Does that commercial piss you off or is it just me that thinks this is part of an overall plan to feminize men?

I'm surprised at this coming from you. Doesn't seem "baja like" to have this reaction. What exactly "pisses you off" about this? It's supposed to be funny, not some profound social commentary.

Again I have no problem with the actor "throwing like a girl" my issue is with media in general portraying men as weak and silly compared to their women counter part. For example the car commercial where the two women are talking over the features of the car and the camera pans to her husband sitting behind the wheel of the showroom car vigorously working the steering wheel left and right, camera pans back to the two women in business suits. Sales women comments, "That's all right". Women customer responds, "Is it??"

Now each one of these commercials on there own can be taken as funny but if you look at the whole media tread there appears to be a undertaking to portray men as child like and their wives as stoically enduring the childish behavior. Young minds are watching these ads as well and to some extent they learn their gender identity from them. Granted it's subtle but none the less effective.

Now this I agree with. It is a common theme in commercials (particularly for beer) and also in a lot of sitcoms. The men are shlubs, the women are hot. I think this approach works it you are targeting men, but I'm not clear on how this is perceived by women. Either way, it doesn't make me angry in any way.

I just think it's funny, which is what VW intended. They've been doing funny commercials for thirty years.

Can someone please explain what is meant by "nancy girl" and how it relates to this commercial?

To me, the guy sucks at throwing a ball, but he's trying to teach his kid anyway. Seems like a good message to me.

Or at least that's how I took it. That someone gets "he throws like a girl, therefore he's a girl, and since he's a boy, that's somehow a bad thing" out of a commercial like this probably would say a lot about that person's character, wouldn't it?

Far less than your leap that men are being "feminized", whatever the hell that means.

Can you elaborate?

What is masculine? What is feminine?

Got it, so let me get this straight.

If you suck at throwing a ball, you are less of a man than someone who doesn't? Is it just as long as you don't "throw like a girl", that's the cutoff? Or is there some sort of sliding scale where those with better arms (strength, velocity) are better men? Because if that's the case I'm probably twice the man you are.

Or was my b**** ass comment the one about how spending time with your kid no matter what is a good message? Weren't there people in this very forum, some of your conservative friends, even, who started an entire thread on the importance of being a good dad? Does this somehow not count?

Either way you answer, guess who's the dick?

I think they're just mad because the "Throwing Like a Girl" thing was more widely acceptable before Obama came in and personally discredited the generalization.

Liberalized males are quite effeminate. I also find they tend toward being self-loathers.

Conservative males are often repressed homosexuals, which is about as self-loathing as one can get.

Funny how gay-baiting is OK if you're a liberal. I'm always amused by that one.
