I'm writing in regards to a commercial that aired Monday night on ABC Family during the A Year Without a Santa Claus. This ad began with a close-up of a muscular man, who appeared to be flexing his muscles into a mirror. As the camera panned backwards, you could see that this full-grown man was wearing a bra, a slip, and heeled pumps. This is completely inappropriate for airing during children's programming. I was watching this with my young son!! Luckily, we had digitally recorded it, and I skipped over the commercial as soon as I realized what it was about. I do not feel that I should have to explain to my son why a grown man is wearing women's underwear because of a commercial he saw during a CHILDREN"S CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. I'm disgusted that I even needed to write this letter. Please, in the future, take more care as to what commercials you are airing. We are very responsible parents, and pay close attention to what our children watch on TV. Since we can't always edit the commercials ourselves, further occurrences of inappropriate commercials could very well lead us to taking our business elsewhere.
Of course, I didn't sign it Redhead Mommy, and I also removed my blog link from my email signature ;)
