    I don't find it sexist at all.

    I do, however, have an overwhelming urge to go shop at Target now.

    It reminds me of the Vitruvian Man.

    I didn't see anything sexist about it at first glance; based on the clothing and pose, I'd guess it's supposed to be evocative of making snow angels.

    However, thinking about it a little, I think having the woman crotch roughly at the center of the 'target' could be a subliminal message.

    I'll tell you what I think. I think Minneapolis mother of two Lisa Ray needs to find something more productive to do with her obviously excessive amounts of free time.

    No. That's just retarded for that mother to say that.

    Now if she had on black leather and had a whip in her hand, that'd be a different story, but as she is, I see nothing wrong.

    I doubt I would have seen any "subliminal message" in it if it hadn't been suggested to me beforehand. Kinda like Zeppelin's little toolshed.

    I think it's pretty damn funny once you think about it. I highly doubt their intentions were "sexist" but it does make the 12 year old in me laugh.

    I think the mother just needs a little RAAAAAAAPE.

    srsly though, she needs to do something actually productive.

    I wouldn't have thought anything if I had seen this without seeing this topic first. I don't see how it's sexist, but I can see someone with a broader imagination than they're willing to admit to having, finding a problem with it.

    BULLSEYE

    Now that we got that out of the way...no, its not sexist, maybe coincidental though...
    Even still, its winter attire, and not very provocative winter attire at that.

    Rape is never funny; not even on the internet.
    As for the ad, it's pretty tame.

    Is that because the Internet is "SERIOUS BUSINESS!!1111"?
