Flap over Tide ads glorifying stay-at-home dad – Eye on Parenting Blog – CBS News

Blogging this so I can find it again for a future freshman writing course. (It’s too late in the term to introduce a  new text, but this could spark some good discussion.)

Advertisements for laundry products often feature women, but new commercials from Tide feature a stay-at-home dad. He’s shown throughout the ads folding a small child’s laundry.

We here at “Eye on Parenting” must admit it’s kind of hypnotizing to see this man fold clothing. However, there seems to be much more going on in this advertisement than housework. We’ll let you be the judge.
