Maxipad Company Replies to Man's Facebook Rant With Awe-Inspiring Sarcasm

Last week, a guy named Richard Neill posted a long, funny comment on UK maxipad maker Bodyform's Facebook page about how the company had lied to him through their advertising campaigns over the years, leading him to believe that periods involved a lot of blue liquid, extreme sports, and fun music. It received nearly 85,000 likes. Instead of ignoring it, Bodyform responded with the video above, featuring CEO Caroline Williams (played by an actress) apologizing to Richard personally, explaining that the company needed to lie to protect men from "the blood coursing from our uteri like a crimson landslide." And then she drinks blue liquid and farts. Amazing.

Re: Richard's FB post: What is with dudes using "the female" as a noun? I don't get it. I know it's grammatically accurate, but it's so clinical and makes me think that the person using it thinks that women are part of a separate species. I haven't read a post where women use "the male" in the same context, but maybe that's just the media I read? Who knows. I think I've seen the dark parts of the internet, but I haven't yet seen someone use "the male" in the same, somewhat otherizing way...
