Dear Daddy

I know this is the season of giving and happiness and time spent with family and all that jazz but in my opinion there is no better time to have this conversation. Like the girl in this spot I was raised to be strong and independent. I was told that no boy, teen or man should ever be allowed to call me names, touch me in a way I didn’t like and above all else no man should ever hit me.

I am lucky, I have never been raped, assaulted or hot by any man. However, I, like the girl in the spot, been called a slut, bitch, c**t, whore and many other awful names by teen boys who think they are funny. It is not funny. It never will be funny and well no one should be allowed to say those things.

So please watch this spot below and don’t allow the violence to start. Not just for girls either. We live in an amazing country that does amazing things and we all have the right to enjoy a peaceful and safe place to call home.

This holiday season, let’s practice peace.

Ladies, Thank Nike.

Okay ladies,

This was just to good not to post.

Nike released a 2 minute ‘welcome winter’ spot and the stars are hot enough to melt the snow before it actually arrives.

I think the ad has something to do with their new super warm line that is to be available soon and thank god because it is getting frosty in Canada!

This will help you warm up I swear!

I know I am a big believer in gender equality and all that jazz and I am. So to make it fair, every person in this ad is super attractive and not because they are size 2 and super skinny but because they are FIT and HEALTHY!

Crazy thought I know!

So thank you Nike for that amazing spot! Couldn’t tell you what it was advertising but damn it’s fine.

Sorry, Skipper.
