Article Information

Background A horribly offensive new steak joint was coming to Ottawa.
Reason The restaurant's advertising was explicitly misogynist and got people talking. Naturally, they needed a killjoy feminist to comment as well.
Comment I was pleasantly surprised to see that most of the online comments to the article were against the advertising. It's nice to see that sometimes, the buzzkill feminist is actually stating a popular opinion!
Outcome The restaurant has opened so it is yet to be seen how long it will stay open or whether there will be met with more criticism.
