So I’ve been watching Mad Men on Netflix (I’ve never watched it before) and I’m wondering why everyone is so in love with Don Draper. Yes he’s handsome and manly and great at advertising. But he’s a whorebag, mean, a liar and a whorebag (did I say that already?). So why is everyone so in love with him? Because deep down, many men want to be him . They want to be handsome and manly and sleep with any woman they want but still have a family at home. They want a beautiful wife that cooks, cleans and looks good all of the time. They want to drink at work, have a secretary that does his bidding and go out with the guys before heading home.
But really, Don Draper is a jerk. He’s mean, a sexist, a homophobe and a hypocrite. But of course, people think he’s great and that his wife is the bad person. She’s no prize, but she shouldn’t take all of the blame. It belongs with Don Draper.
What do you guys think?
