Equality is Soooo Complicated!

The other day I saw this television commercial for Hudson City Savings Bank. A little girl is talking about how both men and women can be doctors or nurses. After her rather long and roundabout explanation, the words "Life is complicated" (or something like that) appear on the screen. How many people are lying awake at night trying to put their minds around the fact that women can be doctors and men can be nurses? Honestly, if a 5-year-old can figure it out, it can't be that confusing.

No. It's totally confusing. I mean, if women have equality, who's gonna be the baby-slave?

Uh . . . poor people?

We're outsourcing baby slavery to little Indonesian boys and girls.
