Supermarket Displays Meat in Underwear Section Online

Postby Australian rePublic » Tue May 04, 2021 5:19 pm

So, for some reason, as this somehow managed to end in the news. So because it's a slow news day I guess, let's discuss this:

Woman has the shuts because girls' underwear on a supermarket website accidentally shows a picture of meat, suggesting that she's meat, and takes a year to complain about it

This is bloody ridiculous. Nobody is suggesting that little girls are pieces of meat. It's obviously as mistake. I mean did you honestly expect Woolworths, Australia's largest supermarket, to know about which photo belongs to every single item avaliable on their online store without any mistakes? And why did it take you a year to complain about it? I believe that this is ridiculous. If you ask me, here is how I would summarise it:

"Today on the Karen news network, someone somewhere makes a mistake"

Bloody ridiculous. What do you guys think?

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Aardern is so deeply in love with human rights and Muslim lives that she's actively going out of her way to refuse to acknowledge China's persecution of Uyghurs. It's impossible to love human rights & Muslim lives more than that!
Until if and when the Spanish language evolves to allow for gender-neutrality to not be impossible, (which will take at least centuries), the concept of "LatinX" is completely ridiculous

Supermarket underwear...I can't get past that, really.

Maybe not an accident. And maybe not malicious either.

Maybe overseas hits on that particular page spiked, and the webmaster didn't like being complicit in pedos getting free and legal soft-core.

The "rick roll" still being in place when prices and the product line have changed, is easily defensible. A better alternative would be taking down the out-of-date catalogues, but that might be seen as covering up price changes. Borking just one product that is getting suspicious hits, would be pretty good work imo.

The store lying about why it happened is also defensible. Whatever attracts the least attention to that part of the catalogue. It's an awkward subject and I don't have anything more to add.

I am a frequent customer to 24 hour supermarkets. In my long nocturnal life, I don't know that I've once come across underwear that wasn't designed to be peed in for sale in a supermarket. A Walmart, sure. But that's not what I think of when I think 'supermarket.'

Though strangely now that I think about it, I did actually buy underwear at a gas station on a truck route.

:roll: yes, I've seen this bullshit complaining about the "Karen" being a slur before. Other people have addressed this complaint perfectly, so I'll just quote what they said "Complaining about the term "Karen" is a real Karen thing to do". Now let's get into why it's bullshit to say that Karen is a gendered slur

Let's set aside the fact that there are male Karens out there and let's only assume that there are female Karens. It's not true, but let's assume for argument's sake that it is. Karens are usually abnoxious, racist, rude people who think they're better than everyone else. Karens like to harrass low income customer service people or people of other races. Examples of Karens include, but aren't limited to, the woman who tore down her neighbour's Australian Aboriginal flag in Mildura, Australia, the Karen who walked into a hardware shop and harassed a female employee (yes, the victim of the Karen was female) when asked to wear a mask at a time when masks were compulsory, etc. This kind of behaviour is unacceptable, and I'll continue to criticise people for that kind of deplorable behaviour, and I could give a fuck if someone is stupid enough to think that I'm sexist because of it

So if you order that product from the website, what comes in the mail? Underwear or meat? This is a pressing question that needs to be answered at once.

We have no Wal-Mart equivalent in Australia. Supermarkets and department stores are separate entities, but most major supermarkets sell small clothing items, such as underwear

On the topic of Karens, I suppose they don't know about these people.

Looking at the topic and the article itself, it reminds me of those days in my school where we did some database-related project. The one where I was doing a book-review website and the pictures fetched also included a photo of a school and someone's face just because. My point is, it does seem like an honest mistake to me, or a screw-up on the supermarket/database's part. I should not be throwing glass stones, I also do get one or two things which would flare me up, but I really do like to think that I am better than this.
