All-Male Law Firm Woos Clients With Woman-Hating Holiday Card


Do you need some legal advice, are 100 years old, and wish that women would fucking shut their stupid hag mouths for once? WELL, GREAT NEWS. The law firm of The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown LLP might be right up your alley.

The firm sent out a holiday card this year with a “hilarious” comic on the front. The caption reads, “New seatbelt design: 45% less car accidents!!” (FEWER. IT’S FEWER.) In the accompanying drawing, a man sits in the driver’s seat of a car with a regular seatbelt on, while his wife sits in the passenger seat with a thicker seatbelt restraining her torso and a large black strap covering her nose and mouth. Her eyes bug out in panic and confusion, presumably due to the fact that the “new seatbelt design” restricts her airflow and she’s slowly asphyxiating on the way to T.G.I. Friday’s.

The subtext, of course is that women’s voices and opinions are so profoundly annoying that male drivers cannot help distractedly driving off cliffs and/or plowing into fire hydrants and grannies in a rage.

Wow, I can’t believe you guys wasted all that time in law school when it’s clear that your true calling is in PR.

And yes, it’s “just a joke”—a really really old, really really tired joke about how universally horrible women are. We don’t know anything about the woman in the cartoon except that she’s a woman and the world is safer with tape over her mouth. We get it. We’ve heard it. WE GET IT. OLD TROPE IS OLD.
