Zoloft Does Everything
This makes me stop because it is so off the cuff. I'm pretty positive a man came up with this campaign. I wish that Zoloft did have that effect on me, particularly on days like today. Nope, I was put on Zoloft for a few weeks before my wedding by my GP to "take the edge off" because I was so stressed. It backfired, I was a raging super bitch who never slept. So, Zoloft pretty much made me stay up and be a bitch for even more hours of the day! Now, that would be a slogan! Maybe Valium would be a better fit for Bitch control? Maybe even wine? Maybe an orgasm? Zoloft may work to make you less of a depressed bitch but not cure bitchiness outright.
The more I look at this seemingly innocuous piece of "art" , the more it is offending me. The whole thing screams "Here, take a pill and stop being such a nagging bitch! Please go be a zombie in the corner and leave me alone". Hmmm? I wonder if they have a version of this for kids? Oh yeah, that would probably be the Ritalin that the pediatricians are prescribing children at the behest of their teachers and parents who don't want to be bothered by actual living children. My next question; If we ladies get Zoloft, the kids get Ritalin, what do the men get? I'm just saying. Something to think about.
