Launching Menopause Products With Poise.
Ad Shop Organic and Kimberly Clark has just dropped what it dubs as a "taboo shattering conversation," around its line of products geared toward women who are going through menopause.
For some reason, this reminds me of a bit from Margaret Cho:
"I could never sell douche because I do not look fresh at all. I hate those commercials, anyway. I got so mad one day because I was watching TV and in the morning, I saw this woman and she was in a Monistat 7 commercial and that same day, I saw the same woman in an Always maxi-pad commercial. And I'm like, "Look, honey, I know way too much about your vagina." -Margaret Cho
Jokes, aside, I do applaud Kimberly Clark and Organic for tackling such a subject. If it gets women talking, great. I'm just not sure the subject really needs an open mike, so to speak.
Also, I must say, the name "Poise" is slightly off putting. I don't know if it sounds condescending because it's attached to the "taboo shattering" rhetoric, or if it's because the subject is nothing more than a storm in a teacup.
Either way, the word "poise" should be reserved for one woman and one woman only.
And that woman is Meryl Streep.
