Sexier than a Librarian

LAX Terminal 3 shouts Sony's gratuitously offensive and sexist advertisement in giant letters. Perhaps not only librarians of both sexes, but friends and fans of librarians will consider boycotting this product.

 

"Sexier than a librarian. The Reader. From Sony."

 

UPDATE: Sony has answered us.

 

Here's my response to Sony:

"Sorry Sony -- you just proved our point. You have conceded that what you meant by "Sexier" than a librarian, is -- and I quote YOU -- "breathtaking," "incredibly smooth," "just can't take your eyes away from," and "something that emotionally attracts you."

 

In other words, by "sexy" you meant "sexy." And you think librarians would be the appropriate counterpoise, the "Before" example to your "After." That is inappropriate, offensive, and boycott-worthy."

 

Do you agree?
