is slighty gone on this but none of them really made me laugh. They just all seem very tacky, and well, stupid. It's also kind of annoying, as the sexism joke got old ages ago.

I think they're offensive, but I'm more offended by the fact that the whole list only had 'sexy' gadgets geared towards men. What about the ladies? We need sexy gadgets too!

I think, if nothing else, that we can be pretty sure that some of these gadgets will be the closest that any guy using them will get to the real thing. What that really means is that the guy, though not objectified, does become a pathetic being that deserves our pity. Because really, if you're spending the day double-clicking the mouse underneath your skirted mousepad, then that's probably the *only* mouse you're double-clicking.

Some are more "tacky" than "offensive" (like that soap dispenser... who would ever actually use something like that?). The Axe mousepad, though? Um, yeah. That's offensive. But then, I find myself offended by pretty much every marketing scheme Axe puts on.
