This commercial is really great. There are so many things I could say about why we need this message (and they have nothing to do with peanut butter Cheerios).
Look, I've been bombarded for the last few years with constant messages about why girls and women and moms are so awesome, but boys and men and dads are awesome too. Let me say that again.
MEN ARE AWESOME TOO.
They are. Not *all* men are awesome, but have you noticed that not *all* women are awesome either?
Yes, I know the feminist movement (which has brought about many great things) is a reaction to the crappiness of how women have been treated throughout history. I get that. But can we not let the pendulum swing too far the other way now?
Women are not better than men. Men are not better than women. We need both parts of the team.
Let's give men some respect. Let's not try to convince them that we can do every job better than they can so we don't need them around. If we keep this up, they will start to believe us. And it's not true.
Let's all just give dads a little more credit. It's a hard job, my goodness.
