Superbowl Sexism: The Thumb Edition

Forgoing any of the obvious critiques (e.g. the bathtub, the nudity, the variety of responses she elicits) the fact that the powers that be at Motorola obviously used a thumb double  for Megan Fox’s wide, or clubbed, thumb (apparently, this is called brachydactyly) is one of the more ridiculous offenses of this years Superbowl commercials. Rest assured, ladies in entertainment, if they can’t pick apart your weight, breasts, skin tone, or cellulite….there are always your thumbs. What’s a little more surprising is that this isn’t the first time that Megan’s thumbs have received so much attention. But, how we do wish it would be the last.
