Advertisement tells women they are pregnant
October 30, 2019
Some asshole company producing shit for breeders, decided that it would be a great idea to send unsolicited baby congratulation cards to random women. They also tried to make it not look like an advert, signing the cards from "Jenny" and trying to make it look like handwriting. The company of course claims they did nothing wrong and it was opt-in, but that doesn't explain why so many women who didn't want these cards got them. The article also points out the company has a history of shady advertising and a low rating for resolving complaints about their adverts.

Of course there was the obligatory comment about how hurtful it would be to someone who was dealing with a miscarriage or infertility, but I was pleased to see that the article highlighted why this is also in poor taste for (implied) CF women:

Quote

Ms Hunter Acoster, who is studying at Princeton University in New Jersey, said: "If I was able to talk to Jenny, I would want to tell her that, aside from being an idiotic marketing strategy that will end up alienating potential clients/customers, this was basically just a cruel joke that only resulted in a stressful phone call with my parents."

On Reddit, EllyNeko said she has undergone sterilisation surgery, and the card prompted an awkward conversation with her family.

She told the BBC: "They need to realise that this 'advertisement' is in poor taste at best and hurtful at worst.

I bet that conversation included a lot of gratuitous bingos, just when she thought she was finally free of them.

It sounds like the real life Jenny B is a serial breeder. From Utah, no less. I’ll bet she’s the type of woman who has no identity outside of motherhood and can’t imagine that other women either will not or cannot choose the same life for themselves.

have a feeling just a made up name.

CERTIFIED HOSEHEAD!!!

people (especially women) do not give ONE DAMN about what they inflict on children
and I defy anyone to prove me wrong:

The selfish wants of adults outweigh the needs of the child.

If I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet I'll put shoes on my pets.

Mankind and its needs (wants) are like unto a black hole. It devours all available resources and it never is full: it merely grows larger and demands more.

Definition of 'wealthy': Anyone who makes more/has more than you do.

Someone pointed out that I'm a realist. And all along I thought I was just a pessimist crossed with a cynic.

Entitlement, thy name is mooooooooooooooo

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove
they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
Add to this that, many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are
citizens, will receive free insurance paid for by those who are.""

I am confused enough already. I do not need outside help.

I think it is really dumb but I'd be more than happy to trash the card in exchange for keeping the $245 in gift cards.
I'd sell those suckers in a heartbeat.

I can definitely see a bunch of moos/wanna moos getting into a lather over this.

Didn't some men get them, too? Are they claiming the men "opted in"? Sheesh.
