Thanks to the anonymous blogger with the huge tits for bringing this to my attention.
Here’s the front page of MomDot.com as of 11:53 PM EST:
Notice anything interesting? Let’s take a closer look:
There are only three possible ways this could have happened:
1. In the interest of capitalizing on the trend to insert feminine words into already existing words, such as BlogHer, herstory, hersterectomy, hersteria, womanhole cover, and womanagement, the marketing genius chose to write “grocHERies” to indicate that shopping for food supplies is obviously something that belongs to women, and this would empower women further.
2. MomDot’s advertising designer is a Nicaraguan man named Felipe who has a problem with the concept of the “ce” and “se” sounds, as evidenced by his constant request for women to have “the chex” with him and his worry about being laid off because of the “rechesshion”.
3. Someone over there is pretty fucking stupid.
It’s sites like this and Shitfully Domestic that make me weep for humanity. Some person or a group of people think that because they’ve been on the internet for many years and maybe took a class in advertising at some community fucking college that they can run an online business. And since the Internet is filled with sheep, the sites get traffic and the owners get egos and think that they actually do have some type of marketable ability.
But then they do something like MomDot, where they insult independent women by telling them to ask permission to buy a vacuum cleaner without checking the best vacuum reviews or the best local pricing, or have a misspelling of one of the easiest words in the English language no less than THREE times on their front page. Or in BD’s case, they have an editorial policy that prohibits their authors from writing anything that might be critical of husbands, and they expect so much from their editors and writers even if they don’t pay them a cent, while the owner makes money hand over fist through advertising. And eventually the world sours on them and realizes that these sites are being run by a bunch of airheaded fucking morons who don’t deserve to run their goddamn household, much less any type of online endeavor.
And this is why even though I have many problems with BlogHer having draconian policies, supporting censorship, ignoring a large portion of women bloggers, and being way too conservative for an online community, they stand head and shoulders above the rest with their professionalism, intelligence, and integrity. Now if only they’d redo their fucking website.
Why doesn’t the world just listen to me and do what I say? Everyone knows we’d be better off.
In other Avita-news, for those of you wondering about “Clearly, You’re Retarded”, don’t worry. The show is still around, but we’re just taking a hiatus for the summer. We’ll be coming back in the fall with new topics, maybe a tweaked format, and new episodes every week!
