This sign would hang from bedroom doors. From tree houses. It was a line drawn in the sand. And it rarely ever worked.
Saying "you can't come here" only made the girls more interested, and more persistent.
This is why us adult men strive for "The man cave" ...yet include a stripper pole.
You think us bros are going to be dancing on that thing? No way. It's a plan B, just in case a woman (or her hot friends) decide to breach the 'dude only' zone and enter our sanctum santorum.
You're totally not allowed. Go away.
What? Not going away?
Ok, come on in.
Can I pour you a drink (or six)?
Oh, look, did you see my stripper pole? Are you any good?
Now that I have explained why men still use the "No girls allowed" approach, Dr. Pepper, I salute you for this following ad:
I love Dr. Pepper, so I'll be trying this out. If it doesn't have the shitty diet aftertaste, I may give it a shot. As for the marketing, not only are they marketing a diet soda to men, but they're adding the 'it's not for women' mantra to make women want it even more.
Or... could it be DP is actually taking the misogynistic approach? Women, what do YOU say? I have more women reading my blog than men, so I am interested in your opinion.
Oh, and just FYI ladies... it may be called a 'man cave,' but when I have one, you're all welcome to visit. (and yes, there will be a stripper pole...)
