Everybody loves Raymond – Not.

Alison Cameron, freelance journo for the Sydney Morning Herald writes an interesting conversation starter about male dick head stereotype on the tele – Everybody loves lazy stereotyping of male roles.

In Alison’s words, “Ray’s dead – let’s party.” Well said.

My wife and I were talking about this the other night – we blokes do get a bashing on TV, because it is not politically correct to display women in similar roles. This is especially so in advertising/marketing where it is OK for the guys to be dumb but never the women. How many ads are there featuring a women and her boyfriend, where the boyfriend is insensitive and stupid? Most of them I would say.
