Tonight, I heard of this story for the first time. As I was flipping past something I figured would be boring I heard the word “peloton”. Since I avidly follow the Tour, I clicked back and saw that the company that makes the Peloton exercise bike, which connects you to other riders via the internet to form a riding group, a “peloton”, has a commercial that made lib heads explode. Of course I had to see what was up.
It seems that the bad guy, of course a man, in this commercial is an evil sexist. Why? He bought his wife this nefarious oppressing exercise bike. Apparently, that means he is sinister-…ly forcing her into a certain body type and, naturally, blind obedience.
Watch how oppressed she is and feel the rage build.
