    As a lawyer (well, by training anyway) the only thing I find offensive about that ad is that it refers to MTM suits as custom. Patently false advertising.

    As a member of the bar, I don't find that ad offensive at all. [​IMG]

    I never heard so much whining and sniveling in my life as when I played intramural flag football in law school.

    And I work closely with 7th grade boys preparing for their bar mitzvahs.

    She looks fine to me.

    The only thing that offends me about that story is the criticism of the ad. Undermines gender equality? Give me a break.

    I don't understand why women would have a problem with this. She's got him by the tie. Clearly a dominant position. [​IMG]

    Man, it sucks having idiots like this as colleagues though.

    Yes, although nowhere as much as it did when I was in law school with these self-important pissants for three years.

    At least they weren't told to "obey The Suit."

    Is this a reflection of the overall low threshod for being outraged, of the legal community? or perhaps society as a whole.
